How Does the PS4's DualShock 4 Stack Up to the Old DualShock 3?

By Sam Gibbs on at

Kotaku managed to get its grubby little mitts all over a PS4's DualShock 4 and put it up against the old PS3's DualShock 3 to see what the difference really was. The DS4 certainly has grown; it looks like it's succumbed to the middle-aged spread.

As you can see in the rough-and-ready video above, the two are still very similar in footprint, just that the PS4's joypad is a little more rounded, or pudgy, if you like. It'll be interesting to see how it feels in the hand. It looks a little more comfortable to hold, which is no bad thing over the DS3. [Kotaku]
