Warframe devs praise the DS4 as the best controller to date.
It was reported today on VG 24/7 that developers of the upcoming game Warframe have issued high praise for Sony’s upcoming system, the PlayStation 4’s controller.
This praise? That it is the best controller to date. Said Warframe’s creative director, Steve Sinclair, “There are cool things on PS4 that we are taking advantage of. The DualShock 4 is the best game controller I’ve ever put my hands on, I’m so excited about it.
It has touch screen controls. At E3 we showed little swipe gestures to activate your Warframe abilities that people thought was really cool. There are the ‘social features’ like the share button, all those integrated features where you can say ‘I just did this cool thing in Warframe’ and that pushes out over your network.”
They were also asked if Digital Extremes approached Sony in order to bring the game to the PlayStation 4, but Mr. Sinclair replied that it was the other way around. Said Mr. Sinclair, “They approached us actually, I guess it’s coming up to about four months ago. We were in our open beta and rocking the Steam charts there, and Sony got in contact with James, who’s the owner of the company and said, ‘Hey what would you think about bringing Warframe over to our next gen console?”
The decision was seemingly a simple one, as he adds, “We had, probably, a 30-second conversation about if we should do it, and then, Sony squeezed themselves to send us as many dev kits as possible and three months later we were on the [E3] show floor at PlayStation 4 showing Warframe playable.”
Will gamers have the same opinion of the DualShock 4?
