Dualshock 4 Quick Specs
What is the key to the success of any business? Looks like Sony Corp got it all figured out as its PlayStation Dualshock controllers have been the subject of desire for gamers around the world for many years. One of the fundamental rules that work great when it comes to constant fueling the public interest in a product or service is making regular upgrades aimed at improving the user experience. The company follows a smart strategy releasing a new version of the DualShock controller featuring the number of changes just when the timing is right.
The release of Dualshock 4 first-generation controllers happened in 2014, while the most recent upgrade took place in 2016 with the launch of PS4 Version 2 remote, also referred to as PS4 Pro controller. DualShock V2 gaming pad pleased the fans with cool and useful improvements such as better battery life, which is super important for dedicated gamers, communication via USB and a light bar that became visible from the touchpad top.
The choice of colors available for the second version of the product is much wider and includes more custom shell options such as Sunset Orange and various Crystal skins.
PS4 Design Lab
Now let's add some numbers to the article as nothing speaks louder than statistics and compare the joypad sales to the success of its closest rival - Microsoft Xbox One gamepad. The official figures for controller units sold are hard to allocate, but we can get a pretty good estimate based on console sales.
According to VG Chartz PS4 significantly outsold Xbox One surpassing the 70 million units mark, while lifetime sales of Xbox One consoles crossed the 35 million mark. These are the results for the end of 2017, the following holiday season has further strengthened the leading positions of PlayStation brand, bringing the number up to 76 million units sold, as per Sony official financial report.
Many fans would love to see the brand come up with some controller aesthetics customization online service for its DualShock 4 products, similar to Xbox One Design Lab. Taking into account a large number of PS4 owners worldwide, the demand for the service and the commercial success of such business endeavor seems obvious.
However, Sony has never really bothered about the extensive customization of its controllers and offered a set of standard solid colors to choose from. It still doesn’t seem that building own Controller Customizer may the path the brand is eager to take. Looks like they are happy with the sales, leading position on the market and don’t see much sense in creating a whole new Build Your Controller experience.
Overloading with options may have a negative impact on revenues and keeping things simple may be the right strategy in their case.
The closest the company ever got to releasing custom PS4 controller skins are making their special occasion and anniversary designs such as the 20th Anniversary Edition shell, game-themed controllers like Black Ops 3 Special Edition, God of War and more. Among the latest added custom shells for PS4 pads we have 2 new limited edition designs - Midnight Blue, made in a noble dark blue color, and, a fan favorite, Steel Black is back.Credit to PlayStation.com
