Sony may retire Dualshock for the PS4

Quote:
Report: Sony Retiring DualShock With PS4
To be replaced by a touch screen or biometrics.
by Luke Karmali JANUARY 18, 2013

A new report is suggesting that Sony will ditch the DualShock controller for the PS4 and instead create a new one possibly containing a LCD touch screen or even biometrics.

An unnamed source spoke to CVG and claimed that many of the controllers currently being tested by Sony's R&D department mark a rapid departure from the loyal DualShock, which has served PlayStation consoles for 16 years.

These versions apparently include new additions ranging from an integrated LCD touch screen to biometric sensors on the grips. A second source explained that Sony was supposedly trying to emulate the UI philosophies behind the Vita, and this is what inspired the whole touch screen thing.

We've also heard previously about a version that incorporates the PlayStation move into the traditional DualShock design, which it seems could still be a possibility given the claims of multiple prototypes.

Until Sony announces anything, it's best to take all of this with a huge pinch of salt. Having said that, even if the above does turn out to be true, it seems unlikely that the company would write-off the DualShock completely. It's much more likely that they'd still be able to be used as bog-standard controllers in a similar manner to how Wii Remotes still work with Nintendo's Wii U, with suped-up versions featuring some of the additions mentioned also available.

This is the latest rumour in what's been a busy couple of months for leaks linked to the next-gen consoles. Former AMD execs have been in trouble for allegedly sharing highly-sensitive details about them, dev kits have surfaced all over the place and Sony is meant to be taking steps to prevent you playing second hand games on it's next box.

With so many leaks coming thick and fast, surely it won't be long until Sony and Microsoft step out of the shadows to set the record straight once and for all?

I really hope this isn't true. If it's not broken, don't fix it. I Liked Sony's page on Facebook and they showcased some concept art for said controllers. It looked okay.

Not sure how to take this. I wouldn't want it to have the LCD screen since the one on the Wii U annoys me enough already. I was hoping for at least one 8th gen console to have a traditional controller.

To be fair, the Wii U has the Pro Controller, so it's not like you're completely arsed into using the GamePad all the time.

But here we go. Everyone is beginning to emulate each other again, just like with motion controls. I'm fine with new play control but for shit's sake, let's see a litle more innovation than seeing Sony making a PlayStation branded GamePad.

I am rather thrilled that developers are attempting to expand concepts introduced by another in order to better please the audience, but when Sony and Microsoft do it, it makes them look like money hogs.

I'm not really bothered by stuff like 'copying'. Almost everything these days is a clone, including the Wii U's controller.

But it is very annoying how it happens in the game industry. Like how certain franchises are copying others and how other game developers try to cash in on a concept. Using the Wii example, it's like how they also threw their hat into the motion gaming ring. When I feel like motion gaming, I play Wii. When I want a more tradional experience, I play PS3 so there was no reason for them to do the Sony Move thing. If I wanted a Wii U esque console, I'd get a Wii U.

Yeah PS Move admittedly was just a money/business thing, rather than an attempt at enhancing games.

I agree, it kind of annoyed me too some of the time. I like traditional controllers, so I'm hoping one has one too.

It seems like they're trying to do what Nintendo did for the Wii U, and I think that is what makes Microsoft and Sony look like money hogs. Kinect and Move (especially Move) just seemed like they were coming from the Wii.
I understand they have to keep up and innovate themselves though.
