PlayStation 4 Dropping DualShock Controller Design in Favor of Biometric Sensors and Touch Screen
Of course, Sony has dabbled in motion gaming with Move, but according to a new report on the matter, the company will ditch the DualShock design scheme once the PS4 rolls around. After 16 years, the PS controller that we're familiar with could be no more. Reportedly, variations of the controller include "biometric sensors on the grips and an LCD touch screen," which sure sounds a lot like the GamePad that ships with the Wii U. The PlayStation 4, codenamed Orbis for now, may be revealed in earnest this year, and no doubt the cover will be pulled off of the controller at that point as well.
So, what's your gut reaction? Will it be tough to let go of a design that gamers have used for so long? Or is change just natural as gaming evolves?
