I know what a fact is and I know what an opinion is. The system is, well, it's not advertised, but if it was, it'd be aimed mostly towards teens and adults. If the average teen can't hold the system regularly and depress the buttons with the very center of your thumb without grazing the analog stick then it means the sticks are too fucking close. Touching the analog stick when you don't mean to effects gameplay, and if it's because it's built that way and nothing you can do about it, then it's a design flaw. When the analog stick is close enough to where you slightly touch it and it does infact effect gameplay, it means that it's too close. There's no opinion about that, the analog sticks are too close to the buttons. That is a fact.
If the sticks are too close and you feel it your obligation to hold the system different than you normally would, maybe bend your thumbs at the joins which still grazes the button, or come in and press the buttons from a near 90 degree angle from both sides, that's on you. Doesn't change the fact that holding the system normally and playing normally you'll touch the analog sticks on occassion which should happen.
Even people in this thread have stated that the same has happened, but either it doesn't bother them or they've learned to deal with it. Learn to deal with it, fine, doesn't mean it's still not an issue.
Still doesn't make it a fact, but like I said, use the word in any way you like.
