    PICKnMIX button configuration Poll.

    What button configuration makes more sense when cycling up and down through games?

    The thinking on option 1 is given 'A' is the primary button it should advance game (A=advance). 'B' is for previous game (B = Back).

    The thinking behind option 2 is it makes the buttons act like turning the pages of a book. So 'A' = back (previous page), 'B' = forward (next page).

    Which do you prefer for cycling up and down through games given a preferance?

    Both me and rockstarrunner have used it daily and both think the A = previous B = next is better. Although I would prefer that it has to be always chosen from the menu pressing the A button and then with joystick or using c & d buttons as the A button results often to accidental change of the games.

    I went with A for next game and B for back

    Just seems natural to me but I can see why the other way would work just as well

    Ok, so I'm finally clear to say I've been testing V4 for a while, and A for Back, B for Next is what I instinctively expect. If you look at general UI design in every day life, left control is previous, right control is next.

    A for Advance, B for Back. For us mnemonic learners.

    A for forward and B for Back. Primarily, we would be moving forward and having A as the forward seems to make more sense.
