Killzone: Shadow Fall dev on DualShock 4: “We really pushed them to make better triggers that go up"

Killzone: Shadowfall is the next-gen title available exclusively and will be released alongside PlayStation 4. Developed by Guerilla Games, a Sony owned studio, Guerilla Games made a name for themselves when they released Killzone way back on to the PlayStation 2. Dubbed by many as the Halo killer, the original Killzone fell short of many things and was felt as a rushed title.

Im glad Sony decided to make the triggers curved upwards. One of my main gripes with the DS3.

shivvy241749d ago

Yep I remember when I first picked up the controller, was kinda put off with the curve ,, sorry accidently downvoted

I can't stand all other Playstation controllers.

I really want a PS4 though, so I'm hoping the DS4 is changed up enough to be fun to use.

That was my only real complaint for the DualShock 3. Thankfully those cheap $2 trigger attachments do wonders for the controller. Never had any issues since I attached them.

Now that I think about, I wonder why Sony never altered the triggers in the middle of the lifecycle? I wouldn't think changing one part in manufacturing would hurt them considering many would go out just to by the more trigger friendly controller.

I used to use those attachments too. Then one day they fell off. And I they wouldn't stay on anymore. They just kept falling off when I'd react and shoot quickly. Now I realize I don't actually need the triggers. I think the DS3 is fine the way it is. I just think people aren't used to it at first, but once my added triggers became useless I came to accept the DS3 as it is. I love the DS3 and I just hope the DS4 continues the tradition of Sony having the most comfortable and versatile controller. Nov 15 hurry up already.

People complain about the triggers but the truth is that after the first year or so devs realised what worked better with the DS3 design was R1 and L1 for shooting mechanics, only a few games during the last couple of years force you to use the R2 button to shoot

It always made me wonder if those devs even bothered playing their own game on the PS3 or just ported it and done? I'm mean as a proffesional you should always try to find the best button layout in each least give the possibility of remapping the buttons

Only with those games that forced you to use R2/L2 I experienced problems otherwise I enjoyed without any problems the rest of the shooters I played on PS3.

Ps. I'm starting to refer to the PS3 in past tense:) after Beyond:Two Souls not sure if I will buy more stuff for PS3, PS4 will take over.

DigitalRaptor1749d ago (Edited 1749d ago )

Honestly? I really wish they'd give us the choice to map our own buttons.

I completely agree about the L1 and R1. If all games from now on used those 2 buttons for shooting, I'd be happy. But I think a choice is in order.

Exactly.. The 360 controller had an edge over the DS3 because of this, glad its been taking care of.. Now bring it on killzone shadow fall!

MizTv1749d ago

Sorry but the d pad sucks so bad
Il takes shitty triggers over that any day of the week

MazzingerZ1749d ago

Yeah, more bad memories about the 360 d-pad that the DS3 triggers(read my post above regarding DS3)

I recall playing Oblivion and wasting spells and running like crazy backwards trying to get the d-pad to choose what I needed just then:S

Otherwise nice controller

Am I the only one that likes the DS3 triggers? L1 and R1 are the best triggers evar! Oh you mean R2 and L2? There were hardly any games that used that setup, so I never had any complaints. I always felt that L1 to aim and R1 or X to shoot should be the default setup for every game ever since I played RE4 back in 2005.
