Unique GTAV Features For Dual Shock 4

Grand Theft Auto V on the new consoles will be a greatly improved experience.

In addition to a horde of technical updates, we'll get new gameplay features like that slick first-person view. Now, features specific to the PlayStation 4 have been revealed.

During some play time with the PS4 version of GTAV, Gizmodo outlined the unique Dual Shock 4 features. Check 'em out:

  • Access GTA Online's interaction menu by holding the DualShock 4's touch-pad
  • Phone calls and police radio sounds will emit from the DualShock 4's speaker
  • Swipe the touch-pad up or down to change weapons
  • Swipe the touch-pad left or right to change the radio station
  • The DualShock 4 light bar will flash red and blue when you have a Wanted level

We don't yet know if the Xbox One or PC versions will have any unique features so for now, good news for PS4 owners. Grand Theft Auto V for PS4 and Xbox One launches in less than two weeks (November 18), whle the PC installment will be ready some time next year.

I'm pretty sure the PC will have thousands of unique features. I'm still getting it for PS4 though!

Those are actually cool features. I look forward to them. They actually use the Dualshock 4 to its full potential.


Though, I'm not sure about the phone calls. They are important to the story. That's the only thing I'm skeptical aboot.

Right on. I really think the ds4 is an incredible controller in terms of features. Can't ask for much more in a controller.

Nice features but hope they will be optional.
I hate sounds comming from my DS4 - I have it always put on mute.
And I am yet to meet a person who actually turnes back his controller to check the colour of the light...

This along with Inquisition may very likely be the system sellers for me.

Shadow of Morder uses the controller speaker but it's a bit.... stupid. I'm sure Rockstar will make better use of it. It's pretty loud so I hope there is a headphone jack option. Killa Tequilla not sure if you have any games where the speaker is used but I wouldn't worry about hearing things clearly or loud enough from it.
