Many devs like the DS4 as it really does add a whole lot more to the gameplay experience. As a gamer the only flaw I see is it's battery.

Having played the PS4 version of the game (woo!) in a dark room on my own (ahh!), I can confirm that it does actually add a lot to the game - probably the only time I've really noticed and enjoyed the lightbar. Best use od DS4 so far, no gimmick

DirtyMagician1495d ago

I quite liked the use of the lightbar during the Destiny beta, when your flashlight turned on, the lightbar increased in brightness. It was a nice little touch.

I like the sound of this along with the beeping that will come from the DS4 speaker.

MasterCornholio1495d ago

Don't forget the torch in Tomb Raider. That's also a really heat way to use the light bar. Anyways I hope the game is good cause I'm dying to play a good survival horror SciFi game.

Yeah, I found it to add immersion in Tomb Raider! +

"My favourite version is the PS4 version – and I say that as a massive Microsoft fan – so to say the PS4 version is my favourite feels a bit weird"
Glad they are being honest

I love how devs are starting to use the light bar and built-in speakers of the DualShock4 controller in new and immersive ways.

I forgot what the name was, but it was the free PS Plus game, where the guy has a pink hand coming out of his head. In that game, it was neat how you can use the hand to grab onto other NPC's to hear the thoughts in their head. The voice in their head would come from the speakers on the controller. Small feature, but a feature that adds more immersion to the game.

that's stick to the man you're talking about. Great game, I enjoyed that feature too.

Yeah it's good to see that the so called "gimmicky" features of the Dualshock 4 can actually benefit games with a more immersive experience.

LazyGoron1495d ago

Agreed... design fits so snug in my hands. I am getting my blue beauty DS4 today :)

Destiny10801495d ago

that paper game from gamescom they had a feature where the DS4 controlled a torch, that would be epic in a horror game

*Gives Gore-Content's Dualshock 4 an abuse hotline card*

I wish they would use the speaker on the PS4 remote to make the alien noise when was is near you :3.

@Chuk All in fun :P.

the speaker is one of the best features of the DS4

S2Killinit1495d ago

thats a cool idea actually. Some games are using the speaker and its awesome i have to say.

zsquaresoff1495d ago

I don't know about anybody else, but since i've started using DS4, my aiming has improved immensely.

Taking head shots is so much more easier to do than it was on DS3.

_FantasmA_1495d ago

It was already easy on the DS3, DS4 just makes them almost automatic! Just kidding I'm not that good but I do average about 4-6 headshots in a Killzone match.

My hype for this game is unhealthy.
