Sony shows off PlayStation 4 controller

SAN FRANCISCO—Sony offered a glimpse of a prototype of the controller for its forthcoming PlayStation 4 gaming console at the Game Developer Conference here last week.

Chis Norden, a senior staff engineer at Sony, showed off the controller and talked about its development in a scheduled presentation at GDC. Norden did not provide many more technical details than had previously been revealed when Sony announced the PS4 last month. Nor did he show a prototype of the console itself.

Of course, the big news from the PS4 launch last month was that Sony is ditching the infamous CELL processor and using an X86 CPU designed by Advanced Micro Devices Inc.

The design of the wireless controller for PlayStation 4 is similar to that used in its predecessor, the PlayStation 3. From a hardware perspective, the biggest change is the inclusion of a much more sensitive six-axis sensor gyroscope, said Aram Jabbari, a spokesman for Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEA).

The more sensitive sensor will give game developers "carte blanche to do motion," Jabbari said.

The PS4 controller features a new "share" button to allow gamers to more easily share highlights of their triumphs via Facebook.

While Jabbari said the prototype PS4 controller is subject to possible changes before it hits store shelves, the design is largely locked down. Jabbari said SCEA is now "showing the possibilities of what could be done" with extra motion sensitivity.

Another major change from the PS3 controller is that the PS4 prototype has a touch pad located on the front, offering gamers new ways to play and interact with games. Interactive gaming is a concept that Sony is pushing heavily with the new console launch.

LEDs, built-in speaker

The PS4 controller also features a light bar on the top with three color LEDs that illuminate in various colors. The light bar illuminates to match the color of characters in a game to offer a simpler, more friendly way to identify players, even when playing side by side. The light bar also changes patterns during gameplay to provide useful information to gamers, such as when a character is critically low on health or has taken major damage.

The PS4 controller also features a built-in speaker and stereo headset jack. Sony wants to make it easier for gamers to be able to chat with friends playing online, while hearing sound effects from the controller in hand.

While previous PlayStation controllers featured both a "start" and "select" button, the new design integrates both into an "options" button and adds a "share" button. Again, the goal is to make it easier for gamers to interact with fellow gamers. Users can share their triumphs and accomplishments by uploading video gameplay to Facebook with the "share button." Unlike streaming content via PC, users no longer have to convert data formats of their recorded gameplay and can share it with ease, according to SCEA.

The new design also enables gamers to charge the controller while the PS4 is on standby or through a dedicated charging station.

Another difference is that, unlike the PS3 controller, the touch pads on the PS4 controller are not pressure sensitive. Jabbari said SCEA found that very few games ever made use of the pressure sensitive functionality.
