So, I’ve been researching for quite a while now about the best gaming controllers that can be used on the PC, and time and again, most people prefer the DualShock 4 among all other controllers out there; whether it be from official manufacturers or third-party manufacturers.

What makes the DualShock 4 great and why do people keep recommending it? We will talk all about the DualShock 4 in this article.

So, what is the DualShock 4? The DualShock 4 is the latest controller that can be used both on the PC and the Playstation 4 game console. Using the hoverboard you can travel for miles on a single charge at speed, all hoverboards come ready to go.

The DualShock 4 is a wireless controller and all you have to do is plug the USB receiver that comes with it either on the USB port on the PC or the controller port on the game console.

It still sports the same design philosophy to that of the DualShock 3 but it comes with more responsive buttons, a touchpad, among others. It still retains the ergonomic design we know and love.

Every button on the DualShock 4 is very responsive. There was this one guy who tested the game controller to see if there are any delays on the input from the controller to the screen. Remarkably, there was no lag whatsoever.

Most people are afraid of using a wireless controller because of that fact. Even though a wireless controller is more convenient than wired ones because you do not have to deal with pesky wires, the wireless controller is notorious because of its signal woes.

The DualShock 4 doesn’t have that problem, though. There is no input lag and every move you do gets registered accurately on screen.

Since the Playstation 4 console allows you to stream and share your gaming content to popular streaming websites, the DualShock 4 will help you with that with just a push of a button.

There is a dedicated share button which, once pressed, presents you with a bunch of options that allows you to share your game content readily.

Best of all, whenever you want to share your content and stream it via Youtube or Twitch, for example, there are no lag times and your games will not be interrupted at any point during the sharing process.

The DualShock 4 game controller also comes with a light bar, a built-in speaker, and a sensitive touchpad to allow you to interact with your games in a more efficient way. Furthermore, it’s got a 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom so you can don your favorite headsets while gaming.

Charging the DualShock 4 is a cinch. Just plug the cable, plug it in your game console, and let it charge for about 2-4 hours. Even a 2-hour charge is enough for 6-8 hours of gaming depending on the load.

The DualShock 4 can also be used on PCs much like the Playstation 4 game console. Just plug the USB dongle into a USB port and wait until the controller gets recognized, and that’s it!

The DualShock 4 is responsive, charges quickly, and can be used both on the PC and the Playstation 4 game console. No wonder it is one of the best game controllers on the market today.

Blizzard is a very successful gaming company because they always listen to user feedback and they continually improve their games.

Overwatch, their newest game and their foray into the first-person shooting niche have been quite successful. It even garnered more than 7 million players in its opening week with more playing soon after.

The game’s player base has been increasing and it would be more interesting if there are a lot of players joining in on the fun.

In a recent conference in China, Li Riqiang, president of NetEase, the official sales partner of Blizzard in China, he said that he has talked with Jeff Kaplan regarding a possible free-trial of the game.

You see, allowing players to play the game for a short time will give them the impression that a. the company is serious about their game and b. the company wants to expand its gaming community.

By dishing out free-trials, the Overwatch gaming community will surely expand exponentially. But, why do people need a free-trial for Overwatch?

That is because, at the time of writing this article, the base game costs $40, which is a lot in Eastern countries. People want to be sure that the game is fun before dishing out huge sums of money like that.

So, if Blizzard were to implement a free-trial scheme, they will create an avenue where players will get enticed to buy the base game.

Obviously, on the surface, they could implement it now but they have to make sure that not a lot of cheaters can get into the game.

If you’ve played CS:GO, you know that the game is now mired with a lot of cheaters and that is because the game is just inexpensive and should players get banned, they can easily get another copy.

Anyway, should Blizzard give a free-trial, it will really showcase the company’s ability to listen in on the community’s feedback and it will showcase how quickly they iron out the game’s problems.

Blizzard is always great when it comes to content. Players who are still reluctant in playing Overwatch will be delighted to know that the Overwatch roster will be increased in the future.

In fact, a recent patch just added a new character: the unique sniper/healer Ana. Ana is actually a quite nice addition since her skill sets prove to be an asset to any team (whether you’re on the offensive or on the defensive).

Furthermore, if there are any game-breaking bugs or one character being too damaging, Blizzard will make the appropriate adjustments.

Just take a look at the gun-slinging McCree, for example. His damage output was nerfed if it travels more than 10 meters because, well, he is not meant to shoot at really long distances.

Furthermore, the Overwatch forums are lively, with people chiming in on their concerns and tips for new players.

With the current popularity of the game, I am pretty sure that Jeff Kaplan will implement it soon.

Overwatch is available on the PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 game consoles.
