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.
