Exclusive PlayStation Games
The PlayStation 4 has an abundance of great video games that truly push the machine to its operating limits all the while delivering consistent performance throughout. But what makes the PlayStation stand out so much more from other gaming platforms is its great library of exclusive video games. Being an exclusive video game means that there are no other gaming platforms with the same video game!
Among the many great exclusive video games for the PlayStation 4 are Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, The Last Guardian, and Horizon: Zero Dawn. Many of these games are also long time PlayStation exclusive franchises, having been developed for PlayStation consoles for many years.
The PlayStation 4 Controller, the DualShock 4
The PlayStation controller is as iconic as the PlayStation console itself. The name DualShock was first implemented with the PlayStation 1's controller, as the name symbolizes the controller's vibrating rumble motors which give the controllers a physical feedback in games. The DualShock 4 however, is the culmination of many years of innovation with the controllers, resulting in the most ergonomic PlayStation 4 controller yet.
The DualShock 4 is wider than the previous controllers – which mainly shared a similar design; the widening is to fit in two new features of the controller: the touchpad on the top and a light bar at the back. The touchpad adds a new layer of control to the PlayStation 4, allowing for control of a cursor in the browser and also in-game features such as opening a menu. The lightbar is meant to interact with the PlayStation camera and also in-game actions, such as showing off police sirens and lights in GTA V.
