I'm happy to wait out this console launch for the lack of interesting launch titles. But man do I still want something shiny to drool over at Christmas.
I know the PS4 controller will work with the PS3, but I'm not getting one till I get a PS4. Half the the fun of a new console is the new controller
I think it's quite beautiful. The touchpad give it a unique look, and the handle looks smooth and much more comfortable than the xbox controller. But it's just my opinion.
I like the PS4, but this controller is uglier than in the other pictures and videos, I mean, good god.
last few days, sony says ps4 won't play mp3, cd's, and streaming DLNA features !!
So what is the latest news,, is there any changes ,,are they bringing back these features - is nice to have since xbox says the one can - would they make a patch - ready on launch day
but it already was great with the new D pad n the grey limited controller!! nver had any trouble since this appeared http://www.justpushstart.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/New-Xbox-360-controller-340x300.jpg
I tried it yesterday ans yes, very comfortable. I hope ot works well with all PS3 games. Ill aell two of my DS3s and just get a second one.
The new Xbox controller is awesome, they fixed the d pad which was my only complaint. The PS controllers have always sucked
How it looks entails how it feels too, I'm also pretty sure the design shape was massively considered you just made yourself sound like a complete fanboy by saying the shape doesn't matter. An if you're saying it's super comfy, then you've obviously used one. The shape always matters, design always matters, quality always matters. You don't get a choice of less than best with anything, even the new consoles they're decent for a while.
I'm getting the x1 bit I gotta say Sony have stepped up on the control front. Its big it fits in the hand nicely. The 360 control was a mile ahead of the ps3 but this gen I'm not so sure.
I cant wait for the DS4. Im excited about the triggers man. I could not deal with DS3 for Shooters, so this will be my excitement moment. Killzone will be my first shooter on next gen. Also getting AC4
This controller is a whole lot better than the Ds3. The Xbox controller looks the same but with new triggers
DS4 is a perfect controller. They fixed if not improved the Triggers, D Pad right where it belongs for figtthing games. Not anymore convex Thumbsticks, and is bigger controller compared to DS3, but not so big which fits perfectly for small and big hands.
It is super comfortable, also a big improvement from the DS3's who cares what it looks like as long as it functions.
Going to be painfully slow two weeks between november 15th-29th to watch NA peoples already playing next-gen, even the Xbots, yeah even the Xbone is already released in NA when PS4 arrives in Europe. Maybe I'll go full offline for two weeks.
since we're on the topic of "next gen", is there any chance you guys can review (at 60 fps) the nvidia gtx 780 ti to when it drops this month? also what about AMD mantle and how that plays into the next gen cross platform games.
Question, will you guys have any reviews ready when PS4 and Xbox One games ready when they are release? 2, will you do reviews on the next-gen consoles them self? Thanks for your time GS.
@Munstable Hehe I think the super wide angle shots of it make it look uglier than it is. It's actually pleasing in real life I think.
@Munstable ps1 slim console white controllers looked to me prettiest...
@Munstable I really don't care what the controllers look like, I am not buying the new systems for there looks. Functionality is all that matters, they could make the worlds ugliest controller but if it played better then current controllers whatever.
@snaketus Careful, though. You might get hooked on being offline. Kinda like giving up salt.
