For like 10m it’s confusing. If after a day of practice you’re still getting confused on where those buttons are, your typing skills must be absolute garbage on a keyboard.
With the 8 you’re getting all the buttons you need for your console. Heaven help you if you need them and you can’t use em (I love how six button sticks can’t even change their title/icon or scan leaderboards in SF4)
Seriously, the buttons being there are only confusing if someone handed you their 8 buttonlayout stick while you’re at a friends house and you’re like “Oh shit, I’m so confuzzled.” cuz you just got the thing and are not used to it.
A day with your own 8 button layout? You’re done. Seriously. This is like the people who thought the SNES controller was too complicated back when it came out cuz it had shoulder buttons. You’re a human being, you’re designed to adapt.
