Sony has put together a video that gives us a better idea of what the new DualShock 4 is all about. The controller still maintains that classic Playstation look with a few noticeable changes.
The light bar at the top of the controller is one of the more obvious alterations but there are a few more subtle features like a built-in speaker, which is something that turns out to be a pretty cool feature of the Wii U gamepad. The additional speaker on the controller provides an extra dimension in sound and the benefits of that can only really be appreciated when you actually immersed in gameplay.
I think the controller will be a success, but that’s only one factor in a great gaming console. There’s still a lot to be proven.
