Alpines after global warming.

And? So no red because of fire in Greece, no wave blue because of tsunami, no green because of vegetarians and no black/white because is racists

And that was my honest first thought after seeing the controller and reading its name.

Never thought about fires or tsunamis.

Niiice!

Looks sleek.. but I’m wondering if the white will turn yellow due to overuse

I’ve been using my Spider-Man controller since it launch and the face/shoulder buttons look same as day one. The analog sticks are seeing some slight yellow (but now that I think about it, I haven’t actually tried cleaning them ). I’m just assuming it’s the same materials as the Spider-Man controller…

Excellent, thanks!

Looks good. It’s a shade of green that works well with the white. And the arrows surrounding the Dpad are yellow, which work great on the green.

Starting to get anxious thinking about the default next-gen controller, although I assume it’ll be largely the same as this one, hopefully without the entirely useless touchpad that has (thankfully) rarely been implemented. After loving the original design for 3 generations, I hated this one, but learned to live with it. Now my biggest gripes that are left are the big handles and the triggers (regular shoulder buttons are quicker to respond than triggers, and the R1/L1 positions don’t feel natural now, so you can’t really prioritize those over the triggers; as for the smaller handles, to me they just give a steadier control over the entire controller)

I love the Dualshock 3 design most, for me it’s perfect so I’m still hoping to see a working variant of the classic Dualshock design next-gen, that would be far more interesting than colors :...

I dunno, I’ve liked all the PS controllers, but the DS4 is definitely my favourite of the bunch.

@Alex Yeah, that goes for most people I hear from, so I’m aware I’m sadly outnumbered in that regard :) Same goes for my brother. And I notice most of them come from Xbox or elsewhere and not from Playstation before PS4, however relevant…

Different shapes and sizes… I’m not tall (5’10) and DS3 is perfect for me. My brother is about a head taller and has bigger hands so he thinks it’s too small and always liked the Xbox (and consequently DS4) controllers better (which I hated in almost every aspect – and the DS4 has a lot of elements in common with it, which is part of the reason why I don’t like it as much)

The DS4 is pretty much a redo of the original PS analog stick controller (the Dual analog) with it’s longer grips and similar sticks. The later PS1 dualshock shortened the grips and domed the sticks, which is the pattern they’ve been following until now.

I do prefer the DS3’s sticks (which is why I used a DS3 instead of a DS4 on a certain PC game for tournaments) as the larger size means more control. But really the rest is better (ignoring the switch to digital controls again). So really, all i’d want from a DS5 would be a DS4 with DS3 sticks.

Though, as a “taller person” the xbone controllers are absolutely horrible for me, due to the lack of any kind of grip, silly layout (inability to use the dpad and stick at the same time is silly) and no proper place to put your fingers. They give me handaches after a while. Terrible, terrible things, like an old TV remote turned into a controller complete with rubbery feeling buttons.

You should donate 90% of the sales to support Square Enix’ “Left Alive” remake.

Looks really really elegant

I like it!

BOKE!

I actually dig this colour. Can’t wait to get one
