Who thought this button was a good idea?
>>
Me.

>press Select
>it’s actually the Share button
>Share menu comes up
>all your Select functions were moved to the touchpad, retard

RRRRRRRREEEE
>>
I have more trouble with the stupid touch pad in the middle being used at the start & select buttons depending on what corner you press. It's like having your spacebar do different things depending on where you press it. It's a stupid fucking idea.
>>
What's wrong with that button?
>>
>>416515870
>press share button
>works as a select button because I'm using it on PC
>>
the DS4 was designed by PlayStation Europe. retards who never designed a controller before beside the Move controllers.

they should have got the Vita designers to design the DS4
>>
>>416515995
A lot of game use that little thing as the menu or 'start' button. Trying to press that thing in the middle of a fight or to pause the game is extremely annoying compared to previous controls.
>>
I'm more concerned about who the fuck decided to out a 'share' button on it.
Does sony think everyone wants to be a streamer? Do normies go around PMing each other on Sony accounts, sending videos of them playing 'yoo brad check out this sweet play, d a b"?

>not using the left side of the touchpad as select, and right side as start, then not using either for those tiny awkwardly placed buttons

Who thought fucking with everyone's long established muscle memory was a good idea

How fat are your fucking fingers? Christ.

>>416516307
what are you retarded or something?
>>
>>416515870
At least im not alone with still doing this
>>
he touchpad is the stupidest thing since they put a track pad on the back of the Vita.
>>
>>416516307
Is it? I never really had a problem pressing it. Could it be better? Of course, but I honestly don't have the same experiences you have had with the DS4. my only gripes are the awful battery life and flimsy build of the control. I cracked one by gripping too hard, and I'm a pretty weak dude
>>
>>416516334
I unironically like the placement and how clicky they are.
>>
>>416516307
>Trying to press that thing in the middle of a fight
Why would anyone want to do this? And it's close to the main buttons so it should be easy to press, right? I don't play consoles. Serious question.
>>
>>416515765
99% of the time I go to press it, I hit the corner of the touch pad.

But at least it's not as bad as the GameCube's octogon analog traps.
>>
>>416515765
it was designed that way on purpose. it's so you subconsciously have to find the button rather than slide over and hit it on accident.

t. ux designer
>>
>>416516459
it's silly as a touchpad, but it can still serve as like 8 different buttons if the game needs it

in some other games there was minor uses like to scroll the mini-map

just a versatile thing to have, depends on how devs use it
>>
>>416516419
Try doing it without pressing the touchpad by mistake.
>>
>>416515870
>>press Select
>>it’s actually the Share button
>>Share menu comes up
Found the falseflagger

>>416515870
>Customize the Share button into a one click screenshot/hold for vid capture button.

Wooowww. How was I supposed to know that? I bet you cunts have trophy notifications enabled as well. Retards.

>>416515932
Never ever fucking ever happened to me. Just what games are you fucking playing?

>>416516307
Retard.

>>416516315
Come on. You don't take the odd screenshot?

>>416516334
PC gamers don't get to have an opinion.
>>
>>416516605
Instead, you end up hitting the touchpad by accident.
Genius design.
>>
>>416516717
>replying to a bunch of shit like this
What an ego defensive cry baby. So your favorite garbage is being criticized. Big deal.
>>
>>416515765
You get used to it. It's actually a very small move compared to the other guys, making it easier to access once you know where it is
>>
>>416516865
I came here to argue about video games and shitpost from time to time. Take my nuts out your mouth and eat your dad's shotgun. Nobody will miss seeing your obese face.
>>
>>416517045
You disagree with some opinions. Why do you feel the insane compulsion to try to change the opinions of other people? Are you fucking retarded? Do you really think your impotent bleating is going to do anything but earn you some ridicule for being such a thin skinned infant?
>>
>>416517045
So edgy and darks, you must like Playstation stuffs.
>>
>>416516865
>getting baited
>>
>>416517187
Heads up. Making fun of how stupid someone is isn't getting baited. Saying something that gets you a reply isn't baiting someone. Intentionally making somebody mad is baiting them whether they respond or not. Get your shit straight, newfag.
>>
>>416516356
I have pretty slender lady-like fingers and I still struggle.
>>
>>416516307

That's shit game design then. I've also never had that problem. The controller is sound.
>>
>>416515765
This reminds me. I got a spare DS4 controller to use for PC.
I've heard that this controller is better than the DS3 in terms of driver support and in general.
I've tried internet searching what drivers to get/how to install, but every result is from like 2014.

What's the best means of installing DS4 on PC? I want to be sure I'm getting a not shitty, un-chinese botnet peice of shit.
>>
>>416516717
>PC gamers don't get to have an opinion.
works for me on linux, wouldn't know for windows though

it's handled as a separate device
>>
>>416517315
>refusing to accept when played like a damn fiddle
>>
>>416517436
DS4Windows seems to work just fine for me.
>>

>refusing to ascend above 75 IQ
>>
>>416517436
OP here, DS4Windows is the best option, then you have Steam. Do not try to use DS4W while using steam because it fucks up your games.
>>
>>416515765
The same retards that thought that putting a fuckhuge completely useless trackpad on the entire front of the controller was a good idea.
>>
>>416517918
well, everyone kept complaining the DS3 was too small for some reason

I guess they had to fill the space after making it bigger
>>
>>416517830
This kind of answer screams manchild.
>>
>>416518487
See a doctor. You're hearing things.
>>
>>416518576
So edgy.
>>
>>416518681
Edgy isn't the same as wrong; just offensive to you. You're offended because you are new here.
>>
>>416515765
It's shit. They could have made it stick out more and that would've decent. But no they had make it cool-looking cause fuck man PS is so cooool y know wha i'm sayin. So you get a cellphone button dawg
>>
>>416518785
So edgy.
>>
>>416515870
>press select button
>it doesn’t actually select anything
>>
>>416517851
What do I do if I want to use Steam? I can't use the controller at all if I'm running steam?
Does it just mess up steam games or any game as long as steam and program using ds4 controller are up at the same time?

I should note, I don't plan on using bluetooth. I'm fine with just keeping it plugged in to usb
>>
>>416518352
Wait what the fuck? People complained the DS3 was small? The only issues I had with it were the oddly configured deadzones on its analog sticks and its low grip triggers, and I have big hands.
>>
>>416519723
Check the setting in DS4Window and mark Hide control PS4, that way you can play anything.
>>
>>416517851

Did a quick seach. Is this what you're referring to? https://steamcommunity.com/app/441830/discussions/0/352788917752676598/

Doesn't seem so bad, unless I'm missing something.
