Developing Infamous: Second Son with the DualShock 4

A video released today on the official PlayStation YouTube channel shows how Sucker Punch Productions developed Infamous: Second Son to take advantage of the DualShock 4 controller, the device that led Sony's PlayStation 4 reveal in February and won a Polygon's Editor's Choice Award at E3 2013.

Check out the video above to hear from the game's developers about traveling to Japan to see prototypes, developing touchpad controls, using the DualShock 4's built-in speaker, the advantages of a smaller analog stick dead zone and more.

Earlier this week, Sony announced that the controller will be available in Magma Red and Wave Blue colors. For more on Infamous: Second Son, be sure to check out our in-depth coverage from E3 2013.
