Launch a game from the hard drive. The title screen glows in front of you, beckoning. Time to press the start button, like you've done thousands of times before. Not anymore, though. Start's gone, shown the door by both the PS4 and Xbox One.
To be honest, I've always used X instead of start
X was only a substitute for certain things. I feel very out of place without a Start button myself.
Im constantly reaching for a start button. Especially to pause or whatever. And options? Seriously the only reason I see it named that is because when you highlight a menu item and push options it actually gives you options. Better than no name buttons I guess but I will miss start. Maybe I can tell my future offspring about the glory days when we had a start button and watch their mind blow.
@MatrixxGT But options do come up when you press the Options button during a game (Resume, Restart, Settings, Main Menu, etc). And then your future offspring will ask you why you pressed a "START" button to PAUSE... lol ___ Most title screens today say "Press Any Button" and the ones that do say "Press Start" allow you to just press any button anyway. Sometimes I just press the PS button. It's easier.
are we REALLY willing to give up the only button we known since NES days?? when you press that button your game comes to life im not so easily giving up on it. with out it i would not know how to START the game x is not reliable. since NES days our minds has been programmed with that button you will reach for it automaticlly. what will replace it?? PAUSE?? haaaaa
You used x to pause your games.
Good-bye start. :( Hello PS4! http://i.imgur.com/eZkNKze....

Lol some fat guy got banned earlier for getting naked on twitch xD Edit:Where do you find these things??xD
I don't know what that girl got, but I'm staying far away from her.
Make it Rain let us throw out Dollar bills.
ZBlacktt - Is it Miley C?
There have been many times so far where I want to pause Resogun and I'm like "WHERE'S THE DAMN START BUTTON!"
lol yes!! in Battlefield 4 I always bring up the Battle log feature by accidentally pressing the touch pad looking for a Start button
Or you could just press the PS button. It's a little easier and it basically pauses the game too. Unless you're actually trying to bring up options like Restart, Settings, Main Menu, then pressing the Options button makes more sense than pressing "START" to PAUSE.
Nintendo did away with start on the wii. Though arguably the +\- serve as start and select.
I was looking for the start button while playing Ac4, ended up using the PS home button and from now on i use that
The funny things is I will probably still call it a start button lol it's just in my DNA now.
I still miss it man, everytime I want to pause a game I literally stare at my controller hoping to find that START button. Countless times Ive pressed the touchpad trying to reach for the Start Button lol. The Options button needs to stick out more, not very accessible. I can see why the Share button is indented so you dont accidentally press it in the middle of the action, but the Options button IS the Start button and needs to be popping out for easier presses. The one thing I dislike about an otherwise perfect controller
All of you really pressed all these other buttons by accident?
Meanwhile on the Wii U controller... http://i.imgur.com/g16BiES....
Doesn't seem like a big deal at all.
I started pressing Share just to make the game pause lol Sometimes the center pad and options doesn't pause a game.
yeah not a big fan of the share button.. I really don't care what other people's videos look like and I don't care to waste people's time with mine. Kinda like twitter….don't give a flying fark what you're doing! I miss the start button already….
Start and Select are iconic. No reason to remove it imo.
I love Share and Option buttons :)
I have clicked my track pad many times while reacing for the start button. To think soon it'll be just a memory
I am still getting used to hitting the touchpad when I go for the Options button. Not sure when I will get fine with it.
