The DualShock 4's Touchpad Is Your Pal in The Witcher 3 on PS4

Ever since the PlayStation 4's announcement, the touchpad on the DualShock 4 has seemed like a bit of a gimmick.

"if you hold it down for a second or two, you'll be transported directly to your inventory page"

Nice, didn't know that

Offt topic but does anyone know how to clean the touchpad? Mine's covered in greasy fingerprints...I tried my shirt, napkins, paper towels, and a soft damp towel but you can still see the bloody fingerprints.

Oh I haven't thought of that. I'm gonna go try it out, thanks.

No probelm, I was going to say sandpaper as a joke but thought i'd be useful, I use baby wipes, I squeeze some of the wetness out of them first before I use em

Air cans, and disinfectant wipes are what I use for my gaming cleaning needs as well. Wring them out, and voila.

You need a alcohol based cleaner to break up the grease, something like a window cleaner, then wipe away the residue with a damp cloth or baby wipe as Hellsvacancy suggests.

i use a tissue with small amount of hand sanitiser on it.

OMG thanks for this. I was already angry because looking at the map took me many steps. Now with this is going to be very easy.

For me this is a very good feature.

The Dualshock 4's sure a lot more comfortable than playing The Witcher 3 on a PS3 might've been...
