With the built-in support of DualShock, dual analog sticks, pressure sensitive face buttons and arrow pad, four triggers, a touch bar in the center and built-in Move technology, the controller is now alive.
Picture walking a tight rope while being shot at in the latest shooter game and bringing your enemies to their death while surviving yourself. Drop the controller? You’re dead. This type of virtual reality gameplay that has been seen in the past with various add-on projects will all be built-in to each DualShock 4 controller.
If the capabilities being displayed with Media Molecule’s creative and untitled New IP are any indication, there will still be functions that a Move controller (or one in each hand) can do exclusively.
There are also two new additions to the controller seen as buttons on either side of the touch bar. One is the power, or “suspend” button for the PlayStation 4. You can instantly power down, or “suspend” your PlayStation 4 to hibernation with the exact moment you were gaming stored away in its memory. When you bring the PlayStation 4 back to life you will be right where you left off.
The controller also features a share button with built-in UStream scheduling, streaming, Facebook support, as well as native support for capturing screenshots and gameplay footage with the PlayStation 4’s own user interface.
Be on the lookout as the graphics, gameplay, and controllers change with the next generation hardware PlayStation 4 from Sony scheduled for release Winter 2013. Check out more information here.
