Wireless Controller for PlayStation®4 (DUALSHOCK®4)
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 color LEDs that illuminate
in various colors. The light bar illuminates to match the color of characters in a game to offer
a simpler, more friendly 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.
