Forums - Sony Discussion - We're Finally Getting a Wireless PS4 Pad Without a Light Bar

Analogs in wrong place. :/

I was really excited for a moment when I clicked the thread. But WTF is this shit? Looks like I'm gonna continue to count on my trusty duct tape.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I can't get behind having the D-pad placed there. For browsing menus, sure, but not for things like fighting games.
Sony should just allow us to turn off the light sensor in a future update. They only let us dim the brightness so far.
Although I don't notice a reflection, but I'd like to turn it off to conserve battery life.

No... what they SHOULD do is just jam a bigger battery in there and call it a day. Both the Nintendo Pro Controller and Xbox One controller offer several times the charge that the DS4 does so there's no excuse why they can't as well.

After looking at it a little more, its appearance is growing on me. I think its decent looking.

That's what she said. :)

But... the left stick is in the wrong place. And i dont know why people complain about the lightbar... o yea right, people like to complain about trivial stuff.

Hunting Season is done...

Looks better than DS4.

With the horrible XOne d-pad? Why everyone seems to copy one of the worst d-pad designs of the last decade?

I find the lightbar to be a nice touch. Do people not like it?

I like the Xbox styled Asymmetrical analogue stick layout for everything except 2D games/fighters... Then my preference is the PS4 layout.

Why can't I have both? :'(

Also I would prefer AA battery's. Not just because I can get 3000mah cells (Verses the PS4 controllers 1000mah cell), but they are hot swap-able. Screw cables. Screw short battery life.

The light never was a problem to me and I don't really need a xbox format controller to play, I'm quite used to PS layout
