My hands hurt when I am using the ps3 controller for longer than one hour. It is too small for my hands. Are there good alternative controllers I can use that are a little bit bigger? The xbox controller fits perfectly and I never have any problems when playing on a xbox.

This seems like a shopping recommendation to me (offtopic). – Matthew Read Apr 3 '11 at 22:50

Power A offers a controller that has the same configuration and larger size of an Xbox 360 controller, the Pro Elite Wireless Controller. It does have a bunch of varying reviews on Amazon however, and I have no experience with it so I can't recommend it either way. enter image description here

It's not necessary that the controller has the same configuration as the xbox controller. The most important factor is the size. Can anybody actually recommend a controller that he/she is using? – bitboxer Apr 3 '11 at 13:06
Understood, it also is larger and similar in size to the 360 controller, so fits that need. – Doozer Blake Apr 3 '11 at 13:52
