Sony’s New PS4 Controller, DualShock 4Edit

Sony finally revealed the PlayStation 4 console, and with it a new generation of PlayStation controllers.The PS4 DualShock 4 controller features two sticks, four triggers, a directional pad, plus triangle, cross, circle, and square buttons, PlayStation 4′s touchpad-equipped, AR-enabled controller, the DualShock 4, just like a classic PlayStation controller.

But it also has a touchpad across its face, and a PlayStation Move-like "light bar" across the top. The start and select buttons have been moved to the sides to make room for the touchpad, and the DualShock 4 also features a "share" button next to the triggers and a 3.5mm headphone jack.The PS4's DualShock 4 controller is both a huge departure from that formula and more of the same.

It's got a touchpad, motion control and a "light bar" for identification.There's also a "share" button, and the light bar, as well as being used to identify players with colour coding, is also the means via which a new PlayStation camera can track the pad for advanced motion controls.

The PlayStation controller hasn't changed much over the years, from the original PS1 DualShock to the PS3's Sixaxis and DualShock 3 controllers, only with—as you'd expect—a little more polish. It's also great to see Sony deviate from the standard DualShock pad, smoothing things out and making the whole thing look a little fresher.
