Well, in terms of the way it looks it’s practically identical to the original controller, including its buttons and black aesthethic.

Here’s the new DualShock 4, model number CUH-ZCT2
The one, new defining aesthetic change is the shift of the blue light-bar from the top of the controller on the older model, to just above the touch-pad on the new DS4.
The only other change is that the new PlayStation 4 controller features USB communication. Unlike the original DS4, it means you’ll be able to play games either wirelessly or via a USB cable.
Other features, such as battery, motion-sensing functionality and Bluetooth support remain the same, as well as its wireless connectivity.
