Have you all seen te picture of the PS4 controller prototype on the Internet lately? I have a screen cap I want to post, but I seems that that feature was disabled on TrekBBS.
Just rehost it...



The basic design is still the same, but it's been working since the PS1, so why change it too much...

Built in speaker, like the wii controllers........intresting.

And i headphone socket you say, for comms i take it and not game sound....although can you imagine a controller that allowed you to plug your headphones in and get game and chat through it, like my turtle beach headset....thats would be cool.

Why change it? Because adding a touch screen to a 20 year old controller is just silly.

The way that I play video games, I have a feeling all those additions to the controller will be ultimately pointless. It just looks bulky.

Mind you that is a prototype. Remember the boomerang controller for the PS3?

Re: Is the Playstation 4 About to be announced??

Yeah, that was pretty bad. One of the reasons I stick with Playstation is because of the controller. I can't stand the XBOX controller. Playstation is the one controller that actually feels comfortable in my hands.

I actually prefer the Xbox 360 controller over the PS3 controller.

Though nothing can be as bad as that monstrosity that was the first controller for the original Xbox.

Re: Is the Playstation 4 About to be announced??

I liked the original Xbox controller, they needed to sort out the white and black buttons out but I did like it. The 360 controller is better and I prefer it over Playstation controller.

I like the 360 controller for precision in FPS games and driving games but I like the PS3 controller for 3rd person action games and the like that favor quick actions.

Probably why I prefer it. These are the only games I play.

Re: Is the Playstation 4 About to be announced??

The Dualshock is great, but I hate the location of the analog stick. It should swap places with the D-pad.

I love the Xbox controller with the exception of the awful D-pad. D-pads might not be used quite as much nowadays, but as a retro gamer at heart I just can't get behind a controller that screws over the D-pad.

The Wiimote --- uh, no. Just no.

The best controller ever is the Genesis 6-button controller. That thing was perfect.

Re: Is the Playstation 4 About to be announced??

That PS4 pad looks horrible...

* D Pad looks so dug in if you get my meaning

* Why would I need speakers in it, I have a TV and I presume any headaset will give me the voice comms

* They got rid of trigger style R2/L2 button? they felt nice for shooters.

* What could such a small screen possibly be useful for?

and I need a giant blue light on all the time
