Potential future PlayStation 4 owners can now pre-order a separate DualShock 4 controller straight from Amazon.com for players who are in need of a spare. The next-gen controller is included in the PS4 bundle deal when you purchase the console as soon as it’s released, but individual controllers are now on sale.
This is for gamers who tend to get a little frustrated with video games and either chuck their DualShocks against the wall or maybe just break them in the heat of the moment. Alternatively, you may need one as a spare or just don’t like sharing with other people because of a hygiene issue.
Whatever the reason, the Amazon listing has a shipping date of 31st December, 2013. The pricing has been set and you can claim yours for £39 / $60 with the tax being excluded. The date is likely to change however, as Sony are yet to announce an official launch day for the upcoming next-generation machine.
The new DualShock 4 has a front-facing touch pad, a share button to broadcast live gaming, a built-in light bar and built-in speakers. It’ll supposedly give players a greater sense of control as well.
