DualShock 4 Has A Deceptively Large Size, Side-By-Side Comparison

According to an image, the PS4 controller's size seems to be pretty big. (PS4, Tag Invalid, Xbox One)

Wow! I saw people holding the DS4 in videos and it looked quite small, so it seems the Xbox has the smaller controller this time, not Playstation. I wonder how this will play out among those who complained about the PS having a "tiny" controller?

It is my personal opinion that the DS4 has the nicer aesthetics as I firmly believe that the ONE's controller resembles a brick (this is MY opinion, I know some people won't agree so apologize if I offended you).

From this it seems that the DS4 is superior to the ONE's controller, no? If this is the case, then a superior controller is yet another area that plays in Sony's benefit for this upcoming generation. The DS4 also doesn't require a battery pack and is more fit for those with larger hands, however, I have to credit Microsoft for making the XBOX ONE's controller look more mature and less like a child's toy as the XBOX 360's controller seemed to be with its bright colours. Moreover, I have to credit them for removing that stupid mound that was on the underside of the controller in which the battery lay, that was ridiculous and uncomfortable.. It seems that Sony have learned from their mistakes made on the PS3 and improved significantly by individually addressing them. For example:

- The sometimes slow XMB during games - they've tackled this by stepping up the RAM

- The controller that received lots of hate (the DS3) - they've blown the new controller out of the park in term of upgrades.

As well as more upgrades. Sony really are stepping up their game for the new generation, let's hope they return to the height of glory seen during the PS2 days.

the large footprint on the Xbox One controller makes it look bigger.

what I like most about the DS4 is that it has subtle curves that make it fit the hand grip more comfortbly

Sony fans keep your ds 1/2/3/4 even 5. It ll allways be better, for you.now Xbox and Pc only players prefer by miles the Xbox controller. I had both, xb and ds3 Wich i sold With the PS3 cause after 1 hour playing my fingers hurt real bad.
Now letz see, from a ergonomic pov Xbox has the edge. But i keep my reservations.

"...Wich i sold With the PS3 cause after 1 hour playing..." I maybe taking this out of context but if it means what i think it means then I know you are lying.
How many people go out of thier way to buy a PS3 (or any game console) and a video game and plays it and sells it after and Hour? A person with common sense would at least beat the game first before selling it.
Crazyglues  +   395d ago
All of that won't matter, (the fact that it's big compared to an XB1 controller) All that will matter is how does it feel.. http://bit.ly/11Y2AE5

-And from the reviews I've been reading the new DS4 is very comfortable... can't wait to start gaming on my PS4

What they really should be comparing it to is the DS3 and when you do that it's really about the same size as the old controller - http://bit.ly/1211R64

So really nice job Sony...

@InTheLab - If you're an NFL addict and love fantasy football (like me and many of my friends that do a $1000+ championship pot every season), then XBone's "gimmicky" TV features with exclusive NFL license and doing instant fantasy highlights are as cool as it gets.

The enthusiast press pretty much sums it up this way regarding controllers:

"Everybody wins."

Giantbomb tends to side with PS4 on the controller, but both of them are great. I can't wait, the DualShock looks like it really went through an overhaul, even if the functionality's the same.

The X1s controller looks like a square box with winged tips at the bottom, it doesn't even look like a controller. It's got a lot of extra space for no reason at all. Visually, I think it's XYBA buttons are sexy and the glossy top with the X look good too.
On the DS4 the rubber grip handles make it look comfortable like a steering wheel cover. It looks durable, less like a plastic toy and more like something made to never slip from your hand.

Gaming wise, I've been with Sony forever and never understood why anyone would play with a controller that wasn't symmetrical. Some of you guys may like it but I just can't sand it.

So what if the controller is bigger? Actually, those with big hands won't complain anymore. :)
MoveTheGlow  +   395d ago
Also, I think this may be the end of the "Video games are toys for kids / Video Games are mostly played by Japanese people" preconceptions in Japan. There's a reason the Nintendo 3DS XL's controls are still cramped together on that big system - they design it for kids.

Sony's obviously looking west (bringing Cerny along to develop the architecture, for instance), and having a bigger controller suits the global audience far better than the "Wait, what if 6-year-olds think this is too small? Eh, who cares? *We* don't have gigantic hands, so whatever!" kind of design ignorance we'd seen in the past. It's something Xbox360 got right, and it's the reason I have that controller... for my PC.

On a side note, someone had better make good use of that touchpad. It's ugly. There needs to be a really good reason for that to exist.

You complain about X1 having the ability to keep track of fantasy football equivalent to what you can do on your phone? I can easily compare the sh!t you do on your phone can be done with a tablet or laptop, so what's your point? If inventors thought in a box like you obviously do, the iPHONE would never have been invented. Cellphones were made for wireless talking, but we can access music, web, video recordings, still pictures, texting, and games from them. WHY? What's the damn point? The point is INNOVATION. Everything at your fingertips. MS created a console that does more than games, so whether you like the features or not...ITS STILL INCLUDED. Grow up!
Heartnet  +   395d ago
Agreed... Dislking the X1 controller for some reason but the Ds4 looks way worse... it does look like a toy.. touchpad is coming out of the controller not nicely embedded, speakers below that... to much going on to look nice just a mess of thrown together features imho

I was never a fan of the DS controllers, analog stick placement is horrible for FPS games. I think the X360 is the best controller I've played. With that said I'm not a fan of the XB1 controller design or the PS4 DS4, but time will tell when I hold both for the first time.

I do wonder how the Japanese are going to respond to the DS4 since they complained about Xbox (original)controller size. But yet the Japanese love the Wii U tablet/controller which is the largest controller since the Atari Jaguar and N64 so it will probably be neutral.

Fez  +   395d ago
The DS4 in this pic looks absolutely hideous and deformed! Could just be the lens used but the Xbox controller looks a lot more stylish and sleek to me. In the marketing pic from the behind angle I like the DS4 but the front is not my cup of tea.

Just on looks, I would say the Xbox has nicer thumsticks, dpad, start/select buttons and is overall a nicer shape. The DS4 handles and share/options buttons are eyesores imo.

It all comes down to comfort really though, and I'll probably be more comfortable with the DS4 after so much use of DS1-3.
shivvy24  +   395d ago
my only complaint was that the DS3 was small and the triggers were slippery ! both fixed :)
G20WLY  +   395d ago
Would you really put 'form' before 'function' for something as important to gaming as a controller??

It has to be tactile, it has to feel right and be easy/intuitive to use. 'Looks' are way down the priority pecking order, and rightly so.

With that said, I like it - but I haven't seen or held one for long enough to know how right they've got it anymore than you have, so let's be patient and fair... ;)

Heartnet  +   395d ago
not taking into account personal experiece, Logically the X1 is more ergonomic in terms of shape and analog placement so that will be more comfortable naturally... and yeh the ds4 looks gimmicky and horrible... more like a 3rd party controller than an offical and that light thing on the back could make it awkward to hold, like with the battery pack on x360

i agree xbox fanboys really have no excuse or really anything to say about the ps4 or the ds4 because both are just superior to anything on the xbox one. there are some people that work at microsoft though that are on forums trolling and spreading bs though. thats how they opperate. they are scum bags. just dont be fooled by them.

hellvaguy  +   395d ago
Both have some great features aside from personel comfort preference with the stick layout. Xbone has wifi direct and tactile triggers. Ds4 I like that share button and larger size.

Other changes like improved d-pad and touchpad, don't add anything for me.

Zhipp  +   395d ago
I'm not a fan of Sony or M$, but the most comfortable controllers for me are the 360's and Gamecubes. I think the One's controller is aesthetically gorgeous, and the slight adjustments they've made to the size and shape sound almost as though they were tailored specifically for my hands. Honestly, I'm eagerly looking forward to the day I can use it with PC games.

The fact of the matter is, though, that controller preference is the very height of subjectivity. To pretend that anyone's opinion on the matter can be absolute is delusional.

Yes because you speak for the whole community. I myself use MotionJoy and connect my PlayStation 3 controller to my PC. I have no issues with it, and it's better than buying attachments or a whole new wired 360 controller just to play it on the PC. All you need is a USB cable or if you want a Bluetooth dongle and of course the (free) software.

I also don't understand how people get pain when they play on controllers, I only get pain when I play on portables for a long time. My hands get numb on those after an hour or so.

The offset analogs are pretty stupid if you think about what a controller is meant to do when playing games.

Well, the lens is taking the picture right on top of the PS4 controller. So it will look bigger than when the PS4 controller would be on the X1 position. Try searching teh googles for wide angle lens and even fisheye lenses. Like this: http://bizzara.deviantart.c... ...

ybadr  +   395d ago
In the image, DS4 buttons are near the edge, wich makes them easy to access, and if you swap the two controllers positions you will have the impression that Xbone controller looks bigger. The image is a little tricky.

And damn i hate the D-pad of the Xbone controllers, just a nightmare in combat games such as: the King of fighters or street fighters.

And it is not a reason to buy an arcade pad because splitting a D-pad like the DS4, makes it more accessible for combat games.

Read the description off the D-pad from microsoft, does it look like improved to you ?

Once the D-pas is not splitted to 4 distinct buttons, it just does not do it for fighting games. I'm not the only one to tell this,

Let me give a credit first to the D-pad improvement, I didn't try the controllers yet but It looks way better than the crappy d-pad on 360 controllers.

somehow this d-pad doesn't look like it will help in making insane combos in games like KOF, SF, Tekken..etc If you're a fighting games fan who likes to make bloody combos then you will likely suffer with XB1 controller.
DS4 d-pad looks good, might be better than the one on DS3. I hope it's improved or at least on par with DS3 d-pad.

The DS D-pad isn't 4 seperate buttons, though. It's one mold with the center underneath the face of the controller. When I first saw it I thought it'd be brilliant, but now that I've used it I don't much care for that system, it makes diagonals too difficult.

I much prefer Nintendo's D-pads, to be honest. The One's looks a bit like Nintendo's, but M$ isn't the most reliable company when it comes to designing good D-pads, so I'll wait till it's in my hands before i get my hopes up.

i think that picture makes the dS4 look bigger than it actually is.... look good tho i actually like that its bigger than the ds3 and that they made the triggers concave (not shown in the pic)

the one is relatively the same size as the 360 so thats good (continuity and what not) but i need to test out the Ones new dpad i hope its better than the 360 dpad cuz that one sucked big time ima need to put it through its paces on Killer Instinct and see its up to par.

No No your wrong....the Xone dpad is smaller than DS4. Does that mean Xbox owners has small hands?? I don't know that but....there is one advantage having small hands,when taking a piss your penis might look "deceptively" larger than it really is.

I don't care how they improve the Dualshock controller.. just don't EVER move the D-pad to where the left analog stick is right now. I know people like the xbox controller, but I prefer the DS3 / 4 controller because of the placement of the d-pad. I like being able to use the controller with fighting games, the DS3 and 4 is better for fighting games. A lot of people use sticks, but I prefer the D-pad. If you move the d-pad to where the left analog stick is, you make the d-pad unusable, and then it because just a menu select button.

I'll respectfully disagree, cause i don't ever play fighting games. So the position of the d-pad, being where I prefer the left-analog, serves me no benefit.
ybadr  +   395d ago
I'm just imagining the possibilities offered by the touch pad on the DS4! that's huge ! and it also have motion sensors like DS3. And i don't understand why the Xbox one controllers costs 60$ when they lack those features ....

Photo I think is a little misleading.

I love the new look, but I have seen other photos which clearly show the ds4 is not bigger or wider than the Xbox stick.

I cannot wait too get my paws on my DualShock 4

Here's the Xbox One with the Xbox 360 controller

But the funny thing is, the Xbox One controller looks quite a lot like like the Xbox One controller.

Thanks! Well in that case either this image (in the article) is fake, or the new Xbox controller is tiny! :O

I hope it's the former, as nobody wants a smaller controller compared to last gen.

Thx very nice to see that pic, DS4 looks perfect then.

Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez!!!

Can't you guys find something better to argue about??.

The xbox controller has been universally applauded. It's a great piece of kit.

If Sony can fix the problems with the ds3, then more power to them. The controller issue and the lacklustre on-line functionality drove me to xbox this gen. Lets hope the playing field is more equal this gen...then I can have double the fun ;0)
Angeljuice  +   395d ago
If it were *universally applauded* there wouldn't be this debate. The Xbox d-pad however was universally maligned even by Xbox lovers, so it's good to see that both have improved. Still comes down to subjective preference though.
Thomper  +   395d ago
Of course it is subjective. I agree.

The above was just my personal view. I have big hands and the DS3 didn't cut it for me. If the DS4 is bigger, then ...awesome!

You can go out and buy a copy of the 360 controller for the PS3, The Wii U controller is a copy of the 360 controller.

Everyone wants to copy the best.
Petro  +   395d ago
@omi25p You don't even want to know how many copies there are of the PlayStation controller.
a_squirrel  +   395d ago
It's like they mashed a Xbox controller with the Xbox 360 controller; not that it's necessarily bad. I loved the feel of the original Xbox controller, but even so, it seems to me like it's just moving backwards.
Thomper  +   395d ago
Lol... 17 disagrees for my preference... Wow!

Nah....i Got huge hands,hopefully a perfect fit!
HexxedAvenger  +   395d ago
I always been a fan of the Xbox controller since the Xbox controller s. Still am. But I can't deny that the ds3/4 have the best dpad ever! Lol
Both controllers look awesome this gen. Can't wait to get my hands on them hehehehe

The xbox controller looks so cheaply made. The DS4 looks really robust and firm. You can really tell a lot more consideration and thought went into the DS4.
DCplaymaker  +   395d ago
lol look at the condom bottom of DS4. Dude at least admit the analog positions of the Xbone are way better. They were better on 360 also.

Xbone controller looks legit. http://www.wired.com/gadget...

Oh first world problems, so funny, everyone bitching over what controller "looks" nicer.
