All jump aboard the Hype Train!

theBAWSE1645d ago

@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..

TheGamerDood1645d ago (Edited 1645d ago )

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.

5 long days!

Can't wait!

nice controller btw.

Darrius Cole1645d ago

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.

trenso11645d ago

I like the controller but the way the start selevt buttons are place i think should be moved cant wait for the 20th!

TheGamerDood1645d ago

added more contrast to reveal a bit more detail.

I just hope there isnt a light on the controller and something like this

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.

LolololRumz1645d ago

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)

DOMination-1645d ago

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.

gaffyh1645d ago

@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.

Masta_fro1645d ago

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...

Exquisik1644d ago

If this...

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.

I wished they hand an angle taken from the back....so we could see the R2/L2 buttons

Irishguy951644d ago

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

Cam9771645d ago (Edited 1645d ago )

I can't wait! It looks like the original Ps controller - I REALLY like that!

aceitman1645d ago

is that a headphone jack beneath the playstation button.nice if it is .

CatXFlash1645d ago

Chooo Chooo!! I love it xD

gedapeleda1645d ago

"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

StraightPath1645d ago (Edited 1645d ago )

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.

xtremeimport1645d ago

that angle makes it look completely different.
I wonder how bit it is...gotta be wider than the dualshock.

akaakaaka1645d ago (Edited 1645d ago )

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

adorie1645d ago

The top buttons look like Sony took a number from Microsoft, with regard to the bumpers.

xtremeimport1645d ago

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!

Just_The_Truth1645d ago

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.
