    Yes, not having to swap out batteries or deal with the added weight/space requirements of 2 AAs really sucks. Biggest gripe with the 360 controller is the damn battery pack that gives me finger cramps.

    Nice information Dusean, funny how I haven't seen this on any other sites or anything actually. (y)

    This. Sounds. Great.
    I can see it now, all you'd need is a surround sound and scary games may scare you again haha.

    Pretty neat information. At least it appears Sony isn't trying to be as invasive with the Eye as Microsoft seems to be with what they are wanting to do with the next gen Kinect. Worrysome stuff there.

    So the entire DS4 controller will be both a fusion of DS3 + PlayStation Move along with the PS4 Eye that comes with the console. Using this could mean that they controller has more use than normal controllers and not to mention the fact the touch pad also is one gigantic button as well.

    New infos regarding PS4:

    http://gematsu.com/2013/03/sony-shares-new-ps4-details-at-gdc


    There's more on the site..

    I don't understand much about the resolution of the touch pad (1920x900). Maybe it's "relative" to the 1920x1080 on the display..

    Reminds me of the VITA's backpad; just as wide horizontally but less tall vertically compared to the main screen.

    Nah I doubt the touch pad res and digital only inputs are old news.

    Totally not digging the glossy bed of the face buttons.

    The grips look kinda ugly (unlike the tapered grips on DS3). Like sausages :p

    Probably better presented info about the PS4:

    1 The PSN Friend Limit Is Increasing
    2 “A Very Large Hard Drive in Every Console.”
    3 Buttons: They Are a Changin’
    4 The PS4 Charges Controllers When It’s Sleeping
    5 Headset in Every Box
    6“The PS4 Eye Will Enhance the PS4 User Experience.”
    7 Your Real (PSN) Names
    8 Recording Is Mandatory
    9 Remote Play Upgrades
    10Colors > Numbers

    Link provides better description of each..

    Not exactly sure what they said about headset though.. Isn't the PS4 DS4 some sort of headset? Or will they be providing a seperate, more dedicated accessory.

    I assume its a safe area around the edge of the screen for things like dragging objects off the screen or some kind of other reason they don't want you to hit the edge.

    I like the idea that the controller turns off and on when put down and picked up. Always got annoyed when I went to the bathroom or for some food and had to turn it back on again. Yeah I know you can change the shutdown time but I also hate recharging.

    Forget all the other features! There is a freaking light bar that changes colors!! Now I wish the Vita had a light bar.

    What the hell is a "very large hard drive" in console terms???? I believe it's going to be rather tiny, or Sony would be actually bragging about the high capacity (1TB, 2TB...).
