PS4: 7 Things We Hope To See In Sony's Next-Gen Console

Posted on Friday, February 1 @ 11:06:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn



As we near the inevitable announcement of the next PlayStation gaming machine, excitement for new hardware is at an all-time high. While the Wii U helped to scratch that itch ever so slightly, nothing will truly satiate the tech-hungry nerd within like a shiny new console from Sony or Microsoft. Since a couple of us here at GR are of the opinion that Sony will be first to pull back the curtain, we're going to kick things off with a wishlist for the PlayStation 4.



7. DualShock 4 With Improved Triggers


Many would argue that the Xbox 360 has an edge over the PlayStation 3 when it comes to its controller. The ergonomic design, smooth concave triggers, and offset thumb sticks make it a favorite among gamers, especially fans of first-person shooters. While I don't think Sony should abandon the DualShock design completely (especially if that means a pull-apart Move controller) [Or getting rid of a D-pad that actually works. ~Ed. Nick], I do think the controller could benefit significantly if the triggers were a bit more like the competition's. The thumb sticks, buttons, and form factor can stay the way they are, as I'm sure PlayStation fans have grown accustomed to the layout over the past 15+ some-odd years.




6. 4K Support

Sony's made it pretty clear that 4K is the future—at least as far as they're concerned—so it'd be foolish for them not to build this super high-def support into the next PlayStation. While, yes, 4K televisions won't be a mainstream staple for at least a few years, let's not forget Sony's promise to deliver a ten-year lifespan for each of its consoles. If you believe 4K won't catch on, then I'm willing to bet that you weren't at CES earlier this month. Virtually everyone that has seen these televisions in action is convinced that this is the future, noting that the jump in quality is more significant than you might think.




5. Free Online Gaming

One major advantage that the PlayStation Network has over Xbox Live is the ability to play games online without having to pay a monthly subscription. I really hope that they continue to offer this with the PlayStation 4, while still providing PlayStation Plus to those who want access to free games for a yearly fee. I know a lot of gamers that lean toward the PlayStation 3 solely based on this fact. Sure, there isn't cross-game chat, but we'll get that with the next console... right? RIGHT?!
