In a new dev diary for inFamous: Second Son, various members of the Sucker Punch team talk up the DualShock 4 controller and show how they’ve integrated some of its new features into their upcoming next-gen debut.
Beyond what the obvious improvements, such as the curved L and R triggers, means for PS4 games, the team at Sucker Punch also praise the DualShock 4’s tighter dead zones in terms of precision control and how the touchpad and the built-in speaker allow them to develop interesting, immersive moments in the game for players.
“If the controls are right, you don’t think about the controls,” game designer Darren Bridges says in the video. “And ultimately, I want to be thinking: Aim for the head. Aim for the legs. Use this power, use this dash.”
InFamous: Second Son launches on PlayStation 4 February 2014.
