Looking around in the fan forums and the gaming community, we’ve seen a lot of conversations devoted to the fact that the peripheral just recently two back paddle button – as opposed to four.
Many premium controllers, including the Xbox Elite Series 2, include four configurable back buttons. This obviously allows you to assign two additional commands to your controller, allowing for more flexibility. This is especially true if you plan to use the pad on a PC, for example, where you may want additional keys to bind to shortcut keys and other commands.
When Sony releases Back Button Attachment for DualShock 4, it just adds two paddles to the back of the pad as well, so it definitely feels good enough. For us personally, all we want to do is assign a sprint to one of the back buttons, so we don’t have to press L3 again. Are you disappointed with the reduced number of paddles? Let us know below.
