PS4 Dual Shock 4 Detailed – Lights, Position Tracking, Touchpad, Sound and Share!
Sony has uploaded a new video on YouTube detailing the several features of the new Dual Shock 4, destined to be the controller of PS4.
Firstly, they talked about the Light in front of the new Dual Shock. With it the PS4 can track the position of the person handling the controller. For example, if you switch controllers with your friend, PS4 will identify the new position of the controller and automatically adjust the ordering of the split-screen.
Small stuff like this is what makes the gaming experience more smooth and fun. Besides that, the color of the light bar will also help you recognize who is player 1, 2 and so on. Furthermore, there is a touchpad on the controller which will make the touch interaction easier and add another layer of gameplay, making the gaming experience more immersive.
Something else that would help make the games more immersive is the speaker on the controllers. Obviously, most of your audio will be coming out of your television. However, the more personal and intimate sounds, like a character breathing heavily in the game, will come out of this speaker on the controller.
Lastly, there will also be a ‘Share’ button on the controller. Using this button you will be able to share screenshots or videos instantly. No more need to make a video, edit it and then upload it. The PS4 will take care of all that and that too in seconds.
