i loved the 360 controller more than the ps3 controller. I always had thought the ps3 controller was crappy. Now i am impressed with the ds4. The X1 controller feels the same as the 360 to me which is a good thing because 360 had the best controller last gen. This gen it is hard to decide which is better but i think its all preference.

The two things I dislike most about the PS4 controller is that it looks terrible, almost like a prototype that was never finished, also the analog sticks just don't jive with me. I'm happy that they extended the sides of the controller from the DS3.

I just can't stop loving the XB1 and 360 controllers tho. They feel solid, they fit in my larger hands perfectly and the sticks on the XB1 are just right.

I know this sounds weird, last gen I would twist the controllers of each console just to see how much give they had. 360 was very solid while PS3 felt more cheaply made.

Last gen you heard a lot of "if it ain't broken don't fix it" from the sony camp regarding their mostly unchanged controller, but then they went and changed it a lot for this gen in an effort to make it better. I think the DS4 competes well with the Xbox original's S controller but it's still about two full gens behind Xbox One's current control design. At least they didn't remove rumble anyhow, but they went and added a touchpad and a blue light for some reason

Forza defined the Car Simulator Genre, it was always the highest selling franchise in the genre by a HUGE margin. - Izraeil

You are right. too many fanboys trying to decide which controller is better. Pro tip: its all preference

This is supposedly for their big VR venture.

Total waste of time, resources and design if you ask me.

I'm pretty happy with the blue light! Blue's my favourite colour. I pretty much bought the Halo 4 xbox because of all it's blue!

As for controllers, I prefer ps4, x1 feels so so so chunky to me, though I do have small hands. Can't imagine how it feels to a kid. It's not a bad controller though, and for those of you with normal sized hands I'm sure it's fine, just takes a lot of getting used to for me.

I still really hate the look of the touchpad on ps4 though. Ugly imo.

Dreamcast = best controller ever. Xbone is second. Ps controllers have always been crap. Too small and sticks feel wrong

I like the impulse triggers on X1 controllers. Very happy with it.
