I saw this brought up after a Kotaku article a few months ago, and I meant to ask then but forgot. The kid used a PS3 controller, but had to switch to another one halfway through, and he lost because of it.
Everyone was saying he should have known better and it’s common knowledge… but I have no idea this was the case. I use a PS3 controller for all my gaming online, and while I think the controller sometimes decides to use different buttons then I pressed(it trys to grab or bursts when I only pressed 1 button) I myself would be annoyed if I had to change if I went to a tourny(which I never would except for Soul Caliber.)
So, why is it not allowed?
