check out the controls that will be used for gta iv in this video
R2 to accelerate. why not the x button.
i think they want you to use the trigger
anyway you probably can change it and... are this video real? Where did guy found that? But anyway it'll probably be something like that.
This is why 360 is best as it has triggers
That is why ps3 is best because it has functional triggers. I can't even count how many times i have tried using dpad for weapon select and ended up pushing up when i meant to push left. No matter what anyone says the controllers will always be a preference. Personally i prefer 360 controller for driving games because of the better triggers unfortunately though this isn't a driving game Anyways X the fanboyish nonsense. Both control schemes are pretty good if you ask me. I personally prefer R2 for accelerate than X because it is more context sensitive.
Nice try. But nope.
you just make me ROFLMFAO! by owning yourself there nice job and btw keep up the good work

Controls of a game making news. Dang. I know GTA is big, but the controls making news?!
I can't read any of that.
I saw a picture of the controls at... this one site. It They had pictures of the map, the subway, and the controls (PS3). But the pictures were from the little book that comes with the game and the map pics were from the big poster that comes with the game too.
OH! And they also had a video of the intro. PM if you want the site.
This was posted months ago and it was easier to see the controls. This is just some random guy who used the pictures and made a useless 1min video.
lame! cmon who cares what the buttons are going to do....
R2 to shoot on PS3? :|
LOL, this is another example of how the extremely outdated DualSuck design is inferior to the ever-evolving Xbox controller. 360. Controller made perfection.
controls(button layout, not how they are implemented into a game) are just preference...not a defining mechanism of how good a game is. Control scheme on the other hand, can kill any good game but a lot of people are used to the ps3 controller, a lot of people are used to the Xbox 360 controller, but I don't think that either is better than the other, its all preference A lot of games allow you to change the controls to your preference if you don't like the way the initial layout...it's just a fanboy attack when someone says how one controller is superior over another one.
did u call me kid? And regardless of button config preference, the controller layout is still the same old thing. you can't even grip the DualSuck, that's how bad it is. 360 fits in the palm of your hand. It's perfect. not to mention REAL triggers and better analogue stick placement. Sony needs to move on. That boomerang would have been better.
The 360 is ever-evolving because they can't seem to get it right. There's a reason ducks have stopped evolving and the platypus is still trying to figure himself out. Also it's a fat Platypus that doesn't fit in the hands of girls because they are icky and we don't want them playing video games with us.
i would rather R1 to shoot on ps3 .. tis not an xbox pad ffs lol, i hope you can re-configure the controls/ that aside how is the news ? L O L
Rockstar changed our beautiful controls to match the ugly POS XBOX's! GTA was made for the PS controller, KEEP IT THAT WAY!!! R2 to shoot and drive? Were they drunk? Even FPS games on PS3 don't use R2 to shoot!
The xbox controller is better m8. Mainly due to triggers, analog placement and the stiff analog sticks.
Nick, Although I know its all a matter of preference, the dualshock sticks are actually tighter than the 360 controller. Th 360's may be "stiffer" but they have a greater dead zone. I, personally, just love the precision of the dualshock.
The Dualshock analog sticks actually feel more precise than the 360s. They're a little looser and smoother, thus easier to control shooters with. This is coming from a guy who has played tons of Xbox and 360 shooters in the past, and prefers using triggers (R2) as the shoot button.
The R2 trigger.... No, I miss circle to shoot for GTA games. For any game that's similar to GTA, I always press the circle button to shoot. I love the GTA controls, oddly enough... San Andreas' controls atleast. Speaking of which I feel like playing that all the sudden...
I sure hope they have a "classic GTA" configuration.
Hope the controls are customizable.
Good for xbox, crap for PS. Shows what they deved on.
As if development issues affect control schemes to such an extent. :|
Looks to me like they based it on TRIGGERS which PS3 lacks lolownt
like the guy below you said about triggers that's what I meant. They start on the 360 and than they just transfer it all over. seems kinda half assed to change it in the 4th game on the PS
Yet more proof 360 was the lead plat. Sucks to only own a PS3 at this point.
Running around talking crap when you never even owned or used a DS3 or six axis controller. I use the R2 and L2 on six axis controller with COD4 on PS3 and I have no problems at all. I found it easier using R2 and L2 then using R1 and L1. Say what you want but I can bet the majority of you running your mouth have never used the controller's R2 and L2 for FPS. Just running with what he/she said. "like the guy below you said about triggers that's what I meant. They start on the 360 and than they just transfer it all over. seems kinda half assed to change it in the 4th game on the PS" You really think that? That Rockstar just transfered it over? GTA started on the Playstation. They already stated the controls on the game are great. "Yet more proof 360 was the lead plat. Sucks to only own a PS3 at this point." Your basing GTA the lead plat on 360 based off of controls? hahaha. Nice one genius. You guys are something else. On top of that you guys saying this is bad for PS3, you fail to realize 90% of games out do allow you to change the controls. Worse argument you could put up while trying to downplay the PS3 version.
Riot don't jump to assumptions. I have used the six axis don't own a dualshock yet. The xbox 360 controller is hands down better in ever game category except maybe fighting games. Pressing the l2 or r2 for too long is annoying finger tends to slip off.
DO I HAVE TO REMIND EVERYONE THAT THE REASON GTA4 WAS DELAYED WAS CAUSE OF THE PS3!!!go ahead and disagree you no its the truth THIS SITE IS SO BIASED HERES NEWS FOR YOU GET OFF SONYS NUTS
I don't get it, why does everyone say that this control scheme is good for the XB360 controller, but bad for the Dualshock 3? The two controllers are practically mirror images of each other in terms of button layout! Personally, I feel the R2 and L2 triggers are definitely the best for accelerating/breaking and shooting. They're called "triggers" for a reason!
360 is even better for controlling XD
You're so sure of that, especially when this was a PS franchise and it PLAYED better on the Sony Playstation? Maybe you should change that icon to 360 FAIL.
right and the fishheads know it. Look at all those disgrees and the few feeble attempts at trying for a comeback.
Dualshock has got to be the most uncomfortable and stupidly layed out controller I've ever had the displeasure to hold in my hands.
Uncomfortable? PS has always had one (if not the) best controllers. Unlike that brick you use to control that plastic grill you call a console.
old news, this came up months ago.
guys i have the ps3 and the 360 i must there is no way a controller designed for the ps1 in 225 ssothrs this gen . for me after using both the 360 controller is 8 notches better than the ps3 controller's but that was already know google it and ull see a diagram showing u the unnatural position the ps3 controller is on your hand .p.s can some 1 plz post the diagram plz ?
Always was and is Best there ever is , Xbox did Copy DS2 after xbox's big A$$ kill baby seal Club Failed.
Sorry i'll take the DS3 any day. have you ever played a fighter with that 360 controller? crap. nothing new about M$ copying other peoples designs.
What is the song??
i see what they had to change the controls..they did it to add in the cover system..and the ps3 does not lack triggers...really the 360 are to far apart, while the ps3 has them space together making the L2/R2 triggers longer, i like it, maybe because i been playing with it since 2001, anywho the song is from the latest trailer on GTA4
I've been asking and asking this question if you can configre you controls since this pic was first shown. R2/L2 to accelerate and brake is a ripoff from crappy Xbox racers. I didn't like it on them and I certainly dont like it GTA. This could seriously be a gamebreaker for me. I know it sounds like nothing to some of you but theres nothing worst than having a function programed in your head and then having to search for a new button and think about it everytime instead of just knowing it. The cross/Square or equivalent has served us well probably for 20 years. Why bloody change it just because XBOX has springy triggers? All the other GTA's controlled fine and I have 5 of them on PS2. You better be listening R*.
Well I own both the PS3 and 360 and I still like the 360 controller more tbh. The triggers on the sixaxis are too short, very a bit shoody and its way to light. On the otherhand the 360's controller is nice, good weight to it but the D-Pad does suck alot.
no SIXAXIS? who cares , nobody does (i know i don't :P)
360 is even bad for controlling XD
360 > PS3 pad. PS has a poor pad design its horrid
"360 < PS3 pad.
brothersimon's face has a poor design, its horrid"
lol at juice. "face is horrid".
hahaha he got you there brother g@ymon
I wish they had kept the tradition controls but its all good. What matters is that this game will be one of the GTA games out there.
I don't agree with brothersimon but, I do prefer the 360 controller. It's a better fit for my hands.. Why is there a button for calling a taxi? =/
People actually fight about the controls. Un-phucking-believable. -_-
the GTA franchise has always been on the ps brand so HOW THE HECK can u say its better wid the 360 controller!..have u ever played a GTA game! u make it sound like you've already played GTA4 with both controllers and have based your desision on ur experience
i wonder how tthe HECK u retarded BILLY THE GAYboy PIPER followers played GTA Sanandreas on that door sized XBOX CONTROLLER! LOL!
You've been on the site for 12hours and you are already acting like a PS3 fanboy douchebag. You are going to fit in just nicely around here.
There was two controllers for the xBox1. The big one was really comfortable for people with big hands. And, for the people with small hands they had a smaller version. Close to the same size as the PS controller.
360s controller was desined for 3D games wow
NO I HARDLY PLAY my PS3 but i researched on both consoles before i got the PS3, my originale joice was an XBOX360 but i realised how old and out dated the technology was
Then why act like a di¢k?? Just say your point and move on..
OH and GIANT CRAB, U! POG and brothersimon all seem to be in 1 club...'ummm wats the name again' OH! YEAH!! its BILLY THE GAYboy steel humanities money CLUB! LOL....Fllipin MICROFAG!!
damn if only the person the conceive u had a heart attack then we would have th pleasure of not knowing u and u wont exist damn what a shame.
Why did they make the "shoot" button change when your in a car? That could be annoying.
