The buttons on the DualShock 4 feature a similar layout as past controllers. The action buttons feature more responsive springs that will enable you to tap them quicker. The directional pad is made of a sturdier material that also feels more responsive. The shoulder inputs feature a rounded shape, making them easier to grip with your index fingers. One major change is that the Start and Select keys are gone, replaced with the Share and Options keys. The Options button performs the actions that the Start and Select inputs did on previous gamepads. The Share button allows you to share gameplay clips and screenshots to social media. Lastly, the analog sticks on this gamepad feature a ridged surface that makes them easier to control. The touchpad lets you quickly move the cursor around your screen like a mouse. This PlayStation 4 gamepad is a wireless controller and has a battery charge of up to 10 hours. You can charge this PS4 controller via the included micro USB cable. The gamepad can charge even when the system is on standby. The wireless gamepad has a range of up to 10 feet. One DualShock 4 feature that Sony retained from previous accessories is the ergonomic shape. This PS4 controller fits easily in hand and can keep your hands comfortable while you play your favorite games. Like previous PlayStation controllers and accessories, the DualShock 4 features a built-in rumble pack. This pack makes your PS4 controller vibrate to match the onscreen action of your video game, it is dark red while each button and the analog sticks are black. The DualShock 4 is compatible with all PlayStation 4 games and is a handy device for your console.
The new Wireless Controller for PS4 (DUALSHOCK®4) allows the light from the light bar to emit on the touch pad, making a new luminous line in the same color as that of the light bar. This provides gamers with visual information, such as which character they control or health status, at a glance for more intuitive gameplay. Furthermore, the new DUALSHOCK®4 supports USB communication in addition to the currently available Bluetooth® communication, allowing users to have control also via cable.
