Versus – DualShock 4 vs. Xbox One Controller

April 10, 2015 Written by Alex Co

In this episode of Versus, we’re pitting the PlayStation 4 against the Xbox One yet again, but this time, just the controllers. As the title states, it’s a DualShock 4 vs Xbox One controller face-off!

We take a look at each controllers’ d-pad, analog sticks, features and more. We ticked off every relevant category, and matched each controller to see who came out on top in each category, with the one getting the most “wins” becoming the victor.

While some might point out that we are a PlayStation-centric site, that doesn’t mean we’ll side with Sony on these videos. Believe it or not, a lot of our staff members do play on other consoles, and what would be the fun of doing Versus if we just side with Sony all the time, right?

Which controller do you prefer, the DualShock 4 or the Xbox One? What would be your ultimate controller be?
