What’s the difference between the original and new V2 DualShock 4 controller?
If you’ve seen mention of a ‘New’ or ‘V2’ DualShock 4 controller while looking for a new pad, you may be scratching your head. What separates these two controllers?
Here’s the difference: the new/V2 DualShock 4 was released alongside the PS4 Slim and features a few improvements over the original.
Some listings are a bit vague, but the clearest visual indicator to look out for is the new light bar on the DualShock’s 4 trackpad. This thin slit wasn’t on the original, so just look for the dimly illuminated blue line on the product listing’s image gallery. The original blue/red/gold controllers had black plastic on the back half of the controller, but the V2 versions feature matching colors, albeit a shade darker.
Other improvements include USB functionality, allowing gamers to plug the controller in for lag-free gaming (it simply charged the original), which could give you the edge in online shooters or games like Street Fighter V. You’ll also be able to use this enhanced connectivity to use the DualShock 4 on a PC without paying for the Bluetooth adapter. The rubber on the analogues has been improved (again) to prevent it wearing away so much too.
