    I think you'll find most of the old time WO players use the D-Pad.

    Yepp. I've been a D-padder since 1995. Ok, there was no stick available back then... but I've tried the stick numerous times and never got stuck at it...

    The main reason why I don't like it is because the akward position on the DS3. It is placed far to high up and tilts way too far. Turning rapidly left and right I feel is almost impossible for me. Also the frequent barrel rolling in HD makes the D-pad much more suitable to me.

    Is there any evidence that the D-Pad is actually better than the stick (e.g. the highest high scores), or is it just a matter of what you've gotten used to?

    This for me. I started WipEout long before the first Dual Shock was produced. If memory serves me right, it was released some time after 2097, but before Wip3out. Got a DS and Wip3out and hated using the sticks to I stuck to the d-pad, never ever changed.

    Well Mad Ice uses the D-Pad,and I'm pretty sure Asayyeah does as well.
    I think it's a combination of reasons,the dual analog didn't come out until after 2097 had been released,so most of us had gotten used to the D-Pad or were using a NeGcon controller.

    Multibodydynamics worded it perfectly on why I don't use the analog stick,that would probably be the same reason others choose the D-Pad.

    If they had a controller that had the analog repositioned and shaped like the D-Pad that would be the best of both worlds.

    Since I dn't have any old habits to fight, I use stick.
    Oh, and motion for pitchcontrol. Works nicely once you adapt.

    D-Pad + Motion Pitch. The best controls ever IMHO.
