There have been many different tyres of consoles released over the years and each one including their specific kind of controller, but none are or has ever been as popular as Sony's Playstation and Microsoft Xbox and each has changed the features and ergonomics of their controller design, but their brand identity and usability are still true to their original designs.
Both brand new and updated controllers from the PS5 and Xbox Series X and Series S have seen some major updates and improvements but which one is actually best?
Here are some Pros and Cons of both systems:
- Improved ergonomics
- Impulse triggers
- Share button
- Asymmetrical thumbstick layout
- Hybrid 8-directional D-pad
- Compatible with Xbox One
- AA batteries
- Light bars moved
- Adaptive triggers
- Haptic feedback
- USB-C charging
- Built-in microphone
- Create button
- Symmetrical thumbstick layout
- Triggers are not as ergonomic
So both are brilliant and brand new controllers, but if you really dive deep into the technical differences, it seems as if the Xbox is slightly better, but at the end of the day, it's up to which platform you prefer and are more familiar with.
