I can complain about the life cycle of third party controllers but the legit sony brand seem to out last by decades.
Original ps 1, ps 2, ps 3 controllers all still work and with no problems but the third party sets went into thw bin from failing parts.
Hope its all different but yeah time will tell.
If I wanted third party controllers, HORI's FPS Plus works well for me.
DS4 still looks like horrible toys compared to real controllers.
ethereal, 31 Oct 2016Are they compatible with the Apple TV 4?whats ur point to bring up apple on console section ? u know its different category ... or just want made people fight each other just because ur lame question ??
Meh can't trust razr,had to constantly replace their cheaply made but expensive controls >_> using Brook converter with xb1 controller on ps4 is so much better
Zero, 31 Oct 2016You're not a PRO then. :D You're having a hard time for that? Left + Left + Down +Down? That w... moreNonono. Left, then separate Left + down, then separate Down.
The problem is: it doesn't register unless you press Left + Down separately from other buttons. 1 - 2 - 1 buttons. All in 0.1 or 0.2 second. My fingers don't work that fast. On a d-pad (is that 4-way 'button' called d-pad?) its a simple swipe move, from left to bottom, much easier to perform and works practically every time.
I bought Logitech F310 gamepad (the cheapest they have) and it works flawlessly for my gaming needs. Funny, it costs around 1/3 of Razor one but does some things better. I guess to each their own.
In my opinion, hori of Japan makes the best controllers, they have been making controller since nes/Famicom era and a lot of controllers are highly prized due to high quality design and great ergonomics
the cost is going to be the huge factor. I love razer but in the console market the products have sucked. I had 2 sabertooth contollers that failed. when they work they are incridlble. I am holding out more hope for Nanco. but will wait for pricing before I decide if either will get a shot.

Omg a "pro" controller that's cute! xD
Don't get angry I'm just joking :P

I tried using a Razer Sabertooth Elite gamepad for PC and it was awesome. At the same time, it had a few problems and I had to return it. Among other things, buttons were hard to press and 4 directional buttons work terribly in fighting games - its much harder to execute "left left+down down" combo when you don't have a 8-way directional pad, and have to settle with 4 buttons. I tried using it in some fighting games, the game expected me to press Left, then Left + Down, then Down separately and very quickly, while on 8-way (4-way?) pad I could simply swipe my finger over the pad and it registered correctly. Also, triggers were nothing special - usual long-press buttons. I expected "hair triggers" on such an expensive gamepad. The ones that you can press easily with a twitch of a finger. Quickly. Normal triggers are just long boring buttons for me, which increase reaction time.
Hopefully, new controller will be better than the one I used.
Nacon, definitely. PS controllers are nice, but MS nailed Xbox 360 controller design and they improved the formula a bit with One. Anything closer to that is much more comfortable to me.
I really love the Nacon controller cause it has the xbox feeling, Ive always liked the ps4 above all else but there was always something special to the xbox controller. I would like getting my hands on one of those. This is really something new I can't wait to see what else they bring to the table.
