PS4 DualShock 4 vs. Xbox One controller hands-on – Reader’s Feature

By Benjamin Abbott: "Talk all you like about processing chips and advanced graphics engines; if your controller isn’t up to snuff then the whole conversation is rendered moot" (PS4, Xbox One)

For me the controller that doesn't have batteries is the clear winner

Now that I have had the chance to use them both at eurogamer I can say that to me I feel the xbox one controller is better for driving games as the impulse triggers do feel good when you're driving (especially the brakes).

But I actually found myself preferring the PS4 controller when playing FPS, it just felt a bit more comfortable in my hands when playing.

But which ever console you get you're in for a treat because I cant really pick any actual faults with either of them.

Sounds good, but im not into fps or driving games, so...

It may be good for shooters but I'm going to miss using R1 to shoot and L1 to aim.

It will be an option for button mapping.

And it damn well better be, as L2/R2 really only make sense in the respect that they're shaped right.

The problem: they're not POSITIONED right. On EITHER controller.

I was born with the dualshock, I have lived by the dualshock and I will die by the dualshock

Both conrollers are cool but I think the Dual Shock 4 is better. + it doesn't use AA batteries

These articles always end up with healthy debates.

When you think about it....what the hell is a 2013 next gen controller doing using AA batteries? Couldn't they just have made it like the ps3/ps4 controller and have it inside the controller?

We will be going almost into the 2020's with next gen and people will still be using AA batteries for their Xbox One controller, that's laughable.

I believe in choosing whatever makes you more happy. I don't believe one is better than the other. I think they're both going to be great conyrollers. So in essence, I don't want to hear one is better than the other in fps, and as long as Microsoft fixed the D-pad, I don't want to hear one is better than the other in fighting. I think they both made great strides in making solid controllers.

EDIT: I can understand people's concerns with the battery pack, and I really did wish Microsoft did away with that, but I got a rechargeable battery pack and used that for my 360. Admiringly, prior to that it was annoying, but I addressed it and saved on costs of constantly buying batteries.

Anyway,..., happy gaming.

But why should the consumer have to keep addressing this by buying batteries and extra accessories. That is not staying in tune or fair to consumers.

XB1 controller impressions from Timurse (neogaf)
http://www.neogaf.com/forum...

- The controller is very, very, very unergonomical compared to X360. It's smaller, the feeling is kind of like you are using a DualShock3.

- The move distance of sticks is a little bit smaller, than the one in X360. I really thought about PS Vita sticks while playing.

- Bumpers are totally connected to triggers. There isn't any piece of plastic (like in DS4) in-between trigger and bumper (clearly seen on video I edited in) so in 30-40% maybe you would miss the trigger and hit the bumper.

- The vibration is a lot less than on X360.

- The D-Pad is deepened into controller and it's really awkward. As in X360, DS3, DS4 it's slightly above the surface of controller. So while you try to press it on XBO gamepad moving your left thumb down from left stick you hit nothing, then you have to spend a second to find d-pad and actually press it. Really strange.

In order for you to not think that I am biased - I was the biggest basher of DS3 ever and also a huge fun of X360 gamepad :(
