the thumb sticks are more rugged and have better grip on them
By Nick TK
I have definitely seen multiple improvements with these new PS4 controllers over the older ones. The battery lasts a lot longer, the thumb sticks are more rugged and have better grip on them, L2 and R2 buttons are more springy (good thing), and the thumb sticks also feel way smoother when moving them around. Other things I have noticed is that the buttons are now grey like the throwback controller and there is now a light on the touchpad. Although the last gen controllers are still pretty good, I would definitely recommend the new gen controllers for only $10 more.

NEW PS4 Controller and definitely an Upgrade
By Jordan Chan
This is the NEW PS4 controller. The easiest way to identify this is the blue LED bar in the front. The thumb sticks seem to be made of a denser, grippier material so that's an upgrade as well. Battery life is definitely better. Should have bought more to replace all my old ones... but oh well.

Controller Appreciation Post
By Margaret H.
I ended up buying this controller as a bundle with my new PS4. I didn't get to choose the color of the second controller, and was automatically sent the red one, which I didn't think I would like (it being very flashy). However, when it came to unpacking my new PS4 I was at first struck by the design of the controllers and then conflicted about which one would be my primary controller (the black one it came with or the red one). I ultimately went with the black one, so my younger brother could "claim" the red controller, but for a quick second I actually considered fighting him over it. Either way though the PS4 controller is hands down my favorite controller I've ever had and held, and that's saying something because I've NEVER taken the time to appreciate a controller's design. It has the classic features that make it easy to just hit the ground running with any game like the joysticks, shoulder triggers, d-pad, etc. The new features include the touch-screen in the center of the controller, which I haven't used much in-game yet, but makes log-ins and such much faster. Then you have the new "share" (which I haven't used yet) and "options" buttons that are functional, but it's a little odd to me to not have a "start" button. All in all I love the design of the controller, the way it fits in my hands, the smoothness of the buttons and joysticks, the touchpad, and just the entire concept.
