@JohnnyShoulder Same, it's the most comfortable pad I have ever used - and I have medium to big hands.

Despite the piddly battery life, select and options buttons not protruding enough, and the waste of space that is the touchpad, there's a reason I opt for the DS4 over other controllers on PC.

It's a good controller with a great gyroscope and comfy triggers.

And, on PC, I can turn that damn useless lightbar off.

@themcnoisy It's similar. Although the Saturn controller has a superior form factor all-around.

Sega used to make THE best D-Pads.

@JoeBlogs i have the same issue with XB controllers, extended use just ends up causing aches and pains, i think it's because of HOW i have to hold it

@Ralizah
I find the Saturn pad a little bit too flat. If the already incredible Mega Drive 6 button pad was a smidge bigger, it would be perfect!

I know its not very popular but Id appreciate the touch screen rumoured for ds5. Possibly having it smaller that the current touchpad to avoid accidental use. Basic functions and keyboard.

@JJ2 I think that would be too expensive to have on every controller. I'd rather them concentrate on stripping stuff off, not adding more faff that hardly any devs incorporate into their games.

@Ralizah buy a psvr mate. You are missing out on the game of the generation! You need the light for erm the light literally within game.

@themcnoisy VR is not for everyone dude. You even said yourself we should have the option to turn off the light bar.

@JohnnyShoulder I was saying it wasn't useless, Far from it and Astrobot is the best example of that. For normal games (none VR) it sucks though, pointless in fact as you often don't see it. So yes being able to switch off the light would be a blessing and save battery. Then flick it back on for Astrobot and Statik!

@KALofKRYPTON How come nobody has ever used the same d-pad as the 6 button megadrive pad? Surely Sega can't still hold the copyright for that?

Seems like a terrible waste.

@themcnoisy Doubt it was ever copyrighted.

Some pad's have lifted the Saturn design almost entirely. MadCatz did a range of decent Street Fighter pads a while back that were near identical. Their later ones had similar d-pads too.

I forgot to mention the DragonSlay Fightpad Elite I have. The d-pad on that is really good too. The hardware is the remnants of the stock of the second revision of the last MadCatz Fightpad Pro they released for SFV before they went bump. It's a very good pad!

It would be cool if it could split in 2 and act as 2 separate motion controllers.

@Ryall. Yeah could work plus you wouldnt have to buy extra controllers for certain VR games.

@Ryall You mean like MS are supposedly making?

I doubt highly we will see much change from the ds4 as it will need to work with PS4 games. Which is a good thing imo as it just needs a couple of qol improvements. I can see them updating the move controllers however.

@JohnnyShoulder That Patent though is most likely to be for adding a 'Xbox' type control to a tablet type screen - probably for the xCloud streaming use. They did show some attachment to a regular looking Xbox controller to hold a mobile phone (or similar size screen) in the xCloud concept video but that probably wouldn't hold an iPad (or similar sized tablet) so having some way of adding two halves of an Xbox controller at either end so you can play xCloud streamed games makes sense. You can't hold both a screen and play on a two handed controller and its not always convenient to prop up a screen on the go either.

Maybe Sony will also make some form of controller for Tablets too if they do streaming on the same scale as MS look to be gearing up for. However, I don't think either MS or Sony will be making any radically different controllers for the next generation of controllers. At most, paddles/buttons that have no 'extra' function and can be mapped to whatever button press you want but the core design being carried over. I bet the XB1 controllers will work perfectly well on the next gen too and for MS I think that is more important with their 'Elite', the Design Lab and the Adaptive controller models. Whether Sony's controller carries forward to, we will see but I would be surprised if it changes anything too much from the DS4.

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...

@BAMozzy The DS4 is a excellent controller it’s probably better than most of the PC pads at the same price point. But it doesn’t function effectively as a move controller.

The current move controllers are of limited use you certainly can’t use a pair of them to replace the dual shock 4 for most PS4 games. They feel like there are couple of generations behind The current VR motion controllers for PC. What I want to see is a pad that has all the functionality of the dual shock 4 and can be subdivided to act as motion controllers without losing that functionality.

As @WedHead says that would remove the need for separate controllers for use with certain VR games.

Edit: Certain VR games really can’t work well on PS4 as neither of the available controllers has all the functionality they require.

@JohnnyShoulder That’s a spitting controller for remote play. It doesn’t appear to have the lightbar and gyroscope you would expect from a motion controller.

My hope for the DS5 is for an improved DS4. No need for any radical changes. One thing that some may think a radical change is the surface. I rather have the bottom half surface be the same as the top half surface that is on the current DS4. I prefer smooth over the textured surface that the current DS4 has on the bottom half.

Improvents: battery life longer like the DS3, D pad and action buttons like the PS3, slimmer touch pad, much larger share and option buttons that protrude much more and are located on a flat surface, and a dimmer dim setting on the touch pad light. Obviously a slimmer touch pad would give space for larger share and option buttons.

My reason for DS3 pads over DS4 pads is how the DS3 pads have been more durable for me and feel more precise. Particulary the d- pad which on the DS3 seems indestructible compared to the DS4 d-pad.

Durability could be addressed by a design that will allow the pop out and pop in replacements of sticks, pads, and bumpers. Such a design would quickly fix contollers that would still be usable if only X, Y, or Z was still working.

Another issue is mapping. How nice it would be if all games provided full custom mapping like Fallout games do. The PS4 custom mapping feature is great, but why is it only one custom setting that can be saved? Five or more saved custom settings would provide saved settings for multiple games.

Last but not least. Just one, only one, please, just one simple press of one simple button to bring up the map.
