Coming very soon, ?stateside, ?is the new two-tone colored Wave Blue Dual Shock Controller. Formerly planned for December 2013, PlayStation will finally release it on this year?s fall. The colored gamepad had been already available in Europe and Japan. The controller is possibly the best controller built by Playstation and at the same time the most stylish.
The DualShock controller 4 displays the same layout and buttons with the previous DualShock controllers. It offers fresh new features and buttons, and the most evident modification is the inclusion of the wide touchpad, the primary reason why the Select and Start buttons cannot be seen in the controller,?since this is where the traditional keys were found. The Start and Select Buttons are now replaced with an Option button.
There is also ?a built-in speaker in the controller so you may listen through your controller, than through ?a normal speaker.
Above the device is a light bar that can detect movement, track players and relay immediate information to you through light.
Ridges in the analog sticks can be found to keep your thumbs in place, and ?improved L2 and R2 buttons, ?designed to avoid unintentional presses.
There is also an additional pad for better grips providing more accuracy in games.
