The magma red Dual Shock 4 is coming out in the US this summer, nearly two years after it hit Europe. It will be GameStop exclusive.
hmmmm.. do I need a 3rd controller?? lol
Someday you will when the sticks wear-off.
The stick material was revised ages ago...
Gamesgbkiller damm son that joke was old news. next time troll a better one
got my ps4 in march of 2014 - never had any trouble at all.
I have a launch day controller (used for PS3 gaming) and a blue controller (for PS4) and my sticks don't show any signs of wear.
I swear, those people must've been rubbing their analog sticks like a madman cause I had mine for close to a year and still looks brand new. It's called taking care of your stuff.
No need, you can send them back free of charge to Sony and get a new one back in a week or two. I've send the red one back because the sticks were tearing already. I'm careful with my stuff, I really, really am, heck, so much so people don't even notice I've read books 'cos I read them in a way the back doesn't crack. Anyhoo, it just happens after a while.
My sticks are good, it's that dang STICKER that wears off a month after playing with it. Nasty adhesive left on the controller gets on your fingers...
I don't understand this problem. I have played on the same controller for a year and nothing bad has happened to my sticks. 240 hours in BF4 at least.
my black one is a launch controller and it is perfect fine. And I've logged several hundreds of hours on Destiny with no issues. I don't play all the time though, so it's possible the sticks could wear out, but so far so good.
I don't get it myself. I heard many people complaining about the stick like every week or so. Sorry if you see it as a troll. Have a nice day people. Play safe :)
I'm in the UK so I've had the chance to get this for a while, but I chose the blue dualshock 4 to go with my white console. If I ever decide to get a third it will be a red one :)
Yes, yes you do! I've got four of them, black, blue, red and white! Am hoping they won't release any more, hahaha :) Granted, I got one paired with my PS3 since I just couldn't go back to using the DualShock 3 anymore.
i hope green controller comes by.. nothing wrong with red but green is my style
A lime green colour would be pretty snazzy :D I used to love my lime green Nintendo Colour.
There's an official green on??!! Favorite color
I want a hunter/forest green controller.
If they released green and purple I would get them just to complete the PlayStation colours lol. I already have white, black, and blue too so my controller stock is bordering on excessive.
Finally the times has come to replace my PS4 controller!, all this time been playing with a almost broken R2 trigger :/
How about a new battery!
...or just allowing us to completely disable the light bar.
It's the touchpad that sucks the battery
Actually, the vibration consumes more battery than those 2 things.
Yeah they should have planned out the battery to be closer to the PS3 ones. Those lasted forever, until they got really old like most rechargeable batteries. It's a shame because the lightbar and touchpad have yet to see significant use. Hopefully the OS and games will work up to that.
swap out the battery for a PS3 battery.
About damn time. I've been holding off getting another controller, now i can get one that matches my headset.
definitely getting one. I had a red one with my ps3 - I loved it. I've been hoping red controllers would make it to ps4.
I've had one since launch :-D eBayed from China. Paid like $25 more but whatever.
I have a black one with a red silicon skin.
How can the magma Dualshock 4 be two years old when the PS4 isn't even two years old
the controllers actually released a month or two before the console launched, but they are still definitely short of 2 years regardless.
Love my blue controller but I am tempted to get this.
I just bought a blue one. Love it. But I like red, too.
Finally! Glad I was able to resist the temptation to import one. Didn't want to pay extra.
Lol same here. I never did get a red ps3 controller last gen even though I always wanted one but this time I'm definitely not missing out.
Gamestop exclusive really? I try not to shop there because of what they offer for trade ins and the ensuing mark up on the resell, but man I want me a red ds4.
yeah I wanted one but I'll pass simply because it's a GS exclusive. I'll go ahead and spend the extra $50 to custom another one at ColorWare.
I will be adding this to my collection and replacing the lame ps4 sticks with the Xbox one ones ( more comfortable to me).
