The PS4 could put an end to the lever that players know since Sony would bring a new design. Since 1997, the DualShock had not been altered, but the manufacturer has redesigned the entire design.
The PS4 should offer a whole new controller since the site CVG indicates that it may be equipped with an LCD touch screen and biometric sensors. The experience offered by the Sony console would be very different from previous versions. Since 1997, the DualShock suffered no real change. The PS Move has brought a few new, but the concept should be strengthened for the next generation. This accessory provides interaction between the player and the console but Sony wants to go further by using the concept of the PS Vita. Thus, the new controller could be closer to the experience offered by the handheld . With the introduction of biometric sensors, at the grip, the gameplay could be largely modified. This information should be taken with a grain of salt since Sony has refused to comment on the possibility.
The Abandonment of the DualShock?
The PS4 whose code name is Orbis should make its appearance in a few weeks. Players are waiting impatiently the new generation that will match up against the new Xbox. The site states that the PS3 controllers would be compatible with the new system, but they are used as secondary controllers. For the moment, it is impossible to have a picture of this new controller or PS4 since development is a matter well guarded. The price could also pose some problems to the portfolio as a controller with a touch screen and biometric sensors should have a fairly high rate.
For the first time since 1997, the controller of the PlayStation could be completely changed. Sony would have the intention to break with the design of the famous DualShock. At the launch of the PS3, rumors also indicated that the controller would suffer a complete overhaul of the design, the final Sony remained very close to the old controller. It is therefore advisable to take all this information with a grain of salt.
