PlayStation 4 Games That Use The DualShock 4’s Touchpad

GOS: "One of the many features of the DualShock 4 is a clickable touchpad that rests on top of the controller. It offers a new way for gamers to interact with PS4 games, but we don’t know how many next generation titles will use this feature. All will be revealed soon enough, and here are four games we know of that will use the DualShock 4’s touchpad." (PS4)

Battlefield 4 weapon menus... Fifa formation... invertory menus... sandbox maps including pinch zoom, patterns shortcuts for inventory items/magics...

It is not a stupid gimmick, is going to be awesome.

That's what people said about six axis.
Redrum059  +   594d ago
and I still love the feature in games (mainly playstation exclusives) that do use it.

Come on now. Using six axis to arc a grenade in the Uncharted series is awesome or using it in a flying game that supports it.

browsing the internet like using the track pad is a good start.

I love the older PS2 games that use the analog stick to draw out a magic symbol. Now we can use the touchpad!

Looking forward to how the touchpad will benefit gaming; same thing with the Kinect 2.0.
MasterCornholio  +   594d ago
I believe that most developers will use Kinect 2.0 for voice commands more than anything else. Which is why I question the use of Kinect with the console.

IMO

Outside of Kinect, this tech's bigger picture is 3D engineering and home automation,(outside of Microsoft, I forget the name of the two gentlemen behind it).
Think it's creepy to monitor your circulatory system? How about if your grandparent is having a heart attack alone in their home and a machine can contact emergency services? Very cool!
TheUndertaker85  +   594d ago
Gotta ask...

If your grandparent has heart conditions like that, what in the great blue hell are they going to use Kinect for?

I really liked how they were controlling the OWL using the track pad and the fact that the pad can function as an additional button. The only gimmick that I see in the controller is the light bar.

The light bar is a gimmick but it's kinda cool if you split screen and the PS Eye changes your screens so your in order. That way if you have a party and people are playing games you don't always have to reposition everytime to get the right view on what side your playing.
mkotechno  +   594d ago
Well the light bar is actually an oversized player number displayer:

P1. Blue (x)
P2. Red (circle)
P3. Green (triangle)
P4. Purple (square)

I've been confused from the beginning when everyone starting saying how it's just a gimmick. Maybe because I was already envisioning tons of ideas of what it could be used for in-game. At the very least, it adds a couple more buttons to the layout. The simplest being 1 - the clickable button, 2 - swipe up, 3 - swipe down, 4 - swipe left, 5 - swipe right. So, 5 extra buttons for the most basic usage in-game, without devs thinking indepth at all.

I love the addition of the touchpad personally. The devs also don't seem to view at as a silly gimmick, they're already thinking up deeper ways to utilize it, to immerse you into the game more.

I'm sure Quantic Dream will have a field day with the touchpad.
Vaud-Villian  +   594d ago
I hope its use is limited and optional. I'm so tired of swipe actions on my phone, I don't want it infecting my console gaming.
SynestheticRoar  +   594d ago
Good news awesome. Look forward to all the ways to play with it. Thanks gamesonsmash.com.
Tatsuya  +   594d ago
I like the sound of this, it will surely change the way we play games. Personally, I hope all devs will use and implement the touchpad for all PS4 games. It is there to be used not for showing off. Can't wait to be playing all four games listed, pre ordered them all already :)

Am I the only one thinking of a game where you throw ninja stars? Or a way to slice stuff?
pwnsause_returns  +   594d ago
would work well with a game like Okami, thats for sure
