Rumor: The PlayStation 4 Will Ditch The DualShock

The trusty DualShock controller has been with PlayStation fans since the first version of the console came out waaaaay back in 1994. OK, so the analog sticks and rumbling we know so well weren't there until 1997, but the basic shape was there from the start. Yep, it has been with us, through thick and thin, for nearly twenty years.
And Sony might be about to ditch it in favor of a new control scheme.
To be fair, the DualShock will still work with the PS4, it just won't be the primary controller. And what might the primary controller be?
CVG asked around and got a few answers about prototypes. Apparently some versions have included a touchscreen, while others have biometric sensors in the grips. Also emphasized was that the system would have more cross compatibility with the PlayStation Vita, and the controller would have some similarities to the Vita's interface.
Our Take: Somehow, we think that this a bit exaggerated. Sony's never been shy about experimenting, as you can see the Boomerang controller up above presented as a prototype along with the original PS3. But we suspect in the end, the DualShock won't be gone forever.
We'll know more next month, as Sony is rumored to be debuting the PlayStation 4 to industry bigwigs then.
