Not at this point in time. I'm sure 3rd party companies are working on it but they haven't released any news. Seeing as how the DS4 is easily the best controller Sony has ever come out with, I doubt a 3rd party option would be able to even remotely compete with it.

I honestly dont like the size of the analog sticks on the ds4.iv also tried the stick covers and they just dont feel right.its clear for people like me a third party option is the best plan.

i would say they no one would dare make one so soon. once people find out things they dont like and companies hear it then they will attempt to make a niche one to fit. as of now? the system has been out for 36 days. its a little too soon.

All PS4 information from Sony available here:

I'm just saying that, in my experience, I have yet to come across a 3rd party controller for any system that was able to make a better experience.  I wasn't a fan of the DS3 and I went through a couple of 3rd party controllers for it but they all felt cheap or oversized.  The DS4 is a solid controller and has received universal praise.  That's why I doubt you'll be able to find a 3rd party controller that offers a better experience.  Even if it replicates an Xbox controller, I doubt it will feel as solid as the DS4 or be something more than an oversized piece of plastic with inferior buttons.

 

I'm not quite sure what you mean by the size of the analog sticks.  Are they too small, too short?  They are physically the same size (albeit different shaped) as every other first party controller out there.

Don't tell me, let me guess; you wish it were more like the 360 controller, and you don't want to get used to a new one?

Really?...Well honk my hooter that's a first! On a serious. I kind of doubt you're going to find anything smaller, just because the functionality has changed, and some features have been added. The DS4 is only a couple millimeters bigger, so in the meantime, give it a little time to get used to.

For most of the games I use DS4, but I'm still waiting to Sony start giving support to third party controllers.

Scuf gaming is working on them. They're taking their time with PS4/XB1 controllers because they are the premiere controller, so their product has to be 'Perfect' for lack of a better term.

But with that sort of controller, expect to pay $150+

There are also modding communities that make their own buttons and sticks out of different materials that you might want to check out.
