I have used both, the ds4 is much better than the ds3, but the cheese thumbsticks hurt it. its a 8/10, the thumbsticks take away 1 point, and the thumbstick placement takes a point away. Xbox is a 10/10. I used it 5 times, and I just purchased one that is sitting on my fireplace. I charged it last night from the 360, its sleek, it feels unreal in your hands, the rumble effect in triggers is absolutely a home run. NBA2K14 when you dribble the ball in the right or left hand the triggers respond with a rumble. Its extremely well done. Also The thumbsticks have a grip texture around it and its very tactile to the touch, and guard against whats happening to the DS4 thumbsticks where it gets all scratched up to shit and looks like you put it in a blender, I played Forza and again this feature shined Day 1 edition, thank god I didn't cancel.

Xbox 360 Controller 4/10

Xbox one controller 3.5/10

Of course it does. It seems now that the PS4 is in the wild and Sony don't have the control to spin their web of lies, people are realising just how garbage the system is.

Sub-standard controller once again.

Broken PSN.

Flop after flop after flop.

Rehashed IP announcements (Uncharted).

The effects of Sony having no money are in full force.

even if the Xbone's controller were better, which is not, the console itself will not sell 1 million in 24 hours. The Sony Domination Continuation can't be stopped.

#10 Posted by XBOunity (2981 posts) -

@Gue1: gue congrats, that doesn't mean that I will having a better experience on nov 22nd. I think its pretty clear Sony rushed their launch, and did jump ahead, but xbox one is going to prove to be the more durable better buy console. Nov 22nd you will see what I mean. Listen to the talk around after that. Microsoft was prepared, every single day they were in the news, they were put the pressure on from cows like yourself jumping on them. I believe it made them stronger and more aware. Right now Xbox One offering are better than ps4's. Enjoy Knack

It is better though. PS4 is better at everything else but you cannot deny that the bone controller is better.

#12 Posted by DilfersDimes (59 posts) -

lol no. XB1 controller still uses AA batteries and isnt much different from its predeccesor. Meanwhile the DS4 improved 10 fold over the DS3.

#13 Posted by XBOunity (2981 posts) -

@dilfersdimes:

ok even if you bring that up. that's 9/10. xbox controller is better.

But where does that put you being 10 fold improved over terrible

#15 Posted by YD_11 (1832 posts) -

I'll probably always think the Xbox controllers are better as long as the sony leaves the thumb sticks parallel.

To be fair, that's because the DS3 had a LOT more room for improvement...

The Xbox 360 controller was already considered arguably the best primary game controller in history.

The DS4 is a monstrous improvement over the DS3, but it's largely due to the fact that Sony explicitly patterned many changes after the Xbox controller. Sony has directly stated this. They even considered the off-set analog stick layout of the Xbox controller but decided against it ultimately because the stick placement on the DS is now traditional/iconic of the PS brand.

Both new consoles have great controllers.

#17 Posted by Eddie-Vedder (7798 posts) -

According to professional gaming critics and gamers at large the DS4 is vastly superior to the Xbone pad which is pretty much more of the same.

I haven't tried the Xbox One controller but I prefer the DS4 over the 360 controller.

Ok you enjoy mad catz design hahaha. Horrible face button compare to DS, bumper button that belong on 10$ controller, trigger that were great in 360 controller but now crap so MS can force rumble, AA battery, pay extra for plug play. How long before MS adding touch pad to controller as well hahahah

I would wrap those thumbsticks with saren wrap I guess so it doesn't look like a scatched up mess. good luck

#22 Posted by Chozofication (2876 posts) -

I don't think either *layout* is particularly better than the other and both controllers clearly are massive improvements over the last one's.

But, the 360 controller was junk and the DS3 was tried and true aside from the nasty triggers. The Xbone pad does look fantastic though, aside from the bumpers which I hate, at least they're bigger though. I like how the triggers are wider and thicker, as they should be.

Interestingly, I hear that the sticks on the Xbone pad have been loosened while the DS4 sticks are more tight, I guess they tried to make them more like the other in that regard.

#23 Edited by starwolf474 (670 posts) -

I haven't tried the Xbox One controller yet, but I have the PS4, PS3, and Xbox 360 controllers.

The PS4 controller is definitely a huge improvement over the PS3 controller, which in my opinion was the worst controller that I have ever used. The controller is finally big enough for a person with adult sized hands to hold comfortably. The analog sticks, d-pad, and triggers also feel much better and it does not feel like a cheap toy like previous PlayStation controllers did.

Compared to the Xbox 360 controller, however, it still falls short because of the position of the left analog stick which is not an ideal position for it when playing games where you use the analog stick to move, which is the majority of modern games. I was very disappointed to see that it is also still possible for my thumbs to run into each other as well, which was one of the most frustrating things about all PlayStation controllers.

The PS4 controller is definitely replacing my PS3 controller on my PS3 and I think that it will be the best controller for 2D games that use the D-pad to move, but for 3D games, the Xbox 360 controller is still king and since not much seems to have changed on the Xbox One controller, so I expect it to be just as good as the 360 controller.

#24 Edited by pc-ps360 (3458 posts) -

it all about preference i prefer the xbox analog locations than the ps analogs but u can get use to it. when i got a wiiu using the placement of analogs was very annoying since they are aligned but i got used to them, same with ps u can get used to them and i did with the ds3. tho i still prefer the xbox analogs.

Im surprised how many broken ps4's there are. I always thought sony makes high quality products but I guess times are tough and they went the cheap route.

You're wrong. Because you're a shitty fanboy on system wars who's probably making shit up.

#28 Edited by Suppaman100 (3916 posts) -

DS 4 looks to be the best controller.

#29 Posted by EnviousEyezOnMe (260 posts) -

I played PS4 at a friend of mines bar/lounge last night and while the DS4 is waaaay better than the DS3, I just couldn't play COD properly. I'm so used to FPS on an Xbox controller. I felt more comfortable playing NFS since you only really need to use the left stick. I'm sure with more time, I could adjust though. I just picked up an extra X1 controller from GS and this is the first time I've gotten my hands on it. I've stayed away from kiosks because I want to be surprised by everything on launch day. Anyways, the X1 controller is lighter and a tad smaller, feels better in hand to me than the X360 and I loved that controller. Oh and the d-pad feels much better but the only way to test if it really is better will be when I play Killer Instinct. Can't wait!!

#30 Posted by Shielder7 (5152 posts) -

Trying to use the 360s controller for anything other than shooters is like pulling teeth and the X1's controller doesn't seem much different all the way down to the use of AA batteries.

Forgetting to mention still vastly inferior xbone dpad. Please do not cry.

@Eddie-Vedder:

Source? I prefer the Xbox Controller to the Playstation controller. I hated the DS3, so I'm not sure if I'll like the DS4. DS3 just felt too small for me. I also dislike the placement of the analog sticks of the DS4.

What I've been hearing from the gaming media is that the Xbox One controller is better than the PS4s. With the rumbling triggers and very improved d-pad.

What's funny is that Sony has actually taken lots of cues from the Xbox 360 controller, the DS4 is now curved at the back, with triggers. http://www.vg247.com/2013/10/22/ps4-sony-admits-early-dualshock-4-designs-were-close-to-xbox-360-controller/

Angry joe made a comparison of the PS4 and Xbox controller and said that the DS4 felt very similar to the Xbox 360 controller.

They also considered putting the sticks in a similar form as the Xbox 360's, as consumers liked the Xbox 360's controller better for shooters. http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/10/22/original-ps4-controller-analog-stick-layout-similar-to-xbox-360

@XBOunity

I am glad you have formulated your own opinion on the controllers, sir, and I wish you the very best on your future endeavors in gaming, on your chosen platform with controller :) .

I myself have yet to try out either controller, but believe I will be very much happy with either controller :)

#38 Posted by EducatingU_PCMR (722 posts) -

The DS4 is an improvement but it looks cheap as hell.

And there are already reports of the thumbsticks wearing off and the battery being crap.

The XO controller looks like a much much more polished product, and it's what I'll get for my PC. On top of that it will have proper support for Windows, unlike the DS4 which works only with basic functions, and I doubt Sony would even bother to develop the adequate functionality for PC. Same crap as the DS3, you'll have to use 3rd party buggy programs to make it work as intended.

I'd also take the impulse triggers instead of the gimmicky trackpad any day. Let's all be honest here, that thing will never be fun to use, and no dev will find a creative way to make it work.

#39 Posted by Zoso813 (310 posts) -

The DS4 is an amazing improvement. I like it just as much as the 360/One controller. You can't really go wrong either way.

#40 Posted by Heil68 (44530 posts) -

So far I'm loving the DS4. It feels great and performs just as good.

#41 Posted by lonewolf604 (8522 posts) -

Yeah, the only thing I can say negative about the DS4 is that the material on the thumbsticks feels really cheap. If it were better I'd say it was equal to the One controller, but so far the One controller feels more premium.

#46 Posted by marcl18123 (2022 posts) -

Haven't used the xbox one controller, but I'm not feeling the bummers from pics, but i do like the textured look of the sticks. Stick placement is just a personal preference. symmetrical sticks work fine on the ds4 and asymmetrical sticks work fine for me using my 360 controller PC. Both controllers are improvements over their predecessors.

#47 Posted by airshocker (29670 posts) -

The XB1 controller, with the exception of the battery being on the inside and the D-pad, is a pretty big step backwards. The bumpers suck. If you have long fingers you tend to press down on the innermost edges and that doesn't work because the bumpers are solid pieces of plastic. The sticks are WAY too loose. Not as firm as the X360's sticks. It also feels like it's a little bit smaller, not as wide as the X360 controller.

DS4 beats it hands down.

#48 Posted by sukraj (22790 posts) -

I know I'm going to fall in love with the xbox one controller I like the way it looks and those impulse triggers are awesome I'm not saying the DS4 isn't a good controller its just not my kind of controller and the xbox one controller is even better than the 360 controller.
