Just what exactly IS your issue with the awesome and amazing Dualshock 4?

I have a 360 too and the only positive I can give it over the DualShock 3 is the triggers. R2 and L2 are awful on the DS3 for racing and shooting games.

 

I don't like the marble-like face buttons on the 360 pad. They're not ideal for hack-and-slash action games like God of War, Ninja Gaiden, Prince of Persia, or Devil May Cry. Or any game that makes big use of the face buttons. The battery pack sticking out of the back leaves no room for my hands. My fingers get cramped between the battery pack and the handles. Let's not even talk about the fact that you still need AA's or to buy another peripheral to power the thing. Never been a fan of the misaligned analog sticks and don't get me started on the D pad.

 

The new PS pad has made a lot of changes from the previous one. The Xbox pad is virtually the same without the battery compartment being uncomfortably in the way anymore. Sony asked for input from developers and made a new controller to their requests and specifications. The DualShock 4 is getting really good reviews and feedback from people who have used it.

Including rave reviews from a lot of diehard Xbox users who, like this guy, hated the dualshock 3 with a passion. I think all one really needs to do is to actually give it a chance and when given the chance, hold the Dualshock 4 for themselves and give it a test go. They'll immediately come to love it as many already have.

 

PS: I LOVE the touchpad. It will add so much more to the experience, I salivate right now just thinking of the possibilities.

Some people are afraid to think outside the box. Quit holding back the gaming community and go play CoD!

It looks like it'll be a palm-based controller instead of a finger one.

Well you know what you can do if you don't like the Duelshock 4, run on over to Xbox or PC and if it still ain't good enough then don't bother gaming or go build your own sorry **bleep** excuse for a controller!

I love the ps3 controller, before they added vibration, I thought it was very light and loved it -_- I hope the new one isn't heavy, I'd op out of vibration for a lighter controller anyday



Got my Vita for $50. Woot.
