We, PS3 owners and the members of Alt-Controls.com & AbleGamers.com, request
that customizable controller settings should be added to the PS3 firmware.

Right now controller layout options are rather limited in most of the
games available for PS3. Left-handed players, accustomed using the
left analog stick to aim and also disabled gamers with specific needs
in the controller setup would benefit from such a feature. Even
"regular players" could take advantage by remapping the buttons to
their taste. Not to forget about the players who are used to the
legacy control layout.

Technically this should be feasible. For example, PSP received this
feature in the 3.95 firmware for the PSone games: "While playing PSone
games on your PSP, you can now customize how the buttons are assigned
by going to [Controller Settings] > [Assign Buttons] and select
[Custom]."
