During Sony’s PlayStation 4 unveiling event last month, the new PlayStation 4 controller was one of the first parts of the system that was shown off and now some new details are coming out from this week’s Game Developer’s Conference.
The controller is called the DualShock 4 and will come with a touchpad, a share button, headphone jack, and a light bar to help distinguish each player. That’s what we know, but The Verge was able to get some new details about the controller’s capacitive touchpad.
It looks like it will be able to recognize two inputs at the same time and will be able to support several gestures such as flick, pinch and twist. Developers will be able to use the touchpad in their upcoming games to be used as on-screen slider buttons, helping the player navigate a game’s user interface or even be used as a cursor. As more details trickle out about this new console, we will bring them to you.
