Actually the bar is more like Move. Colored and tracked by cameras. Thats Move.

The controller looks better than any of the leaks! I'm so f'ing hyped!!!! Day 1 baby! xO

8GB DDR5 memory!!! The huge levels they'll be able to create will blow minds! I can't believe Sony went with 8GB.

Now showing Guerrilla Games....god damn that level was amazing!

With what they've shown so far they've already met my expectations. Sony is not f'ing around! I'm completely blown away.

Yeah, seeing that bar made me pause for more than a second.

It better be optional...
Yodagamer  +   921d ago
@Godmars290 It will be included, why put functionality into the controller just to disable it, so they could make a few bucks on the side. I don't think sony would do that. Now my main question is will it track the move controller, the two cameras could help tracking improve.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   921d ago
The best part of the controller showed today against the prototypes leaked is definetely the D-Pad. When I first saw the leaked image I readily noticed that the D-Pad buttons were too close together, that would probably get in the way for the extra precisicion the current Dual Shock 3 D-Pad have (compared to other controllers), nice so see they spaced it back.
sikbeta  +   921d ago
Looks Good, at least it's an evolution and not just an straight copy-paste of the DS3 :P
karl  +   921d ago
how is kinect like? its a camera to track the controller ala move!..
kinect is a 3d camera that tracks your body right?

i understand the sensor has a kinect shape but noone even talk about anything different from what move was.. it can be a 3d camera but it wasnt mentioned yet soo i dont know what u guys r talking about
BlaqMagiq24  +   921d ago
Really liking the new controller!

Get hyped!!!
itBourne  +   921d ago

And the kinect copied the eye toy, so what else is new, everyone copies everyone. I tried lame kinect like games back on my ps2. The playstation eye has always reacted to peoples body, even before the introduction of the move.

yeah i was only expecting 4GB GDDR5 or 8GB GDDR3 but to have 8GB GDDR5 is absolutely amazing, mind blowing infact. it really shows sony's commitment to multitasking and the new social features they've implemented. on a side note Blizzard+Sony is something i did not see coming i hope there will be keyboard & mouse support for diablo3 as well as controller. would love to see more keyboard and mouse support for games no reason not to
showtimefolks  +   921d ago | Well said
8GB of RAM lol

ps4 day one for sure. not trying to hate on wii-u or nintendo fans but this is what next gen is suppose to look like.
clearelite  +   921d ago
8GB GDDR5 bro absolutely amazing and we haven't seen what it can do yet trust me.
The Great Melon  +   921d ago
This is like the first time a console has the same amount of memory as computers have on release. Heck, the memory is faster and will be better utilized that desktop memory also. This upcoming generation might be able to hold its own for awhile.

i am glad they didn't totally change the iconic controller. But have made changes to make it better. the L1-2 R1-2 buttons looked much better

can't wait to get my hands on this
Yodagamer  +   921d ago
I was look at the photos and i just realized the r2/l2 buttons still don't have a ridge under them to avoid accident presses when you put it on the table, like the ps3 controller had. O.o that was one of the things i'd hope they'd fix
user3915800  +   921d ago
So far nothing but integration, im dissapointed, dont know why anyone is excited with controller, same one they have since ps1, awfull design.

Great idea for a controller. Keep what works and add practical non-gimmicked functions to it. Nintendo needs to take notes.
TAURUS-555  +   921d ago
nice controller as usual sony never disappoints
maximaz  +   921d ago
Mostly but Im really worried about the placement of the Share and Options buttons. Who thought it was a good idea to put them right near both the touch bar and the buttons? I'll be pressing them unintentionally all the time!

Plus 8Gb Ram! Mental. I think we'll see a lot more at E3

What happened to ''if it ain't broke''?
bluetoto  +   921d ago
But it was broke, they at least needed to fix the damn L2 and R2 buttons as they were horrible.

it looks worse imo
bluetoto  +   921d ago
That's the beauty of life, we all see things differently and there is no right or wrong when it comes to personal preference.

Hope you come to like it as it's unlikely to change.
DasBunker  +   921d ago
Who cares how it looks as long as its functional.

Better joysticks,bigger controller, improved triggers and vibration. Sounds good.
plaZeHD  +   921d ago
It actually looks and sounds good.
Tony-Red-Grave  +   921d ago
the pictures dont do it much justice. in the live steam the DS4 looked godamned sexy
Reverent  +   921d ago
It was. It really was. It looked like a high end sports car incarnated into a controller. I absolutely cannot wait.
clearelite  +   921d ago
Of course it does, it's Sony :]

Even my pristine PSP1000 is sexy, to this day.

The Great Melon  +   921d ago
No more plastic add-on triggers anymore! I always forget how the bare controller feels until I play someone else's PS3. I can't live without concave triggers.

nevin1  +   921d ago
I think in the end the touchpad will be usless like sixaxis. I also dont think it needed a share button. If the DS3 are still running at $54.99, how much DS4 will be?

I see no reason why DS3 wouldnt be a option for PS4.
CDzNutts  +   921d ago
So every single known device on the planet that connects has a share button or at minimum option of some sort.....and you REEEAALLY don't see why they added it?

Hmmmmm.......The logic is weak with you, my friend.
moparmogul  +   920d ago
Can't someone express any opinion other then a pants jizzingly positive one about sony, and not receive a tidal wave of disagrees?

This site is so biased. If he doesn't like the controller more then the DS3, then that's his opinion and he's entitled to it.

inb4 mass disagrees.
BattleTorn  +   920d ago
I like the DS4. But I think they lost A LOT of potential by going touchpad, and not TOUCH SCREEN!

"they conformed the vita can remote play ps4 games!!!"
WitWolfy  +   921d ago
I'll believe that when I see it... About 80% of current Vita owners are still waiting for their PS3 games to have that function.
Snookies12  +   920d ago
The reason the Vita will be able to play PS4 games, as well as PS1, PS2, and PS3 when the system comes it is because of Gaikai. They are completely redoing the way remote play works so that it'll have instant response time with controls. It's practically built into the PS4, that's why it'll work much better on that system. :]

Hey, now don't go JINXING ps4 by uttering comments like that. After all we still didn't see the console it's self and we still don't know how much all that killer specs & new features is gonna cost us.

So far I like what I hear. But that knack game looks weak. The controller looks ok but the sensor bar should be a bark color. I don't like that bright blue. Man isp's are Gunna HATE Sony!! Lol

FamilyGuy  +   921d ago
Re-watch the part of the stream where they were showing Knack being remote-played on the Vita. There's some crazy looking high quality reflections and during the really quick explosion you see some crazy lighting effects. It's all cartoony and I was uninterested till I saw that.

It wasn't part of the trailer, just the guy playing it to show off the Vita remote play.

Get to that scene and try not to be impressed. In such a cartoony game those type on in-game fire effects during the little explosion were insane.

A touchpad for all those mobile games that will be ported over to consoles. A speaker like the Wii-mote is a good edition, I can see the potential in that.

snakebite36  +   920d ago
Can that type of jack take a normal headphone plug, without the usb-like part?
kenshiro100  +   921d ago
I really like the controller so far.
optimus  +   921d ago
Hmm, it all sounds fancy but isn't anyone worried about the price?? The controller alone would likely cost 100, 80 if we're lucky... I'm guessing the whole thing will come in at 600 barebones... Add in another controller and of course 1 or 2 games and it's close to 800+...looks like i'll be waiting for that price drop before even going near it.
porkChop  +   921d ago
It's believed that Sony is targeting a $450 price point for the console.

Like it a lot.

It's both conservative and innovative.

Very smart design with a host of aesthetic improvements I think PS gamers have always been asking for and has now been implemented.

Look at that sexy dpad. You sexy little beast.
The Great Melon  +   921d ago
The dpad looks a little funky to me. But that just might be just because this is the first big evolution of Sony's iconic controller.

Also, I am glad that they didn't swap the stick with the dpad. Loved the arrangement given the way you hold the controller.

battlegrog  +   921d ago
I never had a problem with the layout. I had a problem with the entire mechanics of each part and the size. It seems they had finally made good trickers and changed the analog sticks to something good. Plus it looks like the handles are longer. Finally cus i felt the handles seemed short and your thumbs sat award on the sticks.
mamotte  +   921d ago
I dont know about the touchpad. When I think about it, I cant find a practical use for something so little, so strangely placed (Can you imagine your fingers trying to get to it? Me neither), it doesnt show any information since it isn't a screen... I just can find an explanation to it. Seems like another Sony experiment putting extra things they dont even know how to use. Worst of all, no game has showed how they'll use it, just hope it wont become "something placed somewhere" like the sixaxis or the rear PS Vita touchscreen.
EbeneezerGoode  +   921d ago
Well for a start off they rumoured biometric (thumb) log on to the console. And it's easier to use a cursor for online than a stick to move a cursor.
mamotte  +   921d ago
Unless you can get to the stick easier than the touchpad.

Edit: About the biometric... what's the point on making remote play, if you need your thumb to access it? And vice-versa: What's the point on making your console unique with your fingerprint... if you can acces it from any dispositive?

PinkFunk  +   921d ago
I was really hoping it would be a little touchscreen sort of like that animated GIF someone showed off. Little icons for messaging and things of that nature, like a pocket XMB.

But I do agree, a touchpad is odd. I suppose it adds more options for more buttons though, so that's never a bad thing.
Sci0n  +   921d ago
I told yall vita would play a huge roll with PS4! Glad I got mines out the way already by purchasing one for Christmas. PS4 for me this Christmas!
adwyer  +   921d ago
Quick question, where was the PS4?
WitWolfy  +   921d ago
Save the best for E3 or TGS is my guess...
ajax17  +   921d ago
I'm so glad the rumor of 4GB of ram is untrue! 8GB of GDDR5 is amazing
