When the PlayStation 4’s controller was first shown we were all intrigued by the bright shiny light that made it look space age. However after actually using one for a while you start to get a little annoyed by the bright light and so a new design fad has been born.

I love the DualShock 4, and I’m fortunate enough to not have the rubber coming off the analogue thumbsticks; a problem many people seem to be experiencing. If there is one pretty big complaint I have about the thing though, is the poor battery life. I get 6 to 8 hours of play from the thing before it needs charging.  Many think that disabling that bright blue light on the front of it would help alleviate the battery-life problem. But it’s not happening.

The early worries about the DualShock 4’s sticky bumpers has turned out to be warranted, with thousands of controllers facing the annoying sticking problem.

Sony’s Dualshock 4 is a pretty fantastic controller. Mostly because it’s actually different from their last 5, which were all essentially the same thing, just with extra bits added on to them.

The biggest problem with the PlayStation 3 is their cheap controller that has always felt like a child's toy to me, granted that’s just an opinion but it is an opinion shared by many people in the industry. Sony looks to have solved that problem in a big way with the DualShock 4.

I don’t know about you – but I’m growing pretty tired of the rumours surrounding the next gen consoles. It’s time for some solid, hard facts from the platform holders. Unfortunately, that’s just not happening right now, because Microsoft and Sony would still like people to buy their current consoles; so we’ll have to make do with rumours and hearsay for the moment. The latest is more of a confirmation of previous ones – regarding the redesigned Dualshock.

The PlayStation 4 rumour mill is in high gear at the moment and every graphic designer and their dog is currently putting together renders of what they expect the console and it’s peripherals to be like.
