The 2016 version of the Sony DualShock 4 Wireless Controller keeps its general design while making a couple of useful tweaks. Compared to the DualShock 3, this controller has improved dual analog sticks and trigger buttons offer precise control, and the capacitive touch pad provides a unique way of interacting with games. The Share button also allows you to share your gameplay over social media.
This version of the DualShock 4 includes a second, small light bar just above the touch pad, allowing players to check its color at a glance. It also allows for data to be passed through its micro-USB port, rather than just power, letting you use it as both a traditional bluetooth controller and as a wired one — for when wireless latency is slowing you down.
- Precision Control
- The feel, shape, and sensitivity of the DualShock 4’s analog sticks and trigger buttons offer players comfort and control for all games on the PlayStation 4.
- Sharing at Your Fingertips
- Share your greatest gaming moments with just a push of the Share button. Upload gameplay videos and screenshots directly from your system, or livestream your gameplay, all without disturbing the game in progress.
- Innovative Features
- The touch pad, integrated light bar, and built-in speaker offer exciting ways to experience and interact with your games. Furthermore, a 3.5mm audio jack offers a practical personal audio solution for gamers who want to listen to their games in private.
- Charge Efficiently
- Easily recharge the DualShock 4 Wireless Controller by plugging it into your PlayStation 4 system, even when on standby, or with any standard charger with a micro-USB port.
