So I moved over from a ps4 to xbox1 (I've always been a ps guy up until I really wanted to try the legends on fifa).
I found a big difference on my game play when using both controllers. I have a cronusmax dongle that allows me to play with a ps4 controller on the xbox1.
What I found with the PS4 controller - Easier to play the passing game with and defend,
Xbox 1 controller - Bigger but easier to dribble with and pull off skill moves but played a less passing game. Harder to defend maybe do to the size of the controller and pressing multiple buttons at once.
It's weird for one half I played with the ps4 controller and all I was doing was passing with the odd skill move here and there. If felt as is if the sticks aren't as sensitive whilst dribbling and would often run in straight lines. Then the second half I used the xbox1 controller, the sticks felt very sensitive and I was able to actually dribble for once in all angles and go on runs...My passing game was cut and all i found myself doing was dribbling and skilling. I did try and play the passing game but it just didn't work out with the xbox1 controller.
I prefer the ps4 controller, maybe because i've used it for a very long time and not used to the xbox1 controller. But the point i'm making is both controllers changed the way I actually played, weird or what!
