Following the recent leak of the PS4 “Slim” console, it has emerged that the DualShock 4 controller has also been updated, and will come with the new console. On first glance, the controller looks almost identical to the current version, but there is one important change: the lightbar colour now shows through the touchpad. This will be useful for games that use the lightbar to indicate life or other status.
There are no obvious indications of other changes from the image below, but it’s likely that other aspects of the controller may have also been updated (e.g. weight, rumble, etc).
