Offering more than one type of controller for a console isn’t something that is new in the gaming industry, with both Xbox and Nintendo allowing users to play their games with different controllers. However, Sony apparently doesn’t believe in this way of thinking, and that won’t be changing with the release of the PS4 Pro.
Sony’s Mark Cerny recently spoke with The Verge, who asked him about the potential of the PS4 Pro getting a higher-end controller. He replied with “We want to keep PlayStation 4 as a single unified audience. We need to be quite careful to the enhancements we add to the controller. But it’s not the sort of thing that’s going to create have’s and have nots.”
It’s strange that they would bring up not wanting to divide their audience with multiple controllers when they are essentially now doing that with their consoles, and there are plenty of unofficial high-end controllers that people buy anyway. Still, Sony is known for being very cautious with these kinds of things, and maybe it’s something that will happen somewhere down the line.
The PlayStation 4 Pro will launch on November 10th and will cost $399. We recently received footage of Killing Floor 2 running on the console at 1800p, which you can learn more about by clicking right here.
