With regard to PS4 controllers, we can sometimes assume that there is only one option: Sony's DualShock 4.
However, even though the official controller is a dynamic and powerful gamepad, there are many other options available if you want to improve your gaming experience (or just make it a little more comfortable).
We have compiled this list of the best PS4 controllers on the market for everyone, from casual players to budding professionals. and even some options for those who only want a bit of nostalgia, instead of despair over the right weight, movement control and shared access.
We've put together the best drivers we've tested and reviewed for our list – but it's also added in a couple of other people below who caught our attention to give you a little more variety and choice about it.
(If you want to update the power of your console, be sure to check out our best PS4 Pro offer page – and if you want something better to play, then our best PS4 game list is, well, just perfect for your needs.)
Many are officially licensed by Sony, so you will know that they are designed to work well, but all the options on this list are the ones we would gladly discard under our game settings .
1. Sony DualShock 4 wireless controller
Highly sensitive motion sensors
Sometimes it feels a bit too light
The track pad has shortcomings
Although we said There Many options out there that are not the DualShock 4, it would be difficult to create a list of the best PS4 drivers without pointing out that it is still the main option.
The DualShock 4 is perfect for its purpose: elegant, small and wireless. Not to mention the built-in speaker, the different colors of light bar, touch pad and motion detection that enhance your gaming experience.
It is also extremely simple to connect a headset or gaming headset to the controller (as opposed to the Xbox One controller). However, battery life can be a nuisance, since the controller maintains the charge for approximately four to eight hours.
We found that it is better to have two and always keep a load or invest in a charging base so you can load both at the same time (when you are not playing, of course).
We believe that DualShock is an excellent PS4 Controller for someone who simply wants to keep playing and doesn't care about bells and whistles. If you want to enhance your classic black color, then the controller comes in many other colors and designs.
