Sony PS4 DualShock 4 Controller and Eye Camera Can See, Hear and Move with You
On the inside, the DualShock 4 features a new highly sensitive six-axis sensor for precise control. Externally, the DualShock 4 looks similar to previous models, though it now comes with a touchpad located on the front of the controller, opening up new gameplay avenues for software developers.
On the opposite side is a Share button. This will allow gamers to broadcast their gameplay in real-time to friends through Internet streaming services such as Ustream. You'll also be able to share gaming moments and accomplishments by uploading video gameplay footage to Facebook, all with the touch of the button -- no fussing with video formats or conversions.
Below the touchpad in the center is a built-in speaker, which will pipe high-fidelity sound effects from games (don't worry, your TV and/or home theater speakers will still play in-game sound effects, too).
The DualShock 4 features a light bar on top with three color LEDs. It illuminates to match the color of characters in a game to offer an easier way to identify players, even when playing side by side, Sony says. It will also change patterns to reflect gameplay scenarios, such as being critically low on health or taking a major blow from an enemy.
There are four microphones incorporated into the PS4 Eye, allowing the device to detect accurate sound and source origination. Gamers will be able to use the Eye to log into their PS4 using face recognition, too.
