I know I'm in a minority but I still think it sounds interesting/fun.

This thing gets good reviews all round. beats the crap out of the PS3 controller apparently.

the ps3 controller is basically the same design as the ps1 dual shock/ps2 controller from what i've seen.

The PS3 controller apparently has tilt sensing.

Everything I've seen so far about the Wii controller makes is seem very fun.

Yes the PS3 controller has tilt sensoring. As long as it can be used as a fishing rod I don't care.

Can anyone tell me what the wierd square on the middle of the xbox 360 controller is for?

it's a circle, it's for turning the controller on, it also shows the battery level

Serious? I'm talking about a new gizmo, some square thing, like a touch pad or something, I have read something about it but haven't seen it.

Didn't Asher say the shock function is removed from the PS3 controller? Dunno if that's true or not, but sucks if it is.

I don't even notice the shock function anymore and don't care if its going. Tilt sensoring sounds like it would be shit, but fortunately I can't see any potentially good games utilising it at all.

I don't think you're in the minority anymore. I think most people are excited about the controller now.

It's also for accessing the PS3 OS HUD...just like the X on the Xbox 360 controller. ;)
