Costs for the starting, complete virtual reality package that includes the headset, audio, 2 motion controllers, and the platform:

(Complete here means full headset tracking, motion controllers for hand tracking, and some sort of headphone solution for audio)

|Oculus Rift | HTC Vive | Playstation VR
Platform | $850 PC | $850 PC | $350 PS4
Headset | $600 | $800 | $400
Controllers | $??? | $0 | $60 ($30x2)
Tracking | $0 | $0 | $45
Audio | $0 | $0 | $0
Total | $1450+++ | $1650+ | $875+

* For HTC Vive and PSVR earbud alternatives, headphones have a lot of price variation. Depending on the brands you get, generally the more you pay for your audio, the better your virtual reality audio experience will be. My virtual reality headphone-type (open, closed, in-ear, etc.) breakdown can be found here. I also highly recommend looking at Head-Fi's price recommendation list for good ideas on headphones to consider purchasing.


Quick, cheap PC with minimum Rift/Vive specifications that includes everything as if you're starting from absolutely nothing.

CPU | Intel Core i5-4590 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor | $189.99
Motherboard | Gigabyte GA-B85M-DS3H Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard | $56.99
Memory | Crucial 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory | $28.99
Storage | Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive | $49.89
Video Card | XFX Radeon R9 290 4GB Double Dissipation Video Card | $282.14
Case | Thermaltake Versa H21 ATX Mid Tower Case | $35.12
Power Supply | EVGA 600B 600W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply | $49.99
Operating System | Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM (64-bit) | $89.92
Monitor | HP V193b 60Hz 18.5" Monitor | $69.99
Keyboard | Fellowes 9892901 Wired Standard Keyboard | $5.37
Mouse | V7 M30P20-7N Wired Optical Mouse | $4.71
| Total | $863.10


You can cut costs further by removing keyboard, mouse, monitor, and perhaps finding a way to get a discount on the operating system. You can also change the case, or the storage for something cheaper. You may be able to lower the power supply, but I don't recommend it. If you remove the OS, monitor, keyboard, and mouse, you can cut about $160 off.

u/Reebzy · 56 pointsr/PS4

Let's be clear though, the PowerA dock is the best one.

> PowerA DualShock 4 Controller Charging Station for PlayStation 4 by POWER A

u/The_Masked_Bandito · 47 pointsr/PS4

This is the best one i've seen so far.

u/CannibalVegan · 42 pointsr/GameDeals

Or just buy a controller for $45 from Amazon

u/-CdG-Luck · 40 pointsr/Gamingcirclejerk

If you're going to jerk about consoles, at least get your fucking information right.

Consoles are NOT $400 anymore. At most, $350 for a new one. PS4 $349 [Xbox One S $299]( Wii U $299

5 games will cost $300 if you don't have GCU or Amazon Prime and buy new releases, shit. I could pre-order 5 games now on Amazon and it'll be less than $250.

What the fuck kind of accessories are you buying that'll equal $100 - 200? I bought a fucking stand and another controller and a usb extension cable. Under $100. Double digits motherfucker.

Yep. Uh huh. 1 year is totally $150.

u/SkeptikalAnus · 24 pointsr/StreetFighter

i recommend the street fighter official guide book comes with a little collectible and has frame data to get you started and explains everything you will need to know without confusing you but wont go too deep and gives some helpful tips. you can buy it from amazon or your local gamestop or game distributor. the free alternative being an app called V frames that will provide you with frame data, combo videos and more.

also if you are just getting into street fighter just remember a stick will not make you good nor is it a nessasity. it a controller preference. its something you need to get used to and may complicate the early stages of learning and control at the beginning.IMO i wouldn't buy an arcade stick right off the bat, get to know the game a little better. but IF you are adamant on getting a stick i personally recommend the Hori Mini 4 as a good entry level stick and its faily cheap around $40 US i also recommend you see this Video on how to operate an arcade stick before and after you make your decision or not to purchase one. but if you are going to toss big bucks right now some good options are the Hori Rap4 around $150 US , the mad catz TE2+ around $230 US and the Mad catz TES around $200. if you are wanting to buy any of those i recommend you wait till EVO starts because they will be having discounts and promo codes for sticks.

On the sub reddit here we have something called geifs Gym its great for digesting parts of the games deep competitive underbelly in a way we all can understand. i dont have a link to the archive but they do appear every couple of days so stay posted with that.

Gootecks also has a good video for beginners

Vesper arcade has good videos to help aswell

hoped this helped. Welcome to the FGC. Fight hard,Never give in and Remember to... RISE UP!

EDIT : geifs gym link /r/StreetFighter/wiki/v/GiefsGym

u/NotRye · 24 pointsr/PS4

It's going to be a pain in the behind plugging in your controller to charge all the time, so I recommend the PS4 dual charging dock

u/Jashyk · 23 pointsr/PS4

The only one worth considering in my opinion is this
It uses the aux port on the bottom to charge, whereas most need something plugged into the usb port on top before putting them on the charger, which looks tacky.

u/squirtz78 · 21 pointsr/PS4

Get one of these

One of the best purchases I have made for my ps4. I have mine setup right next to the couch so if a controller goes dead I just reach over and grab the other one.

u/Rarely_Sober_EvE · 20 pointsr/dragonballfighterz
u/ChuckieFister · 18 pointsr/dbfz

Yes! The Brook super converter has always worked for me. You just need to be sure to keep the firmware on it up to date or it will randomly disconnect. They're pretty good at keeping up with the PS4s updates.

u/xComett · 18 pointsr/Tekken
u/Its-Benderin-Time · 18 pointsr/GirlGamers

Honestly when I need a new controller I buy the name brand. I've bought a few off brand controllers and they always die way faster (both in battery life and longevity of the controller) and have issues with sticky buttons, small sticks, etc.

Looking on amazon they don't have any purple name brand, but they do have 3rd party vinyl skins you can buy.

Hope this helps!

u/tubzgaming · 18 pointsr/PS4

I use: ORB Controller Thumb Grips 4-Pack (PS4)
The 2 Xbox360 Grips feel just like the 360 ones which feels great on the DS4 imo

u/Boreras · 17 pointsr/Games

And adding your picture in stream with the Eye, according to the amazon page.

> Automatically integrate a picture-in-picture video of yourself during gameplay broadcasts, and challenge your friends during play.

u/BlueRajasmyk2 · 17 pointsr/playstation

There also a port on the bottom for recharging, which is part of what makes this charger so great.

u/S4MH41N · 17 pointsr/PSVR

Not trying to start shit, but this stand is always around 30 bucks, and will charge TWO dualshocks, two Move controllers, and will hold PSVR set as well as headphones.

Just throwin it out there.

u/bolivar-shagnasty · 16 pointsr/PS4

Here's a very highly rated and very inexpensive controller charging station on Amazon

My PS4 controllers die all the time. It's nice to be able to just plug it onto this thing. It has an AC adapter, so it doesn't plug into the playstation.

Also, about Destiny, unless he has a lot of friends that play it, you might want to hold off on it. Lots of people, myself included, felt disappointed in what the game actually turned out to be. If he has a lot of friends that play it on PS4, then it'll be fine. But if he plans on playing it solo, it gets kind of boring and repetitive pretty quickly.

u/MarshawnPynch · 16 pointsr/PS4

Get the PS4 charging dock

It's $17 (which isn't too bad) but you'll always have a place to put your controller when you're done playing and it'll keep them wont ever have to worry about battery life or keep the controller tethered to the system

What kind of games are you interested in? I could give you some recommendations. PS+ is a must-have for online play and is well worth it for the free games.

u/rKappaShitPoster · 15 pointsr/Kappa

Wrong they're $48.90 NEW

You literally cannot defend this shit fanboy Downvoted for lying to defend your autism love for a brand.

u/Zestocalypse · 15 pointsr/playstation

This is the one that I bought around the time the console was released, and it's the best thing ever. If you'd rather pick it up at a store, I always see these at Best Buy with the rest of the PS4 accessories.

u/Noxzer · 13 pointsr/PS4

It's for the charging station. I use it so that I don't have to fiddle with plugging/unplugging the controllers. You just click them down and you're good to go, station plugs directly into the wall.

Also, it's cheap. Would highly recommend it.

u/giubaloo · 12 pointsr/PS4

I have this and this and I'd highly recommend them both.

u/TitanIsBack · 12 pointsr/PS4

Screw games, get one of these and a second controller!

u/olbaze · 12 pointsr/fightsticks

It being a Razer product in no way justifies the price. At best, it explains it, as Razer is infamous for selling overpriced, crap products. Even this stick is literally a rip-off of the Mad Catz fightpad, except it's even less usable (no analog stick) and somehow costs like 4 times as much. Even the very similar Hori Fighting Commander is a third of the price.

u/Azerius · 12 pointsr/PS4
u/Gr4mm4rN4zi · 12 pointsr/salty

I got a Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 off Amazon for ~$200. Works on PC and PS4, feels great, looks great, all that jazz. Definitely recommended

u/DaReapa · 11 pointsr/NoMansSkyTheGame
  1. Yes there is a ps4 controller in the works made by Ben Heck and pre existing ones for other platforms.

  2. If you have a prosthetic that you feel confident to use with a joystick you can get a joystick Controls on PS4 are mapable on the console itself and PC is always mapable wether in game or third party.

  3. You can also get a ambidextrous mouse type ps4 controller here These are $300-400 though but can be used on all platforms from ps2 to ps4, xbox to xbox one, and PC.

  4. For PC the Razer tartarus has good reviews for people needing one handed gaming on pc as it functions like a traditional mouse with the second "joystick" placed at the thumb. Unfortunately its made for left handers (you didnt say which hand).

    Good luck in your journey. Cheers!
u/chuckles_the_clown · 10 pointsr/StreetFighter

HORI RAP4 is going for $150 on Amazon these days, and is compatible with PC and PS4.

Link to the Amazon store.

This is the stick I own. I've got 300 hours into mine and it's still going strong. My only complaint is that it is kind of light-weight so it slides in my lap sometimes, and the door housing the power cord is only held on with two small plastic nubs that seem to break very easily. A rubber band keeps the cord together just fine for me now though.

EDIT : I also suggest trying the program ce360
as that may work to read the input from your already purchased fightstick? I suppose if your PC doesn't recognize the stick at all then it won't help.

u/TheSeed2point0- · 10 pointsr/PS4

I bought one and mine broke within a month or two. The R1 button broke loose in the controller and does not function any more. I never dropped the controller or did anything abnormal to cause the issue. Plus I didn't like the R1/L1 and R2/L2 buttons so much.
That being said, I bought the Strikepack FPS Dominator extension thing that clicks on to your normal DS4 controller, but only has two triggers, one on each side. I really like this device, but it has some tricky nuances that make it not for everyone. It is strictly wired, and you have to unplug the USB or mini USB and plug it back in every time you turn on your controller/console, and same goes if you use a USB headset (the controller has to be plugged in first, then the headset). I play at a desk on a monitor, so it's not a big deal for me, but if you sit on a couch and play on a TV or similar setups, it might not be for you. But it's much cheaper at $40, so it is less of an investment with some of the same features.

u/Chromegene · 10 pointsr/CoDCompetitive

If you want a cheaper alternative to a custom controller, buy a standard DS4 and this:

u/somuchqq · 9 pointsr/dragonballfighterz

If you're playing on pad, just use any USB game controller you already have. The most important thing is that you think it's comfortable.

If you want personal anecdotes, I'm currently using a HORI Fighting Commander, and it's pretty nice.

u/ztj · 9 pointsr/ffxiv

Nobody's mentioned this but Sony started selling a dedicated dongle for the DS4 that has full feature support, including the headset audio. It's definitely the way to go. No muss, no fuss.

u/Dank_Diddy · 9 pointsr/PS4

I use the Power A controller charging station and it is terrific!

u/flatlinedisaster · 8 pointsr/PS4

HORI Tactical Assault Commander Pro (TAC Pro) KeyPad and Mouse Controller for PS4 and PS3 FPS Games Officially Licensed by Sony - PlayStation 4

u/miniboss1487 · 8 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Then look elsewhere. This stick is a modified real arcade pro which retails for $150. I personally have the same stick for my PS4 and it's worth it IMO. My only complaint are the buttons which you can easily swap out for Sanwa anyway.

This is a pretty good price for an arcade stick all things considered. Cheaper sticks tend to be pretty terrible quality.

u/Asahoshi · 8 pointsr/emulation
u/Left4Bread2 · 8 pointsr/StreetFighter

I absolutely adore my Hori Fighting Commander 4. Incredible pad. Lots of nifty features, PS4/PS3 compatible as well as PC, works out of the box, nice dpad, good buttons, all around solid and priced rather fairly.

u/deadringer28 · 7 pointsr/PSVR

If you are buying a stand the chargers are the same as they use the pins and not the USB port to charge.

I use this one for my Moves and it also charges two DS4s and holds my HMD and head[hones.


u/JokerSage · 7 pointsr/PSVR

I don't think any stand had been built with Aim by design, but I use this stand. There is a port in the back that can charge the Aim, and I dangle it where the headset was meant to be hung.

u/Barstool · 7 pointsr/dragonballfighterz

I don't know about that Madcatz one, but I love my Hori Fighting Commander.

u/darkcvc · 7 pointsr/Competitiveoverwatch

I play both ps4 and PC, and tried the keyboard and mouse on ps4. It is not even CLOSE to the same thing as using your PC, but some people can get good at it. I don't consider it a problem since a) you don't know for sure if they are using one or not, they could literally just be much more skilled at a controller than you and b) I bet you aren't complaining when they are on your team and not the enemy.

All the consoles have stated they are working on comparability with mouse and keyboard in game. Sony even sells its own licensed hardware to use a mouse and keyboard.

u/i3uu · 7 pointsr/FortniteCompetitive

They said they are partnering with razer for keyboard/mouse support and razer is going to make a special device to facilitate that. I'm really curious to see what it looks like! Maybe something like this?

u/jasonnjester · 7 pointsr/PS4

To add one to an existing controller, you can buy on of these contraptions that u/Azerius recommended:

or send it to a controller modding shop, there are several online, including Scuf.

there's also these crazy mutant-alien atrocities made by avenger that simulates this kind of functionality using levers lol:

if you think that thing is crazy, check out the xbox ones...

You could also frankenstein it by finding a mechanical button, mount it under the remote and solder it to the contacts that you want it to mimick

u/sideswiped · 7 pointsr/truegaming

>1) Incredible improvements to their motion/family gaming platform, integrated with console.

Not sure about incredible, but they have been making substantial upgrades to their eye camera. (e3 demo)

>2) A 2013 worthy network service

PS+ has been on the up and up. Moving to a pay for play multiplayer experience is also setting the bar higher (if you're expecting people to pay, it better be on par with XBL).

>3) Tablet/Smartphone integration

It will have Vita intergration and has been reported to have tablet/phone intergration too ([old source, really need to find one of the E3 mentions](

>4) Integration with other entertainment platforms like Television and Fantasy Football

Will have Netflix/Hulu/lovefilm/iplayer, but doubt you'll see anything super fancy (like cable box integration). I'd rather have a roku/Apple TV anyways, but I'm not a cable tv kind of guy.

u/_31415_ · 7 pointsr/PS4

Even so, I grabbed one of these cradles to easily store/charge my controllers when not in use. But even so, I've been able to do 8 hour sessions of Assassin's Creed and inFamous and the controllers were still fine afterwards. I don't think I'd need more time than that... I do need to get up and eat every now and again.

u/bensly · 7 pointsr/PS4

The officially licensed power-a charger. I was skeptical at first, but it really is amazing. Cheap on Amazon

u/Superrandy · 7 pointsr/PS4

The official Sony charger is not sold in america still. I got the Power A charger and it is fantastic. Could not recommend it enough. Love being able to have them docked and easily swap to another controller when one dies.

They're on sale on Amazon right now, and I know you can find them at Walmart as well.

u/Tackett79 · 7 pointsr/gaming

I have something like this for all my consoles. It changed my gaming experience

u/Drekken- · 7 pointsr/PS4

I bought this one. It is awesome.

u/jazdk4 · 7 pointsr/PS4

I have the "geltabz" brand ones. The gel part raises the height of the thumbstick up a mm or two but I have found the transition to be easy to adapt to. MUCH more durable than the original cover material on my DS4. I have 30+ hours on them and they seem to be a good replacement. Don't even notice them anymore.

u/EgoGrinder · 7 pointsr/PS4

Like anything there is no agreed upon "best".

There are GelTabz....


Butterfox (I had these for a while)

Off brand silicone...


You'd be better off watching YouTube reviews of these various products.

None of which might fit great now that the rubber on your controller is actually falling apart. Might require some hot glue or something else if you want them to stay in place.

A lot of people eventually switch to xbox style sticks, not just because the material doesn't fall apart but because it's actually a much better design. These compared to the DS4 sticks is night and day in terms of control and your thumb not sliding all over the place.

Not that hard to install. Hardest thing about taking the controller apart is getting the shell separated for the first time and the fact that the triggers and springs might fall out, so just work on a clean table where you'll be able to find the little springs. Watch videos on how to take it apart.

u/Jtacdf · 7 pointsr/FFXV

I would like to chime in on another better method to get AP afk/overnight. The method is 1 AP about every 7.5 seconds but there is a requirement to purchase a ps4 turbo controller to do it.
The original video above is by a Japanese person and I take no credit for finding this method, just trying it out.

Basically, you will need a ps4 controller that has turbo mode, one like the Hori FPS Plus.

Go do the basic level 5 training at camp.

  1. Hold turbo button and press R1, repeat it for a second time.
  2. Hold turbo button and press triangle, repeat it for a second time.
  3. Hold turbo button and press circle, repeat it for a second time.

    What this does is loop the training sequence over again with Noctis warp striking Gladios doing a 1 hit KO. I've tried it and managed to gain 3000+ AP over one night.
    A tip from me is to equip all your accessories with strength enhancement if you are unable to defeat him in a single hit.
u/teapot_RGB_color · 6 pointsr/Tekken

"Beginner" myself, learning on this

Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai

edit: oops, missed the note about xbox1 (I guess this would be the equivalent?)

u/JSGuin · 6 pointsr/Guiltygear

The xbox analog stick is possibly one of the worst input methods for direction out of all the common options. Even the awful 360 d-pad is better. I think you'll find improvement using anything else. If you want to keep the xbox controller, do yourself a favor and learn to use the dpad on it.

If you want a to get a better controller, for pad get the Hori Fighting Commander. If you want a stick, most people recommend the HRap4 Kai.

u/_Nibelheim_ · 6 pointsr/Fighters

PS4/PS3 & PC - I own this fightpad, many people say its the best fightpad on the market, I would concur.

XBONE/360 & PC

Fusion by PowerA is also releasing a wired fightpad this fall you may wanna check out.

u/icemanblues · 6 pointsr/StreetFighter

I've been told that the Hori fightpad is the best. It'll take a beating and keep on fighting.

u/RooeeZe · 6 pointsr/xboxone

Licensed by Sony for use on the Ps4, so in this regard its not cheating.

u/ahoy_mateyz · 6 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Sony DS4 adapter.
I have the DS4 kit that came with the controller and their Bluetooth adapter and it works good. We play from across the room, with drunkards in the middle and it still works well.

I tried the regular Bluetooth adapters, they are okay if really close, but not across the room.
Watch /r/buildapcsales the adapter and the kit goes on sale every now and then

u/bodaddyhurst · 6 pointsr/CruciblePlaybook

Collective Minds Strike Pack F.P.S. Dominator Controller Adapter with MODS & Paddles for PS4

u/willnotforget2 · 6 pointsr/PSVR

I have the collective minds headset and I love it.

If you have the Move controllers, definitely consider picking it up. I think it's totally worth it. Looks beautiful and keeps everything charged well. Quality plastic build.

u/wdschnick · 6 pointsr/Games

It basically works out to the Kinect 2.0 costs $100. That's the reason its cheaper. The Playstation camera is not packaged with the console and costs $59.

Xbone with Kinect 2.0: $499
PS4 with Camera: $458

u/Bgibbs · 6 pointsr/gaming

Camera is only $60, same as a controller. So if anything, that bundle should be $520.


u/SimpleJoint · 6 pointsr/PS4

I have and love this one.

POWER A DualShock 4 Controller Charging Station for PlayStation 4 by POWER A

u/Geo1234 · 6 pointsr/howto

You could buy replacement sticks like these
but you need to open the controller to replace them.

or you could order "grips" like these that slide over the old ones.

i just bought These for my ps4 controller and love them, but be warned they ship from the UK and it took like 2 weeks for them to get here.

u/lankeymarlon · 6 pointsr/PS4

The same started happening to my controllers, I bought these grips:

They cover the worn rubber and make the controllers look brand new again.

u/BobStraitFTW · 6 pointsr/PS4

Find some thumb grips for your controller. PS4 controllers are know to have the rubber strip right of off them. Here are the ones I use.

u/BionicSammich · 6 pointsr/xboxone

If you are stuck for a cable to use with a set of Astros or something, you can get one of the Turtle Beach PS4 chat cables I've linked below. I haven't got mine yet, but others say they work. They have the correct types of connectors for my A50s anyway (2.5mm with two black rings and 3.5mm with 3 black rings).

Amazon UK

Amazon USA

u/Corrinth · 5 pointsr/PS4

We already know that the PS4 Camera is sold separately.

The decision not to include it is how Sony was able to beat Microsoft's price by $100.

u/hhhealthy · 5 pointsr/PS4

Having a long micro usb cable to keep a wireless controller charged is a good call (though you need to keep your system in standby if that is where you charge from)

However, i would recommend getting a second controller (some good couch co-op games this gen) and a dock like this:
and then just swap controllers when one dies.

There are a bunch of free-to-play games now, so you might have things to play before you start paying $60 for AAA games (I got into warframe for a while, but it is confusing to start). Also, a lot of cheaper ($10-20) indies too.

Of course i'd recommend paying the $30-$40/yr for PS+ (it should hit $30 on black friday, but you can find $40 every now and then. Normal price is $50/yr) you probably got a free one month card with your console, keep an eye out for the cheaper sales (this subreddit seems good for that) subscription stack. So if you can go until november, grab a couple for cheap then.

PS+ includes a bunch of free games every month, and further discounts on others. Of course the PS4 games are there (2 per month) but often times the vita or PS3 games might be on multiple systems and are "cross buy" or buy once play on any system. Also, go on a computer and "buy" all of the available games each month. It doesn't cost anything and sometimes a PS4 version of the game comes out later and is "free" if you had grabbed the other version when it was available. (happened recently with hotline miami.)

The camera accessory isn't necessary yet, don't worry about it.

A vita is a pretty great system on it's own, but it is really great paired with a PS4. You can remote play the system, leaving the TV open for other folks. This can work on the same network, but also from far away too (I've done it between NYC and Chicago but there was some noticeable delay, great for some games, not great for others (shooters)).

There are a bunch of great subreddits for various games (or trophy hunting, or finding PSN friends) so check those out.

Personally i'm just playing destiny now, but there is already a huge catalog of great games. Just don't listen to the nobs who complain about all the indies. They are some of my favorite games and they certainly aren't slowing down big games like Destiny, but you hear about it a lot on subs like this.

u/JuanDaDon1 · 5 pointsr/PS4

Power A Dullshock Controller Charging Station

I purchased this charger from amazon a couple months back, awesome purchase, fair price, oem look.

u/titans856 · 5 pointsr/PS4

This ps4 charger is so worth it. I tried to do the cable thing for a while but hated it. Since it plugs in the bottom port and not the top, it's not finicky to get in. Pop it down to charge and push down to spring the controller up.

u/King_Icewind · 5 pointsr/PS4

Don't. Get this instead:

I have this, and as I and all the other positive reviewers can attest to; it's great. Looks good, performs well, super affordable, and is the best rated.

u/h98matty · 5 pointsr/PS4
u/WTFProoF · 5 pointsr/StreetFighter

Both of them are rather poor choices. The Mini even more than the Alpha (its buttons have absolutely no resemblance to actual arcade-buttons they just feel like over-sized controller buttons and the stick is also not good). If you want an arcade stick there is usually not much else to do than to bite the bullet and shell out some cash up front. I don't mean going for something ultra high-tier like the T.E.2+, the VLX Kuro or similar, but you'll have to invest at least 100 USD into something halfway decent.
I can recommend the "HORI R.A.P. V"-Line especially since the new Hayabusa buttons feel a lot closer to SANWAs than the old Kuro's did.
Other than that there's the Eightarc/Qanba Drone if you live in the US and are on PS4, or the Eightarc/Qanba Carbon if you're on PC (seems to be a rerelease of the Q1).
If you are in the EU there's the Venom Arcade Stick which is a very affordable and easily customizable stick (both buttons, stick and artwork are easy to replace).
All of those three are good choices for a player new to fight-sticks, but after some time you probably will want to replace the stick-unit and buttons with high-quality SANWA/Seimitsu/HORI parts at this point you probably will have spend the same amount of money on the initial stick+parts you would spend on one of the higher-tier sticks (8x2.50 USD for buttons + 20-25 USD for stick-unit will bump up the price of the Drone to roughly 135 USD and the Venom to 98 GBP) so you might as well go for a good one from the get go.

u/cdMyth · 5 pointsr/StreetFighter

In my opinion, the Madcatz TES+ is a great stick to get because it constantly goes on sale, is relatively easy to mod, but most importantly, has Sanwa parts already.

Originally released at $200, I got mine for $80 free shipping many months ago during a Newegg sale, and it has since gone on sale again for $100-$130 on different retailers. You just plug in and play; no need for driver installation. I have had no issues at all after about 200 hours of use.

For a beginner fighstick, and as someone who wanted Sanwa parts without having to mod a flimsy $50 entry level stick, I think this was a solid, solid choice of fightstick, which I can take to a local by just putting it in my backpack.

There are adapters that can will let you use XB1 controllers on PS4 but I don't know if the guitar controllers would be compatible

u/CaryKokujin · 5 pointsr/Games

If you're fine with a wired option then the same company makes a wired XB1 to PS4 converter. I've used it myself for shooters and haven't had any issues with it.

u/georgemcbay · 5 pointsr/DestinyTheGame

I know nothing about your particular muscular issues, so this may be of no help in your case, but the paddles on the Xbox Elite controller are much more ergonomically accessible than those on the SCUF in general:

I use an Xbox Elite controller on the PS4 myself simply because as someone who plays games on both platforms I prefer it to the DS4. I use it via this adapter, which works great:

Admittedly, having to pay about $200 for a solution ($150 for the Elite controller, $50 for the adapter) is not ideal and I do support Bungie just adding auto-sprint as an option to the game, just throwing the information about the Elite paddles out there as a possible option if they do drop the ball on this.

u/IIIMingLeeIII · 5 pointsr/INJUSTICE

I bought fightpad last year and it's a feature. I assign it to a button and it'd have the effect of pressing the button really quickly until I cancel it.

It's this one Hori Pad.

u/TheForlornGamer · 5 pointsr/Tekken

Just get the Fighting Commander. It's like a couple more dollars expensive than this one but it's much bigger and has a better D-pad altogether. They even have one for Xbox, too.

u/Night_Eye · 5 pointsr/dbfz

Using numpad notation: (5 = neutral, 6 is toward the opponent, 8 up, etc.)


IAD: 8 6 6 and 8 4 4 are pretty inefficient try:


IAD forward: 9->6 (wait a little in between, going back to neutral before 6. the cleaner/faster you get with this the closer to the ground you'll be when you dash - which is preferable because it gives less time for the opponent to react)


IAD backward: 7->4 (again neutral in between)


Other people have pointed out the shortcut for airdashing - I've always found those kinda hit or miss, so i prefer the above. Up to you though.


Long Jump: input: 2 8 (neutral) or 2 9 (forward) or 2 7 (backward)


TBH i don't really use this as much as I should(? idk i just play for fun and self-improvement, i'm not competitive), but it's just a practice thing - getting used to your controller. To practice, a good setup is to see if you can do a move/combo (or in this case jump) all the way from one side of the screen to the other (multiple times if it's a far-moving move) without messing up. IAD is the perfect example, start from one corner and IAD repeatedly until you get to the other corner. Do it until you can go the whole screen without missing the input. (don't just grind for it though, probably best to do this as a warm-up for 20 mins or less per day for a bit)


If you're open to getting a different controller (it's not required at all, but it may be more comfortable or more consistent for you, it is for me), I really like [this one for ps4]( and while i don't personally use the xbox variant [here it is]( Fightsticks are really nice too, but they're expensive.


Let me know if you have any other questions or if I didn't explain something properly, i'm happy to help.

u/skyrocketing · 5 pointsr/Overwatch

I also think it's kind of a gray area. Sony already officially licenses a KB+M peripheral for PS3/PS4 (Hori TAC), with an updated version coming in November. I wonder what are the rules regarding these when they are backed by Sony?

I'm buying that $40 PS4 controller thing with paddles... getting decent reviews. I just want the paddles, really. No interest in the other features (that seem a bit like cheating) the thing does.

If you are using the base dualshock

First link comes with built in turbo. Second link has paddles so you never take your thumb off of the aim or the movement stick in addition to turbo and other things I don't suggest you use. Third link allows for more precise aiming on a thumbstick by increasing the throw of your stick.

I see lots of people complaining about MKB on a console but after watching a video of someone using it just walking around - it looks like a pain in the ass. I understand you will have much more precise aiming and recoil control, but turning looks like balls.

u/deificperfection · 5 pointsr/StreetFighter

I got this from a recommendation when I asked reddit, it's a great stick. I haven't had a single issue with it; it's worked perfectly.

u/G0ffer · 5 pointsr/SoulCalibur

Dude save a bit extra and buy this

I've had this stick for nearly a year now and not a single issue with it. I've clocked 1,300 hours in Tekken with this thing so it's not like it was seldom use. I've been pounding it every single day.

If you go for a cheaper stick you are going to get either really bad build quality or really bad parts in the stick or both.

    HORI Fighting Edge

    Razer Panthera Evo

    Hori Rap 4 Kai

    The 'Hori Rap 4 Kai' used to be the most popular until the 'Qanba Obsidian' came along. From what I've seen, the Qanba Obsidian is the most popular stick right now. The 'Razer Panthera Evo' is an updated version of the 'Razer Panthera' and it's a solid stick from what I've read.

    Personally, I'm looking to get the 'Hori Fighting Edge' next because the button layout got me curious and the aluminum panel seems really nice.

    I have the Qanba Obsidian and Hori Rap 4 Kai so I can speak a little about those.

    >Qanba Obsidian

    Quite big in size and heavy. Definitely sturdy. Lots of room to rest your arms on. Custom art work replacement is easy. Same goes for replacing the buttons. The miscellaneous buttons up top are a little too small and fat fingering a button happens sometimes.

    >Hori Rap 4 Kai

    The size and weight lean towards average. It'll rest on your lap nicely and not feel overbearing. Custom art work replacement requires a little work because the default artwork has strong adhesive binding it to the steel plate inside. Replacing buttons is no problem. Miscellaneous buttons are on the right side underneath the right wing. You can also rebind buttons.

u/Butter_Is_Life · 5 pointsr/StreetFighter

The PS4 controller works just fine, too! Sticks/Pads/regular controllers all work fine with SFV, it really comes down to a matter of comfort, preference, and quality, the only thing that might be tricky is getting used to the button layouts and all. I've heard nothing but great things about the HORI Fighting Commander 4 if you'd prefer having all your attacks (light/medium/heavy each for kick and punch) on the face and a more defined D-Pad. :)

u/levelxplane · 5 pointsr/StreetFighter
u/renorosales · 5 pointsr/PS4

The Ps4 controller is probably the best controller Sony has ever made (despite the battery life). It won't take long for you to adjust to it, and the shoulder buttons are superior to the Xbox One's.

As for adapters, I don't believe any exist. The PS4 uses Bluetooth technology, while the Xbox uses radio.

EDIT: this looks interesting,

Collective Minds Strike Pack F.P.S. Dominator Controller Adapter with MODS & Paddles for PS4

u/Ninebreaker87 · 5 pointsr/FortNiteBR

Besides what OP said for remapping buttons, this is what I do.

I use one of these. Not too expensive ($40) adds 2 paddles to any regular ps4 controller. Been using it for over a year with no problems, feels great too. For Fortnite I've been using Combat Pro with right paddle set to X and left paddle for Square. Jumping around is easier this way imo.

u/xMd3w · 5 pointsr/Infinitewarfare

You can either switch to bumper jumper layout which is in your ingame options.

Or you can buy a controller from a company that puts buttons on the back. Personally i've used scuf, battlebeaver, and cinch and they dont last very long or the controller goes bad.

I've been using the ps4 strikepack now just for the jump paddles on the back. The great thing with this is you get everything from what the big companies offer for only $40. And if your controller goes bad you dont have to buy another $150-200 controller. You can just unhook it and put it on another $50 ps4 controller.

u/Manthes · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Personally, I prefer the Ps4 controller to the Xbox One, but that's just me.

Anyway, after doing some googling, I found this. I think that it allows you to play on the PS4 using the Xbox one controller, but I'm not completely sure on how it works. If you want to, though, I'd say look into it.

I think there's also a Xbox one styled PS4 controller out there somewhere, but I can't seem to find it.

u/gobongo · 4 pointsr/PS4

You can actually just use the Xbox Elite controller directly on the PS4 using an adapter like this:

There are other options like the ChronusMax, but the Brooks one is the one I use (can vouch for it, unlike the others) and it works really well, no noticeable lag. The only semi-complaints I have about it are that the Xbox One has no touchpad so you're boned for any game that requires that (though it does emulate a generic touchpad press if you press the 'select' button on the xbox, so for games like Destiny that use the touchpad as one big button it is fine) and also you have to use it wired via USB.

Would buy a real Sony pro controller if they made one of similar quality, just to get that 100% compatibility and wireless functionality...

u/jackjackjackncoke · 4 pointsr/Tekken

Arcade stick or pad is a preference. There's really no right answer. Personally, I love stick. I picked one up soon after I got into fighting games, because I loved the idea of them and I knew that I would love using one, and I haven't looked back since.

If you are curious about arcade sticks, just keep in mind that they take a few months to get used to. Some people pick it up faster than others, but for me it was a good month before I became accustom to it and then a handful more before it felt truly natural.

As for third-party pad alternatives, I know that Hori ( Fighting Commander 4 & Fighting Commander ) and MadCatz ( FightPad PRO ) both make controllers geared towards fighting games. Personally, that FightPad PRO looks bizarre to me.

u/NoChart · 4 pointsr/pcgaming

The Xbox d-pads are nearly all terrible for precise inputs. Grab up a controller that was made for fighting games, like these ones.

EDIT: I completely missed the word 'art' in the title. Oh well.

u/11fingerfreak · 4 pointsr/thedivision

No I actually know how to use it just fine. I’ve got scripts, access to a PC, had no issues with the coding and flashing. No technical issues. But it’s overkill. Most of what it can do better players already do anyway. And it feels like they do it better than the device does. There’s a lot you can script but why do any of that when you can just practice and achieve similar results? Then there’s input lag. I’ve seen videos of players running it with no problems. Me? I consistently had input lag on every game. When it wasn’t lagging it was fine, but it was 50/50 and that’s annoying enough to leave it shelved. Maybe I have too much EM interference but I’m not going to create a Faraday cage just to play a video game. If the key to doing a good part of what I’d want it for is just developing muscle memory and it’s laggy then that’s not enough to make me fall in love with it.

I also have the programmable Strike Pack. I like that device quite a bit although it lacks the flexibility of the CM. It also has less input lag than a CM, which is what made me feel the CM was clunky. What I don’t like is its poor fit around my controller. If it fit better I’d use it more often. Maybe it works better with older PS4 DS4s? But it’s interesting enough to tempt me to buy a Scuf or one of the other pro kits

If you’re looking for peripherals that will really give you an edge on console you’re better served by a Xim, a mechanical keyboard, a gaming mouse, and a large surface to use the mouse with. It won’t give you snap shotting or super quick zoom and shoot but it makes every shot more precise. That alone will put you ahead of even the best controller jockeys. The trade off is you need a desk or coffee table setup appropriately.


u/Entropius · 4 pointsr/titanfall

Also, an alternative to Evolved or Bumper Jumper that still allows you to maximize the movement system (like air strafing), is to get programable paddles on the bottom of your controller which enable you to use any controller setup you want.

Basically, maximizing the movement system requires you to be able to keep your thumbs on the control sticks without taking them off to jump or crouch/slide. Evolved, Bumper Jumper or controllers with paddles all permit that.

Some people buy expensive elite controllers but I went with this. It requires the controller be wired though, and you have to hold the PS4 button and activate it before starting up the game. But it was worth it for me since I can put jump on my left paddle and melee on my right panel (slide is my R3).

Edit: Also, wall running doesn't require you to look parallel to the wall. You can wall run and look perpendicular to it, strafing along the wall. You can also quickly wall jump up a corner. Sometimes I actually jump backwards into a corner and climb to the ceiling of a room while facing the center. Handy for defending a large room, people don't expect you to be hiding in the top corners.

Shipping costs on a flat rate box are actually $17.90 for the large flat rate box.

Now, let's compare with the market, shall we? This thread has a white PS4, with Destiny, The Last of Us remastered, and a controller for $350. See where the price drop to $250 would help you?

u/BubbScrubbWooWoo · 4 pointsr/Fighters

Try this:

Only £65, works with PS3/PS4/PC and is easily moddable. I bought one to test whether or not I could get used to a stick and ended up dropping in some Sanwa parts later once I'd adapted (which was super-easy to do).

Have a read of the reviews, people really seem to like them.

u/DontPoke · 4 pointsr/Fighters should be right for you

My recommendation: Venom fightstick with initial low budget, later upgraded with Sanwa parts from Arcadeworlduk

u/sonicbrkr · 4 pointsr/Guiltygear

The way I see it, it's all preference but if you want to buy a stick you should just do it (but don't feel pressured to do it). It's like the FPS scene where everyone asks what sensitivity the pros use. 9 out of 10 times they will say they use 800 mouse dpi with a low in game sensitivity. Sure there are crazy high sens. twitch pro players, but there is a reasoning behind getting used to lower sensitivity vs using high sensitivity. The lower the sensitivity, the more you move your arm and the more accurate you can be, and as long as you can 180 with one arm motion the lower the better.

I'm actually using the same logic in buying a stick. I HATE the d-pad (literally can't do the DP motion on it). I use the joy stick and while it works fine I'm not satisfied with my accuracy when it comes to the stricter inputs required for some combos. I want to try out something with higher kinetic motion so that, once I get used to it, there is less room to mess up (which sounds backwards actually). Also fight sticks are badass and I can afford one so why not.

I'm looking at these 2 sticks atm, Hori Real Arcade Pro and Mad Catz TE2. I kind of like the Hori since it's cheaper but it's not a big deal for me to go for the Mad Catz TE2 if it has something that over the Hori that I'm not seeing. Thoughts? Also, are there any other options out there I may be missing for a mid/high-end stick?

u/HalfCent · 4 pointsr/retrogaming

There are lots of companies still making quality sticks. If you use the term 'fightstick' you'll have better luck searching. Hori, Madcatz, and Qanba all have good sticks out there right now.

Here's an example of a quality stick.

u/WarMachine_Rhodes · 4 pointsr/shmups

Ah ok. Well if PC and ps4/ps3 are going to be mainly where you are going to be playing on then i would go for the Hrap 4 kai or Hrap V Hayabusa since they work ps3/ps4 and pc(xinput).

I have the qanba q1 that i swapped out with sanwa parts myself but it is the xbox 360 version and i use it for games/emulators on pc and it works with no issues.

I dont think any stick manufacturers will be making any ps4/ps3/360/xbox 1 compatible sticks anytime soon since fighting games arent getting many releases on xbox one.

u/ChampIDC · 4 pointsr/StreetFighter

I've never played with a PS3 or PS4 pad, but I'd recommend looking into the Hori Fighting Commander 4 as a fantastic value for $30 if you're only looking for a fighting game controller and don't need the analog sticks for other games. Setting it up to work on PC is very easy with x360ce.

u/AoF-Vagrant · 4 pointsr/Fighters

Looks horribly uncomfortable to me, and that d-pad looks like it'll only be good for zangief players. But maybe it'll turn out ok, we won't know for sure until it comes out in a few months.

u/StatSemita · 4 pointsr/dbfz

u/commiekaze · 3 pointsr/StreetFighter

You can just purchase a cheaper stick and mod it in the future. The Mayflash Stick is $40 and can be modded with Sanwa parts. The Venom Stick can be had for like $70 if you can find it and actually can be modded to be VERY good looking and with all the good parts. As mentioned in the other replies, the Hori sticks are constantly on sale as well both at stores and locally I'm sure. I always see them on Kijiji.

Yet ANOTHER alternative is a converter. The Brooke PS3 to PS4 Converter is restocked very frequently. Focus attack should be getting them soon as their stocks are likely just depleted from their holiday sale. This thing costs you $35 bucks and should have no lag issues from everything written about them on Shoryuken.

You can even buy a new PCB and dual mod your stick to work on whatever you want. Lots of solutions for you. You dont need to spend $200, especially if you already have a stick.

u/CaptainNeuro · 3 pointsr/Fighters

Amazon has this up

Damn good, especially for the price. If you REALLY want Sanwa or Seimitsu parts (though Hori's own aren't terrible by any means) it's a 5 minute swap job.

It does work on PC as well as PS3/4.

The only thing it's missing, in fact, is a headphone port, but that's not massive.

One thing about the RAP4 is the stick only sits about an inch above the platform, so there's not a ton of room for your fingers if your hands are really big. I have pretty big hands and its something I had to get used to.

This Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai keeps dropping in price on Amazon. It did it the other day and made it down to like 113 bucks or something, so keep your eye on it for a bit. I think it is pretty well regarded as a good stick, others may have more input than me.

This is the one I have it comes with a 4 way restriction plate, and I am modding it to an 8-gate tonight. That is the only thing I really wanted to change. Hori did a great job over all. I might eventually change it to Sanwa, but for now it works great.

u/thetok42 · 3 pointsr/StreetFighter

I use this one : the Hori FC4 Pro

I've been using it for almost 2 years now, and it is just beginning to show some signs of fatigue. So I bought another one. I just love this pad

I must note that I play Gief, both in SF5 and SF4 and that I am quite a butter churner (I killed a brand new Hori wireless Tekken5 stick in 2 days, a PDP MKX fightpad in a month, a madcatz SfxT in 2 weeks) :p

I never had problems with the rotating d-pad, nor the sensitivity switch (though I locked both as I wanted them day1, and never unlocked them since, so that may be why).

What I really like about this pad is the sensitivity setting and the 6 + 4 buttons. Of course you can only map 8 buttons in game, but then I have my 6 face buttons for LP/MP/HP and LK/MK/HK, on the left triggers I have PPP (lariat) and KKK (V-reversal) and on the right triggers HP and HK that I use only to activate Vtrigger. This makes it much easier to do things like c.LP os V-Trigger

If you’re decent with pad then stick with it, switching to stick won’t necessarily make you better. However, maybe check out the Hori Mini?

Get this, it's what Semij is using and I also have one so I can play with my friend on his ps4 and I have the ps4 one so my friends can play with their ps4 controllers on my xbox. I've had no issues and experienced no lag.

u/Zefirus · 3 pointsr/StreetFighter

How cheap is "cheap" to you?

This line is one of the best pads out there for SFV, and I don't personally consider it very expensive. You might try and find a used one on ebay or something if you need cheaper. Or one of the older gens. I personally use their older model.

u/skyguy25 · 3 pointsr/dragonballfighterz

They have actual game pad controller which you actually could benefit off of. There pretty legit, here's one so you have an idea of what I mean.

u/Abmahnanwalt · 3 pointsr/Roms

I can recommend anything from 8BitDo, especially the SNES ones.

Since a few months i use the HORI Fighting Commander for most retro systems up to PSX. It feels great + there's a PS version, if you prefer that.

u/calamityadvent · 3 pointsr/fightsticks

i used a hori fighting commander for a while before i finally got the scratch to invest in a stick. i really like it, and still use it every now and again just for fun. i also use it when i play emulators and some platformers.

the dpad is solid and face buttons are slightly oversized. i find it to be a really satisfying pad all around.

u/megatornadox · 3 pointsr/Fighters

Take a look on the Hori FC pad. Its a pad specific for figthing games that has an impressive dpad.

u/uncannyDINOZORD · 3 pointsr/PS4Deals

If you don't mind I'll give you some more thoughts. So first on fight sticks: They are in no way necessary to be competitive or in our case 'not bad' and they definitely are not for everyone. When I was heavy in dbfz I used this it is larger (I have larger hands) but it really helped me build up execution with the feedback and nice d-pad and its cheaper than almost all fight sticks. Since then though I have gone back to just the ps4 controller and don't see any major drop offs. I know this is a ps4 sub but if you have a switch you can usually find dbfz on sale on that and just use the joycons. Seasoned fighters will go crazy at that suggestion but its all about what works for you. I use the joycons for dbfz and will admit my execution is sloppier and I drop things I wouldn't on ps4 but I like to play on the go (mostly practice cause you want good connections when playing online).

Now on dbfz. Get it. Period. If you are a dragon ball fan get it. If you are new to fighters get it. If you want a great community to help you learn and has a crazy amount of resources get it. If you want to look cool with the lowest possible execution get it. If you grow into a monster at fighters and want to do some crazy stuff get it and probably all other fighters.

u/ManOnPh1r3 · 3 pointsr/Fighters

If your main goal is to get away from the 360 dpad, there are pads you can use to avoid the higher costs of stick.

Either the Hori fighting commander or a PS4 controller may solve your problem.

u/jus-do-it · 3 pointsr/StreetFighter

Are you in the States? Amazon has Fighting Commander Pros for $60, but they also have a newer model without the adjustable d-pad for $40:

u/SempaiSoStrong · 3 pointsr/StreetFighter

Oh gotta use the dpad! Other cheap option... HORI Fighting Commander for PlayStation 4 & 3 Officially Licensed by Sony - PlayStation 4

u/101shiki · 3 pointsr/salty

The Hori Fighting Commander seems quite popular among people who prefer pads that cater to fighting game players. I'm a stick player myself so I can't speak for it from experience, but I'm just throwing that out there. (You might be able to get a better deal elsewhere, as well.)

u/GerbilJuggler · 3 pointsr/Overwatch

Hmm. Just yesterday I made a couple of comments on this issue. On PS4 since there is an officially licensed keyboard and mouse controller. I haven't used it, so I don't know how accurate it is compared to an actual M+K or a Xim.

u/Chrisfand · 3 pointsr/pcgaming

You'll be playing against kb/m users on console as well.

The XIM4 is a thing on consoles and there's nothing MS or Sony can do about it. Heck, Sony has already officially licensed a kb/m adapter for FPS games as well.

u/crownpr1nce · 3 pointsr/Rainbow6

Does this include officially licensed products like

I know you can use a regular USB keyboard and mouse, but it's mostly for browsing and typing. I think that's what they are talking about. Don't think this is detected as keyboard and mouse.

u/DrLupo · 3 pointsr/DestinyTheGame

FYI - It's called the HORI TAC Pro - Link

It's pretty crap, right now. But it's officially licensed with Sony.

u/brain-eating-amoeba · 3 pointsr/pcgamingtechsupport


You got some choices.

I run a Nvidia card at home (970 gtx) I do not know the answers to AMD flavors... in fact, what I am about to throw at you might not be possible under AMD (I don't know).

Enable streaming through GeForce Experience. Then, create a VPN between your router and your laptop (or possibly the PC and laptop) and run software called 'MoonLight'.

Done and done.

(so you can follow along, a VPN extends your home network - placing your laptop on the same network as your PC! this is important as GeForce experience won't stream remotely)

However, this sucks balls. It requires a couple hours of configuration and you are kind of in the hospital.

Fuck that running.

Get one of these:

A PS4 bluetooth adapter.

Then subscribe to PSNOW.

This might shortcut everything:

u/juniorspank · 3 pointsr/PS4

I'd say get this because the DualShock 4 is a solid controller as is.

u/rocknroyal · 3 pointsr/PS4

They're good while they last, but they are super cheap and don't last very long. They also have terrible customer service from what I've had to deal with.

I would recommend getting the Collective Minds PS4 Strike Pack.

It plugs into your controller and basically turns it into a Scuf. It is definitely one of the cheapest options. It has the paddles and actually has some mods built in if you're into that kind of stuff. I don't use them, but it has rapid fire, drop shot, etc. The only down side to it is that you have to be plugged in all the time for it to work, but it comes with a very long cord.

u/Mennenth · 3 pointsr/SteamController

someone suggested this in the past; almost everyone agreed it would be a cramped mess if nothing was removed... and nothing should be removed otherwise its not a Steam Controller.

Have you considered something like this for your Steam Controller, or if you have the budget a ds4 with a strikepack?

u/smonty · 3 pointsr/PS4

This will let you remap the triggers. Might make some games easier to play for you without breaking the bank on one of those controllers.

They also have them at GameStop and Walmart.

u/SpaceMagic403 · 3 pointsr/CruciblePlaybook

Bumper moves jump to L1 I believe. (I Don't actually use bumper so I could be wrong, I run default with a button controller) So you can hit it while keeping your thumb on the joystick.

Strike pack adds to paddles to the back of your controller you can hit win your middle fingers. You can program them to whatever button you want. It simply clicks on to your controller.

u/Hydro_Slush · 3 pointsr/PS4

Easy setup. Tournament mode enabled default. Cheap and durable. Used with destiny for 100+ hours left paddle for jump and right paddle for slide.

u/rami_mardini · 3 pointsr/titanfall

Get this, heard about it a few days ago and immediately ordered one, it's basically a poor man's elite controller (just programmable paddles, which is what most people want scufs/elite controllers for)

u/DemonDeacon86 · 3 pointsr/CruciblePlaybook
Less expensive paddle pack, I've had a relatively seemless transition with mobility and at $40 it's a steal IMO. Could prib het this and a decent monitor. I'd still recommend monitor if u can't swing the $40 and use jumper or make L3 your X button to jump

u/Dimmet · 3 pointsr/PSVR

It's at a reasonable price at $30 atm, but it was for 24 dollars and had a 20% off coupon back in late Jan when I got it.

u/paynekiller666 · 3 pointsr/PSVR

I found a display stand at EB Games that holds my headset and also charges a DS4 + 2 Moves. It sounds like exactly what you are looking for.

Edit: Added link for you, found it on amazon

u/WannabeTesla · 3 pointsr/PSVR

This helps me a lot, even with non-VR. Becasue I have two controllers, when one is low I just exchange it with the other.

u/redhawkinferno · 3 pointsr/PSVR

Pretty sure I'm just gonna buy this.

u/Oscarbulldog1234 · 3 pointsr/PSVR
u/And_You_Like_It_Too · 3 pointsr/PS4

There’s also this pretty cool PSVR charging center for $35 that displays the PSVR, charges two Dualshock controllers and two Move controllers, and has a place to hang your headphones/headset.

The Move controller charge base that I have is the official Playstation one (I actually bought it to charge my DualShock controllers and didn’t know until I received it that they’d repurposed the old Move controller base by including a bit that plugs into your DS — they didn’t even bother changing the PS3 box haha). There are other options out there — this one is half the price of mine at $13.99 that looks like it can charge either the Moves or DualShock (but only two at once). Or this one that charges 2x DS and 2x Move Controller’s for $159.

Good luck with that cat; I feel your pain!!

u/ZambonieDrivor · 3 pointsr/PS4

PowerA Charging Station - 2 controllers, not little kid friendly, as it has a spring to load/unload the controller and kids will just pull it off. If the spring is in the incorrect position, it can be difficult to put the controller on charge.

Collective Minds PSVR Stand and Charging Station - 2 controllers, 2 move controllers, and 1 USB slot for headset or PSVR AIM controller.

PlayStation Platinum Headset - Went through 2 PS Gold headsets due to weak plastic frame. Platinums feel more sturdy. Haven't used too much to test durability. Great sound, but I am not an audiophobe.

PSVR AIM Controller - Got it bundled with Firewatch. Read that it felt good in hands. I thought it felt a little awkward, but definitely easy enough to use. Just have to get used to the button layout.

AC Infinity Fans - These are 80mm fans. It comes with 2 fans in parallel that are powered over USB. I don't use my PS4's USBs, because those are taken up with other accessories, so I have it attached to my surround sound receiver. One fan pulling air from the back of the Pro, and the other directing the fan out of the shelf area. I recommend these, as I've noticed the spin up on my Pro has significantly went down.

u/SecAdept · 3 pointsr/PSVR

Collective Mind Display... My wife doesn't like me leaving game stuff on the couch. I have no problem unplugging it, but it's also close enough to the PS4 that I could even put it on the stand without unplugging it... What sold me is I've never invested in a DS4 charging station (despite having 4 controllers)... The stand can charge both my moves and 2 PSVRs and even has another usb for something else... so it was a very convenient multipurpose purchase that displays the PSVR nicely:

u/Native411 · 3 pointsr/PSVR

I got this as a gift and it is by far the best stand / all in one psvr charging solution Ive seen.

Works really well.

u/rackham1207 · 3 pointsr/PSVR

I use this charge station:

My advice though would be that if you tend to gather dust like I do, place a sheet of sorts over the stand. It helps avoid gathering dust on the unit itself and the lenses.

u/GabeMamas · 3 pointsr/PS4

yes, this I use it for my Vr and it works wonderfully. I have the old move controllers btw. The whole stand part comes apart so you don't have to install the VR shelf if you don't want to.

u/Chris_Makewar · 3 pointsr/macgaming

OK, sounds good! I'll give it a shot. Just ordered from Amazon. Thanks man! A quick heads-up for anyone else who's interested because there's seems to be a little confusion. There are two models: this one: $48 (which says: [OLD MODEL] in the product name) & this one: $46. I got the latest model which, because of a discounting, is actually cheaper! lol

u/rouing · 3 pointsr/WritingPrompts

Expensive? I can get a keyboard and mouse for like 10$. Easy. And it can be wireless to. Keyboard and mouse is cheaper than a controller. If it wasn't intended for them to allow keyboard/mouse, why put the PS/2 drivers? Also, everyone has a computer so they all probably have a keyboard and mouse. Your points are not that convincing and stating that a kb+m combo is expensive kinda negates all credibility.

KB+M: 15$

Controller: 50$

That being said, you also lumped in actual modifications in there. There is a difference between plugging in a peripheral and actually modifying the code/peripheral to do things the manufacturer didn't intend for it to do. Keyboard and mouse is used on a computer and aimbots are still against rules on computer games so I don't see how an aimbot is relevant to an input peripheral. At all.

u/cdsk · 3 pointsr/GameDeals

FYI, it's $42.91 on Amazon. I personally wouldn't bother with a mail-in rebate to save $3.

u/Decipher · 3 pointsr/oculus

> now 15 dollar ps move[1] camera

It needs this one though.

u/Reliant · 3 pointsr/PS4
u/SlyyyTendencies · 3 pointsr/PS4

Not really right now. I did pick one up on amazon though because they are the cheapest I've ever seen them and I'm looking forward to the future (project morpheus, etc.)

u/TBoneTheOriginal · 3 pointsr/PS4

Once you toss in shipping, it's the same price as this beauty, which is infinitely better designed.

I know there's store pickup, but it's still worth the extra $4 to get the PowerA dock. It's amazing.

u/dgiangiulio228 · 3 pointsr/PS4

I've had my eye on this one and it's in my amazon wish list. I heard it's the best one out there and the reviews back it up.

POWER A DualShock 4 Controller Charging Station for PlayStation 4 by POWER A

u/cheapL3Y · 3 pointsr/PS4

Alternatively, pick up something like this. I picked up one of these a few weeks ago and love it. My controller is always charged because I just drop it on this thing when I'm done playing. It's not much more expensive than a Micro USB cable, and it's more convenient.

u/pr0adam · 3 pointsr/PS4

IMO drop the vertical stand, get a second remote and then purchase this :

Also no need to get a cooling fan either, just give your PS4 room on the side and back to breathe.

u/J0hnnyArs0n · 3 pointsr/PS4
u/Korpse223 · 3 pointsr/PS4

Most 120hz TV's are really 60hz displays with software that makes it look smoother. Many TV's come with a game mode that disables the software because it adds input lag. Also look out for input lag in TV's. Some brands tend to have a higher input lag but generally Sony, Samsung, LG, and Vizio are pretty good.

I'd definitely pick a 1080p display over a 720p one. Even though a few games like assassins creed unity output at 900p the ps4 will scale it up to 1080p and there is a very noticeable difference between 720p and 1080p.

If you have kids or need to be quiet at night pick up a pair of headphones. They can plug right into your controller and the games audio will go through them. If online will be your thing skip the headphones and pick up a headset. Sony's gold wireless headset is a pretty good one and should be on sale either right now or by Monday. No cooling fans will be necessary but make sure you have a spot set up that gives your ps4 enough room. If you're picking up a second controller consider picking up a charging station that plugs into an outlet. I have the nyko one and it has been great so far but I've also heard really good things about the power A one. If you're not getting a second controller don't worry about buying a dock. I don't own the PS camera or a sound bar/sorround sound system so I can't really help there.

Here's a few TV's that an input lag website recommends for gaming:

Power A charging dock:

Nyko charging dock:

Edit: Target has the gold wireless headset for $40. The deal is for in store only.

u/biezel · 3 pointsr/PS4

For DS4 charging, I definitely recommend picking up this dock and a second controller. Always have one charged, and plug it into the wall instead of taking up a USB port.

u/xCurlyxTopx · 3 pointsr/PS4

My controllers don't charge from a wall outlet but a portable charger or right from the ps4 works fine.

Other option is to purchase this dual EXT charger. It charges ps4 controllers from the bottom port. Only one I've been able to find anywhere

EXT dual port charger this is for so just change to your country

u/rube · 3 pointsr/PS4

Get one of these:

It's now just a normal habit for me to click the DS4 down onto the dock to charge it after every play.

u/Meckelvaney · 3 pointsr/PS4

I use these. Comes with two sets, convex and concave. Pretty grippy and they don't slide around. Amazon refunded me $60 for the faulty controller. Not sure what the turn around is for a replacement from Sony. Back before they acknowledged the issue, they told me 4-6 weeks. The Amazon refund hit my account an hour after talking to them.

Ships from the UK, so it took a few weeks to arrive for me in the US.

u/BarryBojangles · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

What's your favourite food?

u/TheEternal21 · 3 pointsr/PS4

They're cheap enough, where you can order different types and see which one works best. I ordered from 3 different places, and ended up using the ones I tried the first time:

But you really can't go wrong with any other ones you see on Amazon.

u/username2110 · 3 pointsr/PS4
u/stop_drop_rofl · 3 pointsr/PS4

No third party controllers, but you could try getting either new thumbsticks (Xbox One thumbsticks fit perfectly), or you could get a thumbstick cover.

Ive used GelTabz before and liked them. They add a good amount of gel thickness that should make clicking the joystick more pleasant.

Grip-It thumbstick covers are also considered very good.

u/ZebraMuffin · 3 pointsr/PS4

The reason why they won't replace them without proof of purchase is due to the possibility of them being stolen. They know they're still technically under warranty, they just don't want to risk it.

You can get covers, I've heard a lot about GelTabZ, and Grip-iT. I've also read of people ordering replacement sticks on eBay, but I have no experience with that.

u/ArboristDan · 3 pointsr/PS4

I purchased these:

Now I found my R3/L3 buttons did not return fully to their resting position (I could pull on them and then they would release fully, try it yours may be the same...) so these covers would rub a little when fully extended. So I removed the original rubber from the grip and added 1 (very important 1) drop of superglue then applied this grip by turning it inside out and flipping it over the plastic analog sticks. It no longer rubs and is actually better then the original.

u/_deffer_ · 3 pointsr/xboxone

My echoing only resolved after buying a turtle beach PS4 chat wire (as dumb as that sounds) on the recommendation of others on this sub.

This is the one I bought:

It's expensive on amazon because people know this fixes the astro issue, but you can probably find one cheaper somewhere else or non-TB branded.

u/Moonlord_ · 3 pointsr/xboxone

Yes, I use the same headset with the Xbox one. You will need the MS chat adapter along with the 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter that it comes with.

Turtle beach also makes a PS4 chat cable that you can use to connect directly to the chat adapter without having to use the separate 2.5 to 3.5 adapter. Don't worry about the ps4 branding. It's the same cable needed for the xb1. This isn't mandatory but it just makes for a cleaner setup than using the adapter with your existing cable plus you don't need the controls on the middle of the cable anymore. Here is a link for it on Amazon:

u/MrFlemz · 3 pointsr/Gamingcirclejerk

I have a couple of friends that play a lot of fighting games. I can ask them.

Edit: They only recommended a stick and it was this one

u/Anakaris7 · 3 pointsr/StreetFighter

I also got this and fitted a full Sanwa mod for an extra £40. There are plenty of guides and YouTube videos etc to help you out.

Works out £80-£100 cheaper than a TE. Personally I'm very happy with it.

u/ndjo · 2 pointsr/hardwareswap

Shipping is pretty much free for most a lot of online retailers, and amazon offers free one-day delivery for $47 right now. With tax, it'll be right around $50~$51. Do you do 1 day shipping? link

And like I said, it's offered for $40 pretty much on a monthly basis. I bought mine for $40 free shipping no tax.

Product Description:

COME one, COME all, yes that's right, COME over here fast! Today we are giving the gamer deep inside you the chance to play the latest games in the most thrilling ways!

What I am holding here in my hand is my BIG, BLACK STOCK of a controller called a DualShock 4. Why should you get excited for a video game controller? It's BIG, it's BLACK, and it VIBRATES. Of course, you also have the choice of experiencing your thrills from a WHITE controller. Who cares about the color, as long as the RIDE is heart racing right?

The DualShock 4 is made of quality fine material, but don't let that stop you from playing as ROUGH as you want! Touch it and feel just how HARD it is. It's so hard it could crack open any oyster and liberate so many pearls that you could receive a pearl necklace eventually!

How you play a game can definitely lead this big bad brute into behaving the way you want to. Play a game in a calm manner and this baby will vibrate in tune to your rhythm. However, play an extremely exciting and rough game like Grand Theft Auto and this devil will shower your entire body with sweet vibrations!

Everything about the DualShock 4's been upgraded from the previous version in the name of efficiency and excitement!

Simply insert a 3.5mm audio line into this controller's little hole and you can enjoy all the moans and screams from your game directly from your headphones! Nothing is better than hearing the whispers and excitement directly delivered to your ears!

Simply press the correct buttons and you'll be able to take videos or snapshots of your "sessions" together and show it to interested parties who might decide to join in on your fun! You'll have a room full of big black and white vibrating handles of fun!

Have you COME to the conclusion yet of getting yourself a DualShock 4?

Your pleasure, is my pleasure! ;)

u/kimaro · 2 pointsr/gaming

>I'd have thought a decent gaming machine would cost vastly more than a console and I'd have to buy a

Not true. This guy's proves it =

>I'd have to buy a desk and shit to shove the monitor and keyboard and all that bollocks on

Well, if you want to sit on your couch and just skip using a keyboard you can do that...

Also how fucking big do you think a PC has to be? Like.. Seriously how big? Because you are so full off yourself. Also, you still need to buy a controller for your console (I know one comes with) but you can literally buy a keyboard and mouse for 5$

Last time I checked you still need to buy a TV to use it for your console. So why are you telling me that a PC needs a monitor but a console doesnt need a TV?

Here let's do some comparisons.

400$ PS4.

14.99$ TV unit (I took the absolute cheapest one...)

Sofa or sitting on the floor? Alright here you go. A chair 29.99$ (still, cheapest one I could find)

You want some games? Hm, let's take some games that are new and are on both PC and PS4. Let's say 4 games.

Dying Light 59.99$

GTA 5 59.99$

Evolve 59.99$

Far Cry 4 59.99$

Do you want to play with a buddy? Another controller. 53.33$

And lastly. A TV that is in 1080p 156.59$ (the cheapest one I could find that was NEW. NO Used ones or refurbished!)

Total price 894.86$

Also, do you want to play online? 1 month is 9.99$, 3months is 17.99$ and 12months is 49.99$

Now, let's do our 350$ PC. So PC

Do you want to use it on a TV unit or on a desk? You choose. (you could technically do this on the console too but a desk is more expensive.) Let's go with desk for your convinience so 79.99$

Same here, couch or a chair? I'll go with a chair 19.99$

And now on games.

So, since Dying Light hasnt released the price for the american price I'll pick the european price and change it to the american currency (This will make it more expensive than usually) EU price: 49.99€ converted to dollars 59.07$

Since steam has not given out a price of GTA V on steam I'll pick it from (it will most likely be sold for 49.99$) but here you go. 55.64$

LoL, I am actually kind of happy right now, it's not that usual that europeans get the game cheaper than americans do but we do on Evolve, anyway. Here you go 59.99$

Far Cry 4 59.99$

Do you want to play with a friend? A controller. I couldnt be bothered looking for a cheaper one. Here you go 9.99$

And lastly, A TV/Monitor 156.59$

Total: 851,25$

Now, yes. It is very close but my argument will always stand, it will be cheaper on steam. With steam sales, humble bundles ( seriously it's 4 games for 1$... Altho I never pay below average because I am not a scumbag, but still) and websites like you will ALWAYS find games that are cheaper, for an example here you go with Far Cry 4 for 34.64$

u/clsuburbs · 2 pointsr/PS4

u/nolliethebum · 2 pointsr/PS4

Amazon US regularly has the PS Camera for $40-$45 (currently ~$44) rather than the regular $59.99 retail price - I picked one up when it dropped to under $40 a few months ago.

u/another_programmer · 2 pointsr/gaming

I just don't believe they would bundle it as being $100, and then sell it for $60. If anything, the bundle was actually $450, or if it was at $500 it included some game meant for the camera.

u/LukeLC · 2 pointsr/playstation

Playstation Camera, two Move controllers, and games that support them. The last bit is where you'll run into issues, as really there aren't any. PSVR will use them, Dreams will use them, and LittleBigPlanet 3 has limited uses for them, but other than that I honestly can't think of anything.

EDIT: And in case you're wondering, you do NOT need this.

u/HonestAtheist21 · 2 pointsr/PS4

You think you don't need a charging station, until you've actually used one. It's much more convenient to simply set your controller down into a cradle, than screw around with a tiny USB plug, that always happens to be in the wrong orientation.

To the OP - this is the charging station I'm using. Had no issues with it for 6 months now:

u/claygriffith01 · 2 pointsr/PS4

Get the PowerA Dual charging station. It uses the other port to charge (on the bottom).

Here's a link

u/skwerlbat · 2 pointsr/PS4

I would recommend picking up the cradle style Dualshock 4 charger. Its pretty convenient, especially if you have 2 controllers. I found it on Amazon for $22. I think its pretty good value. heres a link.

u/Nodrod · 2 pointsr/PS4

You sure you're not confused with this one? I bought it on launch day too and it was the only stand charger they had. The box and product is very similar to official sony stand posted by the thread OP.

u/Bill_Brasky01 · 2 pointsr/PS4

I use this and love it. Perhaps the usb port is messed up but this will work? If not, just return it.

u/MunkyUTK · 2 pointsr/PS4

The one I use here uses an external supply. It also charges the controllers from the bottom port (not the USB port), which I find to be a little more reliable (maybe my USB cable is just bad, I dunno). Anyway, for the price its a nice charger. Keeps my spare charged up so its ready to go when I need it.

u/AtariXL · 2 pointsr/PS4

Grab a charging station like this. The DualShock has a tiny battery and the docking station makes it a little easier to deal with.

I would also recommend a pair of earbuds with a built in mic. I have a high end Turtle Beach headset, but find myself using earbuds almost exclusively because they're more convenient, and the sound quality will be equal to or better than P11.

I agree with the hard drive upgrade too. I went with a 1TB SSHD on launch day, but now that a 2TB option is available, I would seriously consider that too.

u/Bocaprowler · 2 pointsr/PS4

Why bother with that, it's a gamble (many people end up breaking their controllers) and spend the money on that? Get a 2nd controller when you find it on sale and a charger (DS4 Charging Station). It's what I have done since day 1, one controller goes low, it goes on the charger and I pick up the second one.

u/willydearborn · 2 pointsr/PS4
u/bosoxlover12 · 2 pointsr/PS4

I have this charging dock, that works through the bottom of the controller and doesn't need access to the micro-USB on top.

Would absolutely recommend getting

u/travmak · 2 pointsr/PS4

The Insignia DS4 charger from Best Buy. It's trash. It was the only one they had when I bought my PS4. I ordered the PowerA shortly after. It works a lot better.

u/rhoq · 2 pointsr/promos

I've got [this] ( It's officially licensed and I highly recommend it.

u/OG_Willikers · 2 pointsr/PS4

It still uses a bit of power and the fans still move and push a bit of air while "resting." I shut mine down every time, it really doesn't take any longer for it to start from off than from resting as far as I can tell. It could be handy for charging the controller though. I chose to buy this charging station for $20 and I love it.

u/HeyCarpy · 2 pointsr/PS4

Do yourself a huge favour and pick up the Power A charging station for your second controller. Functional AND cosmetic. I love mine. You won't regret it, trust me.

u/lachie929 · 2 pointsr/PS4
u/MrAkai · 2 pointsr/PS4

Not sure what's wrong (I often use my phone charger to charge the DS4) but it might be worth investing in a charging dock like the Power A since you made a nice shelf for it all.

u/TellMeLies · 2 pointsr/PS4

Can't speak to if the PS4 is worth it with the XB1, I only have the PS4 but I am happy with the purchase overall.

Everyone here will recommend The Last of Us. The main story is a lot of fun and got a lot of positive reviews from the community and critics. I am addicted to the multi-player component; it has a bit of a learning curve but it is one of the most intense online experiences I have had personally.

Another exclusive you might try is InFAMOUS: Second Son. I had trouble getting into it because your character feels incredibly OP with little challenge. There are a few really well scripted boss battles though that will provide a decent challenge. Overall I would recommend it if you can get it on sale.

Other than games I would suggest buying a controller charging stand. The DS4 doesn't have the best battery life, ultimate frustration is that it doesn't turn itself off or into any kind of sleep mode when you are using Netflix etc. This is the one I have:

It works well, and is very compact. It feels a bit cheap but I think it would stand up to quite a bit of abuse if you are worried. I have dropped mine a few times with no problems.

Don't bother with the camera unless you plan on recording yourself gaming for youtube or something. No real support for it in terms of games.

Will edit if I think of anything else.

u/BruceFlea478 · 2 pointsr/PS4

I have a broken ribbon in one of my controller as well. I just use a charger that charges from the bottom (where you plug in a headset) and it works fine. The only downside is the light at no longer works.

I have 2 of these and never had an issue. Hope you get it worked out.

u/necrochaos · 2 pointsr/PS4

The Sony Gold Wireless Headset. It's amazing. One of the best headsets out there for the PS4. Make sure to download the companion app from the PSN Store. I believe the black set is $80. The white set still sells for $100. But watch for this item to appear on Amazon's Warehouse page. I got the whites refurbished for $85. They match my white PS4 nicely.

I use this controller charger. Works really well. Both of my controllers are always ready for me.

u/BlueLemming97 · 2 pointsr/3DS

If there are such things like a grip that just goes over top the analogue, like these, then maybe you could glue a PS3 stick cover over it.. might be pretty thick when it's all done though. Then you could just take it off before closing your 3DS.

u/Eights-DPT · 2 pointsr/PS4

u/wishful_cynic · 2 pointsr/PS4


The link above is to Amazon, and your headset is listed. I bought mine through Turtle Beach's site at launch, but I didn't see it quickly after I googled it and I'm working so I'll let you find it cheaper! But $10 is still a great deal to avoid buying a new headset.

u/Mashable_Pixels · 2 pointsr/xboxone

> I want the full experience. Best sound, best build quality etc.

Take a look at this setup Sennheiser G4ME ONE, Astro Mixamp Pro, headset adapter and a 2.5 to 3.5 chat cable and there is also a setup guide for it all on Astro gaming's forum.

I made on post on Reddit the other day asking Astro A40 + Mixamp pro users, What's your opinion about the headset and would you recommend it?, Most defiantly worth a read.

u/gr2020 · 2 pointsr/AstroGaming

I had this issue with Gen 1's. For me, it turned out the issue was the crappy cable they include to connect the headset to the controller, or the little 2.5 to 3.5 adapter. What I ended up doing was buy this cable:

It says the cable is for PS4, but it's exactly what I used to connect between my old A50 and my controller. The echo problem was solved completely.

I know it sounds ridiculous that a cable could fix it, and of course YMMV, but it finally solved the problem for me 100% of the time.

I actually sent in my chat adapter with that cord.. got an adapter back with a new adapter but not the cord we need, so i called them and they sent me 6 more of them without the wire... soooo finally after few months ( 2 days ago) I found a wire but keep in my I have a mixamp (astro a40).

Also, you can use this

2.5 to 3.5 stereo adapter

u/Red_Knightmare · 2 pointsr/xboxone

Oh, I know your issue. I had this back when I first bought my X1.

Your setup is right, but the talkback cables turtle beach headsets use have different poles than regular 2.5/3.5 cables. I don't know the specifics, but they're easily found if you google it.

You need the specific proprietary cable that goes from the headset to the controller. Specifically this one:

I had the same issue and couldn't fix it until I used this cable rather than a standard one. I tried multiple cables, and I couldn't get chat to go through (but I could still hear people) until I put this one in.

u/Cerrenade · 2 pointsr/Twitch

Does the robotic sound happen while you are in a PS4 voice chat with your friends? This happens to me as well and goes away after a short amount of time, but it seems to happen with all sorts of headsets, so I've heard, from others and my own experiences.

I currently use my Astro A40s with the MixAmp Pro, my ElGato HD60, as well as a Blue Snowball Mic. In order for my party chat to hear me on the PS4, I had to buy this, which plugs from the MixAmp Pro to the bottom of your controller (I use my Astros for PS4 party chat since the mic quality isn't the best, and my Blue Snowball as my Desktop mic for my stream).

u/v1ndictiv3_ · 2 pointsr/xboxone

for the 598's you'll need a y splitter (headphones/mic port y splitter) and you'll plug the headphones into the headphone port, mic into mic port and run a 3.5mm to 2.5mm cable (like this one: from the controller into the mixamp where it says controller.

For the a40's you just plug in the headphones and then run that same 3.5mm to 2.5mm cable from the controller to the port where it says controller on the mixamp.

Depends on how custom you want it to be, if you really want to try your hands on stick and want an easily modable one, get a venom

Its like 70 bucks and you can change almost everyting from it.

u/Chemist_God · 2 pointsr/Tekken

You're going to be upset when you get it and it's the size of a Lunchable snack pack and your hands barley sit on the case and it slides around from being so light.

Those 2 sticks parts will end up messing up as quick as a few weeks and you'll be spending more money replacing them than spending few extra bucks to get a nice size stick with quality parts.

You'll be stuck with good parts after you spend $60 to replace them in a tiny stick case.

You'll see how awful it is, then you will go to youtube and look at madcatz tournament edition 2 sticks and see how big they are on peoples laps and wish you bought a standard size stick.

u/Healmeplox · 2 pointsr/Tekken

If you're interested in the TE2 stick but want to also save a few bucks , the TES sticks are basically the same thing internally but without the quick opening front panel. It can still be removed but just with an allen wrench. Amazon Link

What makes it great is that it's basically just an enclosure for Japanese arcade parts, so the important bits weren't produced by madcatz.

u/ShockwaveMTME · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace


Most Fighting Games can deal with Direct Input devices like Sticks...unless they do not like the Unreal Engine based games.

Madcatz has own drivers for the PC too.

Hori should work right out of the box too.

No idea for the Razer Atrox or the Etokki and Qanba.

Edit: A few examples

u/KwyjiboTheGringo · 2 pointsr/Fighters

I wouldn't get a cheap one because they come with cheap parts. that won't feel as good and will start to fail after a while And some of them are even hard to mod.

You can get a Madcatz TES+ on sale for $150 right now.

I bought a madcatz stick and I haven't had the same luck with mine :T I try to be generally careful with my sticks, but this one had the start button give up on me after about 3-4 months and the lower middle button not register inputs from time to time. it's this one for those who're curious

edit: meanwhile my razer atrox which I was sceptic about is still holding strong despite having been put through a lot more abuse. No marketing intended, just kind of impressed that it's still holding out since it was used by some friends who were... less then careful with it

u/HIZLO · 2 pointsr/PS4

Hey bud, I felt the same way after using the Dual Shock 4 myself. I found these work great and give the controller a tad bit of width. The rear grip makes finger placement easy and personally I have zero hand cramps when they are on.

Second option was getting the Xbox One controller to work on PS4. I had purchased the the TitanOne but the PS4 has some kind of check system and the device would hiccup every 7 to 10 mins. It became a real pain in the ass having to hook up extra stuff in order to get it to work.

A new device came out called Gam3Gear Brook Design. This usb adapter works like the TitanOne but with zero issues! Check this out...

Brook Design:

Hope this helps! Good luck.

u/AoD_Oni-Joe · 2 pointsr/dragonballfighterz

I got it about 2 weeks ago and its 0 lag
just make sure whenever ps4 has an system update, that you check the products website to see if theres a firmware update for it.

u/lerptyderp · 2 pointsr/spelunky

That would definitely affect my play.(although I think that the Dpads are a bit different as well)
In my experience ps controller are convex on top as opposed to the concave joysticks which your thumb kinda fits into on the xb controllers.

There is a company called mayflash which makes adapters for playing with controllers from different consoles.

Here’s one
Gam3Gear Brook Xbox One Controller to PS4 Console Super Converter Gaming Adapter with Keychain

It’s a bit pricy and only works wired, but might be worth it for you. There are also probably other options

u/WingImpulse · 2 pointsr/xboxone

Razer Atrox( $200
Very simple to customize btw


Hori RAP V. Kai( $150

A simple way to make these work on PS4 is using a X1 to PS4 converters.

Ratchet and Clank( Seriously best looking game ever)
Persona 5


u/Spockrocket · 2 pointsr/PS4

If you want to use an actual stick, I'd say it's probably not worth getting the Alpha. Miniature sticks such as the Alpha and the Hori Fighting Stick Mini tend to be uncomfortable to use for extended periods of time, and are made using lower quality parts than full-size sticks. If you want a stick, the cheapest one I'd recommend would probably be the Qanba Carbon. I own one and it's a fairly nice stick for beginners. Technically it's not a PS4 controller, but Street Fighter 5 and a few other games support it in Legacy Mode. Check to see if the other fighting games you have support Legacy controllers. If they do, this is a great option for your price range. Otherwise, your next best bet is probably the Qanba Drone.

If you want a pad, the revamped fightpad pro is a good choice. I've never used one but the new model has gotten significantly better reviews than the problematic previous model. Personally I went with the Hori FC4, but the price has gone significantly up since that model isn't being manufactured anymore. The newer model is only $40 though, so that fits in your budget.

u/JustLeeBelmont · 2 pointsr/snes

If you happen to have the Snes mini controllers you could pair them with this adapter.

I'm personally not a fan of the Buffalo USB pad as the dpad is raised higher than an original snes controller which feels worse to me. The edges on it are unreasonably sharp for some odd reason so if you happen to play games with fast inputs (fighting games) your thumb is absolutely going to feel the difference.

If you're in the market for a good dpad controller, in general, I can't recommend the hori fighting commander enough. It's incredibly comfortable and has compatibility with a lot of games right out the gate.


u/sip_sigh_repeat · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

The version of the fighting commander you linked is inferior to the newer version here.

The FC4 that you linked has an adjustable dpad which lead to reliability problems only a few months in for some people. the newer model doesn't have these problems and is very solid.

u/thinksammich_ · 2 pointsr/Tekken

Have you ever had a stick? I have a Razer Panthera sitting on my desk collecting dust. It was great for SV5, but for Tekken I feel like the Hori Fighting Commander is superior.

u/Tek_Nicale · 2 pointsr/Fighters

Sorry if I wasn't clear but I meant more the newer HORI FC since it seems to be the cheapest good option.

u/suckasurprise · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

It used to be available on, they have a new version of it though. Here's the link

u/Noughiphiet · 2 pointsr/Fighters

Well the mini controller won't break your wallet at $30 ($20 on amazon right now). Unfortunately It would seem that it is PS4 only. The original PS3 Fighting Commanders are rare and if they suffer from the same issues as I experienced then I would avoid it. I just realized that they redesigned the PS4/3 Fighting Commander is the original design they used for the Hori Mini PS4 controller. So I would totally grab one new! ($40 no less)

I would highly recommend learning an arcade stick in the future as there seems to be much purchasing options for you. I did indeed come from an Arcade background. Well over 20 years ago my home console was a SEGA Saturn; so I had that perfect 6 button controller for games like Darkstalkers and Street Fighter Alpha (the saturn arcade stick is kind of a piece of shit). When the Dreamcast came out along with that lackluster controller for Fighting Games and I switch to the Hori/Agetec arcade stick. When the original Xbox came out I switched back to controller after trying every single Fight Stick that came out on it (pelican, Nuby, etc) and hated every single one of them.

Street Fighter 4 came out and Madcatz and Hori stepped up the game with making high quality and more importantly; available arcade sticks, so I never looked back.

u/wingmasterjr · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

IIRC a diamond ibuki player plays on keyboard so its not impossible.

My advice to you is to go into training mode and start practicing the motions. Quarter circle, Half circle, Z motion(Dp), etc etc until you feel comfortable doing them consistently. It will take time but eventually you will get it down.

But if you find it awkward still you can get a Hori pad for about $40 right now OR if stick is more of your thing you can get a Hori mini for about $40.

Remember that these will not make you any better at the game. It will take some time to get execution and timings down all while learning the basics of the game.


u/brainfraud · 2 pointsr/mvci

I use the Hori Fight Commander for PS4 I do not like analog sticks or the DS4.

If I'm going to play on a controller and not a stick I'll use the Dpad other wise if you use analog just use an arcade stick but thats my personal opinion.

u/eDRoaCH · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

I owned that pad, and didn't like it. The completely circle dad made it impossible for me to use (no tactile feedback of thumb location) they since made a new version that has a cross, so if you buy I definitely recommend that one.

However I prefer the Hori FC4 it just feels better in my hands, the madcaz is too angular for me.

You sacrifice an analog stick (IMO something only giefs really care about) and the top buttons are a bit muddier, but they're more comfortable and I rarely use them. The big bonus is the price difference, it's way cheaper than even a dual shock.

u/fuzeebear · 2 pointsr/MvC3

This one is $10 cheaper, no sense in OP getting the one that supports 360+One if he only has 360

Although if it was me, I would just get the Hori Fighting Commander for $39

u/Eight-Six-Four · 2 pointsr/MortalKombat

Not true.

I've got this controller and it will repeatedly press any of the face buttons, bumpers, or triggers for me. You can set it to hold the button down or you can set it to rapidly press it. So, if I want to go afk, I can set it to rapidly press cross and it will just keep inputting "X, X, X, X, X, X, X, X, X" for as long as the controller is on.

It was released yesterday in the EU, it is going to be [released in a few days in the US]( USB-Wireless-Adaptor/dp/B01KWLKKQU/). I've got one, but so far it's pretty useless because there aren't any games who support the adaptor yet.

u/Kefro · 2 pointsr/hardwareswap

If you are looking for wireless connectivity on your PC, just buy a cheap Bluetooth USB dongle. They go around ~$10. I would only assume that's the reason why they stopped producing the adaptor.

Amazon has them for ~$50

u/Mr_pessimister · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

I'd say you have a few options.

  1. Try a different USB cable. I use a DS4 on my PC and I had a cable that would "wobble" and cause disconnect issues when holding the controller in certain ways.

  2. If it is the controller and not the cable then you could try to replace it with something like this. There are plenty of youtube tutorials. Doesn't seem too hard.

  3. You could get a Bluetooth dongle if your PC does not already support bt. I have used one, but in my experience where I live I get a lot of interference and the controller latency can spike if it's not right next to the receiver so it wasn't an option for me.

  4. You could get one of these.

    While more pricey I have read that both the range and reliability of the signal are head and shoulders above a generic bluetooth adapter.

    Best of luck!

    P.S. I missed this when reading your post, but /u/Jamaicancoconut is correct. Dualshock 4 works directly with RL without the need for DS4Windwos/Input Mapper/360CE/etc.
u/delnoob · 2 pointsr/skyrim

yep, you can do it two different ways. easiest is to directly plug it into the pc or you can use a bluetooth dongle if you want to retain the wireless function (i'll link below). after you have it connected (give it a few sec as it may need to do some auto install thing to work properly), open steam and in the top right corner you'll see a controller. click that and it should open "big picture mode" which will basically turn your computer into a console. from there you can select the game you want to play from your library, buy new ones, search the web, etc.

Sonys official dongle (only one dongle per controller, but will retain audio connection)

universal donge (will connect multiple controllers, but will not retain audio through the controller)

Of course.

One of those is connected the regular way under Ubuntu(the first 2 minutes of this video show how exactly), that's the one used for the PCSX2.

The other one is connected through a DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor by passing the entire device to a Windows VM running USFIV (I think using only a bluetooth dongle in the same way would work as well, but I honestly won't bet on Windows management of bluetooth devices).

u/tglodjo · 2 pointsr/PS4Mods

I started using the Collective Minds PS4 Strike Pack before Christmas for competitive Overwatch and have been really pleased with it. I also switched out the sticks to XB1 elite sticks and got some foam to put around them to increase the tension. I've been super happy with the setup.

For reference, I have a Battle Beavers Custom controller with two rear buttons, smart triggers, and increased thumb stick tension. The only better component on my "officially" modded controller are the smart triggers, but you can get close enough with DIY stop mods (just search YouTube).

All this to say, I prefer my BBC controller, but if I hadn't already bought it, I would definitely stick with the collective minds strike pack and a few simple DIY mods for under $50.

Edit: I realize I didn't say this, but the Strike Pack has reprogrammable rear buttons. It also has other electronic mods like rapid fire that I do not use. Here's a link:

People might shit on me here for sounding like a shill in a moment but I promise you I've got no affiliations with either of the products I will mention here. As much as that may mean nothing to you, it's the truth and I wanted to at least say it.

And I went on that ramble above because the first thing I'm going to recommend to you is buying KontrolFreaks, QCQ for left and a comfortable "ultra" for the right. These will let you control the sticks with more space to move, you will be able to make smaller adjustments without a (significant) loss to your ability to make fast ones.

Second, buy a "Strike Pack F.P.S", it will add easily assignable paddles to your controller as well as turning it into an actual wired control with actual wired controller input latency (plugging in a USB normally does not make it wired, it's still working wirelessly and simply also charging). Note though that this thing has "mod" capability (as far as I can tell, straight up cheats), do not even think about using them, you could probably get banned for it. Just leave it in "tournament mode" and all "mods" are 100% disabled and it just uses the paddles. I play puppeteer and you should too, if you don't the following recommendation wont apply to you, but you'll get the idea. You're going to set the left paddle to X (jump) and the right paddle to Δ (swap weapons). This is going to open some doors for you, now you can aim while you're jumping in the air (actually aim), this is going to let you get around the map faster with better movement/jumps as well as do things like hopping above entrances and blasting the cap of other players. It's also going to let you swap weapons while you are aiming in preparation to use them as well as while sliding, this is vital to shotgunning/snipping effectively. The goal here is that the only time your fingers leave the sticks is if aiming is literally not important at all, like when reloading or emoting. You can totally go buy a custom controller if you want to, but when it breaks it's broken and you either have to replace the whole thing or get it sent in for repair, with this attachment though, if it dies it's not expensive to replace (and it's well built imo, I'd imagine some kind of internal failure is more likely than paddle failure) and if your controller dies you can just pop it off and put it on the new one. To me it seems like the cheaper and better option, but if you really like custom controllers or have tons of cash maybe that's the better choice, your call, either way you need paddles.

Next, put your sensitivity on at least 7, I would put it to 8. Relax, relax, now that you've got your control freaks on this will feel more like 5 or 6 (or 7-8 if you jumped to 10). I play on 10 with them, but I never would without them. This is going to let you have that mobility you need to improve, it'll stop you from breaking your neck every time a shotgun ape jumps over you, and with your better ability to actually use all angles of the stick you'll be able to track these things. It is going to take you time to adjust to this, you've got new weird sticks, your sensitivity is bumped, and you've moved buttons you used to use your thumb for. It's gonna be wack, it's gonna make you want to return everything, just hold on and take a breath. Now take another, because over the next couple weeks as you relearn how to play you'll find yourself pulling moves and thinking, "huh, never could have done that before." It will be worth it. Oh and make sure you have traction on your boots, I'm sure (based on your sensitivity) that you hate this perk, but now is the time to learn to use it because it opens the door for your improvement and the reason you hate it is because you haven't stepped through that door.

This is going to give you a higher mechanical skill cap, you will, on paper, be able to do more and play better. The next few weeks of practice are about rising to meet that cap, it really won't take all that long and the new mechanical skill cap will be worth it. The rest after that is learning to take what you already have ("My strengths are map/radar/audio awareness, quick reactions and outsmarting the opponent") and implementing those strengths better in the game now that you have a larger tool box (faster/constant aiming and mobility), that will take longer, that's the infinite grind, but at least you won't be handicapped by your controls.

EDIT: If you think paddles are not critical, go ask any PC player if they would willingly take their hand off of their mouse every single time they wanted to jump/reload/swap weapons. You will be laughed out of the room. Paddles alleviate most of that issue, don't sleep on them.

u/lDamianos · 2 pointsr/consoles

Not natively, no.

You can buy a cronusmax however. The cronusmax full package comes with a usb to 3.5mm jack adapter, which you could then use your headset directly with the playstation as well. You won't be able to use the headset through the elite controller. You will also need a compatible usb hub to stop the controller from reconnecting every 8 minutes, which isn't terrible to deal with unless you're in a competitive setting. The reconnect is quick and relatively non-invasive, but it will drop all inputs for a split second.

Overall, it's an investment that would cost more than a PS4 controller itself. You're looking at 80 for the cronus + 10 for the hub.If I were you I'd just buy the strike pack to attach to your normal ps4 controller if you really need paddles that bad.

u/Goosebeans · 2 pointsr/CruciblePlaybook

The FPS Dominator is an awesome choice. Only problem I have with it is the included cable, which with the shroud can be problematic. I had a couple of the cables fail on me until I took my Dremel to the shroud and shaved it off so I could use a higher quality cable. Served me well. I played around with other controllers and they all seem to come with their own host of issues. Ultimately I landed on the C40 TR despite its issues so I could play with the offset analogs on it, and muck around with increased tension in the right stick more easily (no soldering required).

u/rockstar2012 · 2 pointsr/forhonor

If you don't want to drop 140+ bucks on a scuff you can always get this instead.

u/Zoze13 · 2 pointsr/scufgaming

Consider a Strikepack instead. You add it to your standard PS4 remote to give you paddles. It's only $40. Amazon sells out quickly so I got mine at a local GameStop. Paddles are easy to program and can be mapped to any other button on the controller. I use it for the options button to check the map quickly in MWR. It has a lot of other fancy features I haven't used. One downside, it requires a wired connection.

I owned a scuff for a year before it broke. Loved the product but refuse to re-buy anything for $200+ that breaks easily. I've been using strike pack for a few months now and actually prefer it to a scuff. I get to keep using my standard PS4 remote and can feel the better quality over the scuff.

If you want aswell you could check out this strike pack dominator which is a modpack that you just plug onto your controller and its way cheaper. They have a tourney mode where only the paddles work so you dont have to use mods at all and its wayy cheaper than a scuf.

u/zac115 · 2 pointsr/titanfall

You can actually buy it on Amazon. Now I will warn you the bumper pack comes with mods built in. But the reason I use it is because it requires you to have it connected to your Playstation I said that there is zero lag time between the controller and the system itself and it was the only one I could find on Amazon. But using mods are for no skill players.

u/snb_eng · 2 pointsr/FortNiteBR
u/Morkaii · 2 pointsr/CruciblePlaybook

I have tried the Xbox Elite and the Scuf Vantage. I MUCH prefer the standard DS4 controller with a Strike Pack attachment.

The Elite was very nice, but the joysticks are a lot looser than the DS4. For someone like me who likes to snipe, it proved insurmountable. However, the quality of the controller is excellent and I use it with my Xbox. The resistance that the DS4 joysticks provide gives you a greater degree of control and accuracy in my opinion.

I pre-ordered the new Scuf Vantage thinking it would be the answer. Unfortunately, the quality is noticeably subpar and cheap. The sticks are better than the Elite, but not as good as a stock DS4. The upper paddles are difficult to reach to the point where I gave up on even using them. I returned it after a week of trying to make it work. Not at all worth the price, IMO.

This is a bo4 modded controller Bo4 xbox controller

There is also accessories that can basically mod the controller for prices as low as 27 on Amazon. (I’ve seen them at walmart for 30. Xbox strikepack
The strikerpack can use rapid fire and jitter and I’m pretty sure it has Autorun.

Ps4 options are also the strike pack. Ps4 strikepack

Or another modded controller. Ps4

If you want a modded elite/scuf they are also possible to get. Elite Controller

this one isn’t exactly a scuf but it has paddles

Ps don’t hate cuz I have a modded controller, I only use mine for the paddles and in custom games to mess with buddies.

This is the only sub-100 bucks stick I played with that didnt suck:

And building your own stick is barely cheaper if you are not living in the US cause of all that shipping if you want quality parts.

u/MySoulStillBurns · 2 pointsr/Fighters

If you live in Europe get the PS4 Venom arcade stick. It's very moddable and works natively with the PS4. You wont have to pay the inflated prices either because it's made for Europe and not the USA-

I'm American and I have one of these and I love it. It's very easy to swap the buttons and joystick to a different brand. I have Sanwas in mine, and you can upgrade it similarly while staying close to $100 for overall cost.

u/syph0 · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter
u/tattybojan9les · 2 pointsr/Fighters

Arcade world uk sell decent sticks and parts, generally Qanba are a pretty good way to go. There's a good deal on the Q4 which is a a little over budget but honestly its not a bad deal for a new stick.

Here's a Qanba if you're only looking to use it only on pc Be careful as it doesn't use Sanwa or Seimitsu parts, so the reliability of the controls may be a cause for concern.

Here's a Hori stick thats a little over budget but very much will suffice. Just be sure to use it in PS3 mode if you're on PC.

Otherwise look on ebay for second hand sticks, look for Hori and some Madcatz TEs.

If you're just getting into it there's a few budget minded sticks that you can go for like the fightstick alpha or the Hori mini. I wouldn't recommend them if you really want to get into fighting games, but if you get the for under £40 its not a bad thing to invest in to see if you're interested.

u/Shougil · 2 pointsr/dragonballfighterz

I bought HRAP 4 Kai and I don't see myself switching anytime soon (it's considered low-mid range price, there are also more expensive). It was on discount on only 2 days ago for 99 euros.

u/frozonous · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

I used a MCZ SE for most of SF4 so upgraded to a Hori RAP4 for SFV, I love it, no issues so far, works great on PS4 and PC, parts are good (though I replaced the hayabusa joystick with a sanwa due to preference) and it's a reasonable price compared to the TEs.

Just a warning though, it has less room below the buttons for your hands, I personally like this, but for people who have used TEs it might seem restrictive

u/ilovedonuts · 2 pointsr/Fighters

i've heard nothing but good things about the hori real arcade pro 4 kai (EU139.39) (link below).
i did the same and learned with a hori fight stick mini which was an awesome experience, although awkward to get used to the position at first, still using it to this day but got a pro 4 kai on the way.
the mini fight stick did require some 3rd party software (joy2key) to run, but very easy to set up, and very responsive.

hope this helps!

I don't have much expercience with fight sticks either but I have bought this one just for Tekken 7 (and because playing with a pad for a while hurts my hands a lot). The fight stick got a really good reputation and it's also compatible with PC if you plan to get T7 on Steam. I also made this thread a few weeks ago where I asked for fighting stick recommendations. Hopefully it will help you with your decision :)

u/Trance_UK · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

The new models of the Hori RAP 4 Kai should all have Hayabusa stick & Hayabusa buttons with their updated PCBs which has an XInput mode in addition to PS3/PS4 mode and reduced input lag. I ordered one off Amazon last week and it's all there.

Personally I prefer the Hayabusa lever + buttons to Sanwas. The stick movements feel smoother to me than my Sanwa sticks, the difference in resistance is noticeable and I find it easier to instant air dash and whatnot.

The Hayabusa buttons have noticeably shorter travel distance compared to the Sanwas, it's kinda like comparing Cherry Red MX to Speed switches.

I also very much like that the stick + buttons are slightly further spaced from each other, it makes the whole experience feel less cramped.

Looking at the listing on - it looks identical to the listing on the UK site (notice how on the last 3 pictures the stick has a little grey strip along the right hand side with a legend of what buttons are under that right hand side ledge, my RAP 4 Kai has this and is the updated model!).

I'd pull the trigger on a RAP 4 Kai, if you got a PS3/PS4/PC switch & matte finish buttons you're good to go.

In regards to warranty - I thought it was illegal for companies to refuse warranty because of stickers?

Edit - Forgot to mention the gate:

I would say stick with stock parts as long as you can before trying out things like different gates, be patient with getting used to the controller. Building muscle memory will take time!

I remember when I first started out I tried all sorts of nonsense like stiffer springs, octo gates, bigger actuators, hitbox etc. but in the end I wound up on a stock RAP 4 Kai and all I really needed to do was find a comfortable setup and git gud.

On the plus side I can now switch between pad/stick/hitbox/keyboard at will and it'll take only a few minutes to get combos down haha. I'm still tempted by the hitbox dark side but for now unless I can get a specific style of custom hitbox made I'll probably just use this stick now.

u/MeleeTheMalay · 2 pointsr/Tekken

I don't live in the UK but a quick search turned this up:

A RAP 4 Kai for 88.92 pounds including free shipping to UK. Wouldn't this be better? Literally a better stick for the same price.

Also my thoughts are that unless you're looking for some very specific modifications that even better off-the-shelf sticks (Rap 4 Kai, Razer Panthera, Qanba Obsidian etc) don't come with, modding a stick overall doesn't seem to be worth it. Most of the money you save from the initial price difference is re-invested into the modding process, and what little left of the remaining savings doesn't seem to be worth the extra effort and time needed to learn and complete the modding process. Not to mention the fact that cheaper fightsticks often feature lower quality casings as well.

Think about it this way: good fightsticks are already so expensive for the average gamer so like any other manufacturer of products, they'd want to strike a good balance between profits for themselves and affordability for consumers in other to increase the Return-On-Investment for their IP (which is essentially coming up with the design of the fightsticks).

If it was economically feasible to sell it for that much cheaper, they'd have done it already.

u/I__Am__Not__A_Robot · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

HORI is probably just assuming the Nintendo Switch will have some fighting games. After all, that's just a previously-released product, the HORI Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai, adapted for the Switch.

u/ianorsomething · 2 pointsr/UnderNightInBirth

The sooner you get into the game, the sooner you can learn it and figure out of you actually like it. It's probably cheaper now than it will be when UNICLR comes out, and the game will change, but not so drastically that your time in UNIST will have been totally wasted.

As for sticks, the Hori Rap 4 Kai sounds like what you want.

u/WumFan64 · 2 pointsr/dragonballfighterz

I cannot attest to the quality of Mayflash fight sticks. If you're looking at something like this then I'll say I bought something very similar for the PS2, I'm talking probably the same stick even, and the build quality was very poor. The buttons specifically were so stiff they were hard to press. I bought it and a converter to play a Wii fighting game, but the stick's quality bummed me out enough to quit. If I had played the game as much as I wanted, maybe the buttons would have loosened up... or maybe I would have accidentally broken the thing.

However a stick like that would work on PC. I mean, it would plug in, and the buttons and stick would function. It'd just be a cheap, potentially crappy/easily broken stick. I bought my PS2 stick like 6 years ago so maybe the build quality is better now.

If you want my recommendatiom, I'd buy a regular pad like the PS3/PS4 pad or 360/One pad. The idea that fighting games are best played on sticks is a myth; many pro players in every game use pad and dominate. Many theorize that pads are actually superior overall to sticks. In fact, the penultimate controller for fighters seems to be something called a "Hit Box" which replaces the stick entirely with buttons (very similar to a keyboard at that point). What it boils down to is using something comfortable... which I worry the mayflash stick won't be.

Anyways, I'd recommend a pad because they're just as good as sticks, if not better, and they can be used for multiple types of games. The best pad users seem to like the PS3 style pad, which would be the one I recommend since its the cheapest with a decent dpad... though, personally, when I use pad, I use the analog sticks. If you REALLY want a stick, the only quality ones I know of are in the $150 range... stuff like this. It's possible to buy a cheapo stick and upgrade it with nicer parts, and its not necessarily all that hard, but that's a lot of hoops to jump through to play DBZ.

u/JoshRawrrs1 · 2 pointsr/GiftofGames

Sorry bro, it seemed to have sold yesterday for the prime price of $5.

It retails for $140 lol. But then again, my bro said to donate or sell it cheap so we have no control over the price since everything at the yardsale was $10 or lower.

That is the RAP4.

I'll ask around for you to see if anyone have a fight stick or pad near me and willing to donate bro.

u/Competitive_Bench · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

Aw damn, the SoulCalibur VI RAP N went back up in price. The PS4 version was $106 several days ago the last time I checked on Amazon and there was a good seller on eBay that sold it for around $85 to $95 which is where I got it from. Anyway, I do second this. It's my first fightstick and it's a blast.

The regular RAP N is priced lower than the SoulCalibur VI version on Amazon at $126.97 right now to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the SoulCalibur VI RAP N being $158.99.

If you're okay with used fightsticks, there is a seller, a pawn shop apparently with good reviews, selling the PS4 version of the Hori Tekken 7 RAP N for $99.

Personally, I wouldn't buy it not because it's used, but because of the price. From what I gathered, the Tekken 7 version is more of a collector's edition. It's usually more expensive than the regular RAP N and the SoulCalibur VI which because it was attached to a less popular game, is sold for less than the regular RAP N where except for not have these rubber mats under them, the same thing the Tekken 7 version lacks if I recall correctly, it's the same fightstick with a different art and case color. That is just me, though, if you really want a RAP N, like the Tekken 7 stock art, and are okay with the price, then sure.

Another "used" fightstick is the Rap 4 Kai which was mentioned by another user on Amazon. Amazon Warehouse currently has a "like new" offer for the Rap 4 Kai and it's $116.85. I've had good experiences with Amazon Warehouse, but there have been some misses like they sent me the wrong items. Not all that bad since you can just send it back and get a refund.

Someone else posted a thread about how the Razer Panthera Evo is on sale on their site and their eBay store for $140. The one issue with the Panthera Evo is that it can be difficult to install a Korean lever. You did not mention any 3D fighters like Dead or Alive, SoulCalibur, or Tekken, so it probably won't matter much, but in the future if you ever get into those, especially Tekken, or you really want to try out a Korean lever, then it could be a pain to install.

There's a user selling the Qanba Obsidian here. I do not want to imply the user is a bad person, but do be careful. The thread's title was not changed, but they're asking for $125 now.

Hey all! I'm looking to get a fight stick for SFV, but I'm not too sure what I should be getting. I'm willing to spend ~$150 on it, and this stick is what my buddies recommended to me, and it seems to be my best choice from the searching I've done. Are there better options or is this a good option that I should go for?

u/Keravnos · 2 pointsr/Fighters

With the PCB, five 24mm buttons, eight 30mm buttons, joystick, and USB wires/connector you're over $100 (that's without a touchpad, balltop, shaft sleeve, extra wires for the home/options/share/R2/R3 buttons, PCB harness, and shipping).

Then there's materials and time spent on a decent case - $20 to $30 I think would be reasonable.

In the end I can guarantee that you will save at most $10 if you built this from scratch. And that's if you spend almost nothing on the case.

I'm not trying to stop you from making you're own stick - I've done it and loved every minute. But honestly if saving money is the biggest concern, I think buying a prebuilt is the way to go. There's a reason that independent stick builders charge insane amounts of money for a custom project.

u/Rotjenn · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

Those extra 2 buttons are for all punches and all kicks. You don't actually need them, as you can press all three buttons at once instead, but if you find that difficult to do, those buttons are useful for that.
You can also map other things to those buttons, like throws or whatever, if you want.

Honestly, learning to play with just 6 buttons from the get-go is pretty neat.

My only gripe with that stick is the size and weight of it. You'll want it to rest firmly on your lap/desk when you play. It should never ever move when you do sudden inputs.

I have this arcade stick, and the only gripe I had with that was the Kuro buttons on it, which I have switched out with Sanwa buttons. I recommend it, but know that it will take you a while to get used to a stick. You'll suck for days if not weeks.

u/HoTs_DoTs · 2 pointsr/Tekken

I'm assuming you already own an arcade stick with a Korean stick so if you know how to install PCBs you can look into using this one which is made for ps3/ps4 they also have adapters as well if you don't know how to install PCBs. If you don't have a korean stick then what'd you want is this it's a Korean stick and for a few more dollars you get some cable which allows you to plug it into any arcade stick that uses Japanese sticks. I don't know much about the venom stick just that people normally get it because it's cheaper since it uses generic parts but amazon has the hori kai stick on sale right now which is considered a good arcade stick some say the buttons suck others have no problem I was originally going to get it before I found the pcb I mentioned which I'll probably put inside my stick

u/criticalchocolate · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

> no problem, i also played melee for about a year and then transitioned to this game, this is my first sf game. I love melee but i can honestly say i haven't looked back

buy a fight commander 4, aside the default ps4 controller imo its the best pad to play on, good features , good quality and the 6 button layout is perfect for SF games. also the controller is not TOO expensive

heres a less feature filled on, but equally good

If you want a quick lowdown on whats not on the cheaper model is, its missing the repositional d-pad as well as the dpad diagonal sensitivity adjuster (this helps for more rigid controls or looser controls for easier circular motions). The shape is also slightly different but thats not a biggy :)

If you enjoy using a pad and wanna switch it up you can try and get one of these. I have no experience with these in particular, however I have heard very good things about the hori fc4.

u/thatHermit · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

Practice and take breaks often. Your brain needs time to digest what it just learned. With time, it'll come naturally. I like to compare it to MMO's in a way. The same way you would grind for gear or whatever, you grind your combos until your really proficient at it. Eventually you'll get so good that even new characters will be a quick learning experience (execution wise, not footsie wise).

Don't let anyone tell you you can't do it on a controller. I can name like 10 pro's of the top of my head that prove that wrong.

I do however, recommend a controller with all the buttons on the face like this one

But it's not necessary. Use whatever you're comfortable with.

u/AnBearX · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

For anyone looking for a ps4 pad to play with or use for dual modding, the Hori FC4 is down to 35 bucks on amazon: Link.

Link to my original post

I guess that even though the post was getting upvotes, as it is a thing one needs to play Street Fighter games at a price that people would surely like to know about, the mods determined it be relegated to the daily thread where it may fall through the cracks for some readers. Ah well. Hopefully anyone interested in a useful deal will happen to see this in the next eleven hours.

Hope the mods will consider allowing people to post peripheral deals in the future, as I don't think they come by often enough to clog the main feed. Just my opinion, of course.

u/imlouisrussell · 2 pointsr/killerinstinct

Xbox One or PC? With reference to the MKX pad, I'm assuming Xbox One. If PC, the Hori Fighting Commander 4 is the one to beat:

HORI Fighting Commander 4 Controller for PlayStation 4/3

As far as Fight Sticks go, it's hard to beat anything Hori for price and the Hayabusa Stick and Kuro buttons are truly great:

HORI Real Arcade Pro.V Kai Fighting Stick for Xbox One, Xbox 360, & Windows PC

If you're a fan of Sanwa Denshi parts instead, I personally bought an old, MadCatz Tournament Xbox 360 fight stick on Craigslist for $60 (may be able to find some for less) and installed the Brooks Universal PCB in it. Most of the installation is insanely easy unless you choose to solder the present USB cable to the board like I did. Since this PCB is Universal, it works on all platforms (save Wii U):

Hope this helps!

u/CkPhX · 2 pointsr/Fighters

It's okay. I sometimes fuck myself up by hitting the middle of button of the DS Pad (cause I fat finger it), but other than that it's just like any other pad. I'm hoping they port PS3 TE sticks for the PS4 SF5, but I'm not holding my breath. PS: Battery life blows on the DS4.

For setting it up at events, it's not complicated as long as people disconnect the DS4 that they connected. Pretty much someone else can make it super complicated for everyone else.

Edit: If you're looking for a alternative pad you could maybe look into something like this

It was on sale the other day for $29, so you could either get it asap or wait for it to go on sale again.

Like, in Infamous: Second Son, you have to shake the controller and move it around to spray graffiti. Its so cool. But here is the controller that feels like the Xbox one:

EDIT: Also, I literally sold my new PS4 and bought a Pro like a month after and the difference even on a non 4K tv is worth the extra hundo. The FPS improvements are night and day in some games.

u/turdlop · 2 pointsr/PS4

I use the $50 Hori FPS Plus. The right and left triggers behave strangely in some games, both GTA and Red Dead I use dualshock 4 because the aiming and shooting doesn't work properly on the Hori. But other than that it's easily my favorite 3rd party controller that I've used.

u/LadBooboo · 2 pointsr/DestinyTheGame

If you really want this controller exists for ps4 and has the Xbox button layout. It's wired though.

u/adescuentechable · 2 pointsr/PS4

Actually, Hori makes one, but it isn't cheaper than the DS4. And it's missing the headphone port, lightbar, vibration, motion sensor, and it's not wireless.

u/thepipesarecall · 2 pointsr/MvC3

I cannot recommend this controller enough. The turbo feature allows for easy button mashing during supers, it's very lightweight, has almost identical ergonomics to a 360 controller, and the bumpers/triggers are both just contoured buttons with very light action required.

Also, for fps, there's a small secondary trigger recessed into the left grip that, when pressed, tightens the sensitivity quite a bit for more precise aiming.

Absolutely love this controller, well worth the money.

u/MissedHerPink · 2 pointsr/PS4

Really eh. If the controller's all you like, get the Horipad FPS plus.

I prefer the xbox controller, but I don't hate the PS4 controller. It still feels nice imo, and has way better features. But if I could only recommend one console, I'd go with PS4 just because of all the exclusive titles that xbox lacks, especially if you're not into Halo or Gears.

u/Peacelovefleshbones · 2 pointsr/PS4

Only thing meatier than a Dualshock 4 is an Xbox controller. Luckily Hori makes a PS4 controller that looks like an Xbox controller.

u/failstrongly · 2 pointsr/playstation

This is the only thing I've seen around.

u/BibbledyJello · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

This. I also am looking for a fightstick. Even though it's cheap, don't buy this.

u/StarlessMirage · 2 pointsr/Overwatch

To sum up what have been said by others, I think you could go with a setup like this one:

  • a left-handed or ambidextrous mouse with several programmable buttons where you can place abilities or call-outs. Here's a couple ones: SteelSeries Sensei 310 - Razer Naga - BenQ Zowie FK1 (some of them aren't made for FPS so you might wanna try them first)

  • a fragpedal for crouching and jumping

  • for WASD, if you can't find the joystick things Nicholas is talking about another solution could be to get an arcade stick and use joytokey to remap the analog joystick to WASD keys. There are small and relatively cheap ones like this one. These analog sticks have the advantage of giving a very clear feel of the direction you're pressing through distinct "clicks". You might also be able to find standalone joysticks with a similar feel.
u/8BitDsx · 2 pointsr/PS4

I literally just bought myself the Hori Fight Stick Mini 4. This is also tempting.. Maybe I'll buy it for guests, or something. Thanks for this post!

u/Namr2000 · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

I currently own a Madcatz fightstick TE for the xbox 360 and I use it on PC. I love it but I'm currently worried about attending tournaments for SFV. I was thinking about picking up this stick so I can play on PS4s. I will continue to use the TE at home and only use the hori mini just as a tournament stick and a player 2 stick. My question is will it be too hard to switch between the two (obviously this new stick will be no where near the quality of the TE) or will it be fine?

u/Stiegelsauce · 2 pointsr/MortalKombat

If you are just starting out for cheap you can get a hori fight stick mini for about $50.

if you want a large one you really cant go wrong with a Qanba drone.

if its your first stick it may a take a few days to get used to, but i personally use the mini when i travel to a friends house and a larger stick at home.

u/wil2dscrub · 2 pointsr/Kappa

You mean like this new Hori FS Mini 4 for the PS4 that will be released on December 14? it's going for $40 on pre-order.

I wonder how easy that stick is to mod though. I have a MadCatz CE and that thing was easy to mod. The old Hori FS EX2 for the Xbox 360 was a pain to mod.

u/conorcelt · 2 pointsr/Rainbow6


These have a better review than the OG SCUF for under $40, used $30. I don't think paddles are a problem anymore now that drop shotting and crouch spam has been severely nerfed. A few months ago, I would put paddles in the same category as MnK, but at this point, paddles don't give much of an advantage. I can do everything just as quickly with a stock Dualshock 4 as someone can do with paddles.


You can compete just fine with someone who uses paddles, as the only advantage given to paddles has now been taken away. You can't as easily compete with someone who can flick 270 degrees from your teammate's head to your head in a quarter second with little to no recoil.

u/booselordius · 2 pointsr/FortniteCompetitive

Well you connect the strike pack to the micro USB port that’s on the controller. Then you have to use the controller hard wired. Here’s the link

Collective Minds Strike Pack F.P.S. Dominator Controller Adapter with MODS & Paddles for PS4strike pack

As long as you don’t drop your controller or anything. It should last a long time. Mine will be one year old in January. No issues

u/GMan88 · 2 pointsr/FortNiteBR

The most important part of shot gun aiming, on a controller, is the ability to put jump onto your left hand, meaning you can aim and jump at the same time. Taking your thumb off the analogue to jump and then swiping the stick to try and aim again is really un-efficient way of aiming.

You will need: A scuff, battle beaver, XBOne Elite controller, doesn’t matter. Personally I use the FPS Strikepack Dominator, for my PS4, and it’s absolutely amazing. Heres the link to what I use.

Using the FPS I am able to set my left paddle/button on the back of the control to jump. So i can jump using my left ring finger without taking my right thumb off of the aim stick. It took me 3 days or about 8hours to get used to the extra button, but without a doubt, my aiming and shotgun confidence has improved massively. Judging on my aiming vs others, Id say as a rough guess that about 30-40% of players on console have the extra button. And these buttons are legal in MLG. If your Xbox, maybe look at an Xbox Elite controller, or PS I highly recommend what I use. Or just get a Scuff, but personally I think they are way to expensive for what they are.

This video will show you an example and is what convinced me... Skip to 3:30 to see it in use

For the price of a Scuff, I bought myself a brand new PS4 v2 controller in Steel Black, the FPS Strikepack Mod, and I can replace either one if they break and will still have spent less.

u/HeyItsMagni · 2 pointsr/FortNiteBR
u/iNick20 · 2 pointsr/scufgaming

I say Battle Beaver Customs if you really want a controller. Watch this guy review of one. He was sponsored by SCUF. I also would recommend this. or Amazon Link This basically adds the paddles to your regular PS4 Controller for $40. I seen a lot of reviews on it and it's totally worth the money for someone who looking to save some money and doesn't need all the extra shit. You can buy two and still be way ahead from a Scuf Controller. The only and main reason why Scuf is popular is because they sponsor almost everyone who plays PRO COD and gives them free SCUFS.

u/Jdodds1 · 2 pointsr/CoDCompetitive

Bumper jumper- downside is removing finger from aim button to press jump button

Claw- downside is a very awkward way of holding controller, it’ll take a lot of getting used too

Scuff style controller- downside is $ 100+price tag

Then there’s this.......

Still a decent price tag but less than 50% of a scuff and does the same thing

u/Aminimouse · 2 pointsr/OWConsole

Thanks! That's pretty much what I'm going for. I'm going to try the cheap version, and return it if I have to, but in terms of the two back buttons, this little add-on does exactly the same things :)

The palm-triggers can also be removed quickly without removing the entire peripheral, if they get annoying or something, idk lol

Note: Downside: Has to be wired.

u/frogunrua · 2 pointsr/FortnitePS4

I use the Strike Pack FPS mod by collective minds. It clips on to your stock controller and adds two remappable paddles and mods. I actually just use mine for the paddles. Jump assigned to right paddle and build to be left paddle. Jumping while simultaneously aiming is a major life improvement!

Edit: jump assigned to the right paddle

u/Astromons · 2 pointsr/PSVR

Apparently this uses contact points as well, look at the product questions..

Little cheaper at $29 :)

u/Neustrashimyy · 2 pointsr/PSVR

The Collective Minds one is Ok but it charges the DS4 controllers through their frontal micro usb port which is a weak point. This PowerA stand charges via the stronger rear port (it charges the moves in the same way as the Collective Minds one). It has one less DS4 but is officially licensed by Sony and is more compact as well. No place for the Aim though if that is a consideration. I own it so I may be a bit biased.

PowerA Charge & Display Station for PlayStation VR

u/jimbonics · 2 pointsr/PSVR

This thing, or an equivalent...

u/eaudaemon · 2 pointsr/PSVR

I would recommend a charging stand like that, it would greatly reduce the wire clutter.

u/DefinitelyBiscuit · 2 pointsr/PSVR

I have one of these stood atop of my pro

PSVR Showcase Charge Stand (PS4)

u/itsmy1stsmokebreak · 2 pointsr/PSVR

In the styles there's an option for the showcase with an addition for the aim which I don't have but I'll probably purchase at some point. The stand has been well worth the price for me since I can charge everything and keep it all in one spot.

u/Zeus_poops_and_shoes · 2 pointsr/PS4

Here's mine. Works great.

u/Dixonian89 · 2 pointsr/PSVR

I bought this one on amazon. It looks amazing (something i wouldn't mind sitting out all the time) and functions extremely well, plus you free up usb ports on your ps4 by having it, otherwise you are either unplugging your vr to charge them on a OG ps4 or you are taking up every single port on your PS4 pro.

If you want a stand that charges both move and controllers this is the one talked about most on here, I would definitely get that, especially for the price. If i had the room (my shelf is to small for it) and no kids to destroy my headset this is what i would have bought.

u/Moony2004 · 2 pointsr/PSVR

PSVR Showcase Charge Stand (PS4)

Just got myself one of these. Tidied it all up nicely and charges 2 controllers and 2 move controllers (it charges both old and new ones). I’m pretty happy with it and it wasn’t all that expensive.

u/geek2785 · 2 pointsr/PSVR
u/moogle_kupo · 2 pointsr/PSVR

I have had the collective minds showcase stand since 2016 and really like it. Its $35 and takes up a small foot print. It charges 2 move controllers. 2 dual shock controllers, and a headset or accessory such as the aim controller.

Collective Minds PSVR Showcase Rapid AC PS4 VR Charge & Display Stand - PlayStation 4

I have seen those same reports on amazon, but I've had mine since release and have had 0 problems. There's also many people on here that have it with no problems. With that said, I was tempted to upgrade to the aim version....but backed out because of the horror stories lol. All I know is I can vouch for the normal headphone version. It's been perfect.

u/Remming12 · 2 pointsr/PSVR

I'm in the U.S. but you can see if this one is in U.K. I absolutely love this one. It holds 2 DS4, 2 move controllers, VR headset, and headphones

Consider buying a stand with built in chargers.

I bought this one, but there are others...

No regrets, everything can be tidied away and charged at the same time.

u/wut_a_noob · 2 pointsr/PSVR

I really recommend this one:

Collective Minds PSVR Showcase Rapid AC PS4 VR Charge & Display Stand - PlayStation 4

Some other stands have problems.

u/irononreverse · 2 pointsr/PSVR

I just realised I forgot to link what I use! I use this.

Any of the charging headset stands made for the psvr will work with any move controllers, since they're the same for ps3/ps4.

Here's an example.

I'm not a big car game person either but the vr makes it much more fun for me.

u/james26685 · 2 pointsr/PSVR

The collective minds one is sweet. had no issues with my hmd falling/sliding off it which I see several of the powerA reviews mention. It costs less and charges 2 ds4 at a time and also has a USB port built in that gives you yet another place to charge a device (run a micro USB from this to your gold headset and you are set). It feels sturdy and the controllers snap in without issues. If you look at the product reviews you will see it is being brought down by people one staring who have not even tried it those that have are giving it good reviews.

u/LaRock0wns · 2 pointsr/oculus

What if you mount the rift on a shelf something like -

Then you would have room on the bottom of the stand to put the touch controllers.

I am really looking forward to getting a stand once the Touch controllers have come out. I saved this post.

u/OtakuD · 2 pointsr/PSVR

Get a powered USB hub and connect it to your one port? If it's just for charging then maybe get a docking station since there aren't enough USBs anyways. :)

u/Boozhi · 2 pointsr/PSVR

This one is only 5 bucks more, charges 2 dualshocks, and holds the PSVR itself. I have it and love it, surprisingly high quality for the price.

u/geraldine_ferrarbro · 2 pointsr/PSVR

I went with this stand, I like that it holds and charges everything, though the lights on it never turning off is a bummer. Might put some ND patches on it to dim them down substantially.

u/tFunk_Dek · 2 pointsr/PSVR

The psvr stand I bought doesn't use the mini-usb port for charging. It has contact points for the metal around the base of the old-school Move controllers which probably makes it universal for use with new and old Move controllers. It works great with my old Moves.

u/harrisonisdead · 2 pointsr/PSVR
  1. Keep it in the box, or on a stand. Always have some sort of glasses cleaning cloth to wipe the lenses periodically. It isn't the "fragile" type of expensive, so you should be fine with whatever solution you come up with.

  2. The system helps you figure out the best IPD settings by taking a picture of your face, but some would argue that it should be a little higher or lower.

  3. The Martian VR is the only one I can really think of. EDIT: And Loading Human! That game was the most disappointing game I have ever played.

  4. I personally like getting physical copies of games, but that is just preference in case I want to resell the game. Though it is easier to switch between games if you digitally download them.

  5. A charging VR stand like the Collective Minds one is a good investment as you don't have to keep around the controller chargers or use up USB ports on the system. Speaking of, make sure you have the move controllers. Don't spend a lot on headphones, any pair of headphones should work.
u/cozalt · 2 pointsr/PSVR

Congrats on joining the community!

I'm no expert by any means and will just be providing my personal opinion/experience, but to answer your questions:

Question 1: Keep the headset out of direct sunlight, especially the inner lens. Some use the box to keep it stored, I purchased this which works great. Clean the lens with glasses cleaning cloth or lens pen cleaner, such as this.

Question 2: I wear glasses as well. I noticed after months of use a tiny scratch on the lens but it doesn't affect my gameplay at all. There are solutions out there I'm sure, but I have not invested into any. PSVR is considered safe to use with glasses.

Question 3: I don't know the worst game, but I can give you a small list of the ones I've played and would say are worth getting in no particular order:

Resident Evil,
Farpoint (/w Aim Controller),
Playstation VR Worlds,
Robinson: The Journey,
Dirt Rally (/w Steering Wheel),
StarWars Battlefront (for X-wing mission - I found it cheap for $10),
Until Dawn: Rush of Blood

It's not hard to find amazing upcoming game, as this sub posts them often. Just to name a few I'm stoked for:

Skyrim VR,
Ace Combat 7,
Doom VR

Hopefully this helps you - goodluck!

Edit: I missed your last question. I linked already to the VR stand. Get a pair of Move controllers and Aim Controller.

Honest Strikepak Review

I’ve had mine nearly a year and it’s nearly the finest accessory I’ve ever bought but there are a few things to note. It is very light and seemingly flimsy-when it’s not on the controller. Once it’s on, if you don’t take it off and on all the time-it’s sufficiently well built. The clip has three small knobs that clip into the lower 3 speaker holes. The clip is flimsy-I wish they would have made it out of metal but if you treat your shit with a little care, it’s fine. I’ve dropped mine off the couch at least 200 times, the propriety 10ft cord and accompanying shroud are perfect, the port has absolutely no play after a year and it’s probably saved the port on the actual controller from damage.

The interface is both straightforward and completely asinine at the same time. You can instantly, in-game remap buttons to paddles with a couple of button pushes. No accessory or menu or computer needed. On Red Dead, in the world-I have one paddle mapped to to horse trot and one to sprint, when I go into PvP, I swap out one paddle for dead-Eye. Takes 1 second with no magnetic accessory needed. There are two mod modes available too. The first, and included for free, is mostly for FPS’s like cod and destiny. You can make semi autos full auto, have a different profile for secondary weapons, drop shot, auto run, quick scope, etc. Kinda fun, but a real pain to setup if you change out weapons all the time. The other mod mode is a paid subscription. $15 a year. This actually is like cheating. There are specific games these mods are made for and if you wanna check it out go here I won’t go into how well these work but suffice it to say, I didn’t use them outside of a novel week and won’t be renewing my subscription for the next year.

The paddles, themselves, are a different shape than Scuf or Evil. They wrap down the sides of the protuberances on the controller and use the actual controller handles to limit throw distance. This is so important in stressful situations as you simply CANNOT press the paddle too hard. The button throw is very short and has a decent click. It’s not too firm but has just enough tactile feedback to notice.

It also has a nice feature to turn off the rumble for every game. You do need a computer to set this feature up but it’s fairly small, straightforward GUI program for windows.

If you’re an adult or someone who handles your gaming systems with some care, it’s not flimsy at all, tho if the clip does break-you’re fucked. For $38 bucks at Walmart or amazon it’s hard to go wrong

u/Reqzr_Astro · 1 pointr/Rainbow6

Basically paddles you can put on a normal dualshock 4 controller. Basically turns a base PS4 controller into an elite controller.

u/gojiraYo · 1 pointr/Blackops4

Been messing around with how I want to play since I made the mistake on buying the game not on PC. So far it's made a big difference in overall control.

Using the Collective Minds FPS paddle accessory thing and bought this pack of aluminum joystick replacements off Amazon. The base is magnetic and it comes with a couple different lengths with concave/convex tops.

Link for joystick:

The quality of the rubber is a little meh, but once you wear it in it's much better. The concave ones are almost identical to Xbox One's joysticks.

Link for Collective Minds FPS thing:

Apparently there's a bunch of options for configurations but I'm too lazy to try and figure it out so I just mapped some face buttons to the paddles.

u/hdsix · 1 pointr/Infinitewarfare

Check out the Strike Pack from collective minds. I picked one up on release to avoid the necessity of dropping a couple hundo on a Scuf. Its out of stock right now but GameStop locally might have them in stock. I've not tried out the mods and don't have any plans too as it defeats the entire purpose of the game imo. As far as paddles are concerned they're incredible. Very ergo and nicer to use than the scuf paddles imo.

PS4 Version

u/Cheesesteak21 · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

I have one of these and like it alot, mappable paddles and you can clip it on to whatever controller you have now. It does need to be plugged in but it comes with a 10 foot cord.

u/Deceased_Puppy · 1 pointr/Warframe

I bought these for my GF's PS4. I put jump on the right and melee on the left. It's not as much control as a KBM, but it helps for sure. It's wired, and you have to make sure you turn on the PS4 without it connected, then connect after signing in. The paddles don't break, they actually fall out because they're connected via magnets. Don't toss it across the room, you won't lose the paddles. However, you also won't worry about snapping them because they just disconnect. Also the extra long charging cable is nice.

u/Skyerusg · 1 pointr/ShouldIbuythisgame

I bought a strike pack instead of a SCUF, I love it! I’ve had it for over a year now and no issues whatsoever, would highly recommend as I hear a lot of people say SCUFs break pretty quickly

The strike pack is a mod for the standard PS4 controller

u/djgreening · 1 pointr/NHLHUT

Hey man I was just in the same market. Noone really carries them yet but if you search strikepack f.p.s dominator it's a pretty cheap alternative until they are released here. Ordered mine on Amazon got it in 2 days

u/Gargergaga · 1 pointr/pathofexileps4

I use to use this,you can set 2 flasks to each paddle,then i use l1 for my life flask or quick silver.downside to the strike pack is the controller has to stay plugged in. Now i bought a new scuf with 4 paddles and just use that

Collective Minds Strike Pack F.P.S. Dominator Controller Adapter with MODS & Paddles for PS4

This product is literally 40 dollars for mods plus removable paddles. Only disadvantage is that you have to be wired to use it. On the other hand, being wired lowers input latency. Super easy to remap, etc.

u/Ineeditunesalot · 1 pointr/FortNiteBR

Collective Minds Strike Pack F.P.S. Dominator Controller Adapter with MODS & Paddles for PS4

You can buy them used for even cheaper. Probably more bulkier than a scuff but a scuf is way too expensive for me. The only downside is they have to be connected by cable to the ps4 but it comes with a long ass cable so that’s not really a problem unless you really need wireless.

u/PleySteshon · 1 pointr/Infinitewarfare

I've been dreaming of having scuf controller for playing mainly on CoD series. But $200 isn't cheap for controller... Recently I stumbled upon a post here about PS4 Strikepack, which is cheap made plastic add on to controller which gives extra 2 paddles for mapping. Only $40US dollars. WTH? I'll try... and got one from local Gamestop. Ever since... I'm using one of the paddle as jump, for jump shots... my K/D has improved from 0.2 to 0.5!!! I'm no representative nor advertiser. Just wanted to share how much simple paripheral add on can improve gaming.

But... I have to admjt... this can be OP and unfair to one's who don't own one... but for anyone who sucks in CoD can definitely benefit from this. And... let not limit it to CoD players only. This can be helpful to all other games.

Another features this addon gives are some mods... which I strongly disagree adding this feature first place... and anyone using this addon should never use them. Many features will get you banned from PS4 multiplayer as they are not acceptable. So please note this post is NOT for someone who wants to exploit gaming environment.

Amazon had this out of stock for some time:

u/Fatal-Feit · 1 pointr/forhonor

Do not, and I mean DO NOT, get a Scuf controller. They are overpriced and breaks insanely quickly. You'll be lucky to last even a couple months with one.

Razer are an okay product. I don't particularly like them. They are popular only in name alone, imo.

I'd say, even if you don't run Windows 10, still go for the X1 Elite controller. The default button mapping is fine and it's the only controller in the market that feels genuinely premium and will last at least a year.

But if you still refuse the X1 Elite controller, your best option are one of these.

Collective Minds Strike Pack F.P.S. Dominator Controller Adapter with MODS & Paddles for PS4

u/soothsayerSABER · 1 pointr/Warframe

FWIW I use one of these:

It adds paddles to the back of my controller that are programmable on the fly. You hold a button on the adapter and press the button you want to assign. It allows me to use things like alt-fire on amps and guns in a much easier fashion. It can also be used to do things like jump or ADS.

Also, I have never needed or wanted to use the included mods, and basically got this to avoid buying a super expensive third party controller with built in paddles.

u/thedirtyscreech · 1 pointr/CruciblePlaybook

I'm also looking to hear more about the controller leaked on by Emio, and this controller plugin as well. I'm hoping at least one of the four options here will be wireless, but I'm kinda doubtful that will be the case.

u/Bpande20 · 1 pointr/ApexConsole

It takes some getting used to, but now it's hard for me to play without them. I'll probably wait for the next gen to get an elite controller, but these are what I use now for PS4 and I love them: Strikepack

Keep in mind you can't use these wirelessly

u/Daddy_Maestro · 1 pointr/Rainbow6

I heard bad things regarding their quality and customer support.

You can get one of these:

It's much cheaper and provides basically the same functionality. I haven't tried it so look for reviews before buying one.

u/General_Confusion02 · 1 pointr/headphones

Well actually, it’ll probably be plugged into a mod with it’s own port

u/Danny__L · 1 pointr/OWConsole

I'm actually using this:

Works well for jump and whatever else you want on the back of the controller. Cheaper than a scuf, cinch, battlebeaver, etc. Only needed 2 back buttons. 4 is overkill IMO.

u/Seebs9 · 1 pointr/PS4

If just wanting to get some paddles, a strikepack dominator is a decent enough investment.

I have one that I like quite a bit. Seems better option then some of the modded ones, especially for what they cost.

u/bradd95x · 1 pointr/FortnitePS4

you’re on about this thing right?

u/gatorglaze · 1 pointr/CruciblePlaybook

Assuming you are on PS4;

This thing is amazing for the price. I have gone through 3 scuf controllers, 2 still going and my first one died of my own stupidity. The only reason I have not ditched the scuf for stock controller + this attachment is because of adjustable trigger pull. I cannot go back to a full trigger pull after having the scuf for so long, once I figure out what to do to get adjustable trigger stops on my stock controller, I will prob switch. The only con, HAS to be wired at all times. But I play at a desk with a monitor so its no big deal.

if your on Xbox they make one for the xbox controller as well.

u/Scirax · 1 pointr/Sekiro

Ive been wanting these for EVER. But I still can't force myself to spend this much $$

u/dlregis · 1 pointr/PSVR

I have one of these... works great, price seems pretty reasonable

u/TonyDP2128 · 1 pointr/PSVR

I own the Power-A Charge and Display stand and bought the new headset/Skyrim bundle which includes the new Moves last week. It's this one:

For me, the new Moves charged just fine with the Power-A as the stand uses the contacts and not the USB port. I know they charged because when I first paired them with my PS4 it told me they had low charge and after sitting on the stand for a few hours they showed as fully charged on the PS menu.

u/0jaffar0 · 1 pointr/PSVR

I dont have an all in one, but I can highly recommend the following two products.

Despite what some say, this cooling fan makes all the difference.
I have my ps4 inside an entertainment system where it gets little airflow.
this guy is a lifesaver. I have read reviews that said the airflow blows in the wrong direction...this is not true...not on mine anyway. The only issue I have with this stand is that the controllers are charged upside down, meaning you have to be somewhat careful placing them in the cradle perfectly straight, otherwise the male plug would eventually tear up the female plug. Definitely not for use with careless people, or children, but for me its great. Looks much more elegant then all the other options. The fans work excellent, but are quieter then the disk drive.

The move controller charging stand is kept in another room, without the VR stand attached and it looks great this way, but can easily be tucked away somewhere. This charger works absolutely flawless. I know its a steep price, but totally worth it.

u/JiminyWillikerz · 1 pointr/PSVR

This thing looks pretty neat. But it's... $50.

u/RainbowJosh · 1 pointr/PSVR

I bought for my HMD and moves, but I would like a stand for my aim controller.

u/IndustrialDesignLife · 1 pointr/PSVR

I invested in a vr stand and recharge station. I highly recommend the ps branded one. It’s saved the unit from a lot of wear and tear and ensures the controllers are always charged.

I have this one

PowerA Charge & Display Station for PlayStation VR

u/Ps4_and_Ipad_Lover · 1 pointr/PSVR perfect for me it charges the controller and 2 motion controllers at once

u/Dravenworks · 1 pointr/PSVR

who use's DC anymore ?

almost everything now days is AC Switching 100-240V (Step-Down Transformers are needed for OLD Gaming stuff .. i remember buying a USA Playstation 1 and had to use a Step-Down transformer for AUST ... but geez, that was over 20 YEARS ago. FYI Things have changed)

eg. This [Stand] ( will work in America and Australia ... AC Adaptor: 100-240V - 50/60Hz 0.5A Max Output 5.0V - 2.5A

the only thing that is different between US and AU is the POWER PLUG, which you'll need to buy a $2 Plug Adapter.

u/PugawanLearner · 1 pointr/PSVR

It's not cheap but this did wonders for my cable management.

This is now how clean my setup is.
(Note that the DS4 charges right in front of the Move controllers too just forgot to charge in for the picture.)

u/TheRealMeatloaf · 1 pointr/PSVR

Someone's already recommended the Collective Minds charging station and I looked at that when I got my PSVR but a lot of people said it could become a problem because it uses the micro USB port to charge, which could get damaged over time. This one, the "Charge And Display Station" is a Sony licensed third party product and uses the power connector at the bottom of the DS4 instead so it's supposed to be more durable. Because it plugs into the wall you'll still have a free USB if you want to charge two DS4s at the same time.

u/LionOfLiberty0 · 1 pointr/PSVR

I ordered this one It was on sale this weekend for $29.99

u/Devasstator · 1 pointr/PSVR

I personally use this one for storage when Im not playing (and you can use it for travel):

For charging controllers/move, I use the collective minds stand because it charges 2 controllers at once:

u/AlduinDoesGaming · 1 pointr/PSVR

Board up all windows, and make a vacuum tube that delivers pizza to a nearby table lol

But in all seriousness yeah sunlight can mess up the lens, I'm probably gonna get the Collective Minds PSVR Stand. Kinda sucks that it's not coming out on launch, so I'm probably gonna use the PSVR box temporarily lol

u/ray_dog · 1 pointr/PSVR
u/W0NdERSTrUM · 1 pointr/PSVR

I got one for $35 on Amazon that has 2 regular controller chargers, 2 move controller chargers, a headphone rest and a spot for the PSVR.

Collective Minds

Works like a champ.

u/WreckerCrew · 1 pointr/PSVR

Dude, cancel your pre-order and just get this one. It's available now and holds 2 PS4 controllers instead of the one that yours holds. I have one and it is great.

u/XtReMe98 · 1 pointr/PSVR

i have one of these.. charges two dualshocks, two moves, and has a usb port for if you need to charge something with a cable like a headset. works great

Edit: also it charges the old and new move controllers as it uses the tabs next to the port instead of the mini/micro usb


u/Furimbus · 1 pointr/PSVR

Collective Minds PSVR Showcase Rapid AC PS4 VR Charge & Display Stand - PlayStation 4

This is the one I use, and I’m happy with it. Charges two move controllers and two regular controllers, with a place to rest the headset and headphones. (I don’t use headphones, just the attached earbuds, and so the headset cable loops nicely over the stand’s headphone rest). I think there’s also a version that can accommodate an Aim controller, too.

u/cleverwordplay85 · 1 pointr/PSVR

I got my PSVR a few weeks ago and bought this:

PSVR Showcase Charge Stand (PS4)

I can’t stand wires all over the place, it charges 2 DualShocks, 2 moves and has a usb socket on the back for wireless headsets to charge. I’d highly recommend it.

I have been eying this one. It seems pretty nice and has good reviews. I know you just mentioned a charging stand for the controllers, but the shelf for the VR unit seems like a nice addition to try to keep things tidy.

u/WarlanceLP · 1 pointr/Vive

It looks interesting but it's not quite as neat as I want, I want one cable going back from the dock for some cable consolidation like with my psvr stand

u/Haywood_Djabloeme · 1 pointr/PSVR
u/pocketmnky · 1 pointr/PSVR

Seems very form over function. The white with light wood trim is pretty, but it looks like it would take forever to put away my PSVR and controllers.

And since I have a toddler and a girlfriend who are constantly vying for my attention, I need to be able to pull off my headset and put it away safely and securely (out of reach of the toddler) with one hand in a few seconds.

For my money, I prefer the Collective Minds stand.

u/Jabborn · 1 pointr/PSVR

Awesome! Beats my old display. I had mine on a big skull for a while. The I bought one of these bad boys.

They live up to the hype and I've never looked back.

u/SuperC142 · 1 pointr/PSVR

I use this charging station and love it:

I left the top off of it to make it smaller because I don't need to hang my headset there (I keep it in a zippered case). This lets me store and charge my 2 controllers and 2 move controllers far away from my PS4 and not occupy a USB port.

u/IsSuperGreen · 1 pointr/PSVR

I just got this in the mail, instantly freed up a bunch of space and now I don't have rotate controllers/headset with the usb ports.


u/Slovenhjelm · 1 pointr/Guiltygear

haha, i cant believe i left that out!

its this one! a madcatz TES+

u/facial · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

the new MadCatz TES+ is 50 bucks off on amazon right now -

I bought in on release for 200, and have been very happy with it.

u/Datpz · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

The TES+ is 20% off. This will be the most bang for your buck. Usually sells for 200$, its 150$ now. Get it while its hot:

u/cmiller456 · 1 pointr/dragonballfighterz

Hey man, I got an arcade stick a few years ago but never got around to using it, used it probably under 10 times, I did replace the thing under the joystick with an square gate instead of the 8 way, if you’re interested let me know. It’s this one

Mad Catz Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick TES+ for PlayStation4 and PlayStation3

u/Hatchie901 · 1 pointr/Fighters

If you're interested in a new stick, the TE-S is 20% off at Amazon right now. There probably won't be a better deal during Evo

u/oooooooooomg · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

Is the Street Fighter V alpha fight stick this one PC compatible?

u/Khronikos · 1 pointr/PS4

Well, I have the TES+ which is an amazing stick. It is by Madcatz, who is now out of business. This stick will be rare and worth quite a bit in the coming years.

If you don't want to find one of them I recommend the Razer here:

Personally, I don't like any of the current Hori sticks. But people are always releasing new sticks. I'm not a huge fan of the artwork on the Razer, but the stick is quality. I will always love my TES+ though. I hope it holds up over the long term. Qanba is a good brand too but I don't really dig their aesthetics much.

It's all up to you.

u/MathewKinetix · 1 pointr/Fighters

Alternatively, if you're looking for something smaller, but equally sexy

u/BAWLS_Life · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

Still 25% off. I have this one. I love it.

I have owned 2 other sticks and used various others. This is by far my favorite.

u/stenbroder · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

Might be what you are looking for. Or a PCB swap, if you are handy.

u/CaNANDian · 1 pointr/NHLHUT

Get this

and an Xbox 1 elite controller.

Much higher quality than a Scuf(fed).

u/Treb27 · 1 pointr/PS4

Gam3Gear Brook Xbox One to PS4 Super Converter Gaming Adapter with Gam3Gear Keychain

This is the one I’ve been using for a little over a year with zero issues. As long as you don’t mind a hot pink dongle...

If you have a PS4 Pro, it will only fit in the rear USB port. Sony made the front ports harder to reach, so it doesn’t fit them anymore.

u/thegroundbelowme · 1 pointr/gaming

Might I recommend something like this? It does require a wired connection, but at least you'd be using a controller you like.

u/BornAK · 1 pointr/xboxone
u/majindutin · 1 pointr/disabledgamers

There's a device for ps4 that lets you use Xbox one controllers on ps4. It's about $40 on Amazon right now. I use it, too. I've not tried it with the adaptive controller specifically, but it works with my Ben Heck custom modded controller, and the adaptive controller is supposed to function just like a standard controller, so out should work. You can get it here:

u/zeno82 · 1 pointr/gaming

I believe this is the adapter I'm using:

Edit - linked 360 one rather than xbone one earlier

u/Kered13 · 1 pointr/Games

I just Googled "Xbox one to PS4 adapter" and can make no promises about this. There were other results as well, so I would suggest doing your own research.

u/R3DEMPTEDlegacy · 1 pointr/MaddenUltimateTeam

The Xbox Elite controller once you can retrain your brain to use the paddles is a game changer.especially in shooters where the trigger locks can literally make you faster than the other guy.


heres a super buget elite controller 30$ for 2 paddles,trigger locks and customizable thum sticks.



also never buy the scuff your paying a almost 50$ more than the reg elite for something that has way less versatility.on the scuff theres no custom presets for the paddles like the elite and fusion and if it breaks no warranty.even Ps4 users should look at the adapter for xbox to ps4 just for a cheaper and better paddle option

u/NackJines · 1 pointr/MortalKombat

I'll always be bringing my ps4/monitor with extra controllers to meetups, so feel free to use one of those whenever I'm around. If you would rather use an xbox controller on ps4, Brook converters are a solid option. There are other xbox players, and we were talking about maybe all chipping in to buy a converter for community use during meetups/tournaments.

u/sudo-apt-get-rekt · 1 pointr/xboxone

I’d imagine one of these. I think it requires a DS4 to spoof the connection so the PS4 believes a DualShock is connected. I have one from the same brand that lets me use ps3 controllers wirelessly on my ps2 and it works great.

u/Shelonias · 1 pointr/PS4

There are adapters you can buy to use different controllers for different consoles.

This may be what you’re looking for:

u/WhimsicalJape · 1 pointr/CruciblePlaybook

If you still have the Xbox Elite controller you can buy one of these:

I’ve had a PS4 Scuf and now use this setup on PS4 and the elite is way better than a scuf.

u/LadyStarling · 1 pointr/playstation

Here is a link to SCUF Vantage Wireless PS4 controllers exclusively at GameStop. However, they are quite expensive- about $200

Or you can get an adapter on amazon for $40

I don't know why it's pink but here's the fine print on using Xbox one controllers:
It doesn’t support Xbox one wireless but you can use the charge cable to connect with the controller and console to enable it works.

u/LeoIsLegend · 1 pointr/PS4

Plug and play. Only downside is you're always wired and you can't turn the console on with the controller. Honestly though, I'd stick with the PS4 Controller... I got used to it eventually. Some Kontrol Freeks CQC might help.

u/Freakysheikh · 1 pointr/PS4

It’s a little usb stick that lets you use a certain controller on a console. For me i have the Xbox elite controller but started to play more on the PS4 over the last year or so. I decided to use my elite and it works great just plug and play. Only issue is an update from Sony could break the compatibility. It rarely happens but it happened this time. The company is usually pretty quick about updating the software for the converter.

If you want to take a look

u/ness33 · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

Same as /u/Lokisfather, I too use my elite controller on my PS4.

Not that I'm advertising, but just letting you know what I use, and it works pretty seamless with Destiny. I love having the same feel of controller in my hand, with the paddles... for both consoles.

u/g-coded · 1 pointr/simracing

As others stated, there is no peripheral that is cross platform compatible. However, the trick is to buy a xbox compatible(usually a proprietary chip) and then 'convert' that to work with ps4. I haven't used it, but a quick search comes up with a Gam3Gear Brook Xbox One to PS4 Super Converter. It lists racing wheels and has a good review score.

u/SteakJohnson · 1 pointr/AlternativeAmazonVGF

This Is what I'm looking at, I'm still doing some research. The biggest drawback is that it needs to be wired, I'm not sure if the headset jack works either. Both of those things are a cause of hesitation.

u/Zarantyr · 1 pointr/dbfz

Update for you, if you want to shell out the 40 dollars and get that, it works fantastic, every button works and no re-wiring, like KeytarsRus said!

u/Deadlyx39 · 1 pointr/NHLHUT

Buy one of these

It’ll let you use your elite on PS4.

u/maddogsly · 1 pointr/PS4

Actually there is I've had the same problem I went from 360 to PS4. There is an adapter on amazon that I found that lets Xbox one wireless controllers work on a PS4.

u/mauledbypandas · 1 pointr/FIFA

You can actually use the Xbox controller with the PS4. Not tested it though

u/Lorben · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

For D-Pad use I've heard a lot of good things about Hori Fight pads.

u/haste57 · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

When my friends come over to play we use my xbox one controllers which you can either buy the charge and play cable for it to work immediately or the wireless PC adapter to go with it so you can have multiple controllers if you wants friends over playing. I've heard the PS4 controller works now but have not tested it myself. There is also a Hori gamepad that some people love and I've seen recommended on here


u/orion1973 · 1 pointr/INJUSTICE

put as much health and defense on your character as possible, do the endless multiverse. Then, buy this controller. It comes with a turbo function.

u/okifoxjl · 1 pointr/dragonballfighterz this model right?
You sure you’re just not accustomed to flipping your motions? This is the model i use without issue. But controllers are all preference with comfortability. You may like the ds4 much more than i do. Xbox ones controllers dpad was pretty good too but not terribly comfy.

u/RU_Student · 1 pointr/Tekken

I'm only at vindicator with alisa but I'll throw in some suggestions - Take them with a grain of salt:

In your first match I noticed that you did b4,3 at the wall, ff1+2,2 or f4,3,4 are solid replacements that do more damage and are less linear

I saw you do ws1,2, then 4 - be careful with that as people duck it very often and are usually blocking already by that point. At higher ranks you will get launched for it if the other person notices a pattern. Only the ws1,2 is guaranteed.

Awesome use of iWr2, and nice job floating chloe out of cali roll with ws1,2 I actually didn't know you could do that. I usually use b2,4. (this also works against Eddie and his relax stance)

A safer combo on counterhit 4 is (micro dash), b1, ws1,2 b2, 4. The d3 one I say you using is fairly linear and can whiff

I noticed that you didnt use the f3,2 1+2 2 (then optional DES close with 1+2), Thats a great combo for keepout and punishing

Also learn KBD, Alisa absolutely needs it, she is a poke heavy character and you have to be able to space yourself from your opponent well. She crumbles at range 0 imo. When I learned KBD I practiced it after the round was over just to ingrain the motion.

I saw in someone elses post that you have trouble doing it on your pad, I've used this one : [Hori Fighting Commander] ( and it felt much better for backdashing than a DS4 (for reference I'm 6'3 so I have big hands too)

Thats all I can think of for now, I'm planning on posting some of my matches up this week too, I play Alisa pretty differently so maybe you'll find something useful or just watch me get bodied. Also that chloe was obnoxious lol.

u/Bizardon · 1 pointr/Tekken

maybe a fightpad is the Solution for ya. The Dragon slay Fightpad could work for you since it got his own extension:

I own a hori fighting commander which has larger buttons than the normal ps4/xbox pads but no extension. I like it a lot:

Mayber it is easier for you doing a "fake" kbd by doing b bqcb.

Also if you think your throws are inkonsistent you can change those by adding a throw to a shoulder button(r1/l1).

U don't have to know every move to punish. Focus on avoiding,blocking punish moves that you are struggling with or known danger moves like demoman, snake edge or hellsweap.

It's always good watching other players on how they deal with your characters.

EDIT: There is a other version of the hori fightpad where you can change the dpad by rotation. But this is more like a stick than a pad and it has a extension:

u/ImaginaryEvils · 1 pointr/GameDeals

I mean I’ve been using the Xbox One pad for years so, if you really want to get into it a stick would be good, Hori makes a good ones, and they also make good pads, so it is really up to you, though never think that what you use hinders your ability and skill, it’s all preference. I did some of the hardest loops/combos in Marvel on a Xbox 360 controller.

Though here some recommendations:



You could also look into Qanba stuff, you could go cheaper for fight sticks but the parts (buttons,stick) won’t be as high quality.

u/Deathly_rYaN · 1 pointr/INJUSTICE

Before I buy it, is this the controller that will allow me to set it to play endless overnight?

u/Kyro2354 · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

I'm in the same situation as you, coming from playing smash 4 competitively for almost a year now and wanted to try SF5. I would recommend either getting the Hori Fighting Commander 4, or the Qanba Drone

I personally recently purchased the Qanba Drone due to a fighstick being much easier and healthier for my hands and wanting a fighstick as I've heard of how helpful they can be for execution. I at first was going to get a fighting commander 4, and would suggest that if you think you'd prefer pad, but my personal recommendation is a Qanba Drone. It's a bit pricier but it's a quite good stick for the price and can be modded in the future if you decide you really like stick.

u/mikedante2011 · 1 pointr/INJUSTICE

Yeah one of my buddies playing MVC which would be nice, and my other friends do SF, so it would get play time regardless. I would be bummed if i couldn't get it to work out right for Injustice. Now my question is this - Do you use the Joystick on the controller to play Injustice? I fight it so hard to play and generally use the control pad on the controller. Have you used a Fight controller for Injustice?

u/titanium_nine · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

I bought a Hori Fighting Commander Pro 4 back when it was on sale for 20$ from my local store and put that pcb into my TE S stick. It works perfect on my pc and on ps4s(no time out).

Switching out the pcb is cheap and easy even for a first timer. There's plenty of instructions out there on how to do it. Just use common sense, ask questions and take your time.

u/max1c · 1 pointr/Tekken

I'm not going to recommend playing Tekken on a keyboard as IMO that's a terrible idea but if you want a good Keyboard get WASD:

Here is another decent mechanical keyboard for a very reasonable price:

Since your budget is limited I would get this for Tekken specifically:

I'd also like to note that there are a ton of mechanical keyboard clones now on the market and it can be super confusing to pick a good one. I would suggest you look at Cherry MX switches only. In addition there are different Cherry switches so I'd suggest doing some research. This will help:

u/pplzrespond · 1 pointr/fightsticks

For PCB.

You can try dual modding used fightpads for Quad mod. More work but you can sometimes find them for less than 30 each preowned.
So, <60~ for both pcbs.

Ones I used...
PDP Mortal Kombat X Fightpad
Hori Fighting Commander 4

Other benefit of this is no firmware updates.

u/Negative_Rainbow · 1 pointr/Fighters

In terms of games to play, Street Fighter V or Guilty Gear Rev are where you want to be. Street Fighter, despite all the complaints people have, is the game with the biggest playerbase, so you will find the most resources for that game. Guilty Gear has some of the best ingame resources for learning, and plenty of out of game resources so it also an excellent place to start.

As for prehipherals, if you want to try out stick on PC, I've heard the Qanba Carbon ($60) is a good place to start. I personally ordered one last week, can't report on the quality until it comes in, but the reviews are good. If you want a controller and are willing to learn dpad, the Hori Fighting Commander ($40) is the best pad on the market, I own one and it feels/plays fantastic. Also the fighting commander has ps3/ps4 support if you want to play in tournaments (most are played on ps4).

u/TypographySnob · 1 pointr/fightsticks

Never seen that before. As an alternative, check out the PowerA Fusion FightPad or the Retro-bit Saturn controller. There's also the wireless Saturn and Gensis pads from 8bitdo and Retro-bit (but I'm always paranoid about delay in wireless PCBs) and the HORI Fighting Commander (but it has a + shaped d-pad).

u/Lord_Baine · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

My buddy has this one and won't shut up about how great it is.

They also have one for xbox

u/Echoj2 · 1 pointr/RetroPie

I don't own one, but a video I saw showed how awful that d-pad is.

The HORI Fighting Commander looks pretty solid and has a turbo function, though I don't own one either, but I'll bet you are looking for an all-in-one solution and need analog sticks.

u/Hori--FTW · 1 pointr/Kappa

Your chances of finding a legit contoller are pretty low. They were made in a very low supply and only in Japan. They sold out quickly and the Chinese bootlegger's jumped on it. So if you find one like this on Ebay, chances are that it's a Chinese bootleg. I should know because I bought one and the D-pad snapped right off after about a month of moderate use. $50 well spent. Sarcasm.

You're best bet is to buy an authentic Saturn controller and then buy an adapter.

I have no idea if there is an adapter for PS3/PS4 but I can verify that this adapter works for PC without issue.

Saturn D-Pad is good but it's little loose. If you've ever held one of those Madcatz controllers it's like that but obviously of a better quality.

The gold standard for fighting game controllers is the Hori:

Specifically this version with the switch for PC. Avoid the Pro version like the plague. I've bought two different Pro's and they both stopped working after less than a year. I've bought this controller over a year ago and have yet to have any issues. Hence my username.

But use what you're comfortable with. Reminder: Smug, I'mStillDaddy and Nuckledu use the standard PS4 controller. I think there's a couple of other pad warriors that hit top 8. I know Luffy uses a controller but I don't know if he's still using a PS1 controller or made the switch to PS4 or Hori.

u/BaC0nz13 · 1 pointr/Fighters

I have never used a fighting stick before. I am going to buy a fight pad instead. I am looking to play UMvC3 on PC (and maybe PS4). My xbox one controller does not work anymore. The RB button is broken. I used my xbox one controller for MKX, the D-pad seemed okay.

  • HORI Fighting Commander 4


  • HORI Fighting Commander

    From what I have read the Fighting Commander 4's d-pad is more reliable. I have read that some of the Fighting Commander's d-pad break pretty easy. Would it be better to spend the $65 over the $40?

u/C-Abdulio · 1 pointr/kof

And THIS is why I'm investing in one of THESE -

Not that I'm dismaying stick players; i envy their fine-tuned control and there are some things you cannot do with a pad that you can do with a stick. I even tried practicing Bodega-chains with Kyo in KOF XIII with my old 360 stick.

But nothing feels more comfy for me than playing SNK games with pad. Been that way since I started with KOF 98 on the DC. It's a good part of why I love SNK games - All my button are on the face pad, and they're paired up so I just need to press 2 for rolls or blow back. Shoulder buttons are just extra stuff as needed.

u/rmeds · 1 pointr/dbfz

People who use stick are usually the guys who grew up playing fighting games in the arcade- so it's something they are used to. However not all notable pros use stick- sonicfox for example uses pad, and he won winterbrawltwith with it. So I guess if you feel like you will be more comfortable using a stick, then go with it- but don't think that it's required to play well.

Personally, I use The hori fighting commander . This works for both pc and ps4- they have an Xbox version as well. I chose this as my input device because I grew up playing fighting games on a pad and because it's easy to transport.

I don't know much about sticks, but look into hori and qanba brands. What I do know about sticks is their users recommend spending a bit more rather than buy a cheap stick and needing to replace it other on.

Here's some vids that can help you decide

Just remember- it all comes down to personal preference. Good luck on you're choice and maybe we'll run into each other in ranked

u/Lows005 · 1 pointr/Rainbow6

Gaming ($149.99 price tag). It's plug & play and appears to work fine on PC but the console versions of the games aren't "meant" to be played with a Kb/M so there are issues with the movement and aiming. Rather than the mouse being a 1:1, it merely replicates the movement of a joystick. Major issues with dead zones and acceleration. I'm sure it's something you could get use to, or live with...but it's not quite there yet and I'm guessing it won't be until console fully integrates Kb/M and the game developers add that as a configuration option. I don't see that happening on current gen consoles.

u/Gidorick · 1 pointr/playstation

The turn speed for mice is MUCH faster than controllers and mouse if much more precise. With elite controllers you simply reposition buttons. While I will agree there is an advantage, I don't think it's an unfair advantage.

Here's a good video comparison:

Also, if you want a keyboard and mouse for PS4, there are options:

and it's officially licensed. So I guess my argument is invalidated because they are kinda already allowing it. XD

My desire for a pro controller is more about build quality and form factor than it is about "tactical advantages".

u/radiorental · 1 pointr/WorldofTanksConsole

PS4 totally supports mouse, that's all I play fps games on console with.

Sony is coming out with an official mouse later this year

u/_LarZen_ · 1 pointr/PS4

Just as with a mouse & keyboard you got to practice. If you just cant deal with a controller on PS4 then give the HORI Tactical Assault Commander PRO a go? It's an officially PlayStation branded device that even Sony has promoted on their PlayStation homepage.

u/zackyd665 · 1 pointr/Games

The only reason I asked is I did a bit of research and found official devices like the XIM particualarly the Hori tac pro amazon link

Which was licensed by both sony link and microsoft. news link for MS license

So does the line fall at all non-licensed devices?

If you don't want to respond that is fine I just find this entire conversation actually very interesting and I always have found these kind of discussions just absolutely fascinating. Since I have been having them since the 360 era with arguing about harddrive upgrades(like releasing the tools to let people format any drive to work since they were just 2.5 sata drives "low quality drives at that" in a proprietary case and cable adapter)on the xbox forums no less and sorry if that is bothersome.

u/siegeballer726 · 1 pointr/Rainbow6

I'll explain it like this: Sony licenses an mnk adapter.... Sony is aware that the only reason people would use said licensed mnk adapter is to play mnk on a game that doesn't support it natively, therefore Sony is showing they don't care if people use said adapters to play mnk on PS4 games that don't support mnk. I'm not breaking PS4 rules, if Ubi doesn't like that PS4 doesn't care if people use mnk or not, then they can remove their game from PS4. If not, I'm not cheating.

HORI Tactical Assault Commander Pro (TAC Pro) KeyPad and Mouse Controller for PS4 and PS3 FPS Games Officially Licensed by Sony - PlayStation 4

u/SymbolicGamer · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

> But playstation has licensed mouse and keyboards out in the market.

You mean this abomination?

I dunno. I'd say it's extremely cheap, but not cheating (on PS4) because it's endorsed by Sony. It still isn't the same as plugging in a full qwerty keyboard though. Has anyone here tried that thing with Destiny? How was it?

>Honestly if you define cheating as anything that gives a player an advantage or edge...

I didn't say that. I said the elite controller and third party accessories that function similarly give the player an advantage, but it's not cheating because the elite controller's features are endorsed by Microsoft. (When talking about designing the Elite controller they mentioned that the reason it didn't have turbo buttons is because they consider it cheating.) The back paddles, the trigger stops, the swappable sticks. All that you can get in an officially licensed product. Same goes for using a fight stick in fighting games.

> Just cause a scrub picks up a m&k don't mean he gonna start slaying folks, you still need to be skilled with it as with a controller.

I agree.

As far as I know, you can't but SONY is releasing their own USB dongle for Dualshock 4 on PC.

EDIT: DS4 Wireless dongle:

u/Seiksae · 1 pointr/playstation

I bought a small Bluetooth dongle and paired my DS3 and DS4 to it so I could play PC games with my controllers wirelessly. The DS4 Wireless Adaptor (link below) appears to do the same thing but without you needing to reformat the firmware and drivers of the dongle like I had to do. If you want to play PC games with your DS4 wirelessly then go for it.
Of note, you can still play with a USB cable connecting the PC and DS4 if that works for your purposes.

Note: I use PC to represent personal computer, regardless of the OS you choose to use.

u/Kingukingu · 1 pointr/pcgamingtechsupport

1st try the different premade configurations in the configuration tool, for some reason it’s REALLY funky but some work and some won't even after adjusting the settings.

Sony DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor

It's an adapter made by sony specifically for Dualshock 4 controllers to connect to PC, no emulation software needed.

Here's the controller/adapter kit for those interested:

That said PS4 controller support on PC is still pretty damn iffy.

If the USB is damaged, you need to get the following:

This charger uses the AUX port (instead of the USB port) at the bottom of the controller to charge.

This is the official Sony DS4 wireless adaptor. You can get cheaper BT usb adapters, but this is going to be the easiest.

u/lukini101 · 1 pointr/paragon

Well with Paragon it works natively. I can't say that I've tried it out with many non-steam games, but so far it's worked fine with Steam. You can remap it and do whatever you want with it (haven't personally done that yet). If you want you can even get a wireless adapter for the DS4, that way you don've have to stay plugged in.

u/jtrodule · 1 pointr/PS4

I’m pretty sure you need a special dongle for connecting it via Bluetooth even if your PC has Bluetooth capabilities. This is the adapter:

u/_Maxmillian · 1 pointr/Warthunder

You would think, but gaijin is known to be bass ackwards.

I also got one of these. You can probably find it cheaper as I think I paid around $25 for mine.

u/Emerald_Flame · 1 pointr/buildapc

Sony actaully makes a dongle specifically for that:

If I remember right, it only supports 1 controller at a time though.

u/Wolfgang1991 · 1 pointr/gaming

Just see big brother in your search bar ;)

Sorry to say but they cost half of that last year, use why they would go up in price.

u/cusman78 · 1 pointr/Helldivers

You can use the standard DS4 you got for your PS4 for your Steam gaming by attaching it via a USB cable.

To make the DS4 work wireless on the PC or Mac for something like Steam or Remote Play, you can get something like the Sony Dualshock 4 Wireless Controller Starter Kit which includes a DS4 and the USB Wireless BlueTooth transmitter or you can get just the Sony Dualshock 4 USB Wireless Adapter sold separately.

Note: I have also come across references of making generic USB BlueTooth Adapters work, but it is more complicated to get them synced with your DS4 and get them working. Those solutions also tend to require some 3rd party software which basically detect your DS4 like an Xbox 360 controller so the game shows Xbox button prompts instead of DS4 button prompts.

This Adapter

u/dantat · 1 pointr/PS4

This is what you need to use the DS4 wirelessly with a PC.

u/dregwriter · 1 pointr/dragonsdogmaonline

first of all buy this.

then use a program like "INPUT MAPPER" or "DS4 WINDOWS" to have the ps4 controller emulate an xbox 360 controller so all games that support 360 controller(dogma online does) will work with the PS4 as well. And also be able to completely customize the PS4 controller like switching buttons, change analog sensitivity settings, enabled trackpad for mouse or other custom feature, turn buttons into macros or use trackpad swipe functions as macros or custom button presses and map key and mouse commands to the controller.

I personally use PS4 controller to play dogma online on PC. and im using input mapper.

u/wavetoyou · 1 pointr/PS4Pro

The DS4 v2 alone retails for $59.99, but is currently on Amazon for $39.00 via Prime.. The USB adapter goes for $22 on Amazon, and is also included...technically a freebie in this deal.

u/sylv3r · 1 pointr/PHGamers

I'll suggest going with the DS4 if you prefer the Sony controller layout if you prefer the Xbox one, go with that instead.

If you go the DS4 route you can get one of these:

I use it on my machine and it works really well (both are available from datablitz).

As for recommended stores, iTech, Gameone and DB are the goto recommendations.

u/bitsper2nd · 1 pointr/pcgaming

You have two options. One is the official dongle sold by Sony. The other is a third-party that has been received well in the market. The free alternative is to use this software to configure your Dualshock 4.

u/Sillymicrobe · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

If for whatever reason the perfectly viable method above isn't working or you prefer official methods, Sony sells their own adapter specifically for PC despite the controller being able to work with a simple bluetooth adapter... Here is a link to it if you want it.

Edit: aaand even the "official" adapter apparently doesn't natively work with just any game. You are better off with a bluetooth adapter and the software posted above.

u/Lorelei_Valfreyja · 1 pointr/buildapc

I've been using Sony's DualShock 4 Wireless USB Adapter.

I purchased the DS4+Dongle bundle at Best Buy, it's on sale a few times throughout the year for $39.99. However, it's currently $69.99.

u/plurally · 1 pointr/pcgaming

I've used a few different micro-usb to usb cables and how well they stay in the DS4 is really hard to predict but the one I have now doesn't fall out, but if the click-in metal part breaks then you really just have to get a new wire. Or the jack could be faulty, it's hard to know but with wires that had the metal clicking part broken or not existent then it would sometimes fall out of the back of my controller while gaming. I would test this by making sure the micro-usb connection is actually clicking into the back of the controller, if you can pull it out of the back with minimal effort it might be a good idea to test a few other wires to see if they stay in or come out easily. I'd also test another USB jack if the controller's connection seems firm.

I heard that a regular bluetooth dongle would work but that was not the case for me (except for the steam-link that bluetooth just worked). It could be that the cheap bluetooth dongle I had just didn't work but I had nothing else to test.

So, I just bought the official DS4 bluetooth dongle and it works fine and it's currently the only way to be able to use the headphone jack in the controller but I usually don't use it because there's still no way to use bluetooth without emulating a 360 controller right now. The official dongle appears to also not be sold anymore on newegg, gamestop, or wal-mart and amazon has it for more than twice the price I paid for it and it's not available with prime anymore, so that may not be an acceptable solution. But I also bought a cheap 10 dollar bluetooth dongle and thought maybe my motherboard was broken or windows bluetooth didn't work but I tried it on a laptop and it still didn't work, so I bought the official dongle for 20 dollars and it just worked. Maybe just don't cheap out on the bluetooth dongle, I'm not entirely sure how to test this without a different computer and/or another bluetooth device to check.

Also there could be software problems if you're using ds4windows/inputmapper and not turning on exclusive mode. I've never had a problem with this but without exclusive mode windows will detect the ds4 on its own and the xinput wrapper for it as two separate inputs that may conflict with each other. So, make sure that the box for that is ticked and the program you use is updated. If the problem is for certain games it could be a problem with games that automatically switch from controller to keyboard/mouse like witcher 3 because if there's like a hair under your mouse it will constantly switch between the two which might cause your controller to feel like it's disconnected because the kb/m took control, though this is rare for games to have as a feature and probably not likely.

u/IsASarcasticBastard · 1 pointr/Steam

You can just use the charging cable, which is a usb/ micro usb cable. Or you can buy this.

u/Azurified · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

It needs to be plugged in unless you want to buy this, which makes it wireless. However, the wireless adapter also adds input lag.

u/FoN925 · 1 pointr/PS4

Here or here.

Be sure to read reviews and do some research on these things before buying one. I almost pre-ordered one before realizing I didn't need one after all.

u/RainbowGoddamnDash · 1 pointr/patientgamers

IIRC, there were certain brands that would work better with the DS4/DS3.

Like this one worked perfectly for me until my ps4 controller died

But now you can just get one of these from Sony themselves

u/Teknoxyn · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

Apparently it's no longer available so it looks like they are expensive... I would not recommend spending $40 on it... I think MSRP was 15ish when I bought it at Best Buy. You should be able to use a bluetooth adapter if your PC does not have it built in.

Again, here's what I use but I wouldn't buy it for this much.

u/kennyamr · 1 pointr/ffxiv

I am not sure about pairing it via bluetooth but I do use a cable USB and it recognizes it without any problem, I just need to set up the gamepad type in FFXIV's settings and I'm ready to go, no need for third party software.
Maybe I'm mistaken but I think you may need to buy the official Sony USB wireless adaptor for $21.49.
However, I think I heard you actually could connect it via bluetooth without it and make it work, again, not sure.

u/st0neh · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

It's not cheap but yeah, it's just another dongle.

u/RestInPieces2 · 1 pointr/techsupport

u/GenericSoundClouder · 1 pointr/Blackops4

you should use the strike pack from collective minds i use it and i feel its buttons are way better than the scuf ones, only down side is that the controller must be plugged in when you use it (PS4 XB1 )

u/Alpharettaraiders09 · 1 pointr/WWII

I would check out the FPS Dominator. Its essentially a $40 scuf. Its an attachment that goes on to your current controller..I have one, and its completly worth it. It has 2 easy to map paddles...Ive paired my right paddle to dropshot and my left paddle to jump.

Try that before you think about investing in a scuf.

They also have it for xbox one

u/NinJahseh · 1 pointr/FortNiteBR

This is a pretty reliable paddle attachment for your PS4 controller. I used this for Fortnite/COD when I had a PS4 (I mapped jump and build to them) and it’s a great cheaper option rather than paying over $100 for a controller with paddles.

Thumb stick extension for the right stick has been great, but personally the biggest change was adding this.

u/johannesdaaa · 1 pointr/FortNiteBR
u/CJ5426 · 1 pointr/MonsterHunter

if you are playing on PS4 I would highly recommend a strikepack. it adds 2 paddle buttons that go where your middle fingers rest on the controller handles and you can program them to do anything. I have always had trouble clicking down R3 and L3 so I programmed the 2 strikepack paddles to those and it had done wonders for me.

here's a link on amazon:

hope this helps!

u/brokenskullzero · 1 pointr/metalgearsurvive

if you have a Ps4 controller and the dexterity you can learn how to claw.


the dexterity comes in that you can just manipulate the dpad on the fly and swap back to index finger on the left trigger. hard to do on xbox. would just use a elite controller and have the top paddles to the weapons. (though i use right hand claw to manual command Kinsects in Monster world)

very useful technique when playing dark souls or the like to heal on the move


but. i rather use bottom paddles for movement options like crouch or dodges while being able to keep aiming than swap weapons.

u/jD3mo · 1 pointr/OWConsole

I play with Scuf controller myself because I prefer the paddles on the back. My fiancé is a co-owner of a professional eSports organization called Onslaught eSports and they're partnered with Cinch so she uses one of their team controllers that has buttons on the back and she loves it! I've owned a Battle Beaver custom controller in the past which also uses buttons on the back. Their buttons felt a little different than Cinch but I ended up returning it after a week and ordered a new Scuf after realizing I just honestly prefer the paddles.

On a side note, if you're looking to get a custom controller but don't want to shell out $130+ than I've heard people talking about this new product that has paddles that attaches to you stock PS4 controllers for only $40. Here's a link in case you haven't seen it yet.

u/lovaigne · 1 pointr/CruciblePlaybook

>I should add that I’m on PS4 specifically, so if an Xbox elite controller is a suggestion that’s unfortunately not an option

Try a strike pack. I've used mine for over a year now. Great durability, maps to whatever buttons you want, and won't break the bank.

u/theLULRUS · 1 pointr/Overwatch

Just bought one of these a couple days ago at GameStop, it's a sweet little mod pack for a standard ps4 controller that adds two paddles on the back that you hit with your middle fingers. You can assign the paddles to any button on the controller (besides L2 & R2). Works well, solid construction, fits very nicely on the controller. Makes me feel like a sweaty try-hard but I like it haha. Takes a little getting use to. But besides that no complaints yet, $43 well spent.

u/torchedEARTH · 1 pointr/PlayStationPlus

Hi, the SCUF isn't wired. I think it is basically a standard PS4 controller taken apart and the paddles added. You used to be able to send them a standard controller and they would add the paddles (for a price). I like the sound of that FPS Strikepack though, any idea if they can be bought in the UK?
Edit: ( ooh, you can! Nice looking piece of kit.

u/ferosferiogtr · 1 pointr/EliteDangerous

I haven't used scuf, but have used this, which two rear panels (i believe scuf has 4?) and is much cheaper, it just clips onto your DS4 (similar version available for xbox):

For me it was a game-changer, and why I still used gamepad instead of hotas (own both).

Requires some tinkering with your mappings to get the most mileage out of it though. But one of my best gaming purchases recently, by far.

also r/eliteps and if you're PS4 (no ideas xbox from me sorry)

I switched to Bumper Jumper when I came back to the game a couple months ago. Except for the occasional accidental super trigger I love it and it is totally natural now.

  • Sometimes "just one more hit" uses up the last of your stamina and you're defenseless

  • Drop your shield when you aren't in danger to regen your stamina.

u/FullFlava · 1 pointr/PS4

I'd recommend buying a new one - while the Dualshock 4 is a great controller, lots of users have had issues with the thumbsticks after a year or so of use. I take really, really good care of my stuff and I've been through 4 controllers in 3 years (including extending life via manual repairs)

Amazon sells them new for $47, a fairly significant discount from the MSRP, but you can probably find better deals. The newer controllers seem a bit more solid and durable than the ones I bought at launch.

u/sertitus · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I have a wired 360 pad (but /u/Vulfilla posted a link to the wireless one) and I can say that I am very happy with the ergonomics, I have an old one with both sticks on the bottom, like the Logitech, and I feel that the 360 layout of having one stick at the top is much more comforable.

You might consider an Xbox One Controller, which people describe as being even more ergonomic, or a PS4 Controller.

u/ahmadsal · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

I understand the low-volume argument, etc., but my point is, anything beyond EUR 150 is really pushing it. Of course, to buy or not is everyone's decision, the point is, would that be good for VR overall.

>Don't forget the cost of the mandatory camera and the virtually mandatory PS move controllers

that being said, you can easily find the camera for $30 or less

and the move controllers are optional, not required.

u/Dominicsjr · 1 pointr/PS4

That's the charging station that I use and it works perfectly. I keep right next to my console, it charges the controllers through the bottom ports. It'll require a separate outlet, but you'll no longer need a USB cable on hand.

u/BradleyB636 · 1 pointr/PS4

I use this one. I've had it for a couple years, no issues. Good rating per amazon.

u/vze3f372 · 1 pointr/PS4

Can you give more info? What ds4 charger? Have you tried charging with any unofficially supported charger? If you use a fast charger you can apparently break your ds4. I use a powerA charging doc and have never had a hiccup in more than two years.

u/monkey484 · 1 pointr/PSVR

Thanks. I looked at one similar to that. I don't like ones that use the microusb port for charging the DS4. Micro USB jacks are so flaky and weak. I much prefer the charging station that uses the aux jack thing instead.

u/MrRatt · 1 pointr/PS5

This is the charging station I use, but there are others that also charge from the bottom.

u/sarcasmbot · 1 pointr/PS4

I assume you are referring to this PowerA one?

If so, it's a great product. Have had mine for years with no issues. Would definitely recommend, especially for how cheap and convenient it is.

u/dandpher · 1 pointr/PS4

Get a charger that plugs into a wall socket. Here’s an example

PowerA DualShock 4 Charging Station for PlayStation 4

u/mcSibiss · 1 pointr/PS4

Do NOT buy the Biogenik PS4 Elite Charging Station. I bought it because I couldn't find the official sony charger. It sucks! Putting the controller on it is a real pain in the ass. You have to put the controller upside down and align the socket to the plug that sticks out, but the cradle is useless and doesn't guide you at all. So the plug is never aligned properly and won't fit in. Buy the official one or this one

u/hopscotchhero · 1 pointr/PS4

I use a charging dock and two controllers. I love the dock I got, it's $30 on Amazon.

> Q: is the adaptor universal? or can be use in 110 thru 220v?

> A: Not universal but can be used in 110 true 220v in my country(turkey) we use 220v and i do not have any problem about that. Great product, you should buy it.

From the page.

u/PS3RULZ13 · 1 pointr/PS4

must have games: Infamous, Killzone (because it's cheap and the graphics are amazing), Watchdogs (because the game is awesome).
Must have apps: netflix and ign
Must have accessories: the official sony DS4 controller charging.
I dont know how much you're willing to spend, but you should also eventually upgrade the hard drive in your PS4 to 1TB-2TB. it's very easy and it can cost to about $100.
also buy PS plus. you need it to play online and you get 2 free games every month from sony. It's worth your money,

u/Khaelum · 1 pointr/PS4

I've used this one for over a year now. Great product and very highly reviewed. Also it's officially licensed by Sony.

u/shoe710 · 1 pointr/PS4

You sure you have that one not this one?

Do your controllers face the same way or opposite directions?

u/foofad · 1 pointr/PS4

If it's a refurb there's a chance you might be getting first generation controllers. They're fine mechanically except that the thumbsticks were prone to wearing and then splitting and losing their rubber finish. You may want to get brand new controllers, they have a harder plastic finish on the thumbsticks instead of the rubberized plastic.

This is a really nice charging station for controllers:

I have it and it works very well. Other than that, save up for PSVR!

u/datopinion · 1 pointr/psn

Not sure if your heart is set on keeping that controller charger, but if not you could pick up something like this: They're affordable and it could be a more convenient setup.

Doesn't have to physically connect to the PS4, just to a wall outlet or other available USB outlet. That way you can keep your controllers on the end table or something and have your PS4's USB ports available.

If you do want to keep using that thing, nevermind and good luck.

u/MonsterTheGreatest · 1 pointr/PS4

I would recommend a charging station such as this (

u/AdonisChrist · 1 pointr/funny

Or spend the $15-20 on a charging station

Thing is the bomb.

Admittedly I mostly got it to use the "EXT" port on the front of my controllers.

u/Element0f0ne · 1 pointr/PS4

I use the Gold headset w/ dongle, and a wireless keyboard with dongle.

I use this USB adapter WITHOUT the power adapter plugged in. All 4 ports work fine using just the PS4 power:

I charge my controllers when not in use with this:

On the occasions I have to charge controller/headset while playing, I just purchased a long USB cable:

u/JustTurrble · 1 pointr/PS4

I didn't bother because I got the charging station, and don't use the cables at all.

Don't get me wrong, I completely understand the annoyance of not having the cables you need if you're not willing to spend the extra $35. It's kinda dickish.

Then again, I have enough devices that use MicroUSB to never worry about finding an extra.

u/skurk_dk · 1 pointr/PS4

I bet there's a couple of people in that thread with broken controllers now... That sucks.
I bought this, it works perfectly and is very convenient!

u/HatchetmanRalph · 1 pointr/PS4

Since new I have had this charger. Has never given me any issues with my 4 DS4's. If you only ever charged the controller with the USB port, and something between the port and the battery is fried this style charge stand may help out. I know there are issues with the charge cable getting pinched between the surface the controller is resting on and the controller itself, prying the USB port up, especially when the cable end is a bit longer than the stock charge cable.

Edit: just checked, bought it 3 years ago.

u/mrkingnothing · 1 pointr/PS4

I have 5 controllers, used by myself, my wife, a 3yo, 6yo, 9yo. I've replaced most of the thumb-sticks. Never had one R2 or L2 break. They frequently fall off things and don't break. I take them apart to clean the buttons when the kids inevitably spill something sticky on them. I lost one of the L2 springs one time while taking apart and simply ordered a pack of L2 R2 buttons (5 complete pairs) with springs for like $5 on amazon. They are fairly simple to repair once you get used to opening the case, the part over the triggers SUCK.
Edit: I do however need to order new usb boards for charging/syncing. We have two ps4s and having to plug in so frequently has worn out the ports. I do recommend the PowerA charger:

u/darkonex · 1 pointr/PS4

Have 5 DS4's and I have 2 of these I charge them on and never had an issue thus far

u/Scotsmania · 1 pointr/PS4

It's the Power A one.

I have it too and have had zero issues.

u/JonesBee · 1 pointr/gaming

Turn the speaker to low, lightbar on dim and get one of these. Zero battery problems after that.

u/Wescyde · 1 pointr/PS4

Good, thankfully it was an easy fix. If you have two controllers, you may look into the Power A Dual Charger, its a great charger and you would not have to use rest mode it just plugs into a wall and charges the controller through a different port. Have had mine 4 years now

u/off170 · 1 pointr/PS4

I know this is not your question, but I would recommend the PowerA charging station. You will not regret it.

As for your wall socket adapter. Anything over 1 A will work ok, I guess.

u/ZakaJr98 · 1 pointr/PS4

The Dualshock 4 charging station connects to that port, and Sonys VR headset should be plug in there...
This is the charging station:

u/life_andlimb · 1 pointr/PS4

Highly recommend this one. link

edit: sentence ambiguity

u/vr6mole · 1 pointr/PS4

I know it doesn't fix your problem but I picked up this dock and I love it

It just plugs into any wall outlet. Plus it looks nice enough that I can leave it on the entertainment center and not worry about hiding the controllers. You can even "rest" the controllers on top without clicking them in to charge.

u/koszorr · 1 pointr/PS4

This is what I have. 13 bucks..have had it for over a year no issues what so ever.
