Horrible ideawith sony retiring the dual shock. Will have a 4.3 or 5" touchscreen instead with touch sensors

It's a rumor, and you don't even understand the rumor. The controller may just have a touchscreen where the start and select buttons are. They aren't removing the sticks.

LOL even if such a ludicrous thing was officially announced, I STILL wouldn't believe it. Replacing the analog controls sticks wih touchscreens is like replacing plastic forks with 3-prong tinsel wire---it's just dumb.

After the gimmicky mess that was the Vita, I wouldn't even be surprised.

Yes, it will have dual-analog sticks.
Its just rumored to have a touch-pad at the center of the controller where the Start/ Select buttons were.
