PS4 Slim New Controller

As you may know already, Sony is slowly gearing up to release the PS4 Slim as a new alternative to their current game console. As the name of the console suggests, the PS4 Slim will be a smaller, more lightweight version of the original PlayStation 4. This is a move that Sony has made plenty of times in the past with all of their consoles. In fact, Sony even released a PlayStation One slim, and have been doing so with their main game consoles ever since.

Because of this, it's no surprise that a PlayStation 4 Slim is on it's way. However, the surprising part is that a newly reworked DualShock 4 controller may be released alongside the PS4 Slim.

According to rumors, the new controller will have a change to the lightbar. The lightbar is used to signify each player for split-screen games. Each player is given a different color. Players can also change their own color for their profile so that players know that they are signed into their own account when playing on their own.

On the current variant of the DualShock 4 controller, the lightbar appears on the front of the controller, facing towards the TV when games are being played. In new footage, it appears that the lightbar will appear on top of the touchpad as well. It seems as if the light will 'bleed' through the touchpad, allowing players to see the controller's lightbar color without having to twist the controller towards them.
