I probably shouldn’t have said “junk” - I’ve tried the controller but wasn’t a fan so far. The PS4 controller works perfectly for me.
I kinda thought the same initially, as I have small hands and thought they gripped the DS4 better. But I acclimated pretty quick to the DS5 still and haven't had any comfort issues with it and the games that support its enhanced haptics and triggers feel much better for it.

I do wish PS5 games that don't even support those advanced features could support the DS4 still though since I'd have a couple extra controllers I could use on PS5 games if I wanted to play with 3-4 people on one (which I've never done on PS4, but nice to have at least). I got an extra DS5 controller at least though for local 2-player, which was nice to play It Takes Two with the Wife with. I highly recommend that game if you have anyone in your household to play with too, btw.

At least for me, the DS4 triggers would pinch the lower digits of my fingers. They're a little bit sharp/angular. The PS5's are differently sized and spaced so it isn't an issue.
Even if the PS5 pad had no other improvements, that alone was nice for me. I also like the fact that it's slightly larger and the analogs are less twitchy. It's easier for me to play the same shooters with the new pad thanks to the analogs.

Can you use DS4 to play ps5 games via LAN on ps4?
You can actually, as that was pointed out with this last update that lets PS4 players play PS5 through remote share with the DS4. So that kinda begs the question; why not just let us still use the DS4 without the enhanced functionality on PS5 games?

They know perfectly well that they can sell more controllers this way. They're in first place and don't need to be consumer friendly right now unlike Microsoft and until something affects or threatens their profits/stock value they won't change.

You’d think with all these new features the new controllers would stand and sell well on their own.

They're cool devices but I'd rather use a ds4 over it tbh. The new controllers battery life sucks and the adaptive triggers get turnt off for MP fps games, last thing I need is a trigger fighting me when I need to snapshot a gun lol.

The only place I really use or appreciate the new controller is single player games and I only need 1 controller for that ;)

Leaked/fake promo of the new PS5VR. I'm sure it'll be taken down soon if it's legit.


Looks good to me though!

Saw this video when they uploaded it, the worst part:

Hmmm, nope. (The "HD" logo at the bottom-right should be "HDR" if the video was actually uploaded with HDR.)
