Great photo comparison between the DualShock 3 and 4

Gamesbeat, the video games reporting side of Venturebeat have taken some fantastic snaps illustrating the difference between the buttons and sticks of the DualShock 4 and 3. Check them out after the break.

For more comparison images and an excellecent interview with the man behind the new controller, Toshimasa Aoki, SCE’s product planning department manager, check out the article at Gamesbeat.

No pictures of the triggers? As they have changed as well in a very good way.

yeah, no kidding- That's actually one of their biggest changes.

"Shorter = less precise movements…"

But what good is precision when you have a poor grip due to bad ergonomics?

Bad ergonomics?

The DS4 looks way more ergonomic compared to the DS3. The handles look like they will be alot more comfortable to grip.

Also the texture at the back of the controller. It feels sooo good.

I think you misunderstood what I wrote, I was implying that the DS3 has bad ergonomics which makes it's high precision irrelevant. However, I have no issues with the DS4's design as you seem to think.

Let me reinstate:

"Shorter = less precise movements…" <--- This person believes the shorter sticks will make the DS4 less precise than the DS3. I would argue that the added precision of the DS3 is irrelevant due to it's poor ergonomics.

Hope that makes sense.

My bad but you didn't make it clear which controller you were referring to.

I can't wait to hold the DS4 in my hand!

I have, and played all the games I could at PAX. You are going to love this thing to death! It feels so solid with the prefect weight. The toggles are stiff with zero play and move like a mouse in accuracy. No more slipping off the triggers either as you know they are curved now. Your thumbs touch the touch pad with ease off the triggers. Just a prefect device to more into Next Gen.

This is a good reason why you see so many 3rd party Dev's using them. Even when they run PC versions of the games at gaming conventions.
