Wow, the screen looks like a infrared node on an 80's TV remote. I hope they shape that thing up, Its hideous, I'll take the boomerang controller any day.

Dang.... I didn't notice that screen until now.... Once again I've lost interest on the PS4....

There is no excuse to have a controller that bulky when there are phones with touch screens as thin as they are on the  current market. The controller should only be wider between the joysticks. Hopefully we will see something different in 6 days.

I really hope this controller flops like the PS Move. Copying Nintendo doesn't guarantee Sony success. Just awkward failure.

The only thing I'd like a screen on my controller for is for a Map you'd normally have to pause the game to look at, or access to menu items that normally require a pause.

When I heard the new controller would have a touch screen, I thought we'd see a merger of the PS Vita and a PS3 controller.. instead its a bulky ps3 controller..

And I just saw this article:

 

http://kotaku.com/5984710/report-the-next-playstation-will-stream-ps3-games

 

wtf. So instead of downloading and installing games like with the PSN / PS3, the games will stream instead? If thats the case, they must have some powerful servers running games for streaming. I can only assume this will be Sony's way of eliminating used game sales. Seeing as you'll never have a copy of the game or even a downloaded DLC, then there will be no copying or selling a used disk. But if this is only for PS3 games to be played on the PS4, then this could also be their way of making everyone have to re-buy all their old games to get them to play on the new system.

Looks like the PS4 might be having its own version of xbox's kinect:

When we unveiled Orbis, an enigmatic device called “Dual Camera” was also listed within the info.

“Dual Camera” appears to be an evolutioned HD Eyetoy instead of a Kinect device, based on the features offered right now.

It contains a pair of wide-angle cameras. Each camera offers a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (720p).

Sound is processed by a 4 microphone array working at 48 Khz.

The device can perform some non gaming tasks such as:

- Recognize the user and log in the system

- Video chat

In the gaming field it supports head and hand tracking as new game inputs. Currently it’s not clear if this device will support body tracking in the future as Kinect but it’s almost sure that it will be bundled with every Orbis system.

      Uncharted 4 is $20. I just bought it. I might have to put Mass Effect on the back burner.

      The new PlayStation 4 firmware update will include external HHD support for game installation. Finally. I honestly didn't realize the original PS4s even had USB 3. They are also finally adding custom wallpapers via screenshots. About damn time. The wallpapers in the online store are complete garbage. I'd still prefer to use my own .jpg files like on the PS3, but modders used that feature as a way to hack the system which is why we never got the functionality in PS4. Using a screenshot is completely fine with me.

      For only $150 the Hori’s Tactical Assault Commander (TAC) Pro will give everyone on ps4 a huge advantage with mouse and keyboard controls. According to the box art of the product it is officially licensed by Sony and it's being sold at Gamestop and amazon. But if this is actually officially licensed then why doesn't Sony just allow keyboard and mouse input directly to the console so people don't have to pay $150?
