Yesterday, we saw news that Grand Theft Auto V‘s port will feature a first person mode for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Today we have word of features exclusive to the PlayStation 4 version of the game, though I’d wager that you’ll find them far less compelling than the perspective flip.
The features boil down to the nature of the PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4. Rockstar has elected to have the lightbar on the controller flash blue and red during police pursuits. Further, phone calls will be played over the controller’s speaker (that one I’ll definitely disable as soon as I turn the game on). Finally, you’ll be able to use the touchpad to swap weapons and change radio stations.
Something tells me that none of these are features that will push you to choose the PlayStation 4 over the Xbox One or PC. That said, I’m sure some gamers out there absolutely love it when companies make sounds and lights come from the controllers in order to, I don’t know, further immersion. Me? I like my action on the TV and from my stereo. That’s it.
What about you? If Rockstar gives you the option to drop the lights and speaker phone calls, will you ditch them or keep them?
Grand Theft Auto V will hit the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Nov. 18. PC gamers will see it on Jan. 27, 2015. Stay tuned for more.
