To hype us a little bit more, the exact look of the PlayStation 4 console itself is nowhere to be found. Instead, Sony gives us a preview for the new PS4 controller.
According to the Official Sony Press Release, DUALSHOCK®4 incorporates a new highly sensitive six-axis sensor, as well as a touch pad located on the front of the controller.
DUALSHOCK®4 features a light bar on the top with three color LEDs that illuminate
in various colors to identify players, even when playing side by side. The light bar also changes patterns during gameplay to provide useful information to gamers, such as when a character is critically low on health or has taken major damage.
DUALSHOCK®4 will come with a built-in speaker and stereo headset jack, enabling PS4 users to enjoy high-fidelity sound effects of games from both the TV and also from the controller. Gamers will also be able to chat with friends playing online, while hearing sound effects from the controller in hand.
In addition, the “START” and “SELECT” are now integrated into the “OPTIONS” button, while DUALSHOCK®4 is newly equipped with a “SHARE” button to further enhance PS4’s social capabilities.
So, what do you guys think of the new PlayStation 4 controllers? Are they changed for the better? Sound off below.
