DualShock 4 Wireless Controller
It is an awesome controller. Design is super sexy, with touch pad, light bar, and all the other stuff. However the controller gets an 8 rating because of the low battery charge and the thumb sticks literally peal off. I don't want to spend 3 bucks on a controller.
Controller Triggers break easily
After almost 2 months of careful use with the controller, mainly with first person shooters, i discover during a game that my R2 button is broken. It is obviously a design flaw with the triggers being very fragile and there is nothing you can do about it besides contacting sony or going out and buying another controller. I love my PS4 very dearly but this just makes me mad. I do recommend the ps4 and the controller but sony needs to step up to the plate and fix this problem because i know many more people are experiencing this problem.
Good hardware, bad battery
The ergonomics and sensitivity of the hardware is excellent, just wish the battery would last longer.
Way Too Expensive To Cut Corners
So, I know this is a little thing, but it doesn't come with a charging cable. It's just a basic Micro USB, but to spend $60 on a controller and they pinch a few pennies by leaving out a charging cable. I find that to be pretty classless. Design is decent. Feels better than the Dual Shock 3. I have also used a Xbox One controller, and I'll say the Xbox One controller definitely feels nice by comparison. Battery life on the Dual Shock 4 isn't great. It's decent, but I feel like $60 to cut corner on something small like a charging cable is kind of sad. I am recommending this, primarily because you don't have an alternative.
It was supringly better than i thought
To me a controller wont change if I want a console or not. I had the ps 1 and 2 and those controllers I never really liked the sticks were impossible to use the triggers were very annoying and my hands were having cramps. then I got the xbox 360 I really liked that controller but the ps4 controller tops it
The ps4 controller oh my god it s great its comftroble but I had two problems.
1. the joy stick is a lot better but I have troyble when for example im running down the field in fifa my fingers will slide off and im sprinting to the goal I cant fix myself quick enough to score so I mess up which really annoys me
2. the touch pad great idea but its not. used in fifa its used for switching between being a goalie or a player in trine 2 the complete story its used for Amadeus's spells but its very wonky and hard to use the playroom is one of the only tings that rely on the touch pad being avalible
on to the good as I said before I think its better than the xbox 360 controller which a lot of people may disagree but its my opionion. the buttons are in easy reach the d pad has a small curve making it easier to use the joysticks have a lot more friction so they don't just flyaround like on dual shock 1 to 3 also it just looks amazing it just looks like I want to have my hands on it lastly the light bar which is very cool and is awesome when playing in the dark which is cool when playing games where the lightbar switches colors like tiny brains
I love the new controller. It is a huge improvement from the Dualshock 3. I absolutely love the new bumpers. It makes playing call of duty more comfortable.
Literally the perfect controller
This controller is perfect in every way. Touchpad is really cool and very comfortable to use. The light bar is innovative and the back triggers are definitely an improvement over past versions. Definitely a great controller to play games with!
Come on sony
Improved triggers and indented thumbstick but everything else about it irritates me the rubber on my right stick is coming off I dropped it from 1ft and the left rumble stopped working instead of including an unnessesary touchpad make a more durable controller. Hope a third party controller comes out soon I'm not happy with sonys
good product. not that good quality
I have returned two of these controllers. One had sticky d-pad, one had a super unresponsive left stick when I press down while pushing it forward. It all depends on your luck whether you get a good sample or not. The quality is very inconsistent. For the two that now I keep, one has very soft dpad, one has rigid dpad that sometimes hurt my finger. Just wondering how they assembles this that makes it so inconsistent.
Best Controller So Far!!!
i love this controller it fits your hand like a glove, the buttons all feel natural and easy to use. Everyone says the rubber falls off the analog sticks but i dont agree i think that is the customer i have never had rubber fall off any controller. i love the touchpad idea and i cant wait till it becomes more intergrated the one thing out of the whole controller i dont like is that the battery life is like 6 hours but if youve been gaming for 6 straight hours its probably a good reminder to take a break
