Forums - Sony Discussion - What new inputs could the DualShock 5 add?

Would be nice if Sony evolved up to the mid-90s and made the analog stick the default one of these generations.

Default?! You mean change nothing? Because the PS4 design is the default among consoles...by default. Sony was the dual analog stick original, which happened after the "mid-90's". The next "innovation" was the Dreamcast "inspired" XB off-center controller from 2001. The actual DC controller was garbage. The GC controller needs a mention for existing... "they basically just stuck a couple of analog sticks to their existing controllers and called it a day". Yeah, because the dual analog setup CHANGED NOTHING. Is that your assessment of the core controller design that has been the industry standard for over 2 decades? Because we all still pine for the days of the superior N64 controller.....Nintendo made a square wheel. Amazing at the time. Then Sony made it circle, and everything since has been a slight variation.

Impulse Triggers?

Still don't know what those are...

Wiki Summary: Each trigger features independent rumble motors called "Impulse Triggers", which allows developers to program directional vibration. One trigger can be made to vibrate when firing a gun, or both can work together to create feedback that indicates the direction of an incoming hit.



The thing with Sony (just my observation) is that they see what other companies are doing well and they just borrow that.

Examples?

PS1:
-PS1 controller was basically just an SNES controller with handles. Added a couple more triggers.
-N64 showed off analog stick (and yes, it wasn't the first analog stick.) Sony creates analog controller.
-N64 shows off Rumble Pack. Sony creates Dual Shock.

PS2:
-Dreamcast has analog triggers.
-Sony makes every button analog. Microsoft copies. Nobody takes advantage of the feature. Everyone drops it.

PS3:
-Nintendo shows off motion controls for Wii. Sony adds motion controls to SIXAXIS.

PS4:
-Ouya (yes the friggin Ouya!) had a touch pad. Sony adds touch pad to PS4.
-Wii remote had a speaker. PS4 adds speaker.

Kudos to Sony for the headphone jack and dual analog layout, home button, share button, L3 and R3 though.

Based on their track record, I suspect they'll add the ability to play with half a controller in each hand. Maybe some VR support stuff.

The only two things I really want from Dual Shock 5 is a built in Mic, and for the PS Button to be concave and recessed.

The Impulse Triggers from the XBO controller would be nice. They do offer a massive improvement from Racing games.

I see some possabilities with a touch screen replacing the touch pad, but it would not be gaming related. Personally, I would not want a bright light pointed at my face while I'm gaming, the Xbox Logo on the XBO controller is bad enough, a screen would only be worse.

One thing I don't want to see changed is the placement of the Sticks. The Symetrical layout, with both sticks in the Primary position is as good as it gets.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Yes. Like literally every other company?



Keep it exactly the same and improve battery live. Never going to hapoen, but I would be perfectly fine with it.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Add a Trophy button together with the PS button.
Instant access to your trophy list and a cool looking trophy right there, that would be cool.

I mean what I said.  Make the analog stick the primary control.

Far from the default, Sony is the only console maker that's had that defect in their controller since 1996.

And what have you said?

I don't have to enable the analogs to use them, why do you say the D-PAD is the default? You can go full analog.



Ideally nothing. I'd much rather they remove things than add anything.

And to the people saying built in microphone, fuck that shit! I don't want any fucking spyware with my PS console please.
