An update from Sony last year allows players to now change the button layout they use for the PS4.
While this feature was mainly released for disabled video-gamers, who can't reach certain buttons, it can also be useful for certain games.
Unfortunately, the PS4 does not offer the ability to switch through preset button layout schemes, so you have to individually assign buttons yourself.
Step By Step Guide:
- From the home screen, press up and then Select "Settings"

From here you can remap your buttons to your liking. You can swap the "X" button with the "L1" if you so desire.
There are a few buttons you can't reassign though and they are the PS button, Select, and Start buttons.
