Do you have smaller than average hands by any chance?

Nope. I just like having my thumbs line up on the bottom instead of in the strange way the xbox lines it up.
Probably has to do with I grew up with PS and switched to the 360 this generation. I'm very glad to be switching back, I feel like I've been away from home this entire time.

I find the PS controller quite fiddly and awkward. confused.gif

The layout on the dualshock controllers doesn't make much sense to me.

 

It made sense at first when they added the thumbsticks since you were still using the dpad for most things and the thumbsticks were secondary. But now that the left thumbstick is used far more than the dpad it should be in the more ergonomic primary position. They just decided to stick with their original design instead where the thumbsticks are just like an add-on.

 

Xbox controllers were basically designed for games where you have your left thumb on the thumbstick and your right thumb on the buttons most the time. The design makes a lot of sense.

no, you're not. my hands are symmetrical to each other; why is the controller not?

The Xbox analog placement is the most natural, and the most comfortable. It still irks me that the Dualshock's left analog is on the bottom. It's not practical, as you basically have to 'reach' with your thumb at almost all times. The left analog is for movement, and movement is something you do the vast majority of the time. The right analog is mostly for aiming or camera control. You use face buttons much more than that for the majority of games out there. Wii U's controller.... really messed that up.

I like PS4 controller scheme better still thank you. Maybe it got to do with how I've played like that with analog stick my whole life since PSX era.

My first analog was the Sega Saturn's NiGHTS analog controller. Left analog was on the top left. As was the Dreamcast's analog. The only analog I have ever used with a lower analog was Playstation controllers. I don't have a problem with them, but they're just not as comfortable or practical.

Saturn was never big here (though Genesis was) so I'm not familiar with it but by god, these thing

 

 

makes original Xbox controller

 

looks cute lol

It's actually not as big as it looks. It's about as wide as the playstation controller. But it is tall. And VERY comfortable.

I take no issues with the PS4 controller. The only flaw has been fixed by ruberizing the thumbstick so I am happy.
Also the build quality seems to be improved
post #162 of 890

DS4 appears to be a bit bigger and phatter which can only be a good thing. Whereas the MS Xbox One controller seem to have shrunk which can only be a bad thing lol

 

The DS 3 because the sticks are on the wrong place you have to hold in your finger tips which make it easy to drop particularly for racing titles lol.

But it´s of higher quality then the MS controllers despite many drops they never lost any precision. MS truly can´t build hardware their analogue sticks loose their precision in no time despite no drops.

In all seriousness, I think the preference between the Playstation and Xbox style controllers stem from whether one uses the digital joypad or analog joystick more often. From the look of the WiiU, I think it falls a bit more in line with the PS-style.

EDIT: Looking back, I think the N64 controller managed to cater to both quite well... even if people found its shape rather odd.

That could be another reason - having my hands in 2 completely different positions feels incredibly strange on a controller. Probably another reason I don't like the wii controllers.

But with the Playstation controller they are in different positions for the vast majority of the time in any game that isn't an FPS.
