I then decided to Switch to the pro controller as using the stick feels clunky to me (personal preference) and decided to try the D Pad on it instead. I noticed an immediate improvement, however it still paled in comparison to my dualshock 4 D Pad. All in all, so far it looks like I will not be double dipping on this game.
That is not to say it is a bad port, from what I could tell it is solid. However I do not feel like getting used to another gampad just to play it on the Switch. Especially since when playing on the go, I would be using the joycons which ATM seems unplayable to me. So if I am tied to the TV anyway, there is no reason for me to own anything other than the PS4 version.
If there is a training or tutorial mode in the Beta (there was a Tutorial mode where you performed certain trials in the PS4/XBO Beta) you could go in there to see if you experience the same issue with the controls to rule out online latency.
