That controller is perfect.

Gimic touchpad, but the larger size is a welcome change.
OrangePowerz  +   369d ago
Let`s wait and see if the touchpad will be a gimmick. It could be but it could also be a great addition but we don`t know yet.

Touchpad works for menu management. On the plus side, SONY will make a killing on the PC once it's supported.

Tried the ds4 today at best buy in orange Ca. I was surprised at how the touch pad is a clikable button. Like its literaly a large raised button, the whole thing clicks when you press down on it. Gives the possability of click drag and drop type stuff.

Its new it must be a gimmick.

Unfortunately, the click-drag-drop part of the DS4 touchpad isn't available for the current PC-compatibility. I use controller for Steam and if DS4 has PC-touchpad capability, it'll be so much better. Maybe in an update driver?

On another note, a lot PC-based indie games utilized the mouse-action, like the casual hidden objects games. Touchpad on the DS4 would be a great support.

I guess mouses and trackpads are gimics too...
NeoTribe  +   368d ago
The touch can actually be extremely useful. Little big planet is gonna do some amazing things with it. Rts games may actually become console relevant to ps4. Watch playroom rebots to see more of what itsused for. Gimmicks would be kinect.
christrules0041  +   368d ago
Actually I find it to not be a gimic. Not when every game uses it. But it gives 5 extra commands. Click, down, left, right and up. Killzone Shadowfall wouldn't have the owl without it. Ac4 you control the map. Infamous Second Son uses it for other things like powering up your powers. Some games are using it for menu navagation. The list goes on and on too.

"But it gives 5 extra commands. Click, down, left, right and up."

You're on the right track, but not thinking big enough.

upper right click
lower right click
upper left click
lower left click
left side down up swipe
left side up down swipe
right side down up swipe
ride side up down swip
left right swipe
right left swipe
etc... could add functionality of a dozen "buttons" or more.

It's funny, because I actually tend to like what people call "gimmicks." This looks pretty neat! I wonder what they'll do with it.

"Gimmicks" are the name people give to innovative new ideas. Sometimes they work out, and sometimes they don't. I wouldn't judge it unless you've tried it out.

@Reese

So when people call Kinect or Occulus Rift a gimmick, you gunna stand by the statement? Or u a typical brainwashed n4sony fanboy?

White has always been the best colour for PS controllers. IMO

I can't do white. I hate seeing the dirt when I'm eating and gaming. Lol. On the topic I wonder how many times gamers have gotten pizza sauce on their mics.... Lol.

White looks really good on that controller.
sAVAge_bEaST  +   369d ago
StormTrooper approved, Freshness verified, -white is the new black.
Shake_Zula  +   368d ago
I think Sony has more to gain by reducing the stock of the all black controllers. I mean, the colored ones just stand out more IMO.
Killjoy3000  +   368d ago
What many are failing to realize is that developers don't have to use the touch pad just for gimmicky melee attacks and quick time events. However, they can utilize it as an extension of the D-Pad. Why have a single D-Pad, when you can have 2?

For instance, just an example, I'm not a CoD player, but when I would play I always found it annoying scrolling through the kill streaks by pushing the D-Pad one direction multiple times. They could do it so that your lowest killstreak, you swipe left, your second highest, swipe up, and your highest swipe right.

It can also be used to undertake more functions for PC ports where there are more actions than a gamepad can allow. It essentially adds more buttons and input in a non-confusing way.

Stop automatically attaching the word "gimmick," to the first new thing you hear about.

Instead, use your brain.

FITgamer  +   369d ago
Looks nice, the only thing i don't like about white controllers is if you don't clean them often they get that dingy look after a while from your hands sweating. At least the original 360 controllers did.
HighResHero  +   369d ago
The white is very sexy.
If Sony doesn't offer white I may have to customize my own.

I've got the black one, but I definitely want a white for the contrast.
BABY-JEDI  +   369d ago
It's white. Get a life. When it starts talking to me within a pro-active manner then I will go YES this is the way to go.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   369d ago
Who spit in your cereal this morning?

It's a pretty sexy controller, in my opinion. I'd want one.
BABY-JEDI  +   369d ago
So next week you'll see a red one & the same comment will apply. What about a blue one ect. Point being I personally would like to see a little more imagination applied before i get on that sexy train LoL. But in fairness it is an excellent design which doesn't need much to make it great!
Ps no one has spat in my weetabix yet LoL
I hope

15mins and $3 can of plastic bonding spray paint, so doing this to my dualshock 4 when i get it
jeffgoldwin  +   369d ago
Fyi having done several projects involving spray paint, no matter what kind you use, they all scratch and chip pretty easy. Not something you generally want to be handeling or touching.
Jae_Blaze06  +   369d ago
I've been saying this since they announce the controller, it would look breathtaking in White. I can't seem to comprehend why in the world Sony would opt for a red and blue controller over a white controller, and possibly a blue one. Baffles me to be honest... But I'm glad someone took initiative and made one.

xKugo  +   369d ago
Got my DS4 sitting right next to my G510s keyboard and thing is just beautiful. It feels great, markedly better feel and texture makeup than the DS3(which I loved). Can't wait to start playing some block-buster titles with it...

:D
strigoi814  +   369d ago
goodness. i love it
Popoffboy187718  +   369d ago
The ds4 is the big reason I love the ps4. That touch pad is going to change the game, the ideas put into ps4 is truly AMAZING!!! Just paid off my ps4 !!!! Do I have to camp even tho I preorder? I went threw wal mart?
