Personally, I'm loving the rumoured new controller (pictured above)

D-Pad look even more awesome
analog sticks seem more comfortable (concave + convex = stroke of genius)
Bulkier for my man sized hands!
Speaker! (can't think of a single bad thing to say about a bonus speaker)
I'm not sure about the touch pad though, seems a bit tacked on, kinda like sixaxis (fun fact, sixaxis is the exact same word spelt backwards, your mind = blown)
Built in Move. . .yeah okay I'm not sold on this one either, unles the controller does split.
Improved R2 and L2 (okay what were they thinking with the DS3 though??)
Overall it's a great improvement and has got me excited for the main console reveal. All SONY has to do now is tell me the price and whether or not they are blocking used games and I just may be sold.

I don't think it's a speaker. More like a microphone. Imagine the rubbish phone "quality" sound coming from it's mic. This won't be muich better if it was a speaker. Microphones the size of a amall coin are much much MUCH better than speakers the size of a small coin. Period.

I initially thought that too. Then I realised that a mic placed there would be constantly picking up the click of buttons/movement of the analog sticks.

They would need some kind of way to eliminate that kind of background noise and I don't think it could be done easily.

I'm not liking the rumored touchpad/touchscreen feature. Presuming the mockups are accurate, it's too small to have any valid gameplay applications and needlessly raises the manufacturing cost of the console, in my opinion.

Your right it would be better if the touch was used for menu and some shortcuts than actual gameplay functions.

Lets wait and see.

Who cares about the d-pad/

PS4isKing_821801d ago

For "actual" games that require "skill" such as fighting games, a quality d pad is needed.

Only thing that looks bad to me is the sticks. That little ridge would have be digging my thumbs in there the whole time if I had that, I bet it's annoying to lay your thunk on top of. If it isn't broke, Sony...

I remember getting an arrow imprint on my thumb from the NES D pad back in the day!
