Quantic Dream Finds PS4 Touchpad "Very Interesting"

Posted on Monday, April 22 @ 09:10:56 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


I don't know about you, but I'm not sold on the DualShock 4's awkward-looking touchpad. Fortunately, the guys over at Quantic Dream are a bit more creative than me, and clearly not as cynical.

This past weekend at the Digital Dragons conference in Poland, Quantic Dream chief operating officer Guillaume de Fondaumiere praised Sony's new controller, highlighting the touchpad as an exciting new addition. 

On one hand, if you think of it, up until now at least, no-one's invented a better interface than a game controller to enable [us] to interact [with] a huge variety of styles of games.

On the other hand, we see today the emergence of new interfaces such as the touchpad and you've seen that, for instance, on the new PlayStation 4 controller there's going to be a touchpad-type of system so that you can interact through it. That's very interesting and we're looking forward to designing games that are adapted to a larger audience, but I can't talk too much about it right now.

Meanwhile, City Interactive's Thomasz Gop wasn't quite as enamored with the touchpad; however, he still finds its inclusion interesting. "I don't think it's a breakthrough feature, not to disrespect it - it's still very cool," he told Eurogamer.

Which side of the fence are you on when it comes to the PlayStation 4's touchpad? Let us know in the comments below.
