Utilizing a similar design as the popular Wireless Controller for PlayStation 3(DUALSHOCK 3), DUALSHOCK 4 features new innovations to deliver better gaming experiences. DUALSHOCK 4 incorporates a new highly sensitive six-axis sensor, as well as a touch pad located on the front of the controller, which offers gamers completely new ways to play and interact with games.
DUALSHOCK 4 features a light bar on the top with three colour LEDs that illuminate in various colours. The light bar illuminates to match the colour of characters in a game to offer a simpler, friendlier way to identify players, even when playing side by side. The light bar also changes patterns during gameplay to provide useful information to gamers, such as when a character is critically low on health or has taken major damage.
In addition, DUALSHOCK 4 will come with a built-in speaker and stereo headset jack, enabling PS4 users to enjoy high-fidelity sound effects of games from both the TV and also from the controller. Combined with the Mono Headset that will be bundled with PS4, gamers will also be able to chat with friends playing online, while hearing sound effects from the controller in hand.
While integrating “SELECT” and “START” buttons on DUALSHOCK 3 Wireless controller into a new “OPTIONS button”, DUALSHOCK 4 is newly equipped with a “SHARE button” to further enhance PS4’s social capabilities. The “SHARE button” allows gamers to easily broadcast their gameplay in real-time to friends through internet streaming services such as Ustream. Users can also share their triumphs and accomplishments by uploading video gameplay to Facebook with the “SHARE button”. Unlike streaming content via PC, users no longer have to convert data formats of their recorded gameplay, but can share it with ease. Additionally, gamers can charge DUALSHOCK 4 while PS4 is on standby.
During the creation of DUALSHOCK 4, Sony Computer Entertainment worked with key partners in the development community to improve the feel of the left / right sticks and the trigger buttons, the result is a much tighter sense of control over in-game actions.

You won't regret adding this to your Play Station Four experience. The fun is more than doubled with double the players so this is the tool you need. Stylish, user friendly, and black the power is in your hands. When my kids are fighting over the controllers this is the one they want!
The controller itself is great, comfortable and precise. However the battery life is poor and the rubber on the analog sticks has begun to deteriorate after only 6 months. The light bar is a good concept but has proved to be redundant. You cannot see it while gaming without taking your eyes away from the screen and consciously tilting the controller back to look at it or seeing the reflection on your trigger fingers, or even worse seeing the reflection on your screen. A better option would be to integrate subtle illumination into the front face, the buttons or thumb sticks for more useful feedback. The speaker is a great feature but currently under utilized.
The new Playstation 4 controller is awesome! It feels great in your hands and is so much better than the previous version. The vibrations are so much better and the analog sticks are brilliant, it even has a built in speaker. Overall it just looks so cool and really adds to the PS4 experience.
