Kotaku - At Sony's E3 booth, they've got a PlayStation 4 on display and playable. You can't get to the console itself, but the controller is just hanging out, waiting for people to mess around with it. So that's just what we did.
It looks bigger in video than it does in pictures. I hope the face buttons (square, triangle, etc) are still analog / pressure sensitive.
I'm sure they said they are ditching the pressure sensitive buttons as only a handful of games used it. Disappointing for me, much prefer using them for accel/brake
I first learned of the pressure sensitive back in the ps2 era with metalgearsolid 3 snake eater
I never noticed a difference tbh
Left click and Right click on the trackpad? I wonder if they'll use the trackpad as a cursor for the web browser with left click and right click, that would be great, and much faster than the analog sticks. The web browser MAY be important this time around, as you can leave it running in the background while gaming.
I wish I could hold it...but I have to wait so long...
It looks very comfortable. Not so crampy looking if that makes sense.
Wow that look good.. That touch pad built in to the gamepad is very cool. Have you seen the PS4 "Playroom" demo?. It's awesome
Looks really impressive.
Looks better, the PS3 counterpart was horrid and feels cheap.
...like a cheap Chinese carpet haha! But seriously I have never gotten used to the PS3 controller, I would have pent much more time on my PS3 this gen had the the controller felt more comfortable,the PS4 controller looks like a massive step in the rite direction,to me anyway...
I have large hands, a larger controller is good news to me. Also first post ever!
Welcome to N4G!
looks perfect for my hands can't wait for the gamers expo.
like 2 dicks conjoined together at the base.
If there is one thing i never understood and had problems with since the 1st playstation is why the digital dpad is split into buttons. It was such a pain trying to play street fighter and going up-right just to jump forward and having it simply go up. Sure it worked after trying it a few times but it sure was annoying...as well as doing semi circles and alike...i guess i'll have to deal with it again and hope some 3rd party comes out with a full digital pad...ah well.
I plan on getting a PS4, but the pad is my biggest concern. I loath the PS3 pad, the weak analogue sticks, the slippery triggers... I pray to God each day that I like the new PS4 controller. I wish Sony would release a separate offset pad though at retail. Options are nice.
tactile, it's like all the buttons are popping out at you, the versatility of the DS3 was great, because it fit every genre well, but now it seems to suit every genre really well, and is much ore suiting for the most common genre... the shooter.
