Well I cannot speak for the PS4 controller however I can explain the extra XBOX ONE controller purchases.

It is to replace the one you throw at the wall when the game wont work any longer because your internet has been off for 25 hrs and the sudden realization you bought a dud, even though everyone warned you well in advance.

The only next gen game I know of that has local MP is COD Ghosts, ShadowFall hasn't said yet or TitanFall and the rest of the games seem to be Online MP or SP

racing games? personally for me when ever i go to a friends house or he comes to mine it goes without saying that we each bring our controllers with us never bought an extra one this gen

Correct me if I'm wrong but have DriveClub or Forza5 said they have split screen? I know they have online MP but don't know about local, I also don't think the Crew will have split screen as its a MMO kinda game.

all the sports games as well

Sports and racing games shouldn't need to mention that they have local multiplayer, it should be a given.
The Crew is open world but I'm pretty sure it is NOT an MMO so it definitely should have local multiplayer too.

Burnout Paradise is an open world racing game and it has local multiplayer (though it was an after thought so it it's DLC).

I'm not buying a second controller, I'm not into sports games and don't see any local multiplayer games outside of that realm so far for PS4. The Xbox One has Killer Instinct though.
