The dualshock 4 controller is really, really nice. And there's a fanmade x-input wrapper that even supports rumble, LED lightbar adjustment, and the touchpad. Feels really nice in the hands and feels damn solid. I'd suggest to anyone who's on the fence about one picking one up. Best controller I've used in the last 8 years by far.

What does the touchpad do on PC when you use the wrapper to get it working?

Are L2 and R2 good? Does it have multiple increments (like in GTA IV, if you hold down the aim button half-way it goes into free aim; all the way makes you lock onto targets)?

The L2 and R2 triggers are VASTLY improved. They feel like actual triggers, they have weight to them, and they work just find. The rest of the buttons are digital, but the triggers and sticks (duh) are analog.

As for the touchpad, you can press it anywhere to act as a button (similar to a Blackberry Storm if you've ever used one), but people are figuring out how to properly use it. IIRC there's a group of devs working on having the touchpad be compatible with DS emulation.

I don't like the joysticks in the DS4, they felt better as they were in the previous models. Everything else feels fine, I have been playing a lot with it.

What don't you like about the sticks? I think they're one of my favorite improvements as my thumbs would often collide while using the DS3. (not trying to argue that they're better, just wanna get your take on it)

It feels like a Xbox controller remolded into PlayStation style and it's awesome. I like the Xbox controller because of my big hands and hated dual shock because of how small it was. But sony got the message and the new controller is so much bigger and the new sticks are perfect. Never liked the old mushroom style of the ps2 ps3 sticks.

always felt the joysticks on the ds2 and 3 were loose and the deadzone felt bigger and as a result felt sloppier for aiming anything.

I don't like the shape, I had no problems with the old design.

The new one feels like the stick is tiny.
