Plus the official specs

Following the PS4 press conference earlier today, Sony has sent out a press release with specifics on the DualShock 4 controller and the PlayStation 4 Eye camera.

The light bar on the back of the new gamepad can change patterns, as we heard, though now there's an example application of this feature: it can serve as an indicator for low player health. The traditional "select" and "start" buttons have been consolidated into an "options" button, in addition to the DualShock 4 including a share button for broadcasting gameplay to friends in real-time via Ustream or posting video footage to Facebook.

What's more, the controller can be charged while the console is on standby. Sony is also touting an improved "feel" for the left and right sticks as well as the trigger buttons. Thank goodness. The PR also mentions that a mono headset will be bundled with PlayStation 4.

As for the Kinect-looking PlayStation 4 Eye, the device uses two high-sensitive cameras with wide-angle lenses that have 85-degree diagonal angle views. Four microphones are packed inside, and users will be able to log in with face recognition using the Eye. Of course, the PlayStation Move isn't going anywhere, and with this new device, Move controllers will be tracked more accurately and feel more precise. At least, that's what Sony says.
