On the back of console size, what actually surprised me most was the controllers

PS3 controller was the dwarf vs the 360. Goes to show they really did focus on ergonomics this time around.


The XB1 sticks look a little uncomfortable compared to the 360s.

Saw comparison photos a while ago but don't believe I ever posted my thoughts here about them.

 

I really think they went backwards with the X1's controller. It looks like a hybrid of the duke and 360. I haven't held it yet so I hope I'm wrong, but it just looks like hand grips aren't defined enough.

 

DS4 hand grips remind me of the boomerang controller for PS3. I've read and heard lots of good things about it though. People who hated the DS3 this gen seem to really like it, so that bodes well for me as I'm in the same boat.

The DS4 feels really good in hand. It's much more refined than the older PS controllers yet doesn't lose the familiarity.

Well I'll be the final decider of that personally lol.

 

360 will always be the perfect controller though :wub:

I like the placement of the sticks on the 360/X1 controllers.

Yeah it feels much better. Glad I've got to try it before launch.

I'm glad they went larger.  That is one reason I like the xbox controllers.

I keep hearing that the ds4 is just better overall compared to the ds3, so I cant wait.  I wasn't a big fan of the controller, especially the stick placement, but it sounds like they have tried to improve it in all ways.

 

Your lucky you got to try them out before it launched.  We still don't have any PS4 or X1 demo stations around my area, so I'm having to rely on official reviews and first hand experiences like guys such as yourself.

 

Can't wait to get started.
