Sony We Donít Want Another Boomerang Controller

Recently rumors have come up saying that Sony is going to throw out the Dualshock controller in favor of a new design. The rumors say that the controller will have some kind of touch sensitive section or touch screen where the start and select button are. Iím not buying it. I donít think Sony wants another Boomerang controller case on their hands. The dualshock controller has been synonymous with the Playstation brand ever since the playstation 1. Itís pretty much impossible to just throw away the controller that playstation gamers love. Iím not saying that I think Sony wonít make improvements to the controller like changing the triggers or con-caving the analog sticks. But my point is that Sony wonít just throw out the dualshock design completely.

What I think Sony will do with the PS4ís controller is take the current dualshock design and make slight improvements to the controller based on consumer feedback. They could put a touch-pad in between the d-pad and face buttons (Iíll put a picture of what I mean), but I feel like that would make the controller way more expensive. Thatís my biggest problem with this whole touch-pad idea. A regular dualshock controller currently costs fifty dollars, I can only imagine how much a controller with a touch-screen or touch-pad costs.
