start / select button featutre

how do

do the
start and or the select button feature.

Hmm, let me do thinking for

Hmm, let me do thinking for you. Oh, it says there's a touchscreen. And look, it's right where the old select and start buttons are. Could it be that the touchscreen has start and select buttons on it??

controller

its good that sony has gone with a new design thats more ergonomic because sometime i spend 12 hours strait on the dualshock 3 controller and afterwards my pinky and ring finger are numb

Uh, where...

does it say anything about a touch screen? It says touch pad. I love when someone stupid tries to make someone else look stupid. Fail!

textured hand grips ???

this controller looks good. in the last photo here looks like we could have some sort of grippy, non slip surface. well done sony

built in mono speaker??

is it like a built in blutooth??? but i feel like its most likely something else.

Share button

I assume this is for social media. Why is broadcasting your every action on the internet so important that it requires a special button prominently positioned on the front of your controller?

Social Media Button

Sony has put this button on the controler for easy recording. If you were seeing a glitch or having an amazing game you could hit the button and remove most of the leg work of posting the video.

Social Media Button

If it is so important to the company to include the social media, why not include that as a requirement for software development and gaming companies? including the social media button will be a waste of space and money. What about games that don't include this function, what will the button do if its a non-multiplayer game? why not include the social media function as a subcategory under the traditional select button. There should be: start and select.

Share button isn't hurting anyone.

In response to a prior poster's concerns:

You say "There should be: start and select."

Why? Start should be there as a pause button, but Select? We don't need Select. Even the Xbox changed the name to "Back" and EVEN THEN the default 'back' button on the 360 tends to be the red B button, (and the PS2/PS3 default 'back' button was traditionally the 'Triangle' Button. I see nothing wrong with repurposing a button that had little to no importance. Besides, it may still pull double-duty when not in a game; we won't know until later this year.

My second point is that I don't see the inclusion (or re-purposing) of a single button costing all that much money, especially when you take into consideration that this new dualshock has a touch-panel on the front of it! (aka $$$).

Thirdly, "what will the button do if its a non-multiplayer game?" - I'd imagine it will do the same thing. You don't have to be playing an online game to share your massive victory in a God of War campaign or other single-player game - you just need an internet connection. I think the button would be just as useful for showing people how to get a trophy in a difficult one-player game as it would be to brag about a multiplayer massacre.

R3 L3

Wheres the R3 and L3 button

Where they were before...?

I dunno... Maybe where they were placed on the PS3 and PS2 controllers...?

Kinda obvious, man...

Looks Nice

Looks like they added a lot of features, just hope that it doesn't bump the price up, no ones paying $80 for a controller

controller

Are the dual shock 4 controllers larger than previous models?

Battery Life

Why do the new controllers have a short battery life be fore recharging? My PS3 controller lasted 2-3 days playing @ 8-12 hours a session. Will the new controller form a memory and not let the battery full charge if placed on charger before it needs charging. Like playing for a few hours then recharging?
