The light bar is for PSVR tracking.

Useful.



My only issues with the PS4 controller were:
It's too easy to strike the controller when you mean to hit a button, and hurt your finger, or your nail. Missing the Circle button is painful.
No pressure sensitivity on face buttons
Limited to no more than 4 players, despite the PS3 being able to connect up to 7 controllers.

Slow learner, eh?

But yes, it is useful.

Mark Cerny is designing what sounds like a very boring upgrade. No unique features as of now; just tech.

Light bar is one of my least favorite features, but oh well



Option to turn off light bar and removablr batteries is all that needs to change. I know they aren't gonna go to removal batteries though, so I hope they at least let us turn off the light when it's not needed. The touchpad has no negative impact on anything that I can think of, though I suppose it adds a little bit to the cost of manufacturing the controller.

What were you hoping for?

Why wouldn’t they be?

The touch pad is a giant menu button in most games, feels absolutely great hitting it to pop open the map.

The light bar at a minimum is an indication that the controller is on.

I have never understood the issue people have with either of them. It seems to just boil down to the same old gaming culture disapproval of anything new.

The only thing that the DS4 has that is a real issue is the tiny battery. That is where the problem is, thankfully they have already confirmed they are addressing that with this controller.

Agreed.  

I really like the touchpad because of that.  In some games, it feels like a different kind of button.  And other games use it beyond a simple button, and have swiping change what the input means.

And it helps make Astrobot possible, so it is well worth it.

I think it's kind of a tricky situation. 

Some people just want a refined experience, no unique features just better versions of what they already have.  

And it tends to be safer to have a system focused on those people.

What kind of unique features would you hope for?

It'd be nice if they could make it dim or even turn it all the way off.

With a better camera system for PSVR, it might be completely unnecessary to have a bright lightbar in the first place.

I was hoping that they continue their efforts to shit on backwards compatibility and remove the two worst things they ever put into their hardware for the betterment of humanity.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I love the touchpad. As for the light bar, i wish they'd give us the option to turn the damn thing off completely.
