Some gimmicky touchpad use, and some not as gimmicky, but the triggers look quite good.

What we get with the DualShock 4 looks really awesome. Still don't understand how neither PS4's nor Xbox One's gamepad didn't increase the number of shoulder buttons (or adding some alternative like a mousewheel button or zoom lever or whatever), especially when both say they wanted to *make it ideal for FPS games*, because then they both just straight-up failed to achieve their primary objective (outside of improving input fidelity and formfactor).

More shoulder buttons/functionalities means less loss of control, when the thumb has to leave the analogstick to hit a face button.

P.S. Second Son looks so flippin' clean and smooth. Jeez!

Y es triggers that don't pause or rewind watching tv when i set the bugger down or lob a grenade when i am trying to hide.

Improved triggers and deadzone is great but the whole touchpad thing is imo a big gimmick

While developers certainly could choose to be gimmicky with the touchpad, that doesn't make the pad itself a gimmick.

It's a touchpad that clicks. At the very least, developers can use it for extra buttons. That simple functionality is far from gimmicky, and will see a LOT of use.

Also, see this post, and the video linked inside.

Yea but I think its not really a neccessary feature. I think that if the touchpad were not to be on the ps4 controllers there would be nothing missing. Never have I played any ps3 game and told myself: "oh this game is cool, but i wish it could have some touchpad controls". I just think its not needed and its useless and most of the stuff shown in this trailer could be done with normal buttons.

The Wii also did sound out of controllers, I'm assuming this one won't have a shitty speaker.

I like it when game developers look like pro skateboarders.

I hope I'm not forced to use those fucking "triggers" for all of my shooters.
