PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4 controllers will no longer be using analog buttons, instead favoring digital buttons on its face (the buttons that face the gamer), meaning they will no longer be pressure sensitive, according to a report today from MCV-UK.
Now, reports GamesBeat, the digital DualShock 4 buttons will only relay if they are being pressed or not.
The lost functionality, however, isn’t likely to make a huge difference, as most games didn’t utilize the front-facing buttons in terms of how sensitive the player was pushing them.
Also according to the report, the DualShock 4 symbol buttons –– X, triangle, circle and square –– will now be equally distanced apart to make a square.
Apparently with the DualShock 3 the triangle and X were a bit closer than the square and circle.
Sony went through as many as 20 prototypes of the PS4 controller, which you can read about in this Examiner report here.
