    • It's decent but could've been better.

Yeah, whatever. It's just unconfortable to have one stick up and one down. I don't think there's a "standard".

It kinda has become the standard though with Nintendo doing it too, its actually not that bad, I play ps3 games with that button layout sometimes.

Still, it's unconfortable. Have both and ds4 feels waaaaaay better. This new controller is just bigger imo.

I'm afraid it's going to be a lot bigger than the DS4, and I have tiny hands. Also I'm really partial to the colored symbols on the buttons, not sure I like that missing.

The "weird shit" Microsoft does is industry standard by now. Only Sony refuses to adapt to what's common since 2005.

And thank god they don’t.

Making a snap judgement based on a picture probably isn't the best, but I am in the club that don't like it. I'm hoping that a more traditional Dualshock releases down the line whether 3rd party or official but maybe I'll get used to this new one. Thing for me is the picture looks a lot like other controllers I've used and they've all been really uncomfortable to hold so I have a similar image in my head and it could be nothing like that in reality. First impressions though aren't good for me.

Looks slick. It will probably feel natural from the get go just like the DS4 did. I remember misjudging the Wii remote nunchuck thing back in the day. Until I held it in my hand for the first time and didn't have to adjust to it at all.

It looks like it’s wearing a bra. If the DualShock 4 works with PS5, will use that.

I'm impartial about it. Hard to say without holding the controller and actually using it. If the touchpad is inaccurate, doesn't really matter how much I like or don't like the design. I'm also curious how heavy it'll be, what the battery life is, what's the durability of it (if I drop it on hardwood floor for example). Too many unknowns for me.

 

I will say I'm not a fan of the white controller as it's easy to see how dirty they get.

The standard is what the majority is using. Look at Nintendo Switch. They use that as well.

Microsoft's design is hardly standard. Plenty of third party companies copy the dual shock design as well

Looks okay but it looks like it'll be more comfortable since it looks similar to the xbox controller. I personally found DS4 to look better than the Xbox controller but the Xbox controller felt more comfortable in my hands than DS4.

that is ugly AF.  Thanks for pointing out it could always be worse

 

It might be ugly, but X360 controller is the best controller I've ever used. It just fits perfectly in my hands.

Im reserving myself till i hold and use it first hand. I didnt like the PS4 controller when it was first shown and now i collect the damn things lol same with the Gamecube, its one of my favourite and to this day confortable controllers IMO but when i first saw it in Magazines etc i thought it looked like Nintendo had licensed it from the same that made that colourful little xylophone/piano thing that toddlers play with 😅 anybody else thinks it looks like the androids from Detroit when the skin isnt on... 🤔

true, how it feels/handles will be most important but I never liked XBox controllers, too bulky

It looks like my Astro Gaming PS4 pro controller.  I like the white look.  Guess I’m gonna wait till I can get in my hands.

It looks like the Xbox pad, which is not a bad thing considering Xbox pads have a good ergonomy. I don't really like the mixing of the 2 colors though, I hope there will be single colored pads.

I hope it's comfortable for long play sessions.  While I like DS4, my hands hurt really bad after playing for just an hour.  And yeah, they should release more colors as I love collecting them 😆

So far based on some info from the PS blog post and the OP picture: I just hope it feels comfortable ultimately. 

 

Things I like about the new controller so far (in-no particular order):

- Adding light bar to the top/face of the controller.

- They didn't mess with the stick/dpad location

- Added mic for quick chat (assuming there is an option to disable this....sometimes I don't want my mic on and I prefer headsets anyway)

 

Things I'm not a fan of so far:

- Two-tone color scheme (maybe a chance to buy a specialty controller instead or a different color at least)

- The general shape (looks too much like an xbox controller which I was never a fan). At least size comparison is similar to DS4.

- The plain looking buttons. I like the color coded blue X, red O, etc etc.

I think it looks shit cool and it also looks very comfy. Having swapped between maining PlayStations and Xbox's over the different, I can honestly say that I don't have a preference with regards to the stick layout either way.

It's the colour, the white xbox controller design is one of the more popular ones.

 

It kinda reminds me of a stormtrooper in controller form.

my Lexus is white and it remind me of my lexus

Not really. I did not like the battery holder thing. It felt uncomfortable, because my fingers had claustrophobia... And eh, it is a joke that the XBox SXS controller is still using batteries...

The looks are great but I'm really worried about how fat it looks. I find xbox controllers utterly unplayable with how large they are in my hands and i end up with so much strain with long term use from having to fully extend to press buttons so I'm very concerned that the enjoyment of playing will be gone next generation for me. Hard to tell with pictures though, i thought the same of the DS4 and that fit my hands great.
