Buttons: They Are a Changin’

Back on the PS3, the D-pad and the face buttons of the DualShock were analog – meaning that they could sense pressure and change input based on it. Norton said that developers didn’t use that option, however, and the DualShock 4 ditches analog and replaces them with digital buttons. The touchpad resolution on the controller is 1920x900, and the L2/R2 buttons are curved to help avoid accidental Netflix fast forwarding.

 

 

Wait a minute isn't the touchpad on the Dualshock 4 like the touchpads on laptops, how can it have a screen resolution???

Its not a screen, or is it?

“A Very Large Hard Drive in Every Console.”

Again, Norton didn’t offer specifics as to what the exact size of PS4 hard drives would be, but he stated there will be “a very large hard drive in every console.” Food for thought.

 

A large HDD means nothing. What we as consumer should be caring about is: will the PS4, like the PS3, use laptop HDDs & allow us access to the HDD bay.

 

 

Headset in Every Box (Ooohhhh Yeah)

The PlayStation Network is a quiet place right now. Why? Well, the PS3 didn’t bundle a mic with the console, so lots of players never grabbed one. The PS4 will put a headset in every box so that communication is easy.

 

I hope these are good headsets. From my experience the PSN is not  quiet place but one packed with people broadcasting subway noises. What we need is for people to understand the importance of clear voice chat.

 

 

Recording Is Mandatory

Norton spent a portion of his presentation making sure developers knew the PlayStation 4 does a lot of heavy lifting. Recording footage? Sharing content? That’s all on the console. The developers don’t have to put anything special in their code. It’s all built to do it on its own.

 

Recording is mandatory? I will be accusing all of you of peeping toms. Then again, who wouldn't like to see me Smiley Very Happy

 


 


It's assumed that we'll be able to ugrade the PS4's HDD the same way we can with our PS3s. Sure, no one should live their lives based off of assumptions, but I think it's safe to say, in this case, that the PS4 will continue to use 2.5" HDDs.

Im mostly excited for the buttons, included headsets, video recording and sharing, and being able to charge the controllers with the system off. I like the sound of it all, though, tbh.

The resolution of the touchpad is in relation to the resolution of the screen. The same is applied to laptops.
