PS4: Guerrilla helped Sony 'build a great controller for an FPS'

Sony consulted with a select group of PlayStation-owned studios as it was building the DualShock 4 controller for PS4, according to two developers at Guerrilla Games. (Next-Gen, PS4, Sony)

And did a great job. The DS3 was already the best controller but they just made the DS4 even better. Can't wait to see how devs use the clickable touch pad and speaker on the DS4.

Hopefully it gets more use and doesn't turn out like another sixaxis.

Controller seems bigger which was a common complaint, stick are concave now and triggers seem improved, overall looks great.

as a gamer who grew up playing PC and console games, playing Wolf3D the day it came out with a k+m, i hate playing FPS with a controller.

i really wish Sony and MS would let those input devices on their consoles. the analog stick isnt precise enough. it's just too slow for a fast paced game. :(
chaos-lockheart  +   565d ago
you do know that you can use keyboard mouse on the consoles
ufo8mycat  +   565d ago
You know you can increase the sensitivity of the analogs in the game settings yeah? To me they are just as fast as kb+mouse.

I honestly prefer FPS and any other genre with the controller (except RTS).

I find kb+mouse boring, it lacks the immersion that a controller brings. Not to mention it takes no skill what so ever to aim with a mouse.

As for the controller not being precise enough, that depends on each person, but I am pretty sure the majority of people that game on PS3 or 360, including myself, can make headshots quite easily.

It just takes practice.

I could never go back to kb+mouse.
deerain  +   564d ago
That's not what he's talking about, the mouse is more accurate than the controller and yes you can use the mouse and keyboard on console but it's either emulated (not the same) or in the case of PS its not supported in all the games bar a couple. I agree about the mouse but I do find the controller more convenient and would rather see a Move/Wii like controller for FPS, and for the dev's to implement it Killzone 3 and MAG was great with the move but what other FPS uses the move :(

as for skill it must take some degree of skill to use the mouse and the controller but with the controller its also luck when trying to aim that damn crosshair - many times I have be tapping the sticks to just nudge the cross onto the target

what i am happy about is that sony didn't completely redo the controller, IMO dual shock is a Legendary controller. So while some changes had to be made to improve sony did make those changes and there are some great unknowns like the share button and touch pad so let's see

the Triggers had to be redone and they are
the dual sticks needed to be a little more tight, each felt a little loose so i hope they done that

and D-Pad was already the best for a console controller and now it looks like its gonna be even better

can't wait to get my hands on it day one. GG have really become the Dark Horse for sony when it comes to FPS and pushing the tech. I hope this new advertisement firm does a excellent job and get the Killzone series the rightful high sales the series deserves

Knowing Guerrilla, they demand input lag to be build in to the controler, so that every game has awful controls just like KZ2.
FlunkinMonkey  +   565d ago
No my friend.. I think you'll find the controls were actually unique and awesome. They brought something a bit more challenging from the players perspective.

A lot more skill involved than the erratic, weak, robot dance like controls of COD, Halo and other generically controlled shooters.
Kurt Russell  +   565d ago
I thought the iron sights were awful FlunkinMonkey... You could precision aim as well as most shooters and were rewarded too heavily for shooting from the hip. Resistence was better imo.
FlunkinMonkey  +   565d ago
Yea that's a fair comment.. After countless hours online though, learning to use it was really rewarding...

BANG HEADSHOT! with the M4 was awfully satisfying.. maybe too much.

I disagree with being heavily rewarded from the hip though.. MUCH less than other games. Hitting someone with a rifle from a good distance was much harder than iron sight

Dualshock 2 was the best controller. Sony tried replicating the 360 triggers in their own fashion but most people can agree L2 and R2 on the Dualshock 3 sucks.

The Dualshock 4 triggers look good though, kind of like the PS3 Real Triggers by PDP that you can purchase, just part of the controller design this time around.

@Rhythmattic
I find myself doing the same thing. I aim with L1 or an analog stick (they're interchangeable for me), shoot with R1 and then I flick R2 and L2 for whenever I throw 'nades or melee or whatever special ability I may have. It just feels natural. It just feels right.

I can not use this play style on 360 controller. It feels awkward. It's like I'm forced based on design to use the RT to shoot. It feels taboo almost to not use the RT to shoot on a 360 controller
UnholyLight  +   564d ago
@Omni-Tool......Lol oookay then. RT and LT on the Xbox 360 controller is way better. There's a reason the DS4 is finally going to have proper triggers after retarding their controller for so long..people hated it.

I love the controller but they should have moved the position of the left analog stick. Anyone who owns both current next gen consoles knows the 360 layout is much better for shooters.
OneAboveAll  +   565d ago
Agreed with this.
I own all consoles and the 360 controller is fantastic. The Wii U pro controller beats that one in comfort though. Although, it takes time to get used to moving your thumb down to the face buttons instead of up. But there is no denying it's comfortable.

With the PS controllers my thumbs actually touch when pointing both sticks in towards one another. It's really not that ergonomic.
xursz  +   565d ago
I disagree. My hands are symetric. I own both systems and I have no problem with the Dualshock design except that sometimes it felt too small.
PeaSFor  +   565d ago
nah, my hands are symetrics so my left thumb doesnt need to be in a different alignment than my right thumb.

to only thing i prefer about the 360 controller is that its more bulky, but look like the DS4 is also more bulky.....thats perfect for me.

KUV1977  +   565d ago
While I totally agree that the DualShock is the better layout, the 'hands are symetric' argument actually supports the X-Box-Controller as you are mostly using one thumb to hammer on the action buttons (X/O/Triangle/Square), the other thumb is on the left stick and thus lower than the right thumb. The only time the position is symmetrical is when using both sticks to navigate/look around etc..
But for me the Dualshock is still the most comfortable controller. I guess it really is mostly a manner of being used to something.
Ilovetheps4  +   565d ago
KUV,

I'm not sure what FPS you are talking about, but in most FPS's, I like to be able to move and aim at the same time. So, my thumbs are often on the thumbsticks.
edgeofsins  +   565d ago
@KUV1977

The symmetric argument doesn't support XBox at all. FPS's are the most played game on XBox. Millions of asymmetrical thumbs. Also. Because the left joystick on 360 is closer to the outside of the controller it has less comfortable degrees of freedom that your thumb can stretch to. It isn't comfortable to have your thumb touching or hovering above your index finger. A lot of people hug the controller instead of letting it just rests in the hands. You don't have to wrap your palms all the way around the grips. This is why a lot of people think the DS analog should be higher.
Eyeco  +   565d ago
I have never understood this ergonomic nonsense, for some strange reason I still prefer DS3 despite it being "ergonomically inferior"
ThanatosDMC  +   565d ago
I disagree, since it's like pulling your other thumb higher. If it's so good, then why didnt they put the right stick on the same location on the other side of the controller?

I don't say that to say the ps controller is bad in anyway mind you. people have different hands. For me personally i wish they would bring out two options with the ps controller. one in the current shape, and one with the stick moved to where the dpad is.

it's the only thing that puts me off the ps4 and the only reason i would still consider getting the next xbox.

I know it seems like such a small issue but i spend a lot of time holding those controllers so they have to feel right for my hands and for fps games and racing games I never liked the ps controller as much. I can manage it sure, but i would rather have the other option

Also, the size is bigger on the controller now. Which is good. Dark Witness...it's possible the Size was your problem. Give it a shot before writing it off

While I agree with them doing this, it just doesn't make sense from a marketing perspective. The Dualshock has a silhouette and layout that easily differentiates it from the xBox 360 controller. When people see the shape they automatically tink "oh thats a Playstation controller' which is why when Nintendo revealed the WiiU Pro Controller I bet most people here said "oh they're just copying from xBox," Or "wow thats just an xBox controller."

I think the DS4 is perfect for Sony. It has the 360 styled grips and triggers, convex analog stick with a lip on the edge to make it feel concave and they're also further apart so your thumbs wont hit each other.

Symmetry, man! My thumbs aren't staggered; so why are the sticks?
knocknock  +   565d ago
I beg to differ, now I'm not a fan boy I'm not here to say ps or xb controller is better, iv bought most of the main consoles since the nes and use third part ones on pc, the reason nintendo did the split sticks and xbox followed, was because research. It's quite intuitive when you think about it, if you stretch the thumb forward the dominant and easiest motion is forward and back, if you stretch it out the side the dominant and easiest motion is side to side. Most games use the left stick for movement and the right for direction, so the off set sticks is actually a good idea.

It matters little in the long run really, familiarity will win out in the end and only truly horrendous controllers are an issue an well we haven't see one of those since the original xbox came with the 'pastey' controller lol.
On a personal note I'm looking forward to the new ps controller, for me the old ones were never a favourite and I think this will really help me enjoy the brand more.

Thats because of trigger buttons, but asymmetrical sticks are just wrong, humans have symmetric hands.

DigitalRaptor  +   565d ago
And what if you vastly prefer other genres to shooters, that the PS4 will provide?

No, in my opinion the sticks are fine exactly where they are. I've used the Xbox controller many many times, and the stick positioning is just not as suited to games outside shooters in my opinion. I think having a concave analogue sticks on the DS4 is a good step forward, as it supplies the best of both worlds - a comfortable place for your thumbs to rest, but also has the convex button shape placed where your thumbs rest to give you more active control.

They've also increased the analogue stick distance so it won't feel as small and cramped as the DS3, and it looks to have better grips and triggers too. I just feel that the DualShock fits into my hands better than the Xbox for most styles of play that I'm interested in.

The day my thumbs are in different places on each hand is the day the 360 controller is better than the ps3/4 controller. Till then i will keep my symmetrical hands on a dual shock controller to play games of any kind.
InTheZoneAC  +   565d ago
playing on my friends 360, which is once in a blue moon, I find myself repositioning my thumb on the left analog especially after running. And the response time to aim and fire is a lot slower than compared to ps3.

PS3 controllers/players have a lot quicker reaction times and don't have to worry about the delay of the trigger button like 360 players do.

It doesn't fit my hand like a glove as you think it does.
infamousinfolite  +   565d ago
Funny Analysis but here it is:

Your thumbs are like mates to each other that hate long distance relationships when they are active. So why distance them apart instead of keeping close together.

The dualshock 4 controllers will request that your thumbs be a little far apart but at least both are active down south instead of up north/down south.
Neo-Axl  +   565d ago
Luckily I don't play shooters very offen, the Dualshock controller just feels pretty much perfect for every kind of genre, heck.. even if I did play shooters more offen, I wouldn't sacrifice the DS layout for one specific genre.

I dislike the X360's controller analog stick layout.

This controller fixed what DS3 couldn't:

*Concave Triggers (perfect grip)
*No more convex Thumbsticks, the new designed avoids the slip with the fingers.
*Controller bigger than DS3, which is good for the big hands, and not too big, which is good for the small hands.
*Perfect grip

And is not designed only for the shooters like the Xbox 360.
It works well with fighting games using the D Pad along with other games.

If the touch pad can be used to aim in FPS's, then I'll agree. I know a lot of people here won't agree since most people here are strictly console players but for people that hate analog sticks for aiming, there needs to be a different option to suit different tastes.

Options are a good thing.

I will never ever understand the people saying that the Xbox stick layout is "better for shooters", or "only good for shooters".

Obviously it's a matter of personal preference, but to me, the Xbox controller is superior in EVERY type of game, save for something that is D-Pad only, because the 360's D-Pad is awful.

To me, that sticky layout is the natural way it SHOULD be. Every other controller but the Dualshock has put the left stick up where the 360 has it. The only exception I can think of was that crap Classic controller for the Wii.

N64, GameCube, Wii U Tablet controller and Pro controller, Dreamcast, Xbox, Xbox S, Xbox 360, Ouya....

Everything but the Dualshock has the stick in the upper position. It blows my mind that Sony refuses to change.
PirateThom  +   565d ago
On the flip side, though, since most games use dual stick controls, why doesn't the 360 controller have them both in the upper position?
Hufandpuf  +   565d ago
Imagine having to reach down and tap the A button which is often the most used button in video games. It takes to much effort to go from the top of the controller to the bottom, thus the R Stick is right under the A or X button. These rules don't apply on the left side because the L Stick and the D Pad do essentially the same thing.
UnHoly_One  +   563d ago
Dual stick controls or not, the buttons get used a LOT more than the D-Pad does. Especially on anything other than FPS games...

Most other games you only use that stick to flip the camera around, and that's it.

IMO, the xbox 360 controller was much more comfortable than the PS3's dual shock. I don't like forcing my right thumb down to the stick, and holding it there for the entire time im playing. To me, the natural playing position is left thum on a stick (because it rarely moves, and the right thumb down, since it will be for the most part shared with the abyx buttons. Plus the back curves with my resting hands, so i don't have gaps between my hand and the controller. That said, i do know many DS die hards, so i guess its just not for me.

"The guys who made [the system] are no longer in an ivory tower in Tokyo, it's shared with us and not just with us, but with Evolution, Santa Monica, Naughty Dog, everybody and together we've built the machine."

I am getting so hyped for the PS4. I just keep hearing all this talk about Sony asking all their developers about every aspect of the system and what they should implement. There's so much praise from developers about how awesome the ps4 is and how easy it is to develop for.

Never has any console gotten so much admiration from developers. I can not wait to see what they can do using the PS4. It's looking like we're going back to the glory days of PS2.

And yet, they still use R1 to shoot in Killzone: Shadow Fall (go watch the Jimmy Fallon footage).

Shooting in FPS games needs to be done with the new triggers or at least give you the option to remap. A lot of shooters today still don't give you the option to choose.
Drainage  +   565d ago
r1 is the best trigger button . r2 is best for secondary fire, which SF probably has with the scope thing.
Bathyj  +   565d ago
Why is no one bring secondary fire up?

I miss it so much from KZ1 and it really gives weapons some variety. KZ1 has two of my favourite weapons of all time, the helghast rifle with underslung shotty and the luger pistol with full auto fire or silent shot.

Did no one notice that the charged sniper shot in the demo looked to be a secondary fire mode after equipping the scope?

I really hope they bring this back and the 2 guns I mentions with it. In fact it would be my most requested feature in the game.
Bathyj  +   565d ago
Thats why I never really cared about the complaining for the L2/R2 triggers on D3, because I didnt use them, I prefer the number one buttons.

Firing should be done with the index finger, sometimes refereed to as the trigger finger. I think theres a connection there.

If you use your trigger finger on the 2 buttons, then you have to move your fingers to use them on the 1 buttons as well.

This is awkward.

Then you get a game like hitman where you need to hold the instinct button on 1, and fire with your middle finger on 2. Very unintuitive. No one fires a gun with their middle finger unless they dont HAVE a trigger finger.

I do agree though that games should have mappable controls as standard, and Sony probably should have made it standard for games to have KB&M controls. It would really draw in the FPS crowd, even PC gamers.
ajax17  +   565d ago
I know it's sort of trivial, but my favorite part of the new design is the headphone jack.
Adolph Fitler  +   565d ago
Yep, Sony's controller superiority took over from the SNES. Before Sony "INOVATED" the whole videogame industry, Nintendo made the best controllers for there systems. Then PS1 came along, & Nintendo lost the plot with the awkward & horrible N64 controller, then things didn't improve when they refused to add a 2nd analogue stick to the GC's controller (which was another design travesty), & things only got worse with Wii's cheap attempt, & suck-sess, with the wiggly, waggly stick...Only now has Nintendo bothered to appease there fans with Wii-U actually having a 2 analogue stick arrangement...But, once again, Sony have arrived, & shown Nintendo how it should be done.

I can't wait to get a DS4 in my hands....I just hope Sony release PS4 in Europe, Australia, NZ, instead of screwing us over in favor of the U.S.

can't someone start a petition or something, that we can all put our names to, that will nudge Sony HQ's into eventually doing something about this situation where there biggest fanbase & supporters, get screwed over in favor of a country that has less interest in Sony products.

It is a long known fact that Europe is Sony country, & that in most countries across Europe (as well as Australia), Sony PS products sell better.....And in Europe's case, accounts for the majority of PS sales. By Sony ignoring Europe, in favor of the U.S., they are slowly getting consumers offside, & many are switching to MS for gaming, as they are being made to wait a hell of a lot longer, & also pay an unaccountable, substantial, higher price.

Sony really should do a Worldwide launch, make it fairer to there biggest market, as I really don't blame people from turning away from Sony, as it feels like they are turning away from them (if your from Europe, Australia, or N.Z.).
I want a PS4 for Christmas, I'm from Australia, & the realistic suckish part is, that I haven't got a chance in hell, unless I import & I ain't doing that again.

Good guy Guerrilla games helped Sony design a better controller.

Seriously though, I am really happy with the way the controller design turned out. It looks really comfortable to hold, yet still looks identical to the DualShock 3. The new D-pad looks great, concave joysticks, along with concave L2 & R2 triggers, with more rounded L1 & R1 buttons. The Touch Pad is a great addition, if I'm not mistaken, it is also clickable? Which would be good for spotting on Battlefield, or just an extra button for like a RPG or something.

They should have moved the left analog up a bit. It looks a better fit than PS3 controller for FPS's, but that one is terrible to begin with.

What's funny is that its been the same since ps1 &it kinda still is . I hoe the xbox remote doesn't get to gimmicky and stays somewhat similar.

Yes, CANT wait. Another generation of generic first-person shooters. Long live long live the unintellectual.
