DualShock 4 on PS4 – Is it Time for a Change?

As the DualShock has been the consistent PlayStation icon for many fans, the question that seems to be raised is ‘what will happen to it with each new generation?’ As rumors have once again sparked about a different DualShock 4, the Daily Reaction crew of Seb and Dan address the potential for changing the DS for the PS4.

Please no, I'm used to the DS3. Biometrics could be cool, but no touch stuff.

Yeah, keep the main design but don't mess it up too bad.

Definitely redesign the L2 & R2 triggers on the DS3...I hate the way they slant in..need them more like the dual shocks of old

I F$#KIN hate the L2 and R2 buttons on the DS3! such uncomfortable useless buttons and no matter how fast I push them, they still seem to go up and down really slow?!?!.

If they are gonna change the controller for PS4 then they should at least make the DS3 compatible with the PS4 as well. That way those that prefer DualShock can continue to use it.

Why not give console gamers a choice on which controller they want to choose.. its not hard.

Guys, wait until you see the new controller before moaning. I know its been 15 years and i appreciate after that long, change is hard. But things move on.

Sony have a good track record with controllers. Whatever they come up with, Im sure it'll be good.

Like the last one they came up with for PS3 and quickly threw out the window for DS3?

Here is a thought: Offer 2 variations of PS4 controllers!! Offer the standard dualshock 4, but then also blow us away with something new particularly for the bigger hands of adults.

I own PS1,PS2 and PS3 and I've always found the Gamecube and smaller Xbox1 controllers the most comfortable.

The Ps3 controller can cause pains in my hands after a few long hours of pressing in L3 while moving around in 1st person games. This is because the controller handles are too small and awkwardly slanted.

The joysticks need concave tops for more control so people aren't tempted to buy those little snap on things.

For shooters I believe the Xbox joystick placement is optimal, but i'm open to new layouts.

showtimefolks1918d ago

simple answer yes but change isn't always so good so maybe a make some changes but keep the main concept the same

everyone wants change till it happens than every day will be articles about how the old controller was so much better

i am happy with DS3 as i was with DS1 and 2

Blackdeath_6631918d ago

no, a new controller is good if they give you the option to use the ps3 controller on the ps4. that way you get the best of both worlds. see, change not always so bad.

NO! I use my DS3 for everything... Even my PC gaming!

Root1918d ago

They just have to update it, sort some things out here and there to make it even better and they'll be good to go

Relientk771918d ago

I love the Dualshock controller, and if they didnt change it, I would love it

boybato1918d ago

perfect controller in my opinion.. nice button layout (though I guess, its just because I am soooooo used to it.), nice form factor.

only change I would request to be had would be that they modify the part of housing that holds the analogue sticks wherein I wish it would be like whats in the vita(encased in a piece of metal to avoid chipping)
