'Beyond: Two Souls' will dictate how Quantic Dream uses the PS4 touch pad

Beyond: Two Souls is only weeks away from being released by Quantic Dream and Sony Computer Entertainment and while there are many expectations from consumers for this title, Quantic also wants to know people's reaction to the new feature called Beyond Touch.

Today, David Cage, founder of Quantic Dream, discussed what factors are going to play into whether or not and how the studio ends up using the PS4 touch pad. (Beyond: Two Souls, David Cage, PS3, PS4, Quantic Dream)

It shouldn't be a matter of whether or not, unless Sony wants this feature on their controller to become absolutely useless. TBH I don't really see the value in a front facing touchpad, but I am sure they will come up with some ways to utilize it.

Having had time with this thing on AC IV, I really don't see the use for it, right now. I think the best uses for it will come out of first party developers, not third parties. Ubisoft has to worry about both Xbox One and PS4, as do other third parties, so I won't expect anything groundbreaking from them. It's going to have to come from first party developers. Seems cool though, I hope they make a go of it or else that's a big waste of space on the DualShock.

yeah, totally agree I think 3rd party developers will wait to see what the big boys will do with it to get inspired. It's kind of like the Wii U gamepad and how most developers originally had no clue how to use it, but we'll see more and more interesting ways to utilize it during gameplay.

I don't think one game is going to make or break the future uses of the touch pad.

Personally it appeals to me outside of gaming. Navigating web pages, zooming on and out etc I'm sure we'll see a lot of innovative (hate to use that word) uses for the touch pad. Whether in game or in apps.

I was optimistic about the touch pad at first, came across as a little gimmicky.

If anyone can utilise a touch pad effectively, whether it be pattern based powers or QTE's, we can all bet Quantic Dream are the kind of people that will pull it off seamlessly.
