DUALSHOCK 4 Touchpad will be Clickable

Regarding the DS4 touchpad, Sony says it will have a click mechanism. Let's see what this means for you and how you'll be able to click it. (PS4)

Nice, I like innovative additions! I looked at the close-up images and the controller is looking very attractive! I LOVE the 'Share' button.

I agree, sharing videos is going to be great. There were lots of times I wish I could have done that on ps3

I remember some people a few days ago saying that "those share button rumours were proven fake". Well thanks, thanks for that Columbo

And I love how the lower half of the controller has a mesh-like design to prevent slipping.

GET HYPED!

Innovative additions. -__- its a freaking clickable touchpad, where's the innovation?
Blackdeath_663  +   555d ago
so the rumours were true and false, there was a rumour that there will be no touch pad and the led screen will be clickable. i guess a clickable touch pad is classy

Love the controller and all the innovative aspects of the ps4. Everything is instant even demos and you can play games while its still downloading int he background. they even have a chip for downloading and uploading. Ps4 games on vita and other things. Share button is awesome ill be using that like crazy during my uc4 and kz4 marathons!!!!!!!!!

Man this system was what i expected and more. Im now mad that i have to wait until nxt christmas!!!!!! like really!!!!

Release day i will take off a week without any hesitation and lock myself in my apt.

Next Christmas? This Christmas.

So you'll probably click it to turn it on and off.

its not all about innovation to me.. The dual screen functionality with all mobile devices, the touchpad, share button, move sensor, new analogs, new trigger, refined D-Pad all are great features.. I couldnt ask for a better controller.. Its perfect as long as the battery life is 40 or more hours im good..
No FanS Land  +   554d ago
@Divine assault: Could really lasts for 40 hours.

on the spec sheet it's written that the battery life is 1000Mah
a dual shock3 is 330Mah.

and I don't think the DS4 consumes that much energy to power a touch pad and a LED light.
DivineAssault  +   554d ago
so roughly 50-60 hrs then imo.. im very VERY pleased with what theyve brought to the table.. & its not even E3 yet XD

Drawing letters on it for typing and chat would be great!

What does the light bar do?
haggishurler  +   554d ago
In my understanding, it is an easy method for identifying who is which player, as opposed to the number system a different colour (sorry English :D) will be assigned, I did see during the presentation a red light and a blue light on the controllers which allowed me to draw this conclusion.

I believe it is also used as a tracking system similar to the ball of the the move controller. It will likely replace the original six axis controls with a pointing precision feature as well.

I am really pleased with how this controller appears to be turning out.
BitbyDeath  +   554d ago
Which i guess means they aren't limiting games to 4 players, but instead let the dev decide what's best.
Cryptcuzz  +   554d ago
It is used to identify who is who during a game if played with two or more person via the PS4 Eye (everyone gets a different color like the move)

It can also display different colors depending on what you are doing or happening in a game (flashing red when getting hit by bullets for example)

Probably also used so the PS4 Eye can track the controller possibly for more accurate motion (Think the move)

Wouldn't be great if you this controller with the ps3.
BitbyDeath  +   554d ago
Would be great if i can write on it and have it translate into text on screen.
