Damn ! I like the shape of the L2 R2 triggers

Not like PS3 and not like Xbox 360, just in between

I feel for Jimmy & Anthony. When your used to playing inverted, it takes some time getting used regular again.

Pre-rendered rumor Debased... It was live!!!

the headphone jack
looks similar to the one on my psp. Maybe i can use my existing headset.......?

As for the touchpad, is it just a pad or is it also a screen like on a cell phone?
miyamoto  +   955d ago
shhh...the Dual Shock 4 is staring at you...
XB1_PS4  +   955d ago
The build of this controller reminds me of a sportscar. Like the curves of a matte black ferrari. It's a pretty controller, much like when the 360 controller was announced. Can't wait to own a few of these.
Wintersun616  +   955d ago

I believe it was confirmed to be a touchpad only. Also in the pics you can see it's slightly textured and it doesn't look like glass. It's a pad.
XB1_PS4  +   955d ago
@wintersun The touch pad kinda looks like the back of the vita. I hope it doesn't scratch as easy as the back of the vita. The front of my vita is beautiful, but the back is horrendous.

I think it won't scratch so much. Considering it's position only your fingers should be touching it. It would have to be of VERY low quality material to scratch from fingers.
brave27heart  +   955d ago

I thinks its a simple headphone socket, next to the charging port for the controller (which would have to be on the bottom since the move light bar is on the top)
Wintersun616  +   955d ago

Actually the charge port is right below the lightbar. It can be seen there with a USB symbol in one of those pics.

I don't mind how the triggers look but they better feel better than the ps3's triggers. To me, dreamcast, Xbox, and 360 has the best triggers

PlayStation 4 controller looks amazing!

Cant wait to have one.
irepbtown  +   955d ago
I absolutely hated it at first, but looking at these pictures man... I was wrong.

I 100% agree, heck Amazing is an understatement.

I would still like the option to also use a traditional DS3 controller on the PS4. Variety is what everyone needs.
Raf1k1  +   955d ago
Definitely a good looking controller. A lot of us were judging it on the pictures of the protoype controller but the actual thing looks much nicer.
miDnIghtEr20C_SfF  +   955d ago
Looks pretty much the same as it's always been. Sucks they didn't move the analog sticks for those of us with bigger hands. Still using little boy hands as the mold it seems.

That is one beautiful controller, top notch design and with the dual shock comfort I could only imagine what sight the actual console will be!
TheGamerDood  +   956d ago
The more I see it the more I want to dry hump it. And now with the addition of the touch pad it will know the feel of my touch. lmao

great, they pre inserted the battery again..
See microsoft
thereapersson  +   955d ago
It's pretty easy to replace the battery on a PS3 controller
But it takes a long-ass time before the stock battery wears down and won't hold a charge.
nosferatuzodd  +   955d ago

CaptainYesterday  +   956d ago
I love the look! It looks amazing I didn't think they could improve the Dualshock but they just did! I can't wait for the PS4! :)
Shadow Flare  +   956d ago
The new design approach reminds me of the GameCube controller in the sense that the GameCube controller was very comfortable to hold. They've clearer tried to make the dual shock 4 more ergonomic, can't wait to hold it. I'm interested to see how that touchpad will be implemented. Someone must have a good use for it.
CaptainYesterday  +   956d ago
When I first saw the leaked pictures of the PS4 controller it reminded me of the Dreamcast controller because of the screen :P
I can definitely see what your saying of how it reminds you of the Gamecube controller, it was a great controller fits in your hands nicely. One of my favourite controllers :)
Mister_G  +   956d ago
Already pre-orderd mine. But I'm in the UK so probably will have to wait until 2014 :'(

@haggishurler: 2013 for the UK? I hope you're right mate :)

Do you remember that boomerang looking prototype for the PS3? lol. God, I'm glad the Dualshock didn't evolve into that. This controller looks very sleek. I love it.
RedDevils  +   955d ago
Come to think of it I want to try out that Boomerang lmao
HappyGaming  +   955d ago
I don't know what they were thinking with that controller but yes I think we are all glad.

DualShock has been around for so long now that making any bigger changes then what they have done with the DS4 would seem odd.

DS4 seems like a great improvement over DS3.

so what will the pad be used during gameplay?, pointing?
DownNotOut  +   956d ago
It will probably facilitate menu navigation, it would be perfect for the weapon wheel from resistance 3 too

Edit: it would have also made assassins creed 3 A LOT less frustrating lol

KShinigami  +   956d ago
Extremely unsightly. Looks more like a toy, no branding, awkward shades of black, colour is reminescent of older tec. Looks cheap and cluttered.

EDIT: also the touch pad is really disturbing as it is central, being completely blank.

Your opinion, i will have to disagree. To me, it looks sleek and awesome to hold, more appealing than that Banana controller Sony had in mind for the PS3.

Hey, you're entitled to your opinion but...

"awkward shades of black"

id dont like the concave analog sticks. But everything else is flawless
CryofSilence  +   956d ago
I don't like concave joysticks either. I always found that my thumbs would never be touching the comfortable part of the joystick while actively playing on the Xbox controller; however, my thumbs would occasionally slip off of the Dualshock. I think this design fixes both of those issues. By having a convex bubble inside of a concave depression, your fingers seem like they would stay on better while still touching the main part of the joystick. As far as I am concerned, conceptually, they've taken the best of both worlds.
MadMen  +   956d ago
I like the tech, but looks ugly, with the way the screen fits in it, looks cheap.
colonel179  +   955d ago

Beautiful controller, maybe R2 and L2 could be slightly more concave.
BoNeSaW23  +   956d ago

Looks like I'll be purchasing more snap on triggers for the PS4.
Mister_G  +   955d ago
Never had a problem with the L2/R2 button on DS3 :)
theDECAY  +   955d ago
I don't think many people like the downward angle. I have a hard time with them, especially in Killzone, for cover. My fingers fall off if I don't hold the controller tight as a mother.
GusBricker  +   956d ago
IMO, it still looks too damn small.

I hated the dual shock 3. Every time I picked it up, I thought I was going to crush the damn thing. It felt cheap.
GraveLord  +   956d ago
Dualshock 4 is bigger than DS3.

If you can see, the controller has the same texture on the R1 n L1 as the analog sticks. Same with the d-pad. :)

GribbleGrunger  +   956d ago
Jesus Christ I just realised what we are looking at here in the first screenshot!!! Everyones been asking why that touchpad is curved. Look at the gap between where the curve ends and the controller begins. Then ask yourself why the pad is clickable... Got it, yes? IT FRIGGIN' FLIPS UP!! We haven't seen the screen yet, just the top.
WeAreLegion  +   956d ago
While it is unlikely, it is possible. However, I don't think they'd let Jimmy Fallon play with the thing, if he might give away something like that. The man is a fool.
GribbleGrunger  +   956d ago
Not even one that isn't hinged to make sure that no one finds out before E3?
MikeMyers  +   956d ago
GribbleGrunger might be onto something.


This could be a removable trackpad and could support the rumor of a split controller. How about using a Move controller and then this trackpad together?
nikoado  +   956d ago
In the 3rd picture, what type of connection is that beside the earphone jack?

I also wonder why there is a dedicated options button on the controller itself. Replacement for start/select? Maybe that'll be the "bring up the map" button now?
#16 (Edited 956d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
colonel179  +   955d ago
The connection is like the one used in the PSP for earphones; they go together though, so you can't connect two different things. It allows volume and mic controls. There are a lot of Sony products that use it. (Don't know about other brands).

The options button will replace start and select. The way it will be used is unknown yet. Maybe it will be like holding the PS button on the PS3 which brings out the system menu.

I hated the DS3 but the DS4 looks perfect.
47  +   956d ago
The DS3 has always been a crap pad, everyone outside of the moronic Sony fanboys knows this. Its why there are FAR more 3rd party PS3 pads shaped like the 360's. However this controller looks to fix a lot of the issues the DS3 had. Crappy triggers and poorly placed and designed joysticks. Cant wait to see the PS4 in person.
hivycox  +   956d ago
its looks like nothing special!
the touchpad seems like a cheap reason to call the controller innovative! thats just weak sony... I expected more...way more than just a poorly excuse for a "new" controller", just better graphics, and online features which will be used by 10% of the people who actually buy your system...if it will be at a resonable price which I don't expect since the RAM is GDDR5..

So long Sony

It looks like they found the perfect balance. And omg those triggers!!!!! I want to press them already!!!!! Lol

I agree with everyone that Sony and Mark have created the most modern and comfortable looking controller i have ever seen.

You can tell just by looking at it how comfortable it is, not to mention how Gorgeous it looks.
DivineAssault  +   955d ago
Its hands down the greatest controller ive ever seen.. BTW, is the bottom half like a rubber type material? Triggers n analogs are perfect.. face buttons & d-pad are perfect.. touchpad, light sensor, & speaker are great additions... share, options, PS buttons are where they need to be..

The analogs n triggers are my favorite enhancements.. That shouldve been changed years ago but better late than never & the design remains true to the classic dual shock.. I hate the winter so bad but i really hope summer FLIES by so i can get my hands on dis mo fo
