I just want one a little more bulkier than the DS3 is. My main issue is that with the PS3 controller it always felt like it was "resting" in my hand while with the 360 controller I was actually 'holding' onto something.
And people asking for the sticks reversed ... I'm fairly certain it's just a preference, it's not "OH SHIT! I can't play gamez now!". I just like the 360 layout more, I still have owned PS1, PS2, PS3, and will own a PS4 regardless.
I really like the look of the new controller though, it seems like something I can 'grip' more-so than something I need to have 'rest' in my hands.
I just don't see how I can use the touch pad with out putting the controller on my lap. If games use it I might be out next generation. They should ofover hauled the controller if they wanted to add a touch pad. This would of been a good time to fix the ergonomics of it. Looks like the most uncomfortable controller ever if you need to use the track pad in any game.
So let's see, we have the likely unveiling on the 20th, does anyone think this was really an accidental 'leak'? It was a controlled leak to get the forums and media all frothy.
This is essentially the teaser trailer before the full blow preview.
It is great. I'm not trying to be negative on it at all cause I can definitely see myself using it. But at the same time it pretty much confirms that the PS4 will be coming with the dual cameras as a pack in as they wouldn't just provide the motion controller without the cameras. It also pretty much confirms that the PS4 will have just as many "gimmicks' as the other consoles will have. Sony won't let developers just ignore all this new tech they've put in the controller either because unlike the Move this is not an add on, this will be in every PS4 sold. And to be clear, i'm not trying to be negative as i think all this new stuff is great for both the new Xbox and PS4 but the reality is that both of them are going to a lot more similar then people think.
fair points but the differentiating factor Sony has imo is a higher amount of strong first party studios. so it will come down to games (which is great) rather than gimmicks, social media integration, or other entertainment media integration.
i can also see a possible partnership with android or apple to have apps available on psn. with the touchpad all those apps will now be playable as if it were on a touch device.
