Has anyone come across any information regarding the controller configuration options? In GTAIV there were the Standard and Classic controller configurations. I'm very curious, and slightly concerned that the same may not hold for GTAV.

I'm one of those people that just cannot get to grips with using the left and right triggers to control cars and hellicopters. It is just too unnatural for me, preferring the use of one thumb on the accelerater and brakes - A & X (the same way I use only my right foot for the accelerator and brake pedals when driving), leaving the left hand to concentrate solely on the steering.

If the option to change to the Classic configuration isn't there, this will seriously affect my enjoyment of the game.

Once you get used to it, standard controls are much better and easier

What are you doing playing HD GTAs with a and x as brake and accelerate?

Get with the times. 360 has near perfect trigger functions.
I could understand if you were talking about PS3.

Let me get this right - You use your foot to drive because its natural. you enjoy having complete control with how much pressure you apply to the accelerator and the brake.

Yet - to control the cars in the game, both brake and accelerator - you want a single button that is either 100% on or 100% off?

No, they aren't. I had a bugger of a time coping with the driving controls in Sleeping Dogs, Test Drive Unlimited and LA Noire with the trigger controls. Couldn't win any of the races using the triggers.

Also had a nightmare with the trigger controls in Forza: Horizon and GTAIV - I hated the driving in GTAIV at first it was too uncontrollable, until I realised that I could change the config to Classic (in both of those games) - the nightmare left and everything became instinctive once I'd switched and started loving the driving in IV and Horizon.

Yes, that's pretty much what I wrote, which part of that was difficult to understand? I'm not too sure what you mean by 100% on and off in IV, but I never had any difficulty in acceleration and throttle with the buttons, the triggers felt too loose. The buttons, as far as I'm concerned, felt pressure sensitive to me, the more pressure placed on the A button, the greater the acceleration, and it was easy to maintain a steady speed.

Learn to write properly.

Is everyone on her a complete idiot? I ask a simple question, expecting a civil answer, and the only replies on here seem to be from a bunch of cretins criticising somebody for finding one controller setup more comfortable and natural than another. FFS grow up!

Dont know how you enjoy using X & A to accelerate and brake, you cant control your speed like that because once you push the button it goes full throttle whereas if you use the triggers you can control the speed perfectly.
But to each his own, I dont think this option will still be there.

I didn't even know that option was there in GTA IV. Not that I would use it.

Interesting. I, like others, am surprised you prefer the face buttons (which are digital) as opposed to the triggers (analog). I could never get into PC versions of these kind of games for that reason... Keyboard keys don't feel like they give me the proper throttle control necessary to pull off slick maneuvers.

Back on topic, I feel confident Rockstar will provide a range of controller customization options, but then again... they have a lot of functions they're squeezing onto the controller, so there may be certain ones that aren't movable. Hope for the best!
