DualShock 4 vs. DualShock 3

Just how similar is the new PlayStation 4 controller to the one that PlayStation 3 gamers have been using for nearly seven years? At a PlayStation event in New York City yesterday, kotaku were able to put a model of the DualShock 4 up against a DualShock 3. (PS3, PS4, Sony)

The dual shock 3 was and is, a great controller but is just a little too small for my hands. I found myself buying third party contollers. With the DS4 I hope that the increased size will fit better in my hand for those extended plays of Killzone Shadow Fall.

the dualshock 4 seems perfect in every aspect, can't wait to try it! :)

I agree. I'm loving the fact that they made it bigger. Now I just need to get my hands on it.

I think because i been gaming on sega to nintendo to sony I have always like the DS and because it was consistant to design i just got used to it, I guess they were expecting a even newer generation of gamers to come to the PS and they redisgned the controller to suite more people? looks cool though, infact so does the Xbone controller

DS4 > DS3

too many wrong things with the DS3. It is playable but the triggers and stick placements were not catering to the games. The design of the DS fit more so on ps1 gen and ps2.

I am really glad they overhauled the ds3 controller... not just of the bells and whistles.... but the comfort and feel.

I love the controller. I think I'm most impressed by how small the PS camera is, though. I'm noot sure if I'll be picking one up, I'm going to wait and see how games use it, if at all. But I still like it a lot.

Also, I'm hoping that my current PS3 controller charger will also be compatible with the PS4 controllers.

How can people make that judgement call without even touching a DS4?

Can anyone tell me what that second port in the front is, the one right next to the audio jack?
Becuzisaid  +   500d ago
I was wondering that too. I thought it was the USB charge port, but then saw that it was on top like the DS3.

I just saw a hardware spec sheet and its labeled as an "extension port" ...lol that didn't clear it up for me

Audio aux data connector, usually for mic input, volume control, etc...

Even more shorter sticks???? WTF? More height means more precision... I guess this time the sticks extenders are a MUST.

I love my Dualshock, and it looks like they just found subtle improvements to it, which is perfect. I don't want a totally new controller, so I'm glad they just modified it a little bit. If they would've scrapped the Dualshock design for the PS4 it wouldn't even have felt like a Playstation at all, rather than a totally different console in my opinion.

Dualshock 4 is going to be my new favourite controller, sorry Dualshock 3 I promise to visit every once in awhile ;)
