That controller is perfect.

Gimic touchpad, but the larger size is a welcome change.

OrangePowerz1006d 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.

KnaveX1006d ago

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...

NeoTribe1006d 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.

christrules00411006d 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?

Absolutely beautiful, perfect controller.

PS3Freak1006d ago (Edited 1006d ago )

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

_FantasmA_1006d ago (Edited 1006d ago )

Here comes Al Sharpton, the fake reverend attention w**re just because you said white.

ion531006d ago

Not for $100 plus $50 shippin'. That like £100. No thanks mate.

AbortMission1005d ago

Eww. Why would he ruin the DS4 controllers with such an ugly design?

cannon88001006d ago

I just received my Dualshock 4 controller today! It's so comfortable!

BX811006d ago

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.

Zancruz1005d ago

*Raises Hand* I got sauce on my mic last night while playing GTA Online.... :)

White looks really good on that controller.

sAVAge_bEaST1006d ago

StormTrooper approved, Freshness verified, -white is the new black.

Shake_Zula1006d 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.

Killjoy30001005d ago (Edited 1005d 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.
