The first came last night, the second today.
All jump aboard the Hype Train!
@remanutd Yep and then we have internet meltdown thing I'm most happy about is the mic and headfone Jack on the controller...now everyone who has a ps4 can chat online if they want..
whoa that looks way different from the one from yesterday. It's less bulky. I like it, it looks sleek and sexy. yeah this thing looks like a tank compared to the one above. http://i.imgur.com/2WKOLfb.... All aboard....all aboard....all aboard..the hype train. ^^ http://youtu.be/pLSX4sjLY4o...
5 long days! Can't wait! nice controller btw.
Everyone who wanted to chat on a PS3 already could. I prefer a Blu-tooth headset a wired mic & headseat. But if it doesn hurt why not. I think the D-pad buttons are a bit too close together. The Dual-Shock wasn't broken. That's why people revolted when they talked about changing it in the run-up to the PS3 release. The new controller should be as close to that as they can get it while adding whatever new functionality fits their plan.
I like the controller but the way the start selevt buttons are place i think should be moved cant wait for the 20th!
added more contrast to reveal a bit more detail. http://i.imgur.com/m61ZDgV....
I just hope there isnt a light on the controller and something like this http://oi49.tinypic.com/2cr...
very reminiscent of the 3DO controller. Given the option between the two prototypes that have been shown. This one with twin sticks and the touchpad above vs the one with the twin sticks removed and the touchpad in place of them... I actually can see more potential in the touchpads are replacements for the twin sticks. The sticks themselves offer directional movement and the "click" to activate something. Yet put the touchpads in as a replacement and you can still have directional movement and the press to activate but also other functions can be programmed for the touch pads. It would certainly feel more natural using the thumbs down lower instead of reaching up (if the pad were above like in the one controller) or trying to use the index fingers to reach over. I know many probably hate the idea of touch pad as a replacement for the sticks but they are associating that feeling with the current way it is offered on phones or tablets. This is SONY we are talking about. im sure they would be able to improve the feel to the point of it being more responsive and comfortable than existing designs.
I actually hope those buttons at either side are start and select. 1. It would free up room on that trackpad 2. I think it would be a more comfortable placement for them (Going off roughly the same position on the current DS)
No offense but this controller looks cheap and nasty. If the final design looks like this then i will be very disappointed. It looks like a madcatz or logitech controller or something.
@Dom - 1. It's a prototype 2. Everything always looks better when you see it first hand and not off some random camera phone images. Case in point, PS3 Slim (standard), looks much better in person than in pictures. Everyone's entitled to their opinion though. I'm pretty sure people said the same thing about the original Xbox 360 controller, because it does look quite childish in terms of colours etc., but when you play with it you realise that it works. Same will be the case with this. The grips look longer than in the other image, something which I am very glad about. I REALLY really hope this is the real controller, because it looks perfect imo, it takes everyone's gripes about the DS3, and improves upon it dramatically.
I don't care what anyone says...That prototype looks very very comfortable. Bring it... I just hope rear triggers are concave and not convex like dualshock 3...
That is one sexy bitch.
4 days and some hours!
If this... http://i0.wp.com/readwrite.... is the final design, I would sleep with the controller every night. Though I very much doubt it as I'm sure Sony would want to implement a concave thumbsticks rather than convex.
NO, IT'S CHOO CHOO!!! My inner 5 year old is screaming.
I wished they hand an angle taken from the back....so we could see the R2/L2 buttons
Hope they are Concave like the Wii's one and 360's one. The triggers are literally the only thing I don't like about the Ps3 controller. I can live with Convex again either way but i'd prefer the concave ones
I can't wait! It looks like the original Ps controller - I REALLY like that!
is that a headphone jack beneath the playstation button.nice if it is .
Chooo Chooo!! I love it xD
Can't hype cuz this onelooks cgi
"All jump aboard the Hype Train! " The bestest train ever!! Can't wait for MS & bungie to reveal destiny! I want to see what I will get on ps4
Slowing trying to be xbox 360 controller most comfy and undefeated controller. Apart from its dpad which was fixed with the special dpad twisting controller. Exciting to see final controller these ones look like cheap madcatz controllers.
that angle makes it look completely different. I wonder how bit it is...gotta be wider than the dualshock.
I'm guessing left side is wider than right side to get feedback from the devs etc and see which one feats better? ooh pls someone use the funny hitler scene to make fun of M$ after the 20th lol i na imagine it already, they are always funny. "who ever is going to buy a PS4 exit the room" and everybody leaves.. ahaha
The top buttons look like Sony took a number from Microsoft, with regard to the bumpers.
How'd you get that from these pics? plus, I dont like the xbox bumpers. I've had a few that are sensitive to response and have to be pressed right in order to work. R1 and L1 can stay just the same imo!
I don't like the touch pad/screen but I think I'll all work out. Plus I'm sure you can use the ps3 controller anyways.
I hope they don't go with concave joysticks
Thank God the analogs sticks are there. I wasn't to excited for yesterdays photos.
Looks like the analog sticks are further apart.
Which should be more than fine. Hell, if people can use the Wii U's pad with comfort, this should be no problem in terms of unfamiliarity! (Not saying you're implying the above, just branching out from your observation.)
I'm guessing this leak was to calm down the negative of that news and they do it right by just showing their prototype .. Sony is on top of the game and doing everything right
Looks solid cant wait for the 20th.
hmm headphones port? if the thing in the middle is a mic then there be no point of that jack being a headset port right?
Maybe for audio streaming? I would really like some sort of master volume if that's the case. Like my Sharkoon can change both chat volume and game volume with out messing one another.
I though Nintendo had a patent on controllers with a speaker on it...I loved playing Zelda on the Wii and hearing that sound come from the Wii Mote when you open a chess or fall into a hole.
Maybe Its for those that don't want to scream at their controller but talk into a mic.
There's always a chance of getting light feedback with an "open mic" like you get if you use the Playstation eye for a microphone online. We don't even know that it is a mic though. And also I'd be SHOCKED if this didn't turn out to be the premium controller for the system. In other words the "First Player" controller; when playing with siblings only seniority gets to use the DualShockX. Haha. If it's that packed with features there is no way they can sell it for $50 like the Dualshock3.
I really hope this isn't a "premium" controller. They need this to be the standard controller or else it will be move all over again.
The idea is that one beefy controller comes with every new system but you can buy regular controllers as extras to play with friends. If that's the case it's literally impossible for DualshockX to get a 1/4 tie in rate like Move did. Obviously I'm just having fun speculating for now.
Its likely a headset port. That grille in the middle is for a speaker similar to the one in the wiimote. A speaker on the controller does add a bit of additional feedback for immersiveness, as long as devs don't go overboard with it. I really think that instead of a touch panel they should incorporate a low resolution touch screen. That gives developers the option for custom buttons. It doesn't even have to be color, monochrome would be good enough and cheap.
I'd say its far too big to be a microphone. Looks like a speaker (less they minimize the mesh/sound holes). Think more like the vitas speakers.
Hopefully it is a mic and not a speaker. It DOES look like a speaker, but hopefully that means it's either a really good mic or just because it's a prototype.
hope its not a microphone.... cause imagine if its a mic.. it would pick up all the clicking of buttons and movement of your hands..unless they have a way to eliminate those sounds
The headphone jack is for listening to audio in the game. U have any idea how much game companies put effort into getting great sound into their games? But without headphones, we miss a lot of details in the sound. For example, when I use my turtle beaches, I can hear the exact location of enemies in games like battlefield, dark souls, etc so i can react fast. Games like that improve your reaction time when u can know where an enemy is approaching from before you defend/go ham back on them :D
Maybe this means it will come bundled with a cheap headset for every PS3, which would be awesome and would promote the social aspect people keep wanting on the PS3
@CRASH Actually its the oposite of what your thinking, if your using a mic on your controller you can use a normal pair of headphones for the game and mic sound coming out, by using headphones the mic wouldnt be picking up game noise from speakers.
wow, those sony guys sure know how to excited the grounds
Looks damn good in new pic . Wider, bulkier, with longer handles, already looks so much better than any PS controller before it.
im happy they haven't done a Nintendo and copied the 360's controller. Even though i think the 360's controller is the best this generation im more than open for change. Edit: Any disagreers want to explain why seeings as that's the whole point of that mechanic on this site?
i wonder how many disagree you will get
@omni You like the 360 controller and think it the best design but don't want them to have something similar,even though you said" I'm open for change",either you're trolling or do want them to have a similar controller.
No i said i think the 360 controller is the best controller this generation. But that doesn't mean it cant be beaten. I would be happy to use a different controller if it proved better. In order to improve you cant just copy. Which is what Nintendo have done. Im also happy to see Sony HASN'T copied. This controller COULD be better but we will also have to see what the next Xbox controller looks like.
i disagreed and ill say why. I personally don't like the 360 controller, i dont like the triggers i feel like my finger falls into the controller and the top shoulder buttons are too stiff unlike the ps3 shoulder buttons. The d-pad is bad imo and i don't like how the analog sticks aren't parallel to each along with the sticks having a shape where you sorta have to dig your thumb into the controller (yes i know bad way to describe but cant think of anything else) is uncomfortable compared to ps3 curve sticks. Adding to the bulky nature of the controller doesn't give me the best experience when i play the 360
@omni only complaints I've seen for the ds3 are back shoulder buttons,the joy sticks and the size,if they fix that then both controllers would be even,they would have to go above ms to have a better controller.
I disagreed because I don't think the 360 controller is the best, among other things. Things such as the 360 controller essentially copying the Dreamcast controller, for example. Funny how you conveniently forget about that, and treat it as if the 360 controller was first to be that way. Now, if you prefer the 360 controller, that's fine. Claiming it to be the best, though... And then there's the fact that everything you said is contradictory.
I disagreed because you seemed sensitive to disagrees.
horrible if it has a light on it there is no need just a controller
That looks good. Is the middle part a touchpad?
rumour as its touch pad as well as lcd screen when power on
Link to that "screen rumor" please. I don't recall I've ever heard of it. Since when was that supposed to be a "screen"?
Touch Surface There had been rumblings Sony's integration of a touch surface for its next-gen controller, and it seems those reports were accurate. In the middle of a photo we can see a glossy plastic panel, not unlike the kind found on the back of the PS Vita. While the intended purpose of the panel is unclear, it's important to note that it occupies the space previous reserved for the start and select buttons, which have either been removed or are out of view. Given the placement of the touch panel and Sony's implementation on the PS Vita, it will likely be used for gesture-based navigation and tap commands for functions assigned to certain areas of the surface. There's also the possibility that panel also features some sort of LCD screen, which also had been previously rumored, but may not have been powered on or functioning at the time of the photo. http://uk.ign.com/articles/...
