It's pretty much what we showed you last week


Sony has just officially revealed the DualShock 4 controller, which is pretty close to the photo we published last week. Mark Cerny, PS4 Lead System Architect, showed the controller during today's live stream event and provided additional details on its capability and design.

The analog sticks have been recessed to give a tighter sense of control and the touchscreen exists, but we've also been shown a "light bar" which, in addition to functioning as an identifier for individual players, will be used in conjunction with a camera accessory, effectively integrating PS Move capability into the device.

Other features include a "Share" button which will make it easier to engage in social networking activities and a built-in headphone jack.

It looks solidly built, but not bulky and still a fair bit smaller than the one used by the Xbox 360. I'm still not a huge fan of placing analogs close together at the base, but this looks like a pretty impressive step in the evolution of the DualShock.


Check out ALL the PlayStation 4 coverage from today's event here. Console specs revealed, new controller detailed, and tons of games announced!

Review: Sumo Omni Reloaded

Sumo products always tend to run on the pricey side, but they're perfect for people who have lots of room in their house, as they tend to hold up over time. No really, the bean bags are huge, and some people even have trouble...more

This modular PS4 controller charge station makes perfect sense

Where do you put your controllers when you're done with them? I tried one of those cloth- lined baskets, but I found that unless I laid them in there very carefully I'd accidentally hit buttons, turning all of my consoles on....more
