How to choose the best PS4 controller?

Analog layout

A great debate that has been going on for some time: a symmetrical or asymmetrical arrangement is better? Difficult to answer, perhaps not even so correct to do so. The truth is that it all depends on your habits and comfort, there is no better arrangement ever. Trivially, if you are used to playing on PlayStation, and this is an article dedicated to PS4 controllers, you will probably be used to a symmetrical arrangement; the opposite is true if you are an Xbox player.


Hours and hours spent in front of your favorite game, perhaps even competitive. It is normal to get tired! After a while your hands won’t want to know any more and the controller handle will become more and more slippery. When going through very long sessions, you need to make sure 100% that you are comfortable with the controller, and to do this we must first choose – as we said before – the most comfortable analog arrangement, and secondly a controller suitable for our hands, whether small or large. Also not to be underestimated are some anti-slip textures, in case you have hands that are particularly sensitive to sweat.

Additional features

Not particularly necessary in the case of controllers designed exclusively for the Sony console, but suitable for the most demanding gamers. In case you usually face many competitive games, or maybe aim to become real expert players, in this case there are two solutions: switch to the PC with mouse and keyboard, or, if you are here, buy a controller that has many additional functions such as extra fully mappable keys and levers located on the back of the controller . This way, the controller will become perfect for the game in question and the games will get a nice boost!
