Crafty PS4 User Mods Xbox One Thumb Sticks on His DualShock 4; Reports Perfect Compatibility

on April 12, 2014 3:26 AM

Controllers are mostly a matter of personal preference, and there are gamers willing to go the extra mail to get just the perfect experience from their primary gaming tools. That’s exactly what Reddit user TheTurboFD did.

He evidently liked the thumb sticks of the Xbox One controller more than the stock ones on his DualShock 4, so he ordered a pair on Amazon, popped his controller open and dropped the new sticks in, as you can see in the picture below. Quoting his own words, it was “well worth it.”

Way better than the default sticks. It became easier to aim in games like COD and MGS.

The best thing? They’re perfectly compatible, making the modding job extremely easy and the result perfectly functional.

No squeaking at all and they just popped right in.

While I’m sure your mileage may vary on which sticks are better for the controller, we have to tip our collective hat to this kind of initiative and simple creativity.
