    This is for playing games on my PC. Trying my luck by googling it, but I can't find a clear answer. I've been looking for a while, and I want to know how diagonal presses work on the PS4 D-pad. I use a Nintendo Wii classic controller pro, and doing a diagonal on that thing is hard since I have to press harder on it to safely press both buttons since the D-pad is longer and thinner, and that makes the buttons to click on the d-pad even further away from each other. I preferred the smaller cross d-pads much more, like the ones used in the Nintendo Handheld consoles. I even prefer the 360 D-pad over the long and thin Nintendo ones. Just for the hell of it, how does the GameCube d-pad compare? people say it's small, but I actually prefer it when it's small.

    How does the PS4 controller play with the diagonal presses? Is the D-pad as long and thin as the newer Nintendo controllers?

    Thank you!

    Loaded up zsnes with lttp, diagonals seem fine to me. For you tho i think you should get to walmart or somthing and test one out.... Also you know with a ps4 conttroller as far as i know you gotta use ds4tool still = load it up every time, and wired unless you got a compatible bt dongle.
