PS2 emulation is good enough at this point that no, I don't really need to care about this.

Same with PS1 emulation.

I don't care much about PS1 emulation, as even a sub-par computer can emulate those games almost perfectly nowadays. PS2 games require a much higher end computer than I own though, and the emulation is still not perfect.

But it's hard to get rumble working with the games.

@chose: That's up there with the dumbest things I've read all year, especially that second paragraph.

He is right though, piracy isn't stealing. Theft has a very specific definition. Copying a bunch of 1s and 0s is technically not stealing, it's just being an asshole. And I don't even pirate myself an am always encouraging my friends not to pirate but for different reasons like supporting the industry.

The faster charging of USB 3.0 can be implemented on USB 2.0 devices and often is.

Honestly, the battery in the DS4 is unlikely to be much over 500mAh and Sony isn't going to charge the battery at over 1C (500mA) anyway. So higher powered charging probably wouldn't make a noticeable difference.

What about the fact a 3.0 micro-B port can connect with both a 2.0 and 3.0 cable, but a 2.0 micro-B can only take 2.0 cables of that format? In other words, the 3.0 version has wider compatibility.

Because the only time it will ever be connected is when it is off while it charges. Why are you complaining about this?

Because it would be nice to only have 3.0 cables lying around which I can use across any hardware.

That's the nice think about 3.0, all of it works fine with 2.0 stuff. 3.0 cable works on 2.0 ports. It's basically the same cable with a little extra on the side. If the console is 3.0 out, you should be fine just using a 3.0 cable to the controller.

And I believe 3.0 can be "super charged" for putting more power through it for the purposes of charging, but lets be honest, it's not going to be a problem.

A usb 3.0 type-B plug cannot enter a usb 2.0 type-B receptacle as it is slightly too big, but a usb 2.0 type-B plug can enter a usb 3.0 type-B receptable.

Why on earth would a wireless controller need USB 3.0? It will charge the same speed either way...

I believe 3.0 charges faster.

The console itself has USB 3.0 ports. However, I can't help but be very disappointed in Sony's decision to use a USB 2.0 port on the Dualshock 4. It doesn't make any sense to me. Any possible reasons as to why?

I don't need to and I don't want to sit through 3 ever again, plus I'm not playing that game.

But 3 is awesome.

but no it's not.

I really can't refute that. You make an excellent case.
