The DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller is the newest in a long line of video game controllers. PlayStation released its first video game console in 1994. Since then, it has released second and third generation consoles, culminating in the current PlayStation 4, or PS4.

The game controller, as its name suggests, allows the player to manipulate or control characters and objects within the game. Older controllers plugged into the console via a cord, but modern controllers operate wirelessly.

The PS4 controller combines a touch screen, buttons, and joysticks. This type of controller is also called a gamepad or a joypad. It is held with both hands, and the player uses their fingers and thumbs to operate the various controls. Other video game systems, such as the Xbox and Nintendo Switch, use similar controllers. Some PC games will even accept USB controllers.
