After quite a wait, Sony satiated our curiosity and put to rest doubts and speculation with the last November launch of its much awaited gaming console, the PS4 , last year. The machine is indeed a sweet piece of hardware with a multitude of features and improvements. So, the new generation has almost everything we could ask for, video streaming, great graphics and a buttload of more horsepower. ‘Almost’ everything we could ask for.
Like any other piece of hardware out there, the PS4 has a lot of room for amelioration. So how can Sony make their latest gaming console even better than it is now? Here are 15 things that we would like to see in the future models of the new-gen console.
15. Increased DualShock 4 Battery Life
Finally, the blokes at Sony thought that it had been time enough that gamers got fed up with the distinctive PS controller, and put their best brains to design a ‘new’ controller, the DualShock 4. Now some of us were grousing about the controller before it came out, but once we got a hands on experience, it turned out that the controller’s a pretty well engineered accessory.
It has a nice feel to it, good triggers and nice and buttons that aren’t clunky, alongside the integration of the PS Move Motion Controller. Then you look at how long it lasts with a full charge and you know it sucks. Utterly. The PS4 controller pales in front of its predecessor with in this regard. The PS3 controller seems to last an aeon in front of its successor which has a battery life of about 7-9 hours; roughly a third of the PS3 controller. That’s regressive engineering. Sony really needs to revise the controller hardware to make its battery lasting.
