Maybe this is the year I pick up a next gen system on Black Friday.
Competition is a good thing. It's a chance to crush people.

idk it looks kinda bizarre to me. i respect the two-tone approach, but the execution of it is odd. maybe if the buttons stood out more.

it's trying to be cool and minimalist and it just looks blobby and ugly. it's like if that robot from that pixar movie was actually a gijinka of the ps5 controller. why do modern gamer aesthetics suck so bad

bring back colorful buttons 2k20

the dualshock is consistently a great controller with a classic design, and this is just taking a huge dump on those classic controllers

I don't know, it looks fine ergonomically, I guess, although it may be a bit too sleek. I don't like the cobbled together style though, one color or a less contrasting design would be nice. I just hope the L2 and R2 buttons are easier to press and spam than the PS3 & PS4 ones were.

I just saw it from a different angle, it's doing that PS4 thing again where the L2 & R2 hang off like a hook for no good reason. Probably mushy to the touch again too, that sucks.

I really, really like the feel of the GameCube triggers soft press/hard press, I just wish you didn't have to get through so much soft press to get to the click. If the GC triggers were about half as deep or just had SLIIIIIGHTLY less resistance it would be ideal.

^You could mod a controller for that if you need, you just replace the springs.

^^ I've already modded the C stick and cut the casing around the D-pad so at this point I really might as well... will have to google where to get tiny replacement springs of a specific weight lol

Imagine if the new controller was all squishy but resistive like a stress ball

it looks like it should be

Maybe this is a trick to sell alternate colored controllers, I bet they release black ones right alongside the launch.

I think if they flipped the colors i'd like it better. Black on top white on bottom.

Doesn't look bad to me. I do wonder why they got rid of the colours. Is it because... Well, colour blindness? I mean I don't think that's an issue even on the Xbox since they're labeled and use the colours in in-game prompts.
