Hi all,

I currently play Tekken 7 on PC with my keyboard. I wanted some feedback from those who have used both Xbox One S controller and Dual Shock 4, which one is better for Tekken 7 specifically?
I already own a One S controller but I find quarter circle movements difficult on it. I used to own PS one and played Tekken 3 on it all the time and found the PS controller well suited for the game.
So, should I sell my One S controller for a DS4?
Is there a difference between DS4 and its 2016 rev version? Is it easily supported on windows 7? Are there any features besides the touch pad that I will lose when using DS4 on PC.
I prefer connecting controller with micro USB so lack of Bluetooth is no big deal. Thanks in advance.

Get the DS4 for fighters, many pros use the ds4. The light bar version (v2) has better button/triggers quality and the thumb grip is much better and won't be torn as quickly as the one on the old controller did. The only thing that i don't like on the new controller is that it has grey buttons instead of being black which is an objective thing. The latency is also better on the newer model iirc. As for the support on windows and stuff you can use DS4Windows.

P.S: I use the newer ds4 on pc too for fighters, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The new DS4 with light bar on touch pad is better than old DS4. I have used both and felt the new DS4's Dpad more comfortable while executing moves. The weight is also good and gives you good grip.
Also its lag free. I am using BT 3.0 device to connect my DS4 and there isn't any lag.

I play Mishimas and Hwoarang on new version of DS4 (execution heavy characters), and I'm pretty consistant with movement, just frames, diagonals etc. I think it's pretty solid for fighters. I used xbox one controller once for MKX, I think it's good but DS4 is definitely way better imo.

Hmmmm, I too play Kazuya and couldn't get a single EGWF using the One S controller. I manage to hit it with the keyboard about 30 percent of the time.

Anyways, thanks all for your feedback. I am sure to sell my One S controller for DS4 new version.

One thing though, how to tell the revised version from the old version of DS4? I am planing to buy it online on black Friday sale so I need pointers to check using the images as seller may not have pictures of the serial number. [MENTION=38055]Yasir Nadeem[/MENTION] did mention gray color of buttons, but are there any other visual differences?

The biggest difference (i say it cause it confirms that the controller is the newer one) is the light bar in the touchpad while physical difference is only the grey buttons.

    and wired latency on the ds4 is probably an all time worse in any controller. you can check that thread your friend made with the charts in it

  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    and lithium ion batteries do degrade... your controller will not last for the same time as it did 3-4 years ago. thats just a fact.

    theek hai bhai, aapko hi issue tha that literally NO ONE prefers external batteries, which is false.

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    so my experience has nothing been positive with internal batteries

    and like I've said before, I have a 10 year old DS3 and 4 year old DS4, neither have died out or stopped charging yet.

    I think thats WAYYY more than the 4-8 hours the DS4 does
    a full charge DS4 lasts 8~10 hours depending on usage, and you can always play and charge at the same time, i find that a lot more convenient than needing to replace AA batteries.

    according to you that poll should've been 100% in favor of external batteries. so much for being the "objectively" better thing

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    I'll let it go when you stop making bad correlations here :p

  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    both have pros and cons i guess... but im not the only who prefers external batteries. and theres only one controller that gives you the option to use both methods

    as the owner of a 10 year old but still charging ds3, this is a lot less likely to happen tab spending tens to hundreds of dollars on batteries.
    let it go man. the poll already proved you wrong lol
