Ergonomically pleasing, aesthetically boring. It's how it feels in my hands that counts though.

I also have seen people on the front page talking about controller costs due to a touch screen, it is not a screen, simply a pad. A clickable one as well at that.

I will try to find a youtube video of the share button being demoed.

Yeah, certainly looks boring, but that is the least of my concerns.

Where exactly is that share button?

Cool. Thanks.

So the start/select buttons have been abandoned in favour of the options/share button?

Those higher res images actually make it look pretty comfy to hold.


Random question:do we know if current PS3 controllers will be compatible with a PS4. I imagine they would be?

Obviously fan made, but possibly a fairly good comparison

Find it odd they flipped the lettering on the triggers.

odd but makes sense, since if you're gonna look at the triggers you're gonna tilt the controller towards you as you're holding it

How are you suppose to use the touchpad? It seems awkward to try to get your thumbs to it. I'd like to hold it.

That's the vid from Killzone that was "shared" right after it was shown (supposedly).

Hopefully it won't hurt to hold it anymore

Not sure about this one, I'll probably love it, but in my case, the DS3 was fine. I also understand that there are users that have difficulty using it because it is a large controller and isn't assymmetrical, (by this I mean like the xbox controller that many consider superior) also unsure about the placement of the share button, could be panic for nothing...

Question, have they done away with 'start' and 'select'?

Agreed. Actually looks sexy and more designed around the hands than the PS3 controller. I've long considered the 360 controller to be superior, but I'll have to see how this holds up hands on with the controller.

The Current PS3 controller is fine,
and as I said on the main page, I hate it when companies feel compelled to make change for the sake of change.


And this feels exactly like that, it wont have any practical use but sure as hell will raise the price and maybe make it more awkward to use...

I cant see how your mean to use this along with the analog sticks with your thumb constantly hitting them..
