PlayStation 4 Touchpad: Heavy Rain Dev Quantic Dream 'Very Interested'
Game developer Quantic Dream says it is "very interested" in the new DualShock 4 controller for PlayStation 4.
Quantic Dream was one of the first to get its hands on the PlayStation 4 dev kits and has been hashing out ideas for a PlayStation 4 game since mid-2012. Its developers are behind games that include Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain.
The statement isn't surprising, given Heavy Rain's reliance on quick-time events and gesture commands. The PlayStation 4 controller opens up a whole new range of possibilities with its motion-sensing ability and touchpad.
"Yes, we're always thinking about the controller," Quantic Dream Chief Operating Officer Guillaume de Fondaumiere told Eurogamer at the Digital Dragons conference in Poland over the weekend. "In the past we've made several propositions to Sony, who is the console manufacturer, to make sure that the controller is not a barrier to the experience for certain people who are not used to this controller."
De Fondaumiere added that Quantic Dream is seeking to use the touchpad on the PlayStation 4 controller to help its games reach a broader audience, as opposed to just hardcore gamers.
"We see today the emergence of new interfaces such as the touchpad and you've seen that, for instance, on the new PlayStation 4 controller there's going to be a touchpad-type of system so that you can interact through it," he said. "That's very interesting and we're looking forward to designing games that are adapted to a larger audience."
Quantic Dream confirmed that it is developing a game for the PlayStation 4 in March.
