Same here. It's too small and both the frontal buttons along with the left thumbstick are placed at awkward angles or too closely together with too many buttons for my liking. As controllers go, I consider the Xbox 360 controller the pinnacle to date in terms of ergonomics, distribution of weight, and functionality (for a console controller).
This leaked photo, if accurate, disappoints me. It doesn't appear to take any particularly useful radical steps away from the loathed dual-shock design except as to be chunkier. I am not at all convinced that such is sufficient to rectify what I find uncomfortable about the current dual-shock design, and I'm singularly unimpressed. The whole screen hulla balloo seems to be a gimmick to me at this point.
