          If you scramble ABXY you can write "BYXA", that sounds the same as "fag" in heuhehuzilian Portuguese. That's also gay...
          But Portugal bros will just read it as "line" (of persons, cars, etc.).

      Who in the history of gamin has ever been confused about the face buttons on a PS? The only one that even has an alternative name is "X" since you can say "Eks" (Western) or "Cross" (Japanese), but everyone knows that both of those refer to the same button.

        Playstation just works perfectly as it is

        The Nintendo ones are not axis. They're just letters. The order is alphabetical, starting in A and rotating clockwise you get A, B, Y, X. The Z buttons are relegated to the secondary L and R buttons, usually the triggers.

        Notice that on the N64 there were 4 C buttons, on the GC there was a C stick and on the Wii there was a C shoulder button.

        With Nintendo it's always been alphabetical except for the Wii's 1 and 2 buttons.

    Nintendo uses Japanese format of bottom to exit, right to confirm. Xbox uses western format of bottom to confirm, right to exit. That's why A and B are switched. Meanwhile "press X to attack" just feels more natural than "press Y to attack". So I'd say Xbox, and that's as someone whose first console was SNES.

        For face buttons, Nintendo should be the standard simply because they were the ones to set that standard in the first place. PS was easy enough to learn, but it difficult to relay verbally. They set a good naming convention for L and R as well. Xbox feels like they went out of their way to be confusing in every aspect.

          They figured it out eventually. The worst one to me was when they tried that whole black and white button on the xbox hueg. I would def say as far as shoulder button labels go PS>xbox>Nintendo. Otherwise nintendo has the face buttons 100% right. Now if we can just get them to ditch these fucking share and screenshot buttons.

        that makes no sense. that's by far the worst of them all. there's no indication what L1 or 2 or 3 even is. nintendo has ZL/ZR and you know Z is the trigger and L/R is left or right. xbox is easily the most sane approach because they call each button what it actually is. LB/RB is right/left bumper, RS/LS is right/left stick, LT/RT is right/left trigger. it's so simple. i remember being a kid and playing PS2 and couldn't for the life of me figure out what the fuck L3 was because there's no indication or marking for it. at least with something like press RS it's simple to understand right stick.

          I literally hate Sony's layout from its stick placement to its button labels, but even I'm willing to admit L1 and L2 makes way more sense than some newer button scheme that nintendo has been doing. I'm old enough to say I've been playing shit since the Atari 2600, so I've seen my fair share of controllers. ZR and ZL is fucking dumb. And even if it were to make sense, why isn't ZR and ZL on the top instead of on the triggers?

    Nintendo is the most retarded. They bother using both X and Y and then put X on vertical axis and Y on the horizontal axis. The easiest to reach button should always be the confirm/interact button in the form of A. Sony tried to be different but I think O should be a check mark since it is approve while X is used to cancel. They should also be swapped.

      Because then every television and monitor owned by every single person who owns the controller would have to be put on a north-facing wall. If any one person puts their television or monitor on any of the other three walls, the cardinal directions on the controller are now wrong. That's a stupid fucking idea. "North" doesn't just mean "whichever direction I happen to be facing forward; it is not a relative direction.

    As an idort it pisses me off when the game I'm playing says something like "Press Y" and I'm having to look at the controller like a retard because it's always in a different place on every system.

    Games need to just leave out the abstract A/B/X/Y icons altogether since they're never consistent from platform to platform, and just use an icon that indicates the button positioning like picrel.

    Overall the best design is the one you are most familiar with. People claiming certain designs are better cause "le X-axis is on the horizontal so smart!" don't realize nobody sits there reading there controller, taking the time to apply some logic to it. It is the same kind of people who praise Celsius because "bro it makes so much sense cause it is based on water boiling, so genius!!!"

    What symbol is on the button is fucking irrelevant. The worst shit about the layout is that nintendo feels extra special and always has to switch around the accept/decline button.

            If we are talking about pure autism then there is literally no other place for triangle than on the upper place. Literally none, it can't be anywhere else. Square and circle look best next to each other, theoretically their places could be exchanged though. And if these have to be next to each other then X needs to be at the lower spot.

    no button labels. then there will be no argument about what they're called.

    when the game wants to show you which button to press, it can show a picture of the controller with that button highlighted. maybe they could also blink an led inside the button on the controller.

    This would probably be easier for newer players who are always looking at the controller and can't remember which button goes where.

    I swear I've seen people give up on games forever when they ask a question, I tell them press the square button, they stare at the controller, turn it around, reading every button, and then they're still not sure which one it is.

    Oh, the square button was actually this circular button with a square label? Not one of the 4 buttons that are actually square? How was I supposed to know?

    Even the xbox has two x buttons.

    The only disadvantage would be when talking about the games online.

      The what they're called argument is a non issue, no one is asking what the hell someone means when they say ex and pretty much everyone is going to say ex over cross and people who say otherwise are just trying to be different. Cross has more than one interpretation, it also looks like this, , while there's no confusion with ex, no one's going to be looking at their dualshock and thinking "wait, this has 45 degree angles, it can't be the ex he's referring to!"

    Probably snoy just becaust shapes are universal symbols, while letters are not.
    Outside of that, the x-bone one cause x is on the x axis, y is on the y-axis, and the confirm button is at the bottom.
    I would personally prefer the X and B buttons switched though, so you can press either one without changing your thumb position-- having the main two buttons be aligned, and having the other two buttons be aligned just makes more sense.

  68. 1 week ago

    It's just occurred to me that the placement of the letters are entirely down to the way each country reads. Microsoft has X then Y because we read left to right while Nintendo has B first then A because they read right to left. Sony's symbols win in terms of universal understanding though, the triangle (mountain) being at the top visually is more memorable than a random and arbitrary X or Y getting top billing and square and circle facing each other is also visually more intuitive than Y and A or X and B which don't follow on from each other at all. Who plays with a diagonal mindset anyway? I've always played crossways (up down, left right) which makes more sense given symmetrically it mirrors how you think about the d-pad.

    Playstation is the only one to have unique identities for the buttons rather than forcing you to remember another position for the letters. It made sense why early controllers used letters or numbers but the PS1 just works better for the four button layout.

        Something about the modern color-on-black Xbox buttons (alongside Nintendo and nuSony's monochrome buttons) just looks so... soulless to me (sorry but that's the best succinct way I can describe the feeling I get). To put it simply, the modern button prompts all feel like they took a page out of modern website graphic design, or better yet, smartphone app design. Very simple 2-color affairs with either bright basic ROYGBIV colors or black/gray/white.

    I think shapes is the right way to go as this easily defeats the association with certain buttons having the same name across multiple systems.
    Having a system that is completely different and button prompts that are as clean and simple as the playstation ones is probably why i was such a huge fan (up until the ps4). The spacing of the buttons is right on nintendo and sony consoles but i think xbox buttons at times can be a little too close together, the steam deck face buttons are a little too small for my thumbs but they feel nicer than literally every official xbox controller i've ever held.
    If i could have it my way every game console would just have their own retard way of naming buttons and every game would just have the option for custom button prompts that would just be inside of the controller's bios or something.

    That argument is retarded because they have used a lot of different controllers. The last time before Switch they used the "standard" was SNES. Then they had different controllers: the N64 controller, then the Gamecube, then the Wii, and only finally returned to the normal ABXY layout during Switch. By the time of Xbox and 360, the Nintendo "standard" was no longer a standard because even Nintendo stopped using it.

        All of you are just deflecting from the obvious truth that by the time Xbox came around the "standard" was long gone already. To argue that Microsoft was wrong to do something else is absurd. Hell, Nintendo using different layouts for the N64 and Gamecube is almost proof itself that Nintendo felt like there were more intuitive layouts. This is shown by the fact that the A button is prominently positioned on both the 64 and Gamecube instead of simply being awkwardly on the right side of four buttons

      It would've been the other way around. Nintendo pulled out of the deal at the last second because they didn't think to read their contract with Sony or inquire into it until it came time to sign the damn thing, where they found that Sony was going to absolutely rape them on game royalties and IP usage rights if it went through.

      Sega's 6-button layout (and not the offset tiny black/white buttons on Xbox OG, I mean a proper Genesis Arcade Pad/Saturn 6-button layout).

    Nintendo: A and X represents two rows positioned on the resting position of your thumb, as A is the lower row, next to it we have B, as X represents the upper row, next to it you have Y.
    Playstation: Every button is a representation of context, Circle means confirm, X(cross) means cancel, square is a Menu and Triangle means top, usually used for First Person View in 3D games.
