The PlayStation 4’s controller will maintain the same general shape and style as the existing DualShock 3, but will boast a number of improvements according to a report on VG247. The publication states that the peripheral will include a touchpad on the front of the unit. The ‘Start’ and ‘Select’ buttons have apparently been moved as a result.
The site adds that the device’s maligned L2 and R2 triggers have been “remodelled for the better”, but it’s unclear what shape they will adopt. However, it continued that it has no knowledge of a ‘Share’ button, which has been one of the unit’s most consistent rumours over the past few weeks. Previous reports suggested that the added input would allow you to capture and edit gameplay footage on the fly.
All will be revealed during Sony’s widely publicised PlayStation Meeting on 20th February. What changes would you like to see made to the current controller? Let us know in the comments section below.
