It is a nice-looking controller to a veteran PS4 user, but I myself expected more than a controller, what with Sony bugging me through e-mail and whatnot... It's still just a controller, with a promise that there will be a console to go with it, eventually.

Seriously, who unveils a new console, without actually showing the console? Well, Sony, apparently.

So I read an infographic from Reddit claiming that majority of people when asked about the controller layout, would prefer to have the D-Pad and the Left Analog stick swapped; essentially copying the same design as the Xbox controller. Is this really the case?
Absolutely no way in hell Tbh I would be pissed off if they did that. No offence to the people that prefer the layout of the d-pad and sticks on Xbox controls but I hate that layout.

I think a red flag is also that they are not sourcing their information at all. If however it's from an owned site of theirs, then they can hardly call it a "Gamer's Verdict" on such a broad level; because I seriously doubt their site audience can be considered that influential. It'd be like using a localised forum here on Neo and saying the participants are the voice for their country, worldwide.

I'm loving the look of this controller, very slick indeed!

As for the share button I don't think it's being forced on us at all, lol. You don't have to use it if you don't want to. It's not really hurting anyone by being there. xD

It's a really nice controller, by the looks of it, I wonder how it feels. Definitely DO NOT swap the D-Pad and the Left Analog stick, it's FAR better as it is.

Hopefully Sony have finally addressed the issue of the analogue stick's dead zones
What do you mean? (I don't think) I've never experienced anything like this at all.

What I mean is, the active control zones on the sticks are much broader & looser than I prefer. Essentially the point it registers movement on the sticks from the sticks being in the centre to you moving them & the movement being picked up. For example, I'm playing MGS3-HD on my PS3 & I only want to move Snake slowly... I move the stick slightly - nothing happens, move it a bit more - still nothing, a little more - now he's running & I get caught.... Same with COD, I'm wanting to slowly track my scope across the map so I lightly push the stick in that direction, nothing... a little more, still nothing... another nudge & whoa there buddy I've now got the completely wrong target in my sights...
Try it, move your stick very slightly & it will not register movement however on a 360 it does... This is something I found 360 pad to be very good at, & unless you've played on one & made a note of how much more tighter & neater it feels you probably won't get what I mean...

The control sticks alone are putting me off of this system. I HATE the concave control sticks of the Xbox 360, and these look even worse than that.

Won't the concave sticks perfectly match your convex human thumbs?

LZ Scheneider I'm usually playing games for extended periods of time, and the concave tops bother my thumbs after an hour or so, and I start to lose grip and comfort. This has never been an issue when playing for extended periods on friends' PS3 controllers. Plus, the concave control sticks just don't feel very nice, in my opinion.

It doesn't happen to me, I move it ever so slightly and the action in the game moves ever so slightly.

You really don't have to say "in my opinion" when someone asks you for your opinion, ya' know. I'm not gonna sit here and respond about how weird your personal prefaces are and how you're the reason why Sony makes poor decisions like convex thumbsticks and placing buttons under control sticks.

No, instead, I'm going to give you a hard time about it!

I mean, for reals though, aren't the ridges on the edge of these thumbsticks meant to keep your flat platypus thumbs from slipping off of the sticks during intensely sweaty gameplay?

LZ Schneider My hands don't ever get sweaty, and something about the Xbox control sticks require me to continuously readjust my hands on the controller, and it's so annoying!

Man that GC controller is still the greatest one ever.

Don't like the new controller. Share button can *bleep* itself. Swapping the dpad and control stick would be preferable but whatever. For some reason the thing just looks.. I don't know, cheap?

Maaaaan that is so completely the opposite for me. I used to play games on the Wii a LOT and although it's sticks are convex slightly, they have ridges that did a super good job of keeping my phalanges in place, even if such a designed expended the idea of comfort.

Hmmm, now ya' know what would be cool? If Sony sold alternate thumb heads to suit more folks.

The share button is great and all but is it only capable of recording short highlights? Or will you be able to actually record gameplay? MAYBE I CAN LIVE MY DREAM OF BEING A STREAMER.
