We’ve been hearing a lot of news and rumors lately about Sony’s PlayStation 4 and we might hear more come May at E3. This latest rumor is about the PlayStation 4′s controller.
According to CVG sources, Sony will get rid of the DualShock controller, despite how beloved it is to gamers. The PlayStation 4′s controller will be a lot like the Wii U’s, with biometric sensors on the grips of the controller and an LCD touchscreen. A separate source says that PlayStation engineers are “trying to emulate the same user interface philosophies as the PS Vita.”
That makes sense I guess. Having a DualShock controller be compatible with the PlayStation 4 is still pretty important even if they do go with a touchscreen controller. We will have to wait and see how it all plays out in any event.
