Rumor: Sony Replacing DualShock Controller For New Console

Posted January 18, 2013 by Esteban Cuevas in News

According to an unnamed source that spoke to CVG, Sony will replace the DualShock controller design for a new design that may contain a LCD touch screen or bio-metrics for its upcoming new console.

The unnamed source claims that many of the controllers currently being tested by Sony’s R&D department do not resemble the DualShock design. Sony has been using the DualShock design for its video game controllers since the original PlayStation 16 years ago.

The source claims these controllers apparently include integrated LCD touch screens and bio-metric sensors on the grips. Another source said that Sony was attempting to emulate the UI philosophies the Vita uses, hence the LCD touch screen. Previous reports have suggested an incorporation of the PlayStation Move controller into the traditional DualShock design. This seems to still be possible, though maybe through an alternate design.

Sony has not made any official announcements so it’s best not to make any assumptions. Even if the new design proves to be true, that doesn’t mean that the DualShock design will be abandoned. Similar to what Nintendo has done with the Wiimote and the Wii U, Sony could still have DualShock controllers (most likely the DualShock 3) compatible with its upcoming consoles, especially if there is to be any backwards compatibility.

This is just the latest leak about the upcoming console from Sony, as well as the upcoming console from Microsoft. Both companies are expected to announce something concrete soon and both of their new platforms are predicted to be released at the end of this year. Do you think the alleged PS4 and Xbox 720 will be released this year? Do you think it’s good that Sony may be making a brand new controller? Do you like the changes the supposed new design will feature? Leave a comment below and let us know.
