    This is a joke right? Like Sony is gonna take a loss of £900+ on every unit sold, lol.

    Nah, it'll be using the latest generation of AMD APUs. Which are fairly impressive for all-in-one units, but still get beat out by most dedicated GPUs in the mid-to-high price range.

    So the same shit basic design they have since PS1 Dual Shock? lol
    This is barely any different, but I guess the expectations from them making new ground is just zero to none.

    Isn't that light on the controller used for VR? Wouldn't that break some games?

    I wish they add the possibility to use standard AA battery instead because if we need to replace the battery someday it is complicated. I use rechargeable battery on my wii controllers and it work very nice I can easily still use them 20 years later if I want. Not sure the lifetime of the DualShock 4 battery have 20 years+

    I don't think so... the motherboards are fully custom on the cheap way all the time with nothing to do with a computer where you can throw almost as many SSD\HDD's you like, custom cases the way you like, lots of crazy motherboards with much more VRM's and better cooling for OC...

    I bet it will be a very cut down version of Ryzen 7 without many features and way less clocks and even the IPC might be lower than the desktop version, then the GPU with the soon to launch of lower end AMD GPU's, most likely PS4 GPU will be a cut down version of something like the upcoming RX580 replacement and maybe just with something custom added for better Ray tracing capability...

    Thumbs are only aligned if you are using both analogs or Dpad and face buttons. If you need to use Analog and face buttons, they are not aligned anymore on PS controllers.

    I see they are continuing to follow the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" train of though. Wonder if they're gonna push the use of the touch pad more this time around or if it'll just share the same fate as the ps4.

    I prefer the ps2/ps3 controller, especially the back triggers.

    That is a bold and rarely seen stance.

    I think pretty much everybody that nominally preferred the playstation efforts that ever held a gamecube or 360 controller also said "wish the PS* controller could have these". In my case it went one further as it was the sort of thing that rendered my hands little more than claws if I decided to have a 7 hour session where nothing else since maybe the NES (and that was only holding the a button to accelerate while gripping it tightly) has come close to that.

    I always found it to be a shame that no game developers really use the touchpad on the dualshock 4 to its full potential. Now I don't want them to go all out and make it completely mandatory like all the weird touch games we got on the DS during the first two years of its life cycle. But being able to do things like navigate menus, scroll through maps, and other quality-of-life things would have been really nice. But almost any games that actually utilizes the touchpad just makes it another button.
