To everyone thinking it will be much larger than the DS3 - I line up the Triangle and X buttons:



Not that much bigger. Basically as wide as the bottom legs of the DS3 - maybe 3/4" wider in total.

Blegh at the stick layout.

I'm glad they've revised the D-pad, though. Doing circle motions on the previous style was like rubbing your thumb on a cheese grater. Never understood the praise for it beyond being better than the 360 one.

Is it just me or does it look like they widened the distance between the sticks a little? That was one thing I really hoped they would do as I find the current DS sticks just a bit too close together.

There's a lot of 2D movement options on this controller.

Analog stick.
Touchpad.
Camera pointer.

Going to be interesting to see how devs choose to use them, and for what.

a little bit a width can do a lot in regards to comfort.

the wii u pro controller has a similar shape to the 360's but it's just a tad wider and i notice it because it's more comfortable.

sometimes, all it takes is a 1/4" here and a 1/4" there to add a LOT more ergonomics to a design

Sony have a tendency to chuck the kitchen sink in their products and see what sticks then refine later and remove those things - e.g lolaxis.

That said this is a prototype so there's a v.v.likely chance they're just playing around with things to see what devs like and don't like.

No, as I learned with my Wii U, I hate looking down at a second screen. Immersion killed. I'm not sold on the touchpad, but I also haven't seen it in use. I blindly assumed the backtouch pad on the Vita would be cool, it wasn't. I look forward to seeing how this one is used.

Sony stays refusing to get with the program as far as the sticks go. All in all, though, that looks much more comfortable than the DS3. As long as the buttons are as responsive as the DS3, and the sticks are a bit tighter, I'm fully on board with this revision.

Did the best I could - had to rotate the prototype a tad to fit - still a bit "off" but it's a start. I'm no PS wizard :(

Basic gyroscope type functionality I would imagine. More Six-axis gimmicks except it might be less of a pain to get to work this time.

Something like this.

From the angle in the protoype they look quite flat, but if they turn out like that image I'll be happy.

I like the real, formerly-Nintendo-patented D-pad, and that the should buttons are a little farther back. The face not being raised out is probably a good idea too.

4 on the front. 2 in the back would be ideal.


I hope it has some on the back for add ons like the camera that you will leave plugged in.

Some people like the stick placement. It was the sensitivity that was the real issue.
