I guess my hands are larger then the norm because the ps3 controller (and ps1/2 for that matter) just seems so small. As for the hard drive swapping, i do wish i could slap a 1tb HD on my xbox. I wouldn't mind getting a PS3 to have one just in case a game comes out i want to play... but 400 bucks to have a console i play every now and then is too much right now. Maybe if this "slim" ps3 rumors turn out to be true i could sink my teeth into it.
Oddly enough one of my most hated features of the ps3 is the bullshit glossy curved top that looks like you couldn't set anything on top of it without it falling off. I almost wish consoles would just go to old NES style boxy looks again or maybe make them look somewhat like a home entertainment piece should look (blend in next to the reciever/dvd player/etc)
