These fit in my little baby hands so well. They hold a charge for a long time and the light on the top is great!! I think they're definitely worth the price and they're really well made. Wireless is a must

Out of all gaming controllers, Sony has always beat them all. This sleek, durable, design is perfect for playing. The battery life is great, the light bar and the touch screen are new features for the PS4 that also have sensory motions they are sometimes used within games! (Last of us, Until Dawn, etc) The light bar interacts with games and changes colors! ( Blue, Green, Red, White, Orange, Yellow,) This controller is beyond durable, the analog sticks and buttons are still in great shape after 3 years and I have dropped, throwed, and hit. ūüėÖ There isn't a scratch on it period!

The battery life is lacking on these for the cost. $50 for a new controller?! The system should at least come with 2 if they are going to make them so pricey. They are the most comfortable gaming controller on the market though I think.

When I first purchased my PS4 over a year ago, one of the most exciting things for me were the features of the new controllers. These controllers have quite a bit of girth to them, and Sony has replaced the smooth plastic feel with a rubber coating on the underside of the controller. All buttons and analog sticks are easily reached with thumbs and fingers alike. The new touch pad adds new challenges to various games. The light bar is mainly used with the ps4 camera, but I've seen various mods and stickers out for it already. Battery life for the ps4 controller isn't amazing, but it isn't horrible. I can average about a 4-6 hour session before it gets down to low battery. One thing that has left a bad taste in my mouth on this particular controller is that the rubber on the analog sticks comes off if you game quite a bit. This means A. you have to learn to live with it. B. buy a new controller or C. buy covers for the analog joysticks. All of which you should not have to do if the controller was designed properly. All in all the design and technology put into the PS4 controller is some of the best I've experienced first hand, but there is room for improvement with quality control.

These controllers are decent but not great I've had to replace One controller within the last year because it just stopped working so you have to be careful with these two they do do what they need to do but they break easily

I have the gen 2 PS4 controller and prefer it to the gen 1. It cost about as much as a new game. I use mine almost everyday. Mostly play COD WWII. It also is not too bulky so it is comfortable to hold.

I love the new controllers and the concept of it, but after a while the buttons start to stop working and buttons are harder to push. Its frustrating and these controllers are not cheap!!!

Great standard replacement or addition to your controller collection. Works great with no glitches. Charges well and the charge lasts a long time per use between charging!

I love that these controllers are wireless, however, for some reason my controllers will act up at times and say low battery and not work at all even when it is plugged into the charging cord

This control is a huge upgrade from the PS3 one. First reason it's better because it has a small speaker in it that some games use (ex. Grand Theft Auto V). Reason number 2 is that it has a light at the end of it that turns on whenever you turn it on & changes colors with the type of game you're playing (ex. Turns green for Franklin, Orange for Trevor, & Blue for Michael in Grand Theft Auto V). The last reason I have which I think is the best is that you can plug in regular headphones in it & can use them instead of using expensive gaming headphones, & if you have headphones that have a microphone on it you can use it & talk to people with it.
Overall, the PS4 control is a huge upgrade than the previous console had.

This controller feels very comfortable in hand but do you feel like they could've made the touch pad maybe easier to reach rather than have to extend your thumb and almost take your hand off the controller to use it?

I received a DS4 as a gift about 3 years ago for PC gaming (works great!). My roommate just got a PS4 and I noticed that, on her DS4, there's an extra light bar on the front if the touch pad. It got me wondering; Are there any major differences to the controller that would warrant an upgrade?
