Local play wired ps4 issues


So im having a really hard time trying to figure out how to play local 2 player with a friend. Both our controllers are wired. It seems to rwcognise one wired controller but not the 2nd. Same problem with fight stick aswell. This on ps4 so i gave up trying to set it up. Works fine on ds4. Any ideas how to set this up?


Tried logging into separate accounts on each controller and it still doesnt recognise player 2
