Sony: 'Everything's been tuned' with PS4 controller

Hot on the heels of Microsoft's invitation to check out the next Xbox, Sony pushed out a shiny, new YouTube video highlighting the added features of the PlayStation 4 controller, along with a healthy peppering of praise from its creators.
"Everything's been tuned -- the feel of the analog sticks, the sensitivity of both different types of triggers," Scott Rohde, PlayStation product development SVP, says in the video.

that touchpad looks similar to vita's rear touchpad...
anyway things are looking good for ps4 ^_^

Yeah its the same tech, i for one would have liked the touchpad to go on the back and put a small screen where it currently is.

The small screen doesnt have to be lcd or even display color, it could simply be a screen that displays notifications and the ps logo or time when on standby.

I was just thinking the other day, being in a scenario where i am not in the same room as the ps4 and i get a message icon pop up on my controller. From there i could either read the text message, or simply listen to a voice message via the controller's speaker. Or even view updates, and friends list and trophies; now you dont need a huge screen to do display any of this, just one the same size of the current touchpad.

I know, i know this would probably make the controller more expensive, and use more battery, but i just coulent help but think of such an idea.

@sandmano and @Cupid_Viper_3

I get where you guys are coming from, and believe me i have a vita and in fact i am using one to write this reply. But here is the problem with that, i am not talking about going outside my house or to a different place altogether, so a vita wouldnt be needed.

Also, vita as far as i am concerned, i dont think will come bundle with every ps4 sold, but neither does a phone or tablet but again my point remains, i am not talking about having to need a second screen designed for commute rides and what not. I am just merely suggesting a controller packing a simple touch screen for simple tasks like notification checking and the like. Plus all this talk about being social and intergrated along with the idea of keeping your psn id in your controller would simply make sense with what i am merely suggesting.

I don't know if you have played the vita but the rear touch pad is often annoying to use its all about the touch screen. I'm glad it's on the front.

On a side note I wonder if the next xboxs controller will be redefined.

I think that's why Sony has the PS Vita. All the stuff you mentioned, the PS Vita does it all. I don't have a keyboard attached to my PS3 so when I get messages, I use the PS Vita's on-screen keyboard to answer, even when I'm away from home.

i rather they leave this like this and update PS4 firmware so i can link this with my xperia phone and check mess and stuff from there, caring PS4 controller around just for mess is just doesnt feel right for me

Just like the D-Pad is similar to vita's D-Pad. Overall I really like the Controller from the looks of it. The only thing I'm a little bit sceptical about is the integrated speaker.

A man has his Pulse headphones to use (Playstation ones with 7.1 surround) so a man isn't worried about that.

Indeed my fellow player indeed ;)

At the back of the touchpad on vita, there is XO[]/\ in lines, if you look at the ps4's tp it is only little holes. I think XO/\[] would be a bit better tbh
