The controller placement is fine. The D-pad is okay where it is. While there are some games that would benefit, I find the D-pad usage in PS3 quite good.

I had the prototype in my hands (not the one they showed, the older one) and when you pick up the current DS3 you get that feeling of wondering how you could have use it that long. It's leaps better than DS3. I don't know what it is. Maybe weight, subtle changes in shape, I even like the sticks more. It just feels much better. The track pad has a nice click to it, same like the buttons, almost better. I'm glad they left the sticks where they are. I like them there.

5 worst concerns ever.

Here its 5 of my own
1) Faulty hardware
2)PSN trophies gone
3) Besides been powerfull, I see no innovation at all, lets hope the cards are lay out at E3
4)Plenty of ram with slow cpu
5) No bc and same old controller and probably blocking used games
6) The rival blows them out of the sky high with offerings
7)The hardware its been delay
8) The design looks like a yugo
9) Insert comment here------------------------

The only one that I actually agree with, besides the positives obviously, is Sony using Ustream over TwitchTV. Twitch is getting pretty big, and I have hardly ever, EVER, used Ustream. But we'll see if that changes with the PS4.

yea twitch is what i use . I think it would be better if they went with twitch myself
ThanatosDMC  +   885d ago
Really weird that they didnt use Twitch. Maybe they cant settle a deal with each other? I'm browsing Ustream right now and their gaming section sucks and I cant browse based on game titles.

I'm disappointed in the ps4 in someways, as all these features with gaikai are great don't get me wrong and even if I bought a ps4 day 1, gaikai doesn't do anything for me as I don't have Internet offered in my area, and so the "share button" will do nothing for me. I was looking forward to the new system and it being backwards compatible(would have bought it for that feature alone,before they would remove the hardware to make it cheaper) but I don't even get that. So the only value I see in the system is playing ps4 games, which likely will be worth it in the long run, and I will own one at some point. Just it's unlikely to be within the first 2 years. I'll wait until the is a large selection of games

are you going to throw your PS3 out the window as soon as you open your ps4?
KrisButtar  +   885d ago
I actually own 3 ps3's and I would've done the same thing I did with my ps2's(had 3 of those to) which is donate them to group homes or to the hospital for sick kids, which is called the IWK here in nova scotia
theBAWSE  +   885d ago
Well you can donate two ps3s ...in sure the kids will be happy

hell no trade it in for ps4 games bro
StinKyNuGz  +   885d ago
i hope we can transfer are trophies and account over or we have to make a new one on ps4
Heavenly King  +   885d ago
the PSN ID you already use on your PSVITA and PS3 will be used with the PS4.

I dont get this fixation with offset sticks.

Unless your left thumb is offset of course. I'm luck, my hands are symmetrical.
platformmaster918  +   885d ago
Couldn't agree more. I hate offset sticks. Wiiu pro and DS4 have it right
2pacalypsenow  +   885d ago
why do people complain about the dualshock its award winning and nobody ever complained until he ps3 days just because its not made for fps doesnt make it bad
r21  +   885d ago
His controller design concern is the placements of the left stick? It will not change ever. If you want an xbox controller, go buy that or a 3rd party controller for the ps4.
Hicken  +   885d ago
I seriously don't get it. I don't even get how it's supposed to be better for shooters.

Can someone explain that to me?

Concern 5 has already been addressed.

Concern 4 sounds more like a personal preference than anything else. What the author wanted isn't what Sony's giving, so they're upset.

Concern 3... well, it's that same old nonsense as always: someone who doesn't know what "ergonomics" is talking about the controller not being ergonomic. And random shots at the XMB, which despite its amazing ease of use, is "quirky?" Yeah, okay.

Concern 2 shouldn't be that much of a worry. The PS3 has at least 3 more years of support, as per Sony. That's likely 3 more years of PRODUCTION; software and server support will likely last sometime after that.

Concern 1 is the only one with any validity, honestly. And I think I'd be having too much fun playing around with the damn thing and what IS there to worry about what ISN'T.

Then again, even some of the positives are more like backhanded compliments.

No BC... again

Didn't Sony already addressed the issue regarding second hand games and that the PS4 will be able to play them?
