While the Xbox One controller is a great evolution to the 360 controller, the PS4 controller is a real revolution if you compare it with the DS3. It feels so great in your hand. The size is perfect and the buttons and the D-Pad are by far the best compared to any other controller. The new surface feels really good, especially with sweaty hands like mine. Even the triggers are now better than the ones on the Xbox One controller (despite the nice rumble feature).
There is only one thing where the Xbox One controller is still superior and that are those great new thumbsticks with the slip-proof rim. But guess what... you can replace the PS4 with those original X1 sticks pretty easily http://www.amazon.com/Original-XBOX-ONE-Controller-analogue-Thumbsticks/dp/B00IZSTNKW or even get some fancy 3rd party plastic or metal sticks in any color http://www.gadgettidings.com/product/custom-metal-dark-grey-thumbsticks-analogue-thumb-sticks-for-sony-dual-shock-4-ps4-controllers/ for a couple bucks to create the ultimate controller: DS4 with X1-sticks!
A better solution to your problem is $4 more
I just bought the xbone thumb sticks and installed them on my DS4. This was the best decision ever! At first I was skeptical but all the people over at r/ps4mods highly recommended it! Just be sure to watch a few how to install videos and then you'll be golden. I bought these ...
They fit perfectly and if you have ever used a xbone controller you know they have wonderful grip. Good luck bud!
If you're in the US, try here. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IZSTNKW/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1
Does anybody have any ideas where to get them in the UK?
I own DS4 and I agree, and all I did to make it even better was swap the sticks with the Xbox One sticks.
You know what's up! Heres a link:
I got these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IZSTNKW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1
Love em, fit perfect and everything works but with much better grip.
That's who I bought it from
Exactly this. I've been conflicted for a while, like OP, but realized that while XBONE exclusives are okay now, PS4 is about to blow them out of the water with their future lineup. I'm also much more invested in platinum trophies than 1,000 Achievement Points (stupid, I know). My XBONE is literally collecting dust at the moment because I'm much more of a PS guy, no matter how much I try other things.
OP, you can also easily order XBONE Thumbsticks from this Amazon seller and use this video to replace the PS4 thumbsticks for the best of both worlds. I did this after losing the rubber on my original sticks and am really happy with the results.
I bought the Xbox ones off Amazon and it's the best $10 I've ever spent... Seriously, the difference is huge and they feel so much more durable.
These are a good swap instead of the PS4 default ones.

Exactly. I've owned it and I think it feels a lot better than the PS4 controller but it's just a matter of preference. I think I am going to get these and fix the dumb thumbsticks on this PS4 controller.
I've installed Xbox One thumbsticks on all my controllers and it has made a world of difference! They only take like ~6 min to install!
I ordered these!
Then took the controller apart and then it's just a matter of taking the sticks off and putting the Xbox Ones on! There's several guides on YouTube for how to take apart a ps4 controller and it's a pretty easy process, so if you want to give them a try you should have no trouble!
Getting the touchpad to work with Skyrim is actually really easy. You can use http://www.DS4Windows.com to remap the touchpad to various keyboard inputs. Then I used this mod to change the button mapping to where all of my favorites are on the Dpad with the left bumper as a modifier so you get all 8 favorites accessable. After that, you follow the direction on the mod you linked to allow the keyboard and controller to be usable at the same time. You can't use both mods at the same time because they both edit the same file so you'll need to take the first mod and edit its file with the directions on the second mods page.
What I ended up with is all 8 favorites on the Dpad and I bound the various swipes/actions on the touchpad to keyboard commands.
After that, I set DS4Windows to use the PS button as a modifier key adding even more buttons to the controller.
Works perfectly! The only thing you really have to do is when you are rebinding keys in the DS4Windows program is make sure that the 'Scan Code' box is checked otherwise they don't work in the game for some reason. Also, when you are binding keyboard keys ingame to various mods, your controller still has to be off otherwise the game doesn't pick them up.
The versatility of the touchpad alone makes the DS4 hands down waaaaay better than the XB1 controller. The only thing I'm missing now is a mod to change all the buttons in SkyUI to the PS4 buttons. The mod on the workshop unfortunately doesn't work anymore. That or a mod for the controller itself to change the buttons to Xbox buttons since I don't use my PS4 all that much.
Also, I suggest modding your PS4 controller to use Xbox One thumbsticks. They are by far superior and it is actually really easy to do. Both controllers get their thumbsticks from the same manufacturer so they are interchangeable. Here are the thumbsticks I bought off Amazon. And here is a really awesome video showing you how easy it is to do.
Good luck buddy! If you have any questions feel free to ask and I'll do what I can to help!
Enjoy! This has changed my life.
Neat fact, the thumb sticks on the xbox one and PS4 are the exact same size. You can pull them out and swap them.
In case you want to swap them: http://www.amazon.com/2-Pack-Controller-Analog-Sticks-Dualshock-OneSoul/dp/B00IZSTNKW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1420309966&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=xbox+one+thumbsticks
A lot of people, including me, put the Xbone thumbsticks in their PS4 controller. $7
check with /r/ps4mods for any further advice. I switched mine to the OEM Xbox One sticks and love them. They have more grip and feel more sturdy/rigid than the ps4 sticks. I got mine off amazon HERE.
Really easy. Tons of youtube tutorials on the subject too. Entire time takes about less than 10 minutes. Scariest part is after removing the back screws, prying the two pieces apart to get to the guts. After that it's two unplugs of ribbon cables, lifting battery, one more PH00 screw, lift board, remove sticks, install new sticks, then reverse process.
Swapped out all my ds4 sticks for Xbox one sticks, and waiting on 2 2000 mAh batteries from Hong Kong to replace the stock batteries. Gonna be sweet.
I got mine from Amazon.
Must be in high demand, only $5 when i bought em. Amazon link ($9). Ebay Links (various prices)
Video showing how to replace them. (Its really simple)
I got these because of the positive reviews, but haven't received them yet.
Plus, free 2 day shipping with prime
You can do a few things.
I'd suggest the replacement sticks. It's a bit more work to replace them, but it's worth it.
I ordered some from Amazon. Looks like they'll take a while to get here but I think they are no matter where you get them from. Unless you were talking about Amazon Prime?
Here are replacements. Don't know how to replace them though.
Or I use these grips for my XB1. Had them since day one and my thumb sticks are still new.
I bought these, and replaced them myself. All you need is a small screwdriver and some patience. Carefully take the DS4 apart, get to the joysticks, swap them out, then put it back together - it really is easy.
Just search it on Youtube and you'll get 100 tutorial videos.
Bought a Destiny bundle few weeks ago. I replaced my analog sticks with these Xbone thumb sticks. I wasn't experiencing any issues, but I highly recommend swapping the original ones for these ones - more grip and a tiny bit taller
I just purchased these
They are great. Found a good tutorial on youtube and was able to replace them easily. Took about 45 minutes. They fit perfectly for me (others have said they need WD40 to make them feel better).
I had the same problem and ordered the Xbox One joysticks off of amazon. It was fairly easy to swap them out, and it has a made a world of difference.
Got them from Amazon, though the particular set is no longer available: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IZSTNKW?psc=1&amp;redirect=true&amp;ref_=oh_aui_search_detailpage.
Pretty easy to install. I used to be a computer technician though, so I'm pretty used to taking things apart and putting them back together, so I don't want to encourage it too much if you're new to that. Check videos on youtube.
These are the ones i purchased and have been more than pleased.
One of mine has covers. (I just got a second with the Duracell charger)
I actually bought the sticks from amazon: http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IZSTNKW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1
Just open the controller and pop these in.
I was reading somewhere that the thumbsticks are the same. You can replace the ones on the PS4 with aftermarket sticks for the XB1.
I tried many grips but I wasnt happy with them, so I decided to get these instead - http://www.amazon.com/2-Pack-Controller-Analog-Sticks-Dualshock-OneSoul/dp/B00IZSTNKW they fit DS4 perfectly fine and I can't recommend them more! They don't slip even in long gaming sessions.
Please be warned, to actually change them for the original ones you need to disassemble the controller first - which causes to loose the warranty.
Not official. But Xbox one thumbsticks. Much better IMO
Are you talking about these?
Can I use these?
Edit: I took 2 seconds to find those, so may want to look for a better price.
not sure what could be considered non-gaming. but I picked these up and they work great
If I were you, I'd buy Grip-iT. Though I don't own it, it's a pretty well known thumbstick and serves it purposes.
But if you thought the thumbstick looks like shit, you're not alone. If you know how to, you can buy Xbone's thumbstick, it costs twice as much and you'll have to put in on manually but hot damn it feels, looks and lasts good.
I did the same thing to my DS4. Makes the thing dam near perfect if you ask me.
