Why do people keep misuing the term "4-Dimensional"?

This looks cool, don't get me wrong, but the forth dimension is TIME. Not...whatever this shows. The closest we'll get to "four dimensional gaming" is environments that change over time naturally, due to conditions in the game (as in the PS3 demo), or perhaps games like Harvest Moon where the game continues whether or not you're playing.

Yes is should be 3D in the title, but the video is called 4D.

Interesting Concept...should be sponsored by Skittles though.

spunnups5273d ago

Very cool stuff. Can you imagine the PSP2 or Future DS model implementing this sort of technology? I'm excited for the future of gaming.

Sony Appears to be Working on a New Version of the DualSense

Sony seems to be working on a new version of the DualSense that would improve on the PS5 controller with some extremely helpful features.

Pretty awesome. Hopefully they add a bigger battery to boot.

“The button hints would also be spelled out on the controller's touchpad, which would actually double as a display. This is not the first patent indicating that the DualSense 2 might feature a touchscreen instead of a touchpad, as another such IP filing emerged online back in September. As for the concept at hand, the controller that it describes wouldn't just be capable of lighting up its buttons, including its shoulder triggers, but also both of its analog sticks.“

Sony needs to make a controller that can work on ps1,ps2,ps3,ps4 and ps5.

Mr_cheese1d 14h ago

Surely you understand that that isn't feasible or warranted

Profchaos1d 14h ago (Edited 1d 14h ago )

Sony won't but there's manufacturers out there that do make that. Brooks is the one I have and can use my DS3,4 and duelsense on my PS1 and PS2 almong with Xbox controller and switch pro etc.

Note it feels better than a original controller however you still have the same controller functionality so most shooters play better with R2 as shoot but during the PS2 R1 was the standard as we didn't have triggers yet so the games feel sometimes unnatural to play

They have adapter's for most systems even modern ones want to use an Xbox controller on switch. For some reason they probably have something for that.

SonyStyled1d 10h ago (Edited 1d 10h ago )

You can use a DualShock 4 or Dualsense on a PS3. You can use a PS1 and 2 controller on a PS3 with an adapter.

What you are asking for is a wired Dualsense, or a wireless receiver for a Dualsense to play on PS1 and PS2. Everything else is already compatible out of the box.

MrNinosan1d 1h ago

Why would they do or need that? 🤔

_SilverHawk_22h ago

some people take their fanboy allegiance to a degree that logical ideas are hated. i play on all consoles dating back decades ago which is evident by my profile wallpaper and not just the one or two consoles some people can only afford. i like playing older games or retro games on original hardware but id prefer to have more ergonomic and durable controllers with modern internals that can play different generations of gaming consoles. i prefer not to fiddle with adapters to use uncomfortable controllers when playing retro games and would like it if sony had one controller akin to the dualsense that can play all generations of sony gaming consoles. there are a lot of uncomfortable controllers from the past made by nintendo so it would be nice if nintendo had something like the wavebird that can play all nes consoles or microsoft with a duke/360 controller to play all xbox systems. it probably will never happen because i can see a lot of people crying about the controllers not being cheap because im quite sure those controllers would definitely be more expensive

Cool

Hopefully any upgrades and the like are kept for the PS6. If we start wasting things on mid gen consoles then the next gen isn’t as “wow” worthy compared to holding out and seeing a massive difference from something released 8 years ago or something.

purple1012d ago

Totally agree
Good point.

Would make it much better to have these things for nex-gen, with games that tie in on release

Sony have many weird patients, they are sony after all.

I remember one, with sweat sensor and the obvious heart rate monitor of course.

-Foxtrot2d ago

Yeah it’s just I feel like if we didn’t have the PS4 and the like we’d have been a little bit more blown away with what the PS5 / Xbox Series X could have done at launch

VenomUK1d 16h ago

The touchscreen may or may not be useless.
If it is just repeating info on screen it may end up being ignored like the colours on the DualShock 4.
However if it can provide actual useful information, guidance for play that complements what is on screen, eg showing how to perform a move, or accessing inventory, without having to go to the menu, then it might work.

However, Sony must get it running with multiple games so they know if it actually provides a benefit beyond the cool sounding concept.

Tody_ZA1d 18h ago (Edited 1d 18h ago )

I agree with you Fox except about the PS4, as it was one of the best generations for PlayStation so I'm absolutely glad it exists. Perhaps the PS4 Pro could have been skipped, but I was glad to play God of War at 60fps ;)

Stanjara1d 18h ago (Edited 1d 18h ago )

It wasn't 60. It was all over the place... around 45-50. I couldn't do it and played at fidelity 30.

badz1491d 12h ago

I just want them to introduce the back button attachment like they did with the DS4. I love that thing and would definitely buy them for my controllers without having to buy the Edge.

HICK1d 9h ago

Look into the mods you can do. I just did one and it was easy. RISE4 eXtreme Rate is what I did but you can do one with just 2 buttons.

PCgamer9823h ago

Back buttons should have already been the standard for default controllers. I can't believe we're still using the same controller layout from decades ago.

victorMaje1d 8h ago

Agreed. If the revisions sell it may become a yearly thing which I’m not sure how to feel about.
Dualsense blew me away. If there are revisions the wow factor may get lost.

Honestly, I would dig a screen on a controller. I always liked the Dreamcast implementation of the VMUS, which could be simulated by something like this. The buttons lighting up could be cool for some accessibility-specific scenarios. Still, for general usage, I can't think of any potential uses that can't be achieved by ordinary buttons.

That said. If they are going to make a new controller, I would love them to invest in more repairability. Modular sticks, easier access to the battery, etc.

__y2jb1d 12h ago

The vmu was a good idea, very badly implemented and went totally unsupported.

gold_drake1d 11h ago (Edited 1d 11h ago )

no no no, a screen on a controller is a bad idea. really really bad idea.

1. battery life lol
2. the amount of times my controller fell down somewhere because i either didnt see it is or it just slipped.pffmof something is alot.

Vits1d 10h ago

1. Just put a decent battery on the controller. If Flydigi manage to do it with their Apex 3, Sony can with their devices as well.
2. That is a "you issue", stop having lettuce hands. /s

darthv721d 9h ago

They could just enable 2nd screen support for the portal.

Vits1d 9h ago

Honestly, I find it bizarre that is not a thing at the moment.

RonnySins1d 18h ago

Hopefully the battery would be bigger this time.
