Some details and images have been listed for the upcoming Gator Claw PS4 Wired Controller.
Analog layout is good but everything else about this controller looks like crap. Needs the playstation buttons
The reason why Microsoft went with this layout is because Sony owns the rights for the Analog layout on the DS controller, so everyone else is picking a different design to avoid lawsuit. Microsoft decided to switch places with the D-pad and the left analog stick. Nintendo decided to place both analog sticks at the top. DS1 was the first controller with 2 analog sticks. It is basically the father of modern controllers. 8 command buttons, 2 analog sticks, 4 directional buttons and every controller since have had the same amount of buttons except different layouts due for copy-rights. Both Nintendo pro controller and the Ds-controllers still got symmetrical analog-sticks. Microsoft do not.
I prefer mine where my thumbs naturally rest, and symmetrical, just like my hands.
Well it feels better....
No it needs to be a PS4 controller....this is some stranger danger sht right here.....stay away!!!
@subtenko Danger zone much......
PS4 might be worth it with this controller. Always hated the dual shock. The controller was clunky and never fit perfectly in my hands as the 360 controller or XB1 did. Microsoft certainly evolved their controller into one of best as award after award has shown. The Elite will be the one to beat.
* The REASON that Analogs work better like the XB1 controller is because your doing different movements with your Left & Right thumbs. * The the off-center analogs, it's easier to aim a gun in FPS with the right analog where it's places on the XB1/360 controller. Your doing different movement to aim than you are while moving your character around. Both work well, but it's more of a comfort thing for certain people. Sony fans have had years to adapt and get used to it.
A third party controller that actually has the touch pad, and light bar. It's not just the analog sticks that resemble the Xbox One pad. The entire thing looks more like the Xbox One controller, aside from the touch pad and light bar. Interesting.
I agree it's interesting, but I'm not going to get my hopes up. So many of these third party controllers look alright on paper but feel like crap when you get your hands on them. The analogue sticks in particular are often especially bad with elusively high deadzones that really kill any potential for high accuracy.
I love the Xbox one controller. Even bought a Cronusmax just to hook it up to my PS4... I might be the only one here, but the quality of the buttons and and the remote itself just feels higher than the PS4 remotes' IMO.
lmao... xbox clone joystick should be the name of this thing
This thing would sell by the truck loads if it's wireless and doesn't have those idiotic face buttons.
I mean whats up with that? If it were a controller that was for PS4 AND PC then yeah, maybe, but it clearly says its for PS4. Wheres the iconic Playstation buttons?
People love that xbox controller
Im sure some do, but Im also sure some dont.
And I can't for the life of me figure out why.
If you're not used to the PS controller, the Xbox one is a bit more comfortable, the placement of the sticks feels better for shooters as well.
I think the DS4 was an enormous improvement vs ds3. If I had to choose between ds3 and Xbox controller - Xbox all the way. DS4 is a different animal though. It's an improvement in every way and feels so natural. I think I'll be sticking with my stock DS4. An improvement even over the xbox's great setup.
I think that perception has changed a lot with this generation. The DS4 is really nice, while the XBOX ONE controller while still nice, isn't quite as egonomically pleasant for some, as the 360 controller. Having four of both, I prefer the PS4 controller . Everything is perfect on both controllers but the bumpers feel awkward to press on XBOX ONE for me.
I learnt within 2 minutes that the bumpers are designed to be pressed by rolling your finger towards it, without the need to take your finger off the trigger. Try it out... Your welcome.
360 controller > DS3. DS4 > 360 controller. I having used the xbox one controller yet so I really can't make an apt comparison. All I know is that I hated the PS3 DS3 controller as it would cramp my large hands.
It's only coming out in New Zealand for now. Who knows if it will hit anywhere else.
Looks comfortable. But I don't like the d-pad. And it's wired. And what's up with the dots.
Horrible, I don't like the xbox analog stick style plus it is wired? Rejected.
1-2 buttons are labeled wrong
Wow this a actually looks much better than the ds4 I may need one
nah i think ill stick with the best controller, the DS4
That's a matter of opinion...
It looks like the Xbox One controller and the PS4 controller had a retarded baby...
Looks like.. it doesn't gonna work.
I'll stick with the DS4. It (feels) perfect imo.
I really like how this controller looks and I especially like the wired aspect. I sit close to the tv anyway. I think I'll stick to my regular controller though. The stick positions just feel like "PlayStation" and I appreciate the unique feel.
I'd like to personally punch the beret-clad hispter who decided that a series of dots communicated the button faces better than the actual shapes or alterations of them. I mean, Logitech did a controller with the square, circle, triangle and X buttons, and an altered version of them. Is it because of licensing fees or something?
I just love the bullet points. "Vibration effect for real feel gaming" Real feel gaming? LOL "...ergonomic tactical triggers" xD "Easy access directional pad" As opposed to...? "Tactical central button" WTF? HILARIOUS!
Reminds me of what some Chinese knockoffs instruction manuals would say. Wow.
I really don't like this controller. :I
Ugly design and it's wired. No thanks.
That looks familiar. I like it.
