The new controller, officially known as the DualShock 4, carries the basic design of the original controller, which is not a bad thing … why fix what’s not broken.

From the pictures shown at the PS conference it appears the controller has a more textured, possibly rubberized, feel to it.  The DualShock 4 will also have “enhanced rumble capabilities.”

As rumored earlier, the DualShock 4 does have a PS Vita style touch-pad, A ‘Share’ button which will allow you to share screen shots or video clips to social media outlets or friends, a headphone jack, which may be a proprietary connector and the  light bar that we’ve talked about in a previous post.

The light bar between the shoulder buttons will work together with a new Kinect style stereo camera, which will be bundled with the console,  to track detailed positions of the controller.
