Posted in all 3 forums for maximum vote count, because not everyone is going to visit all 3 forums.

Honestly, all have pro's and cons. But for me, the PS4 wins.

Other pads do things better, but they also do things worse. The PS4 is a "jack of all trades, master of none" pad for me, whereas the X1, Pro and Gamepad all do some things amazingly, but they also have some awful things about them.

And I still think the Razer Sabertooth from last gen is the greatest controller ever. It's a 360 pad with a functioning D-Pad, 8 extra buttons (P.C games have proven to me that controllers need more buttons. And the RS adds 8 without sacrificing any form or functionality) and customisable stick sensitivity.

If Razer do an X1 pad that's identical to the RS, only with rumble in the triggers... I'd buy 2 right off the bat.

And yes, I have used all 4 controllers in the poll quite extensively.

I'm not saying the ps4 controller is bad. But the Xbox one controller is just perfection.

Never was a fan of PS controllers but the DS4 is amazing.
That said I still voted for X1 controller because it's everything the 360 controller was but better imo

For me to call it perfect, I'd need the D-Pad moving about a centimetre to the left and for it to be bigger, then the bumpers would need adjusting.

I never had a problem hitting the bumpers on the 360, whereas I have nothing but problems hitting or holding them with ease, speed and comfort (the latter is only applicable when holding). I'm dreading GOW X1 as I was a master at active reloading.

But that is literally it. Everything else is bang on.

After using all 3 for some time, honestly in my opinion.

The Xbox One Controller is the best.
The Wii U Pro controller is the 2nd best. (Best D-pad in my opinion, If the right thumbstick was moved lower same as the X1 Controller, instead of being symmetrical, it would be the best.)
The DS4 is the third best controller in my opinion.

Though the Wii U Gamepad is unique in my opinion and is very comfortable, if the left and right triggers weren't digital and instead analog, it would be the best controller this gen, tied for 2nd best controller this gen in my opinion. The Wii U Gamepad is surprisingly VERY COMFORTABLE and unique, just wish the left and right trigger buttons R, ZR, L, ZL, weren't digital.

Wow. Xbox actually won a poll.... For like the first time ever.

Really I expected everyone to troll and say both Wii controllers were better. Would not be surprising considering the growing infestation of degenerates on this board.

X1 it fixed the only thing wrong with the 360 controller (the D-pad)

X1 by a longshot. Followed by Wii U Pro, then the Gamepad. Sony's idiotic decision to keep putting the sticks on the bottom of the controller lands them in last place. Doesnt help that it has that idiotic light on it and a 5 hour battery life.

Xbox 360 pad. Otherwise, Dualshock 4

Xbox one is the perfect controller. Everything about it was built for my hands.
