DICE was showing Battlefield 4 to convention attendees at Gamescom in Cologne. The Battlefield 4 Gamescom demo was running on the PlayStation 4 hardware, and pushing all that 60 FPS goodness. But according to a recent post on the PlayStation Blog, who put the game through its paces at the show, the improved DualShock could give Battlefield 4 a leg up on the competition, or at least a better experience than the PS3.
According to a Sony representative who got hands on with the Dualshock and Battlefield 4: “The overhauled L2 and R2 triggers wrap snugly around your index fingers and respond crisply to every input, giving a satisfyingly precise and tactile feel as you fire your weapons. In the build I played, L1 and R1 handled grenades and a radial command menu, respectively. Tapping down on the PS4’s refined directional pad cycled through weapon firing modes (semi-auto, burst fire, and fully automatic fire), while tapping left deployed class-specific equipment such as the Engineer’s RPG.”
