Here is how Sony describes this official “Limited Edition” Destiny 2 controller, which is being released in Europe in September:
Reader Devin Smith, no stranger to amazing custom controller designs, returns with this God of War piece that has everything you’d expect, down to the paint and leather.
When Sony rolled out the new PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro, they also quietly tweaked the DualShock 4 controller, and here’s another chance to get it for $40.
This “Green Camouflage” PS4 controller will be out in Europe in January.
Sony is launching Gold and Silver DualShock 4s in Japan. Each is priced at 6,480 yen (US$62) and will be out December 15. No word on an international release.
The DualShock 4 makes for a lovely PC gaming controller, but it doesn’t usually get the support it deserves, especially the touch pad and gyroscopic features. An update coming to Steam’s controller API will have PS4 controller configurability baked right in.
If you were lucky enough to acquire one of the 12,300 limited edition 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4 consoles, then has Sony got the accessories for you! Otherwise, here’s some gray stuff.
The PS4 controller is a pretty darn good video game controller, but there's always room for improvement.
Ever since I started playing games on my PS4, one thing about the console's controller has always stood out to me. It makes a lot of noise. Audio feedback is nothing new or unique to the DualShock 4, but it's particularly...noticeable on the thing. Like the controller is nudging you and shouting, "Hey! I'm over here!"
I really like Sony's DualShock 4 controller. I use it a lot, both for playing games on PS4 and also, lately, for PC games. But there is one aspect I'm not wild about: Those slippery thumbsticks.
If you're using a controller to play a PC game—I know, I know, shhh, it's okay—chances are the on-screen prompts you see will match up with an Xbox controller. But you don't have to use Microsoft's controller with your PC; you've actually got a lot of options, including the PS4's DualShock 4.
Hotline Miami is coming to the PS4 on August 19th, Sony just announced. If playing this excellent hyperviolent indie game on the new console isn't enough good news, Sony also promised will feel even more violent than ever before thanks to some newfangled DualShock 4 features:
Are you one of the people that's been annoyed by the fact that the DualShock 4's light bar never turns off? Well, Sony has finally clued us in to why the PlayStation 4 developers decided not to allow gamers to conserve battery life and their own sanity by sticking an "off" switch on the thing. And no, it's not because…
Dim the lights on that DualShock 4, baby, and let's set the mood. According to Sony exec Shuhei Yoshida, you won't be able to turn off the lightbar on the PS4's controller completely after a firmware update in the near future but you will be able to lower the brightness of the LED.
Sony's got a fancy new store page that lets you scroll down and, as your mouse wheel rolls, some cool animations play. Like this one, of an exploding DualShock 4.
At least at launch, Sony is playing it safe with its DualShock 4 designs. You can get them in black, black or black. But if you want to get something a little more adventurous, there are still options.
Designer Cory Schmitz is one of the early adopters of a DualShock 4 controller, and found that it can do...this. Weird trick, though surely getting the balance that right means they did it on purpose. Maybe to make things easier for the guys taking the official product images?
There are PS4 controllers popping up in the wild ahead of the console's release. Some people in the industry have one already. Here's one, taking advantage of the fact the pads will run - with a minimum of fuss on more than just a PS4.
The DualShock 4 marks the first time in over a decade that substantial changes have been made to the design of a PlayStation controller. But what we ended up getting is nowhere near as drastic a change as we could have got.
