GTA 5 will have some pretty… interesting features on PlayStation 4 using the DualShock 4 controller.
good use of the DS4, i skipped this on ps3 in the hope it would come to ps4, so i will pick this up.
i like how the devs are using the neon, not vital or useful or anything but fun none the less. i still think the lightbar should have been on the upper side of the controller. light falling on your face from below it gives a nice ambient feel without reflecting on the screen . not just that it could light up buttons during dark it was in the front for the camera thing which is barely ever used
Would have been so cool if the DS4 had been slighty opaque, and it glowed like the lightbar.
Controller exclusive features... lol
The LED was placed where it is...because it has to be picked up by the camera, for games and Morpheus that use motion tracking. It wouldnt have worked so well, if it had been on the upper part of the controller.
Kind of Cool. I wonder if they will use the touch pad for phone or internet browsing. Also hope you can turn this off, that will be very distracting to people sleeping around you
You are SOOOOO lucky. I wish I had now. You are gonna b blown away. And i was actually thinking about that for Sleeping Dogs. What if the lights flashed and u could hear sirens in the speaker? To be honest, while Dragon Age will most likely be my personal GotY, barring anything crazy happening, if GTA5 hadn't been last gen, it may have been GotY. It may still be the most next gen game released this yr. Far Cry and AC look good, just wondering how evolved the actual gameplay will be from last gen.
I played it on ps3 once through on story and am just excited about playing it again on ps4 all over again it's such a great gta.
This feature is going to make me giggle like a 10 yr old child
That's actually kinda cool.
Finally, someone uses the full potential of the DS4..
Prepare to charge your controller very often xD
play while you charge, so no problem at all.
Or even better, have more than one controller so one is always charged and waiting for action.
Hold your finger on the charging socket on the back of the controller and rub your feet on your carpet while you play. Never charge your controller again.
That's pretty cool. When the cops chase after my controller will emulate the lighting affect that the lights produce. Since I play in the dark I'll notice this for sure. Pretty neat in my opinion.
Sounds cool but i feel like it'll get annoying soon. All the rumble that happens when you drive or have a popped tire, and strobing lights would kill the battery so fast
Another gimmicky idea. The light bar may have uses with the camera however changing colors during gameplay isn't something I ever notice because I'm not looking at the controller I'm looking at the screen.
The light bar is actually part of Sony's motion control technology and it will be used once Project Morpheus hits the market later next year.
I mentioned it working with the camera, aka motion like the glowing ball on the wand.
I meant changing color during gameplay is a gimmick I understand the use with motion.
A bit unnecessary feature seeing we cant see the strobe light unless your in a very very very dark room.. But hey its something.
The article also mentions using the DS4 speaker for phonecalls and the touchpad for weapon/radio select.
How's about 'a dark room'? 'A very very very dark room' sort of gives away the desperation to downplay it as much as humanly possibly. Like just a regular dark room will have no effect, it has to be inhumanly dark. we're talking super mega ultra dark, you're gonna have to create a black hole in the corner of the room to begin to see any effect. How about this next time, 'Meh, doesn't make much difference to me as I never play in the dark anyway but should be cool for people who do'. See? Then you get to soothe your pain by downplaying the slightest good point of a console you don't own without giving away just how pathetic you're being.
"Then you get to soothe your pain by downplaying the slightest good point of a console you don't own without giving away just how pathetic you're being." http://psnprofiles.com/WitW... Do you even lift bro?
So if you don't have the camera, what's the point of this???Im going to be looking at my tv screen while I play, not staring down at the different color lights flashing on my controller...or is the point to have the flashing lights reflect off of my tv screen and distract me while I'm playing. And if you do have the camera, you can easily look at the amount of stars you have on screen to see if you're wanted or not).
"or is the point to have the flashing lights reflect off of my tv screen and distract me while I'm playing" You mean like when cop car lights flash in your face reflected from your rearview mirror? Its called immersion mate, enjoy.
