Now a huge Playstation fan, but the Xbox One dashboard and controllers are much better than PS4's.

ps4 controller is the most comfortable controller in the world

But the triggers are wonky and unresponsive compared to the the xbox gamepad. For FPS and racing games its no comparison.

TheRealTedCruz645d ago

As a PC/PS4 gamer, I never felt the need to set up my PS4 controller on PC vs my Xbox One controller.

Everyone has different hands so....

I can't believe people are disagreeing with Razzer's hand size/preference comment.

Personally, I think the DS4 is a fine controller, but I know the Xbox One controller suits my hands better. Feels more ergonomic to me in general.

Xbox one dash was sluggish when I used to have one PS4 controller is more comfy to hold altho triggers one one pad are better.

As the biggest switch and Xbox fan...
Xbox has only changed dashboards a few dozen times, non seem to work well enough.
I'm cursed with symmetrical hands so DS4 is easily better for me.

I own both consoles and prefer XBL as well. XBL is more pleasant to use and I like seeing a games artwork behind each game you choose. XBL better organizes your games in categories. PSN is more simplistic and boring in handling your game collection and it seems like a gloomy place to hang out in, but then again it depends on the theme you use.

The older Xbox dashboard was trash, IMHO. I've been using the new one for months now and it is an improvement over Sony's.

How did it do that? It copied the XMB structure and went vertical instead of horizontal. It's also super fast and smooth now.

I still get weird ads on my Xbox sometimes, though. Recent one was for a cellphone plan. So weird to see that on my console.

Ps4 owner here, agree 100%, like I don't know quite what it is but the PS4 UI just seems to be soulless and lacks personality. Like it's functional and straightforward but lacks personality

silenthillstrangler645d ago

Controller maybe, dashboard definitely not.

isarai645d ago

This is pretty much the PS4's dashboard though...

Yosemite645d ago

No my Xbox One controller stopped moving up on the left analog I had it for a month and a half I got it this year.

kinda looks like the ps4 dash now

UltraNova645d ago

Not kinda, its clearly PS "inspired"...glad to see MS learned a thing or two about dashboard design, the 10th time around.

Christopher645d ago

It is, and I'm happy about it. Been using it for months. It's great.

CaptainCook645d ago

Not really. It looks like the Old Xbox 360 dashboard.

I hated everything about the last 2 interfaces

I've been rocking this version for awhile now and the consolidation is much appreciated.
