Any PlayStation owner will tell you that the right controller is an essential part of the experience.
There are many third-party controllers which are compatible with the PS4, but the original model sold by Sony remains the most popular choice among many PlayStation veterans. Sony will release PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controllers in new color schemes.
Many will remember that the first iteration of the popular accessory surfaced more than two decades ago when it was released in Japan in 1997.
It became a quick hit among PS1 owners as it was able to provide vibration feedback based on the event which was taking place in the game (as long as the game offered these issue) while also adding the iconic analog sticks.
The vibrations were generated by two individual motors, with one a bigger one, on the left side and a smaller one on the right. Third-party models offered the option to use batteries.
New PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 Color Variations Revealed By Sony
The second generation of DualShock controllers arrived with the PS2. The differences were minor as some design changes were made. The color of the controller and the cable was changed to black and a small PS logo, under the Sony logo.
It was also a bit lighter than the original, and most of the buttons offered analog values as they were pressure sensitive. Besides the standard black version, seven other colors were available.
DualShock 3 came with significant improvements, and one of them is the addition of haptic feedback. The controller is also able to use vibration and motion sensing features at the same time without any interference. Other hardware improvements were added, including wireless capabilities thanks to Bluetooth and a built-n battery.
New improvements were added to the DualShock 4, which is widely considered to be the best controller made for a gaming console. Sony had already offered a rich selection of color variations in the past, but popular demand inspired the company to release another range: Electric Purple, Red Camouflage, Titanium Blue, and Rose Gold. They will go on sale in September.
