[ CVG ] VIDEO: AN IN-DEPTH LOOK AT THE PS4 DUALSHOCK 4

CVG has been getting all touchy-feely with the PS4's new DualShock 4 controller since Sony turned up to E3 in June with a load of playable games.


At a glance it would appear that Sony has made very few changes to the DualShock 4, yet almost every facet of the new controller has been tweaked subtly for the better, and the result is a markedly improved, sturdier-feeling device.

I hope this gets good Linux and Windows support. PS3 controller on PC is my favorite controller for emulators and such.

Looks a lot better, I'm with the reviewer guy, I thought the ds3 was horrible, felt flimsy, the triggers were horrible, and the sticks were pretty weak. Though I still wish they would follow suit with the xbox and just swap the dpad and left analog, but w/e.
Well It Works...

I'm surprised Sony took this long to make a significant change to the shape and feel of the controller for the Playstation. I've always preferred the original Xbox and the Xbox 360 controllers since both feel like they're made for normal sized hands.

They are made for normal sized hands...in Japan.

And yet there's no mention of what audio the 3.5mm jack actual outputs (or was this covered earlier and I just can't find it?). It'd be great if it would output the actual game audio, the audio that normally comes out of your speakers.
