Will Sony really retire the DualShock with the onset of the PlayStation 4 and the next generation? Or could they down the Wii U route?
make an anti grease formula embedded on every dualshock 4 so the controller wont get messy. i dunno...-_-
If they are planning on adding a touch pad, hopefully they put in where the Select, Start, and home buttons currently are and make that space a bit bigger. Move the select, start, and home buttons to the fold like the Razer Sabertooth since they're buttons you don't use often during gameplay. http://www.ign.com/articles... Please don't put the touch pad on the back. On top of that they could add 1GB of memory into the controller so you can save screen shots, or gameplay videos, game saves, and more to the controller, and view them back on the pad. Unless they can allow you to save all that to the cloud now.
naah i believe sony knows better than to completely change the design of the controller. i love the controller they can put about 1 or to new things but nothing to drastic want them to keep the overall same design and comfort of the dualshock. i actually don't mind if they dont change it at all and just put that money into the ps4 lol
and to say the may go down the route of the wii u is an insult.
Actually its looking more likely that it will go down the Wii U route in some way, maybe not exactly, but having a screen on a main controller could definitely happen.
If they only make better triggers I'm satisfied. The controller is already great.
That, and increase it's size by about 10%. Now THAT would be perfection.
but...the new controller will completely move away from the dualshock design according to sony. there won't be a dualshock 4. i still don't understand why sony is trying to fix something that isn't broken. most playstation fans agree that the dualshock3 is great so changing it is a gamble not worth taking IMO. i hope they at the very least allow you to use the ps3 controller on the ps4 that way i can decide for my self if i want to change. it will be pretty interesting to see the reaction when it is revealed and when people actually use it. i get the feeling that the new controller will probably feel better than it looks, some ergonomic keyboards and mice for example look absolutely crazy but are quite amazing when you actually use them thats why i hope people don't pass judgement too quickly.
When did Sony say this?
well they didn't exactly say so directly but it has been rumoured on various site including this one. “has undergone numerous iterations, few of which resemble the DualShock” http://www.officialplaystat... http://www.computerandvideo... http://www.psu.com/a018037/...
They really need to fix those analogs. That's my biggest gripe with the DS3.
Whatever they decide will be amazing. Sony has never failed to impress with their controller designs. I have never had a bad thing to say about any of the DualShocks.
well said my fellow killzoner
They really don't need change the dualshock at all besides making the r2 and l2 triggers other than that the controller is perfect for me.
I've loved the ds since 1999 and don't have a problem with it still. It's part of the playstation heritage. i also hope they bring the colored ps logo back too. And for old times sake, it would be cool if ps4 had a modern take on the old ps1 boot up screen. There's something magical about that old sound that melts my soul.
Did the article even suggest anything? I read it but it didn't really relate to its title, which is a shame.
a prediction: If they change the Dualshock there will be articles galore complaining about it. If the don't change the Dualshock there will be articles galore complaining about it. Can't wait.
Agree, People will always complain. I think the only changes that need to be done with the controller is the L2 and R2 triggers need to have and outward curvature.
i'd love some leds lights so the buttons light up in the dark
If they do decide to make large modifications to the controller, they could just simply allow people to connect a PS3 controller to the PS4 too.
They won't change the dualshock, maybe adding something. Sony knows that the core fans want to keep the dualshock, maybe they will make a new controller, but keeping the dualshock. A dualshock/move hybrid?
Leave it alone. P.S. just The Triggers
It's a good controller...as long as you have small hands, don't like triggers in fps games or racers and like slippery convex analog sticks...
It needs the Vita's DPad. That is a must for fighting games.
