12:00 Yes, that's the Standard of PS Controllers nowadays since Sixasis-DS3 if I'm not wrong.

Compare it to a ps4 controller... I feel like not much has changed and that's why they are so similar.

that smoke gray controller was an add-on model. the original PlayStation 1 and PS ONE only game with Light Gray and White with the actual systems. also the ps1, ps2, and ps3 controllers are so similar. that 90% of the mold and parts are the same.

Wonder if you could fit a OTG USB and a small thumb drive inside the controller for a discreet way to mod the console.

latency because of the wire... really ? electron signal propagation of voltage change is near speed of light! so lag i think not! most if not all lag in controllers is caused because of data processing, and not voltage propagation.

Can you get the new playstation classic and plug it into a ps4 and play games such as street fighter? Or anything simple without analogs? Just curious

The construction of the new controller is much more similar to the old ps2 dualshock controllers (I've messed around with hacking them to be used for other things so I've taken a few apart) than it is to the old ps1 controllers.

Nice comparison video, but I wonder if the newer PlayStation controllers have any of the newer stuff the PS Classic controller has.

I honestly don’t know why they bothered with this, I’ve been taking controllers apart to repair them for about 15 years and have taken the original apart, they’re basically all still made the same way with a membrane switch on each button.

Old Design is better. You don't want any flex in the contacts. Not to mention how horribly those thin plastic circuit boards failed in items like automotive gauge clusters. those traces will have micro fractures in no-time because every time you hit the button the plastic flexes.

If you think PS1 controller (which doesn't have vibration) is gross, wait till you take apart PS2 controller (which has vibration)...

There is surprisingly little value engineering of that newer PCB, kinda has the hallmark of something that was rushed out and they didn't bother optimizing out the micro usb, getting rid of that flat flex connector, and replacing the qfp with a blob chip. Seems like they either really rushed this out or didn't expect to be selling these in quantity that those extra costs would matter

*Concerned about the hygiene of the controller* --> Touches it with bare hands before cleaning, puts it on the mat (which is probably more dirty than what the controller is), spreading what-ever germs you were concerned about.

You really need to learn the terminology, get over the fear of germs and cut out a lot of the rambling that you do. This was a waste if 20mins and my data.

The one he is comparing it to is an original, albeit possibly an aftermarket shell. My PS1 had an official controller with it that was red.

The games are the only thing old and even then they are still enjoyable. I'll admit $100 much considering the flaws the hardware/emulator has though.

I like the construction of the new one but I really hate those printed ribbon pcb's because they rot. I have plenty of PS2 controllers with bad printed ribbon pcb's, some of which I fixed with conductive carbon paint. Dualshock PSone named controllers also use the newer design with the printed ribbon pcb's.

The original controller changed a lot between the Dual Shock 2 and 3 revisions. The new classic controller adopts a lot of the changes from the Dual Shock 2. I've had to take apart plenty of PS controllers, since fighting games really tears them up. If I remember correctly, that cross bar on the original controller was used until the later Dual Shock 3 controllers. I remember the first time opening up a replacement controller, and not seeing it. Great, considering they would usually break, leaving the d-pad to fall deeper into the controller than necessary. Seems like the PS Classic controller is basically the newest Dual Shock 3, except with the vibration and sticks removed.
