    Really? Makes sense but wouldn't have thought that because the dual shock 3 uses two motors also and that lasts much longer. Guess if they redesigned them and they use more juice that could explain it. And the light always on probably doesn't help the situation

    The problem is the Dualshock 4 is more advanced, the more advanced motors, circuits, light, etc require more juice. Next gen games also require more juice because of the features like the touchpad, changing lights on the controller, and the sensor pad.

    Despite how advanced we are getting with these technologies, we have yet to master how to make them work efficiently. I would expect that a year or two down the line we will get an updated version of the DS4

    Ah yes. Very good point. Didn't think about that. In terms of an update, that would be sweet to make a more efficient model. Not expecting it. Sony only came out with one revision to the DS3. I had both and the only difference I noticed between the 2 was how the battery was seated in the circuit board. Other than that the electronics looked the same and I've shared components between the 2 models. Actually the only difference in model # was a U at the end of the model #.

    DS4 also mounts a small speaker and the Bluetooth is 2.0 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) which needs more energy. DS4 has a couple of brushless motors for the vibration (DS3 had solenoids) also requiring more power. Also consider that DS4's battery has a capacity of ca. 1000mAh while DS3's battery is only 500mAh. Ubernood is right: the energy consumption of a DS4 is much bigger than a DS3 because it has much more electronics inside. As Max said, if you think to play long sessions, you can plug the USB cable. Personally, I have two controllers and a charger, when one is empty I grab the other one.

    Finally was able to pick me up a PS4 and must say I'm loving it so far. I bought it more because of the Exclusives on the system I also own an Xbox One but admit that Playstation exclusive games are always way better than any of the Xbox Ones (which seem more like the exclusives are just sequels to old IP's) The controller unfortunately doesn't seem to last too long compared to the Xbox controller. Other than that I'm definitely not disappointed by it. Now just need to expand my friend list so anyone down for some CoD:AW or FC4? hit me up: BasicConduct

    60 hours on a game can definitely have that effect Welcome aboard

    I've had mine less than a day, and am thinking about returning it. It came with last of us. As far as I can tell, it's not a game, it's a movie that you learn like a trained seal or you die. The package says the site has demos but all I see are trailers that show clips. I like first person shooters, I'm beginning to think they don't exist. I'm gonna check peoples videos, but if they are all this follow the carrot stuff, I'm pretty disappointed.
    Well I found a couple screen shots of first person shooters, but I wish the trailers showed would show actual play, I want to play, not watch crappy movie trailers. Be nice if you could ff through them during play. Impress me with exiting gameplay, not terrible acting, and boring drawn out scenes. Think I'll give the old blood a shot.

    As far as Last of Us is concerned how far have you go into the game?
    When I first started playing it I thought the same,mostly running around watching cutscenes and dialog but believe me,it gets much better and there is actual gameplay in there too
    If you play it through to the end you will appreciate how good it really is.If not perhaps you just dont like any other game type at all other than FPS games.

    If you after FPS games check these:
    Wolfenstein:The Old Blood,Wolfenstein:The New Order,Battlefield Hardline,Battlefield 4,Far Cry 4,Destiny,CoD Advanced Warfare,CoD Ghosts,Metro Redux,Killzone Shadowfall,Backlight Retribution,

    Just got my Pro!

    Loving it and love the different options that it brings especially in Rise of the Tomb Raider and inFamous Second Son. Being able to choose between a locked and unlocked frame rate is brilliant. Allows me to play the game how I want, and the games look goood!
