Ability to swap X and O buttons

Idea 74750 | Posted in , , by | May 25, 2015

On my PS4 the X and O buttons do opposite things from what I’m used to previously. There should be a setting to swap the functions of these buttons so users can use whichever settings they prefer.

You can already do that. It’s under accessibility in settings.

Button remapping affects even the games, right?

It sucks that doing it through accessibility affect the games too.

My friend bought a white PS4 from Japan, his X and O are flipped on dashboard, but regular in-game. So this would be a good addition.

    Or maybe next time your friend could buy a console from the appropriate region next time? Why should Sony ignore all the good suggestions here to waste time implementing something useless? You know going into buying a Japanese console what to expect, it just happens to be somewhat region free, doesn’t mean everything is going to function the same, and tbh is your “friends” own fault.

I think it would be a good idea. I bought attack on titan for psVita and when it came out here, I kept forgetting that they swapped the buttons. makes it a bit annoying sometimes. if you played FFVII, the buttons are the same as the Japanese version (O=ok, X=cancel) and I’m sure there were many people here who wished they could swap them then. it would be nice to have the option to switch the ok and cancel buttons for games from japan too.
