The PS4 wins the next-gen battle thanks to dog petting

In Valiant Hearts, a new game about World War I from Ubisoft, you can pet a dog by using the touch pad on a PlayStation 4 controller. Just rub the touch pad while your dog companion is nearby and you'll pet it in the game. (PS4, Valiant Hearts)

You lie. You lost both your arms to that ferocious bear. You can't pet your dog.

I'm sure if u whistle on ps cam or kinect the dog will come?
360ICE  +   660d ago
No, that's like the generation after that. One dog feature at a time. Whistling takes up a lot of the GPU.
showtimefolks  +   660d ago
and here i thought games generation is won via delivering excellent games and services but i guess petting games could get your support of all dog loving people lol and those who hate Vick

go eagles lol

What will happen if I touch the touch pad against the grain?

They should add this function for the CoD, PS4 version for your attack dog.

lol, this is nintendo's nightmare :)
Godmars290  +   660d ago
If I tap the pad do I hit the dog?
zerocrossing  +   660d ago
At least it's dog petting, and not the other kind...
Snookies12  +   660d ago

fenome  +   660d ago
zerocrossing  +   660d ago
Of course, what else could I mean ;)
Snookies12  +   660d ago

GiantEnemyCrab  +   660d ago
But does it have AI Fish?
Godmars290  +   660d ago
If its not in this game, guess you're S.O.L..
fghtrer3fb5erg  +   660d ago
I dunno what you lot are talking about but i got a 8 month old lion in my back yard.
Petting is so last-gen. Sony is just trying to copy the success of Kinectimals.
Dropdeadll  +   660d ago
Who wants to pet my dog?
BG11579  +   660d ago
Uh the game is coming to the PS4, PS3, 360 and Xbone...
The peting dog with the touchscreen is just gimmicky.
Yet the game looks fantastic!

Here's the french trailer of the game:

Are dogs the new fad of next-gen, like water physics and the color brown was for this Gen.
ziggurcat  +   660d ago
dog petting, and fish AI?
Sarobi  +   660d ago
The title for next generation should simply be "Dogs"
TheGrimReaper0011  +   659d ago
This doesnt look gimmicky at all!
... wait, yes it does
Honestly, as much as I'm for the PS4, i really hope devs use that touchpad for something interesting. Everything i've seen looks so gimmicky!
