Introduction and Thoughts About Touch Controls on a Console

PJ, author from MAXKOE, shares his thoughts on the new Dualshock controller for the PlayStation 4.

He goes on to write, "In some cases, the results seem like they could really enhance the experience, but in others, it removes you from it, and turns it into something like a mini-game".

What do you guys think? Will the new touch controls be useful? Or will they be forgotten months after the consoles launch and never used again?

The story is too old to be commented.

I don't get the complaint, of looking at the controller,.

-do you look at the controller now? no
-do you look at the touch pad on your laptop? no

It's a touch pad, not a screen to look at. -it will be implemented as more buttons to you, which is a good thing.

Exactly. It will probably be mostly used for the Start and Select buttons.

He never complained about looking at the PS4 controller not the screen. Where did you get that?

He was discussing his thoughts on the usefulness and implementation of the touch button on the Dual Shock 4.

I think it will end up being used in great ways.

Hopefully it's not overused.

I wouldn't mind if it was made into an integral part for some games. I just hope that it wouldnt inhibit game play.
