Anyone remember back when people were complaining about lack of analog buttons?

Saying stuff like "racing games will be unplayble on the wii-u".

Apparently, according to them, now all racing games will be unplayable next gen.

Analog face buttons. Please read the article you posted. PS4 triggers are still analog.

Maybe you should read it, because the article states:

Unfortunately for analog fans, Gran Turismo 5 is one of the very few examples of analog functionality in action on the PlayStation 3. This is why the feature has been stripped from the DualShock 4.

It implies that the triggers aren't analog either. Personally, I think the triggers will probably remain analog, but that's not what the article implies.

Joystq messed up. The source they cited stated that only the face buttons are analog.

For the record, they axed the analog face buttons because they were probably the worst gimmick ever made in a modern controller.

The four face buttons on the ps3 controller, IN ADDITION to the triggers were analog. Very few games used this feature. They only removed the analog face buttons from the ds4, not the triggers.

Gt5 is mentioned because, I guess for tradition's sake, the default control scheme used 'X,' the face button, to accelerate. Since X was analog, you could actually control your acceleration by pressing X harder or softer.

The ps4 will be able to handle driving games just fine by using the more modern default gas/brakes mapped to triggers control scheme.

Analogue face buttons are a horrible idea and always have been.
