DualShock 4 - new images show triggers, headphone port, Share button, and more

  • Posted February 20th, 2013 at 21:33 EDT by Kyle Prahl

Sony's DualShock 4 - the official controller of PlayStation 4 - will bring with it a whole host of new features. The controller will allow you to share game footage and screenshots with your friends, interact in new ways via touchpad, and more.

Furthermore, subtle changes have been made to the controller's shape and buttons. Feast your eyes on the images below, and witness the changes: Start and Select are gone, replaced by 'Share' and 'Options.' The L2 and R2 triggers are now concave, more in-line with Xbox 360 and Wii U trigger shapes. L1 and R1 are much bigger. The analog sticks are concave. A headphone jack is available on the controller's underside. The hand grips are a bit more rounded and appear to be designed with better ergonomics in mind.

Give us your thoughts on the DualShock 4's design in the comments below, and stay glued to PSU.com for more PS4 coverage in the coming days, weeks, months, and years. Check out our PS4 information hub for every news story, feature, and detail we know.
