Sony DualShock wireless controller

The Sony PS4 comes with a brand new DualShock 4 wireless controller. This controller has joysticks that are more accurate, and integrated movement sensors. The touchpad is also new, as well as the colored light bar. You can operate games in another way via the touchpad on the front of the controller. The LED light bar on top of the controller has the same colors as the characters in the game, so that you can keep track of each other better. The lights also tell you if the character is wounded. The controller also has a special ‘Share key’ in order to share your game performance with others or to upload images and videos to social media websites such as Facebook. Furthermore, DualShock 4 is equipped with an integrated mono loudspeaker for extra sound effects and a headset connection, so that you can chat online with your game friends. The new design is even easier to handle and thanks to stronger vibrating motors, your game experience is even more intense.
