Is it possible to turn off the analog on the PS3 controller? The xbox 360 is known for a crappy pad. But the PS3 analog is so fucked up with the slightest movement it gyrates and inputs a lot of random directions which is annoying seeing how psn is already half assed. At the same time there isn’t really a game good enough to bother paying for online again.

Short of opening up the controller and disconnecting the sticks, not really. Unless you get a third-party controller with that function, or a PS2-PS3 adapter and use a PSX Digital controller.
