Same shape? Really? It looks alot different from what i'm seeing, the handles are bigger and more rounded. Looks much more comfortable

iGAM3R-VIII1955d ago

Agreed, it looks more ergonomic

I never use this term, but after reading the article > lol <

Controller seems to be 95% the same as dS3.

Belking1955d ago (Edited 1955d ago )

Sticks: same
Buttons: same
Direction pad::same
Shoulder buttons:same

Triggers: more like Xbox 360 now
Added touch pad and put same tech that's in the move ball. Added share button which will probably see minimal use.

Still basically the same controller from the original ps. Most features won't even be used just like six axis .

@Belkin, you are probably blind go see a doctor.

@ Belking
Sticks: Have edges now to prevent slipping
Buttons: Digital not analog which would be bad but hardly anyone used it and it apparently reduces latency
Dpad: Looks different to a man but to each his own
Shoulders: same a man agrees
Shape: A man sees more grip on this controller and the grips are longer

And a man doesn't know about you but he likes to preserve his precious gaming moments like a crazy GTA chase or a giant encounter in Skyrim or a miracle sports victory over a friend so he sees the share button being used a lot.

"Sticks: same" Wrong the new DS4 sticks have an indent in them so it is easier to have control.

"Buttons: same" Fair enough but the D-pad is different. Also the start and select buttons are removed

"Direction pad::same" No it is changed

"Shoulder buttons:same" Okay

"Shape:same" No not really, the DS4 looks more ergonomic to hold and seems like a nice feel. It is also larger as well

Belkin trolls Sony a lot but I have to agree with him. It's a ds4. It looks similar to the ds3. If it isn't broke don't fix it. It's just been tweaked and for the better from my point of view. That may or may not change when I get to hold it but the form is duel shock just evolved

brave27heart1954d ago

Evolution not revolution.

Thats no bad thing at all.

Typical-Guy1955d ago

I don't know about you but I've known this before... Nothing new here!

It looks really comfortable especially those triggers... Damn I want it NOW

Jaqen_Hghar1955d ago

A man didn't know how rumble compared to DS3 so that was news to him

Shacojin1955d ago

Microsoft will have the "Deal with It!" button on their new controller.

Jaqen_Hghar1955d ago

It promptly shocks the user's hands and puts a middle finger on your TV
