DualShock 4

It seems that DICE’s lead designer Alan Kertz can’t get enough of the PlayStation 4′s DualShock 4. In a series of tweets he rather openly expressed his fondness for the controller. Previously he tweeted about how Battlefield 4 will “likely” use the L2 and R2 triggers to aim and shoot because the PS4′s triggers are “so much improved” over the PS3′s.

This guy does seem pretty biased towards the DualShock 4. Then again I can understand why he might be: if a controller fits the way you play as a gamer then you’ll probably stick with it, like what I do with the Xbox 360 pad.

I mentioned in the previous article that I can understand why gamers would be  interested in this because of the DualShock 3′s rather notorious trigger design. However what about the Xbox One controller in all this, huh?

Personally speaking I rather like the Xbox One’s design over the DualShock 4′s. I’m curious to know how that would fair on Battlefield 4. I do agree with Kertz, however, in saying that the DualShock 3′s triggers were pretty shoddy (as far as my experience in concerned).

Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still try out the DualShock 4 when I get the chance (the PS4 is actually my console of choice for the next generation), I’m just wondering if Battlefield 4 will play any differently on the Xbox One controller. It probably won’t (considering my experience with playing Battlefield 3 on an Xbox 360 pad was pretty natural), but you never know.

What do you think of the PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller? Let us know in the comments!

Chirps to DualShockers. Thank you for reading, and I’ll catch you next time!
