I was just glancing at my ps3 controller from the top and looking at the word Sixaxis upside-down when I noticed it. Am I an idiot for taking this long to realize it? What other secret palindromes are hidden from my diseased, dislexic mind?

Be honest, how many of you already knew this?

Huh. It is, isn't it? I don't own a PS3 so I never really put it together. Touche Sony.

I had no idea.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's intentional since the main characteristic of the controller is symmetrical analog sticks. That's the kind of pretentious crap that Sony was doing back then. I admire the cleverness but just gives me a damn controller that works better.

Not to spoil the Sixaxis party, but I saw it as soon as I first saw it written down. Sorry guys.

I just picked up my Sixaxis and turned it upside down, and my brain proceeded to exit my skull through the back.

Not gonna lie, didn't expect so many people to be surprised by this. I wonder if it's this way on purpose...

Yeah, I... maybe we're just good with words? I don't know.

Now, if you want to talk to me about phoenix downs...

@artemesia: I'll bite, what's up with phoenix downs?

#39 Posted by hawkinson76 (377 posts) -

I did not notice. But to be fair, I've never owned a PS3

#40 Posted by McGhee (6075 posts) -

Kind of loses its wow-factor when you realize how shitty the sixaxis actually is.

I think it's a reference to a great Bombcast moment where Jeff (and I, I'll admit it) found out that Phoenix Downs are actually tufts of feathers from a phoenix and not just some Japanese translation RPG item jargon nonsense.

Wow I can't believe I never noticed this. Thank you for this wonderful gift.

Holy... Consider my mind blown for today. Maybe not, but still good catch.

I can't believe it; I can't believe it took me all these years to actually realize this. Racecar used to be my go-to palindrome but there was an even more obvious one literally in front of my face half the time.
