Dual Shock 4, PS4 Camera Unveiled In New Unboxing Video

As you may have noticed in checking around the Internet recently, a lot of people are already coming home with the advanced Dual Shock 4 and the new Eye camera.

If you don't have yours yet, how's about checking out an unboxing video for both accessories? This is courtesy of Arm Length Interviews and it shows off both the DS4 and the camera, both of which feature obvious improvements.

Personally, I don't care much about that central touch pad on the front of the PS4 controller, but the rest of it looks great. The concave triggers and analog sticks should make control that much better (no slippety-slipping off the R2/L2 buttons any more), and I like that Sony maintained the standard format. I know they toyed with the idea of ditching the iconic X, O, Square, Triangle setup and I'm really glad they didn't.

As for the camera, I probably won't use it much but it certainly looks like it's well designed. What do you think?

I would have been devastated if they did away with X, O, Square and Triangle

1)I give 2 f**ks about the camera.

2)It's gonna be weird to have a big controller for a Sony machine.

3) I think the touchpad will make for some great shortcut usage. So long as they don't rely on it like a gimmick and keep it utilitarian things will be fine.

The controller isn't really that big. I would say only slightly wider than Duel Shock 3 at most. Plus it fit nicely in the hands.

Got my PS4 controller today. It was pre-ordered with my PS4 back in June was it?

Showed up on my front step when I got home from work....cool beans man.

and it's not that big , in fact it was smaller than I expected. Kind of heavy though.

I'll wait to see if there's any real support for the new camera before I buy one.

I see these guys use the theme music for Starcade in the background.

Does the DS4 use the same charging cables as the DS3? I couldn't really tell from that video. Please say yes...

I hope so, hoping that's why it doesn't come with a cable. I already have several from DS3, hoping I don't need separate cables for DS4.

yah, all he said was USB port to charge it, but the port seems smaller. Could be same charging cable that came with PS3.

The PS4 controller uses a USB micro-B cable, whereas the PS3 controller uses a mini USB. The system will include a micro-B cable for the included DS4, but the individually purchased cables will not. So short answer, no, they won't play nice with each other.

The good news is you probably already have some USB micro-B's laying around your house. They are used mostly for cell phones and point and shoot cameras.

Damn, I have a ton of mini usb cables. I probably have some micro b cables too, but not one that's nine feet long.

That's what I thought to, that the back would have some sort of rubberized material. Oh well, hope they make some silicone grip (with gills on the side) for the DS4.

So far I would say that out of all the Dualshocks, the PS2 was far the most comfortable.

Well, all I can say is I am excited and hopeful for the day one purchasers of the PS4 and accessories. I think its going to be interesting to explore all the features and how its incorporated in to the PS4's navigation and interactivity with games and such.

Enjoy!

Keep playing!

I got my DS4 from Amazon in the mail yesterday but they haven't sent my camera yet. Its pretty cool to get a look at the DS 4 early but I don't see much of a benefit in getting the camera early.
