New Playstation 4 Controller V2 - Black.

I know Shopto had these a pound or so cheaper with a code a few weeks back but not a bad price for the newer V2 model without a code.

Why would you even try to snap it? It's hard to take your review of the controller seriously when you freely admit to actually trying to break the thing.

Worst pad I've ever had they are absolutely terrible IMO. I've been through about 15 and every one has issues. The main issue is the analog sticks feel like they are going over a bump mainly when pushed up or down, they are also sticky and not smooth to move mainly on the left stick. Really surprised more people don't complain about this it drives me nuts.

I have problems with the dpad where its lost that clicky press for the left and down buttons and if I press them occasionally it moves by itself. Its so annoying. I think I've been through at least 6 of them now. PS4 needs that Vita dpad as that dpad was perfect.

Are you talking about V2 or in general the DS4? I've got only V1s and didn't have any problem after two years so far. Just recently the left stick on my controller is a bit clicky and that happened after playing disc jam! I was looking to buy a V2 but not sure if the build quality on them is as good as the V1 or not?

OP, this is good deal. Heat applied earlier.

All of the PS4 controllers I've had problems with the dpad. Its annoying as I mostly play fighting games and its impossible to play them with the left stick to control. I'm getting fed up as I feel like I'm wasting money buying these.

Never had any issues with either v1 or v2 controllers. V1's battery life is pants though.

The one I have now when I press R3 its like the first time I've pressed it every time, it feels like I have to brake it free if that makes sense. Also the Right trigger is so easy to press its like the spring is really weak which is not good for racing games. When I move the left stick its so damn sticky when moved from centre, again this sucks for racing when I'm making little adjustments its really distracting and just ruins it tbh. I hate this pad its just pure garbage.

Do you have the original PS4 controller or the V2?

A few weeks ago I bought a cheap pad from Argos for £6... Its called PowerA air flow for PS3... It's honestly the best pad I've ever had, 10x better than DS4. Sticks are butter smooth and buttons feel nice, I like it that much I went back and bought the remaining stock haha. Wish I could use it on PS4.

V2. V1 wasn't much better I went through about 8 of those, had problem's with R2 and again the sticks. The main issue with V1 was the R2 been at about 80% sensitivity.. I only found out I had the issue on my first pad when I played Driveclub. DS4 is just a very cheaply made pad and V2 is even worse.

Did you get all those replacements for free or did you pay?

Free I just took them back to Argos and they were swapped over, sometimes I would just get a refund. Twice though I just snapped the pad in frustration, thing with the V2 they are extremely easy to brake due how cheaply made they are. This £6 pad I bought from Argos I wanted to test how strong it was... I put the same amount of pressure on it that snapped the DS4 and it didn't even make a sound haha. The only pad I've had that had 0 issues was the 20th anniversary one, I traded it in with my original ps4 to get a C chassis... Biggest mistake I ever made lol.

Never had problems with V1 or V2. V1 looks better to me as the buttons aren't grey

I think you best read what I said again.... I didn't try to break it I did break it... I didn't say oh let's see how easily I can snap it lmfao.. I got annoyed and broke it. And it wasn't a review in the slightest. Just pointing out the many flaws.

Had three v1, on my first v2 and having no issues about 3 months in.

I've only had one DS4 in 18 months, only issue I have is the battery life is starting to take a noticeable drop. You guys most really mistreat your controllers.

don't forget share and earn + bronze/silver/gold

Bought this for £5 more the other week, classic my life.

Is the battery life a lot better than v1

Damn! I still have my original pad with my launch day PS4 and still going strong and in great condition.

For me the DS4 is the best controller Sony has ever made. I guess we are all different though.

I should sell my V4 controller, it's still brand new in box, got it with the £199 argos bundle. I didn't realise these controllers were going for almost £40.

​Are you sure you never threw your controller before these issues that you speak of started to appear? If you get angry enough to snap a controller, it wouldn't surprise me that you would throw it as well.

You said you applied force on your controller that made the other break. You pretty much saying you were anticipating willingly breaking it.

That being said, a stress test makes a review hard to take serious?

Based on my experience, yes it is notably better.

Having owned a PS4 since release and an Xbox One for six months I can say that the Xbox one controller is superior in every way. The joysticks are made of a much better hard wearing material, they are better placed, the triggers work better without sticking like the PS4 ones did almost immediately. Sony really dropped the ball on these. And having seen how the joysticks on my PS3 have perished and gone all sticky they need to up their game on the next console 's controller. They should cost about half the price.

Throwing is what a child does.... After been through 4 in 1 week and been stressed out I pushed the handles inwards and it just snapped very easily.

No yet again another person that read it wrong....

Hopefully this deal will still be available on pay day

​I have to say the xbox controller does feel more ergonomic to hold but the ds4 doesn't make my hands cramp like the xbox ones after a period of time playing.

And as for the robustness of the controllers, I have 4.two for each ps4 and none of them have ever missed a beat, peeled, broken or malfunctioned. The batteries in the eldest controllers are suffering but in my experience they have been consistent and performed as expected

Any deals on the crystal controller?

Which pad do you guys think looks better with the new black PS4 slim? The V1 or V2?

Cheers

​What do you mean? They look almost identical except for the lightbar on the touch pad of v2

Shopto website is the so terrible BTW. I'm sure I had an account registered with them so when I try to login it doesn't even say whether the account exists or not and just takes me back to the login page without any message. When I try to register it won't work either. What a joke of a website.

I just have mine delivered. I don't know if its just me or if this controllers feels weird and a cheaper feeling than the V1 controller. I don't like how its matte and the dpad feel really spongy to press.

I'm with you. Never had any problems with any of mine. I have had several variants, colours, camo, black ops 3, over the course of the PS4's lifespan and none have ever let me down. One did start to lose the sharpness of a new one so I traded it into Game pricematching CEX for £30 having already bought and stowed a brand new camo one for £32 I believe - I miss the CEX price matching days.

Its definitely the most comfortable and egonomic controller Sony has made as the other PS controllers were awful but I'm not a fan of the overall build quality and the battery wasting gimmicks like the touchpad, speaker and lightbar. Other than that I am happy with it. I still remember how bad it felt using the PS3 controller as it felt like torture playing with that.
