Lovin this new controller. I do hope that more color variations are just around the corner. Helps to keep kids controllers separate from my own controller

Amazing New Controller
Posted by: monkeyman007 from: Grand Rapids, Michigan on
The Dualshock 4 is amazing. Fixes any problems i had with the Dualshock 3, like and improved d-pad and triggers. Plus, it adds a cool touchpad and lightbar! I think it will be the best controller yet, so 5 Stars to Playstation for a big improvement!

I had a chance to get some hands on time with the PS4 controller, and I have been using a 360 controller for years, and had some time with the Xbox One controller. I have to say with out being biased that the PS4 Dualshock 4 is defiantly the better product. It felt a lot nicer and worthy of next gen while the Xbox One felt lacking. I would defiantly pick one up. I have both PS4 and Xbox One paid off and preordered, but still will have to give it to the PS4 Controller hands down.

Been waiting months to get my hands on this controller! I've had it for about two weeks now and it feels great. It is larger, but not as large as I was expecting. Those pictures make it look very large! Having said that, it does feel perfect in my hands. The grips are just long enough for my pinky fingers to fit on them. The analog sticks are a bit further apart now and the d-pad and face buttons are nice and familiar, no complaints there. I've been using it on Uncharted 3, mainly. It feels really nice and the sticks have more resistance to them, they feel more precise. I can't say how much I am loving the L2/R2 triggers! They curve the right way now!! So long overdue! No more having to buy Realtriggers. The underside of the controller appeared to be rubberized in all the photos, but it in fact is not. It is the same material as the rest of the controller, but with a slightly rougher surface. Slightly disappointing, but it still feels great. The touchpad is often times compared to that of the Vita, but they have different textures with the DS4 being more tactile and the Vita's rear touchpad being completely glossy. Included in the box is...well, nothing but the controller. The charging port is not the same as the DualShock 3. You will need a micro USB cable to charge and sync, but if you have a smartphone that cable will do. I'm currently using a six foot cable and its just long enough, hopefully the one we get with the console is at least that long. There is one in the PS4 box, but not with the single DualShock 4. Overall, I'm really loving this controller. I can't wait to try out the touchpad with my PS4 and to be able to hear what the speaker is going to be like.

The new controller is fantastic.. The touch interface seems somewhat gimmicky, but only time will tell if it sees some intuitive integration into future titles. The LED Lightbar is too bright at times, but it's not even noticeable 90% of the time. I love the shape, the weight, the improved shock/vibration feature, retained the (lightly used) Sixaxis feature, the redesigned L2/R2 triggers, and the redesigned analog sticks. The DS4 also now uses a Micro-USB cable to charge rather than the DS3's larger Mini-B USB. The reason I like that change is because so many devices out there also use Micro-USB cables. Including some I already own. One of my favorite parts of owning a PS4 is this controller. It's such a massive upgrade from the Dualshock 3, I cringe at the thought of using a DS3 ever again. Luckily the Dualshock 4 is compatible with the PS3 via the Micro USB cable. Unfortunately it's not compatible with the PS3 via bluetooth, but that might be possible in the future.

Most important is that THE BLUE CONTROLLER IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. Although the Best Buy website (and other major retailers) lists "pre-order" and nothing else in-stock, rest assured they are around. I bought mine yesterday in store along with Diablo 3.
The controller performs as expected and is identical to the black ones that have been readily available and to the one packed with the PS4. Same trigger feel, headphone jack, touchpad and battery life.

This by far is the best controller playstaion has ever made. Comfortable feel on the buttons the grip on the back does not slide off your hands. Best controller for gaming.

Sony made leaps and bounds with their controller. Fits your hand better, grip feels locked in. R2 & L2 trigger buttons greatly improved...fingers no longer slip of like the ds3. Analog Buttons much more responsive. Greatness
