I never really liked that light bar on the controller because I thought it was going to primarily be used for motion gaming purposes. But when they explained that feature, it just made sense to me. That feature is brilliant. I hate playing split screen and playing the screen across from me. But, this would solve that issue. I hope they use that feature quite often.

that's right, and that rubber for better grip is a great addition too.
this is true next gen controller, PS1-->PS3 we have seen no evolution, now it's obvious PS4 is THE next big thing.
Cannot wait for the release!

From the controller to the console's architecture to the planned features, I really think Sony is making all the right decisions for the PS4.

I thought the same thing when I heard the split screen swap. I hope companies make use of that idea. Playing Halo 2 was always nightmare on the original Xbox, because everyone had their own preferred position relative to the TV. For some reason we never could get the order of sign in right. There was always much arguing in the pre-game. Good times...
bullymangLer  +   1022d ago
The only next GEN features the P$4 has is the not so UNIQUE but yes gratefully sweet SHARE button ? and pixar power under the beLt? . . so what?!

the PS4 can do some bad ass stuff!

or is this just how it seems for the PS4?

The Dualshock 4 has those beautiful LED lights!I"m LOVING that. That feature had to have sprung from the also different colored LED lights of the 3DS but still.
And the Dualshock 4 touch pad and the whole flicking idea is all Nintendo then again eh.

pero ps4 with split-screen still though = :/

Sony can you please just give me a Date and a Price, and take my money - I am ready...

I was ready to order at the first Press Conference... LoL

-All Jokes Aside though, I have been ready for the nex gen of consoles, for awhile now, since I also game on PC-

So it's really going to be amazing to finally be able to have some of the advantages PC gives you - plus some of these cool things they have added.

I can't wait... hopefully our launch games turn-out to be really good and if that happens the 2nd round of games will probably be even better, it will once again be an amazing time to be a Gamer...

Controller looks like a nice re-design from what we have now, I wish we could have got a price on how much they will cost because you always end up needing to get a second controller at launch..

I think Sony has hit this one out the park, I think the launch of PS4 is going to be huge...

I must say, I think Sony has actually done a REALLY good job in leading up to E3 and the eventual release of the PS4. From a pure Business and Marketing perspective Sony is doing a great job in just continuing the conversation with people about their console and why it is so great. Even though some of the things have already been talked about, keeping that audience retention at a maximum is going to really work out for them.

This Commerce student gives Sony an A on their current campaign! Now let's see what approach Microsoft will take with their reveal.

I did not disagree, but the share button will not be for me. I'm not a social gamer. I personally don't need to upload videos or pictures to the internet. I've never even used facebook or any social media before. But, for those that will use it, the function looks great. It looks easy to use, but for me, it will never be used.
Conzul  +   1022d ago
Well, I expect the disagrees come from disgruntled people who actually bought the dedicated hardware needed for recording game footage. Also they probs have nice PCs for editing and such, and, well, now this "Share" button comes along and steals all their thunder.

That said, I hope the video recording function lets you save a local copy of the clips instead of forcing an automatic upload to some arbitrary social site. We need to be able (still) to offload them to our PCs to be able to make montages and add custom musics and sounds and other stuff that should be self-evident.
DOMination-  +   1022d ago
I didn't disagree. I like the features that the share button provides. They all look like things I'd use too, but imo, it doesn't need a button. They could have just built an option into the OS. Then they could have used that space for a button you could actually use for gameplay or something else. The feature doesn't really need it's own dedicated button.
ps3_pwns  +   1022d ago
the share button was needed and even for those people who arent social media type person even me who is not a social media type person will still use it a lot becuase in games sometimes im just like what im doing right now is just to awesome i need to record and save this moment and the share button makes it instant and faster no need to go through the menu screen and such to toggle it on.

just press the button and bam that time you killed 10 people in a row by yourself in the cod or warhawk is now saved and can be show to the world if you like.
phantomexe  +   1022d ago
I think the controller is great. The share button was a great idea but the touch pad is so small. I can't see that be used the way sony may be hopeing developers will use it. I don't know tho maybe they will. I can think of thousands of ways to use the wiiu touch screen but i go brain dead when i try to think of ways to use sonys touch pad. Never the less day 1 for me as soon as gamestop begins takeing preorders.

The touch pad is easy one to think of. Think of Forza and all the layers you need to use too create or replicate something. With the touch pad if they let you use a stylus or even your finger. You can draw your image on the touch pad and it appears on the screen. Hit the option button and a color wheel pops up to fill in with the select color or colors. Now think about that in a game like Gran Turismo or the new IP Drive Club. Think about it just as an app to draw and then print.

@Pierce - What makes their positioning wrong? Just because you say so? People have their own preferences, and it's not like it's a huge deal to use the PS alignment as opposed to the 360 alignment of analogues. They both function and neither are a burden to use, so neither are in the wrong.
avengers1978  +   1022d ago
Why would Sony change a controller lay out that has been successful not only for years but generations. I think the dual shock is the best controller.
Root  +   1022d ago

LOL...what are you talking about, the DS is better then the 360s controller. It's more adaptable for different types of games while the 360s is only better with first person shooters and sometimes driving games.

Lets not forget I bet you didn't have a problem with the DS/DS2 before the 360 came out
AhmadCentral  +   1022d ago
I don't agree. I actually prefer the PlayStation controller to others. It's just my personal preference but i'm willing to say that a lot of people must share my opinion if Sony have kept the analog design the same.
Ilovetheps4  +   1022d ago
I agree. I'm not sure about the majority of the population, but my thumbs are located in the same position on both of my hands. I don't know why the analog sticks would be asymmetrical. It just doesn't feel right to me. I think it's perfect the way it is on the Dualshock controllers, and I don't want them to change that.
mushroomwig  +   1022d ago
I'm so sick of this argument with the analog stick placement, for me it's perfectly placed. I'm sure you can use a third party controller if it really bothers you that much.
Karpetburnz  +   1022d ago | Well said
WTF! how is it in the wrong place? you know human thumbs are symmetric? so why should the left analog stick change? just because Xbox does it, it doesn't mean PS4 has to do it as well.
scotchmouth  +   1022d ago
Stop using common sense!
Good_Guy_Jamal  +   1022d ago
This is going to be long but bear with me.

The mature of the human hand and the symmetry of the thumbs/fingers is exactly the reason why they should change the placement of the left analogue stick.
Here are my 2 reasons:
When a person grasps an object or even makes a fist, the natural instinct is to rest the thumb as close as possible to the index finger, and not away from the index like the Dual Shock forces you to.
Go ahead and take a firm full grip on to your DS3 with just your left hand. Hold it tight so that it wouldn't go flying off if you shook your hand vigorously.
Note how instintively your thumb falls on to the D-pad and your index falls on to the L1 button with the middle finger resting underneath the controller to give it stability. The controller now rests comfortably in the palm of your hand.
That is the natural way that the hand holds on to something.
-Now with the same hand hold the DS3 like you would if you were playing a game. Note how now your thumb moves from its natural resting position and now moves down to the Left Stick, to compensate for this awkward grip, you now have to prop your palm away from the controller and it no longer rests comfortably in your palm but is now resting on your middle finger, ring finger and pinky.
Over time, this way of holding an object causes discomfort and cramping.
-The 360 controller on the other hand(same hand actually) allows you to use your hand's natural grip even when gaming. This is thanx to its shape be size and the position of the left stick. Note how your controller never leaves your palm. It rests in the palm and does not cause discomfort, at least not as quickly or severly as the ds.
Reason 2: When you play a game with an independent camera, you almost never have to use the Right Stick and so your right thumb rests on the face button the majority of the time, this is not in symmetry in the case of the DS3 as you so quickly wanted to point out. If your left thumb is down at the LS and your right thumb is up at the face buttons, how exactly is that being symmetrical?
The only genre that requires almost constant manipulation of the camera with the right stick is the shooter genre, which leaves you playing sports games, side scrolling games, fighting games, puzzle games, arcade games, hack and slash games in the unnatural not symmetric position so I'd shut up about symmetry if I were trying to argue the DS3 case.

To summarize: DS design forces you to hold it in an unnatural grip partially because of the stick positioning (man sized hands anyway), it is uncomfortable and leads to cramping.
When playing most genres, the right thumb rests on the face buttons as the right stick is seldom used. This is not symmetrical like you claimed.

You have no business gripping a game paddle that hard. You know what happens when baseball players grip their bats too hard? Fail happens.

neoMAXMLC  +   1022d ago

"When playing most genres, the right thumb rests on the face buttons as the right stick is seldom used."

This line alone invalidates your entire comment. What is the most played genre on the Xbox 360? Shooters. And what is one of the most used inputs in shooters? The right stick. You use the right stick more than you use the left stick in these types of games. So if the DualShock's left stick is in the wrong place, then so is the right stick... which means the 360's right stick is also in the wrong place... according to your logic at least.

All these so-called facts you desperately try to bring up to prove that the 360's stick placements are "correct" is nothing short of bias.

there's nothing comfortable about asymmetry.

I remember playing Halo Reach at a friend's house the other day and thought the analog stick positioning was just so awkward, the controller kept slipping out of my hands.

it's just an awkward experience everytime I play on a 360 controller.

symmetry is natural, conventional and creates functionality. Microsoft's controller just doesn't make sense.

If a large enough group of people truly had issues with that, it would have came out during the research and development stages of the controller's lifecycle (past and present). The majority of people really don't have any issue with it.
EmeraldGFX  +   1022d ago
Honestly, I think it's just a matter of preference. Some people have larger hands and need the sticks further apart like xbox, and that could feel better to them.

It's not about changing it because that's was Microsoft did. It's about keeping loyal to what their fans enjoy, and what they believe to be a great design for a controller. You may not agree, and that's perfectly fine. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

the complainers have mutant hands. also did anyone stop to think maybe the reason why the left stick on 360 controllers is in the wrong spot because maybe Sony has a patent on the placement of them? just a thought.
supremacy  +   1022d ago
I honestly dont believe for a second, that the layout is as important as you imply.

Simply put, if the controller is slighter bigger heavier and feels comfortable to hold in your hands for long gaming sessions is a good sign.

The other thing is, the analog sticks are different from the ones found in previous PlayStation controllers. They keep stressing how tighter they feel as oppose to how loose they currently are in the dualshock 3 controller, not to mention there is more space between them. Thats huge, and essentially eliminates any for needing an Apple like lawsuit in your hands, just for the sake of a few opinions.

PlayStation controllers are designed for PlayStation consoles, xbox controllers are designed for xbox consoles. Its what seperates them, and gives them their own identity in a sense; why cant some just accept that?

Playing on on this layout for almost 20 years. Can't imagine the stick where dpad is. Not on DS. Also, I held proto DS4 in hand (we have a PS4 devkit). You guys will really love it. Especially the grips and R2/L2 triggers. Very, very comfortable. Not sure I'm a fan of concaved/convexed hybrid sticks though. It's wierd but they feel more slippery then DS3 for me. And they're smaller which isn't helping either. The springiness is perfect though. Still, it's a proto and doesn't have final materials. I'm sure retail version will be even more awesome.

I'm sure the battery life will be fine. The DS3 lasts ages without needing to be recharged. Also now with the DS4 you won't need to turn on your console to recharge it like you do with the PS3. You can have your PS4 shut off and still be able to charge the controller.

The battery life is 2x the dualshock3 because DS3 has a Li-Ion 600 mAh battery and DS4 has Li-Ion 1000 mAh.

So, said this, the DS3 lasts 30 hours, DS4 would last 50/+ hours i guess.

Other than that it looks pretty damn good.

Back when they first showed the share button at the reveal event, I didn't think much of it. Now however, I realize it's a fantastic idea. I cant count the amount of times I feel like i had an epic moment in just cause 2, then to be sad because I didn't have a PVR.

Paul Thurott is the guy who predicted this event didn't he and some other stuff

He might be right on the always online thing, if it's true then they are in trouble

That dude said the May date about 4 weeks ago!
Top that off... he is the most informed MSFT blogger... he does have insiders.

Heres a copy/paste of what he said.

Here Comes the Next Xbox {Many
Xbox 720 Details - Paul Thurrott
article} [Updated] # 1
Nothing groundbreaking info but
interesting nonetheless
Early announce . The initial reveal
date was pushed back from April 24
to May 21 so that Microsoft could
better position the device against the
PlayStation 4, which Sony announced
in late February.
Full (end user) announce . Microsoft
will fully reveal details about the next
Xbox, including the launch lineup of
games, on the eve of the E3
tradeshow in early June 2013.
Developer announce? It appears that
Microsoft will discuss the next Xbox
developer platform at the Build
conference in San Francisco in late
June, based on clues on the Build
web site.
Launch. The next Xbox will launch in
early November 2013.
Windows 8 Core . The next Xbox is
based on the "Core" (base) version
of Windows 8. This suggests a
common apps platform or at least
one that is similar to that used by
Windows 8, and further than
Microsoft could open up this platform
to enthusiast developers. (That last
bit is supposition on my part.)
Price . Microsoft will initially offer two
pricing models for the console,
offering a standalone version for $
499 and then a $299 version that
requires a two-year Xbox LIVE Gold
commitment at an expected price of
$10 per month.
No entertainment box. Microsoft
originally planned to offer both a
“full” version of the next Xbox (with
video game playing capabilities) and
a lower-end entertainment-oriented
version, codenamed “Yuma,” that did
not provide video gaming
capabilities. But plans for Yuma are
on hold and no pure entertainment
version of the next Xbox will appear
in 2013 (or possibly ever).
Blu-ray . The next Xbox will include a
Blu-ray optical drive.
Internet-connected. The next Xbox
must be internet-connected to use.
This is source of the “always
on”/“always online” rumors and isn’t
as Draconian as many seem to
Another Xbox 360 . Microsoft will also
deliver a third generation Xbox 360
console this year that will be
significantly less expensive than the
current models. The new 360 is
codenamed “Stingray,” but it’s not
clear if this device is required
because the next Xbox isn’t
backwards compatible, or because
Microsoft simply wants a low-cost
entertainment box alternative. (A third
possibility, and to be clear these
possible reasons are all speculative:
The 360 simply has life left in it and
with dwindling component prices in
the 8 years since the original launch,
the firm can still make money selling
such a device.)

Really liking the new controller. The SHARE button will come very handy when i dismember a titans head in the next GOW
WUTCHUGUNNADO  +   1022d ago
Seems like both consoles require a camera being pointed at you for some features to work...

Haha... I expect Watch Dogs to do some creepy things with that feature.
