Matt Hill, over at Gizmodo, revealed the new DualShock 4 features for the PS4 release of GTA 5 that add some small but welcome changes to the experience; the new features are listed below.

  • Directly access the online interaction menu by holding the DualShock 4’s touch-pad
  • Phone calls, radio stations and other sounds will come from the DualShock 4’s speaker
  • Swipe the touch-pad up or down to change radio stations
  • Swipe the touch-pad left or right to cycle through weapons.
  • The DualShock 4 Light Bar will flash red and blue when being pursued by the police

These changes are small but take advantage of the DualShock 4’s design and sound like logical additions to the PS4 release on November 18th. Between the recently announced First Person Mode, new content and these DualShock 4 tweaks, it looks like Rockstar is trying to make this remake of GTAV worth re-purchasing for returning players.

I'm a shameless geek for anything comedy, gaming and coffee. I play most of my games on PlayStation and drink my coffee with butter. I have deep admiration for the works of Joseph Campbell, and as such, have a love for powerful stories and engaging narratives in games and beyond. I play anything story driven, mostly Action-Adventure games, RPGs and anything open-world. I've been writing about games for years and I'm now committing dangerously large chunks of time to that, occasionally streaming ( and putting putting out Let's Play videos in the near future. Cool cool cool.
