On February 21, 2013 the PS4 has been announced by Sony in New York city. Sony revealed some tantalizing details about the PlayStation 4 hardware specs, along with some amazing software features that the new console will have. Unfortunately we STILL don't know what the PS4 looks like. However, we do know it's coming out in the US in time for Christmas 2013 and we know about the DualShock 4 controller. Here's everything we know about the PlayStation 4 so far:
The DualShock 4 controller incorporates a new highly sensitive six-axis sensor, as well as a touch pad located on the top of the controller, which offers gamers completely new ways to play and interact with games. The touchpad can be used for touch interactions and countless other processes that have yet to be revealed by the game council manufacturer. The color-changing light bar allows the controller to interact with the PS4's evolution of the PlayStation Eye, presumably for motion and pointing controls. The Select and Start buttons have been replaced by Options and Share, both of which sit near the top instead of closer to the thumb sticks. Options combines Select and Start to allow players to navigate menus.
The most important button on the DualShock 4, however, is Share, a quick method for distributing photos or videos with one press. The company envisions using Share to broadcast game play to friends or even a deeper way to collaborate. "For example, if you're stuck in a difficult level, your friends can offer health options or special weapons that you can use during game play," says Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios.
The LED light bar helps differentiate between multiple players on PS4, much like the red lights do now for PS3. However, they also mesh with a dual camera similar to the Xbox 360's Kinect. The camera can track a controller using the light bar, as well as support voice recognition and any PlayStation Move motion control accessories.
Sony revealed that the DualShock 4 features improved rumble, reduced latency and some other performance improvements, and gamers critical of the older PlayStation controllers' convex control sticks will be happy to note that the DualShock 4 has concave sticks.
The DualShock controller also offers more support for audio and chat. Like the Nintendo Wii remote, the PS4 controller has a built-in speaker. More intriguing is the addition of a headset jack and bundled headset for chatting with friends.
As with any new gaming tech, the controller will only be as good as the games featured on the PS4. The success of PS4 and DualShock hinges on how well developers leverage its features.
