    Game Informer has first impressions of prototype DualShock4

    Dualshock 4 prototype hands-on (some new in-depth info, some we already knew):


    - Some components are still being refined (like the d-pad and overall weight)

    - Deadzone on the analog sticks has been greatly reduced.

    - Both sticks feature stiffer resistance.

    - Thumbs bumping into each other is no longer an issue, the analog sticks are spaced farther apart.

    - Analog sticks have a ridged concave top that prevent your thumbs from slipping off.

    - Stuck with symmetrical design because the assymetrical design would cause more dificulties to interact with the touchpad without unintentionally bumping into the left stick.

    - Touchpad is multi-touch, replaces start and select buttons.

    - Ridge at the end of the triggers grasps at your fingers instead of letting them slide off.

    - There is a small speaker above the ps button, below the touchpad.

    - Lightbar works in conjunction with the ps4 eye to track your position and adjusts the split screen accordingly.

    - Controller felt comfortable and sturdy.

    - Got input from Bungie (and a bunch of first party studios) for designing the DS4, Bungie really wanted to make it a controller that worked great for fps games.

    - Writer of the article says the controller is a big reason for gamers to be excited for the console.

    There is a error there.
    The new Options button replaces Start/Select not the touchpad.

    Why are you surprised? Because they were exclusive to Microsoft before? Sony asked many 1st and 3rd parties for feedback.

    Maybe it's not an error, the touch pad is clickable. Maybe it's when you press it down. The option button might be for in-game use (maps etc)

    Maybe it's all up to the developers to pick and choose what does what

    Sounds good so far. Maybe I'll be better at using this one vs the DS3 lol.

    I just imagine telling people on this board in 2005 that Bungie will help design the controller on PS4.. People would be like "What the actual $#@! is you smokin fool?"
