Take a look at Dualshock 4 controller layout of Battlefield 4.
I just wanna see some direct feed gameplay.
u are NOT alone
I'm glad they moved the aim/fire to L2/R2 triggers. That was my major complaint with the DS3 on (most) ps3 games. The L1/R1 feel cheap and plasticy, while the triggers have a nice weighted response.. and once I attatched a pair of L2/R2 trigger extensions for my DS3, any ps3 games that utilized L2 and R2 for aim/shoot mechanics just felt sooo right..
@ FunkMacNasty ... Man I tried giving you 500 likes for that comment. The L1/R1 for aiming and shooting felt awkward of which turned me away from man PS3 games. The sad part is that they never gave you the option to manually adjust it to your fittings. I wonder why!
i was hoping for it being customizable.
Hoping against hope. For the life of me, I cannot understand why developers don't just give us the options. It's not like anyone is getting an advantage over someone else.
I hopr they have that veteran option that was available on the beta. That was very close to the BF3 controller layout.
In this day and age I don't understand why every game doesn't have fully customizable controls. I can't think of one good reason why they don't.
Putting that Touchpad to use i see lets hope it works well.
eh, I was hoping for something more 'in-game.' - weapons swap - grenade toss
If not mistaken, Touchpad in this game will be replacing the missing select button. Anyway, I still prefer R1 to shoot.
You should probably touch the new DS4 triggers before picking preferences... unless you already have ofc.
Yea, pretty much all PS3 owners will prefer L1 R1 on PS4.
I dont care what the triggers are like, I still like R1/L1. On my Trigger finger.
The whole point of the trigger buttons is that you usr them as triggers. I know DS3 was crap in this area but you ps3 gamers need to ppay it first before moaning. This is one main reason why 360 controller was best this gen and soon you'll get that too with ds4.
It's actually one of the reasons why I hated the 360 controllers. Hated using the triggers to shoot. R1 feels much more responsive and quicker.
On the PS3 the select button is used to bring up battlelog.
nope i want L1 and R1 to be aim and shoot that is that only thing i dont like about this layout but im sure there will be other layouts. Ill just have to wait.
The legacy controller layout should have you covered.
What is the legacy layout ? . I feel strongly about the new layout on the beta . So much so I really think I will not be buying Battlefield 4 . Why Dice have changed them so much is beyond me .
It's a layout that's being added that caters to people that prefer the layout of BF3, which means it should include the switching of the shoulder buttons.
Yea it probably will i read of it in the bf4 hopefully there is something similar. On the ps4 version.
I would assign AIM to to L1 and GRENADE to L2. I think SHOOT with R2 will feel right with the new triggers, but aiming would still be better with L1. Obviously I still need to try the controller and touch it for the first time, so that is just speculative.
I want it to be Nov 15. Right now.
Ive got BF4 on pre-order for $48 from newegg.com free shipping..they had a promo a few weeks ago .. not to bad it would be around $65 else where Here in NY state.
Release day shipping?
If im not allowed to switch it to L1 and R1 i will cancel my pre order
Me too I don't like new controls forced on me, with no option to change them.
i loled... AT YOU!
haha go back to COD then noob !! learn to adapt or GTFO
Or maybe DICE could offer customizable controls, for the people who only play Battlefield and don't want to have to pull their thumbs away from the sticks to perform any of the game's essential combat actions, as was possible in BF3. Right now we are required to map either crouch or melee to the circle button, neither of which are actions I want to have to relinquish stick control to perform.
Even if i were to adapt to the game i will still smash on you noobs hahhaa dont make me laugh kids
Dice already said they are adding the old PS3 control scheme to the game.
What about vehicle controls? I struggled flying the chopper in the beta...hope they let you change it to bf3 controls.
Hoping for motion controls on vehicles, since the DS4 has a gyroscope.
ps3 does too.."sixaxis"
That's just sixaxis though. Gyroscope is what ypur phone has. Much more precise.
L1 - Aim R1 - Shoot Thats how i'm rollin... Everything else looks fine as is...
I see so many PlayStation gamers for several games say NOPE I want L1 and R1, but I wonder if that's because you guys think it's better or if it's just because that's what you're used to. I've had the trigger attachments on my controller for years now, and it just feels so much better than using L1 and R1. With all the praise the Dualshock 4 has been getting, I can only imagine how good it will feel naturally. But really, none of this would even be relevant if developers just let us manually setup our layouts. It's almost 2014 and I can probably count on my hand how many games have done this in the last 10 years.
I prefer the quicker response of L1/L2, the triggers on 360 and PS3 have way too much travel in them for my taste, but I also started playing FPS on PC where the click of a mouse button fired the weapon. I do really wish DICE would just offer a custom option though, especially since the beta's "veteran" scheme, which claims to offer controls for players of previous games in the series, is still different from what the controls used to be on a few fundamental levels.
I switched everything to "Veteran" controls, and the layout felt like BFBC2 layout afte that, and that game I had a blast in :) People with control scheme problems, usually end up as "free-kills" online, I'd recommend playing the story mode on Hard to get use to the controls(thats what I usually do)
They had better have a a layout for L1/R1, I have tried the DS4 and although the triggers are nice, you can't beat the responsiveness of the L1/R1 buttons.
wait a sec... spotting is done with L1 now? wow that's gonna feel weird
Anyone else think the Options button action should be the other way round. Holding should be pause and Scoreboard should be tap.
terrible layout, it looks the same as the ps3. let us customise our own? please? :D this game does not look as good to me as i hoped it would, maybe bf5 will be better or bad company which they said they would make eventualy.
I think what is far more interesting is the kinect use of xb1 on this game, its clearly not voice only controls, its sensing something of your movement, wonder what exactly it is? Head tracking or motion gestures perhaps?
