PlayStation 4's Dual Shock 4
Dual Shock 4 will be release on 15

Sony has reportedly advised users not to put too much pressure while using the analog stick, after many players have complained about the analog stick in PlayStation 4's DualShock 4 controller.

Speaking about the issue, a Reddit member named TheBeardedDen said: "I won't mention my previous job (I was a DM there, and more... cough above regional cough) But I still get the corporate emails even though I quit a while back."

"There have been a few cases of this reported. The only reply that was worthwhile was from refurbishments department and it goes: Tell people to not press so hard, or that is what my Sony rep tells me ' to which was replied 'That is stupid, it is meant to be beat on.

"Then the final reply 'Just return them, maybe it is a fluke?!, 100+ cases of this happening, 100k controllers delivered, seems as though its not a worry. They sort of ignored the fact that the ps4 is not out, and most folks are not even touching their controllers yet.

"But I sort of agree, only for one reason below.

"I do other game related work. For over 45 days I have used the ps4 controller and X1 controller (for 10 days) exclusively, nothing has 'gone wrong' yet. But I must admit I do prefer the X1 controller. Maybe 250 hours on them at this point. Not so much as any trouble," he added.

Though this can only be looked at as a rumor rather than an actual story, we can only wait until the launch of PlayStation 4 on 15 November. 

The DualShock 4 is identical to its predecessor DualShock 3, but with more features added. It has a touch pad located on the top of the controller, which can also be clicked. It will also offer users a Light Bar that will be useful when a game character is low on health or takes a major damage. It will feature three LEDs,  which will illuminate in different colors

Sony has provided a SHARE button where players can upload their triumphs and accomplishments on Facebook or stream it live to Usteam or Twitch.

The contoroller will also have a built-in speaker and a stereo headset jack allowing users to chat online with friends while playing the game. Sony is attempting at immersive gaming by adding enhanced vibration in the controller that will heighten gaming experience. This controller will also come in Wave Blue and Magma Red colors apart from the original Jet Black, the other color varieties will be sold separately as individual units.
