    I pre-ordered during the initial reveal press conference in Feb. I hope thats early enough for Shopto to give me a Mega Bundle offer.

    Doubt it. Unless you pre-ordered before it was announced you're probably out of luck. You might, might be able to get the mega bundle for PS6, but you'd have to be quick.

    Everyone knows Jack Thompson - but how did he become the game-blaming activist he is today? Read Part One of my new mini-series!

    To those who don't like the PS3 triggers, but prefer the 360 pad in general, what's your preferred next gen pad?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    I absolutely loved the DS4 yesterday, such a massive upgrade it's unreal. I've been using the SA/DS3 since release and hated going back to it afterwards.
    Felt there was something missing with the XBO pad, can't put my finger on it but it just wasn't quite right for me.
    Pretty sure most people will love either so no worries however you decide to go.

    Sounds like there's little difference between them now, as SOny have 'fixed' the triggers and analogue sticks.

    Got to say that I am fine with the DS3 but can see that it is inferior, especially when my fingers slip of the sticks and I have to buy trigger-clips every few months (I constantly lose them).

    If anything the Xbox pad has gone backwards, didn't feel as good as the 360 pad!

    The Xbone pad has tried to fix things that didn't need fixing. Overdesigned for the sake of a new controller.

    Sticks were too small but the precision was spot on. Triggers feel smaller than 360 and the bumpers are too far up. It is a nice pad but not a step forward.

    DS4 was so much of an improvement over DS3 but that is a bit like saying I prefer not putting my hands in lava. It looks a bit odd and overly engineered but the end result is it feels like a great controller and I didn't even mind that the sticks are still in the wrong place.

    Lol, wrong place. Symmetrical thumb sticks work fine for me, but I do have symmetrical thumbs.

    I imagine the Xbox controller team didn't have much freedom and the objective was do little and make it seem new enough. We have Kinect and Smartglass to push so don't do anything substantial that takes away from them or increases the price. Really hope they haven't gone backwards.

    Great to read Sony has finally caught up. Always relegated Playstation to an end of generation cheap purchase for the best games.

    I'm really curious to try the Xbone pad now, quite a lot of people saying it's worse than the 360 pad.

    How is the Xbone pad worse? It looks basically the same.

    Looks basically the same but it feels different. It has loads of minor adjustments.

    Just put a new preorder down for a PS4 with Killzone with ShopTo and they have informed me ts guaranteed for release! : )
  • Deleted user 30 September 2013 20:13:28
    It doesn't look the same to me at all, almost everything about it looks different - shape, D-pad, sticks, shoulder buttons.

    I did too - I'm sure we'll be fine. I know I'm guaranteed a PS4 for release day. Not bothered about bundles as I got Sainsburys nectar points and amazon vouchers etc. So luckily I got options....phew!

    If I didn't have the vouchers then I would be more concerned and onto Shopto pushing the fact that I ordered as soon as the PS reveal in Feb, which is when they started taking pre-orders at shopto.

    Only thing messing me up with Shopto is I can't login to their site as I always have to change password via email. Got a call open with them. Don't fancy trying to sort that when their servers are getting hammered with people switching to bundles. I could miss out :(

    It looks more similar than I thought.

    But I don't like the look of it. Less smooth shape, more clunky and angular. It kind of looks like a 3rd party 360 controller to me. Though a classic cross d-pad is great, it kind of looks like the oversized crappy cross pads you get on cheap 3rd party controllers. Combined with the oversized button names, it just looks a bit cheap and nasty.

    It might play brilliantly for all I know, but it certainly doesn't look as nice as the 360 pad.

    Do you think you're looking at them a little too hard?

    That plastic on the top of that Xbox One pad is horrendous.

    ... glad the Dual Shock 4 is all matte!

    The top part looks so cheap like it actually is a knock off.

    I was never so enamored by the 360 controller anyway. I'll probably really like everything they've fucked up.

    Pop over to the Eurogamer Expo thread.

    ... many were disappointed with the Xbox One pad.

    Hmmm.

    More accurate sticks, 'gun' trigger feedback, superior dpad.

    I'm not expecting it to be worse.

    No one was. That's what's makes it a surprise.

    Wait until you use one before reserving judgement of those who HAVE used one!
