Below are the details, to quote: The battery in the DS4 is a 3.65V 1000mAh battery.

The aftermarket DS3 batteries fit perfectly in the DS4 with no modding required!

One I got is a 3.7v 1800mAh battery (the mAh rating is the charge life rating) it cost me under $9 shipped!

I have gone from around 8hrs per charge to nearly 14hrs per charge with the new battery!

Finally, below is a DS4 Accumulator Mod / DualShock 4 Accumulator Mod Tutorial from Reidenschi as follows:

Hello everyone!

Today I want to tell how to make 2400 mAh accumulator for your DS4.

We need two mobile phone accumulators "BL-4J" 1200 mAh 3.7v each, one accumulator connector ( I get one from old videocard cooler) and tools for disassembling DS4 and soldering accumulators together.

In first you need to take off accumulator, accumulator holder and reset button.

Tiny Brains on PS4 11/26: A Look at DualShock 4 on PlayStation 4

58w ago - Co-founder of Spearhead Games Malik Boukhira announced today that Tiny Brains hits PS4 on 11/26 alongside a look at the DualShock 4 controller on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: My friend Simon Darveau and I quit our jobs at AAA gaming studios in favor of a smaller, more experimental and creative independent game development. We wanted to create a new kind of game experience, and what better way to do so than to ride the wave of the new generation of consoles?

So with the help of PlayStation's push for indies, we found our experiment in cooperation, Tiny Brains, coming to life on the shockingly high-res screens of the brand-new PS4 on November 26th!

For some background, Tiny Brains is an upcoming action puzzle game that follows the adventures of four tiny (but super-powered!) lab animals that have been experimented on by a mad scientist. Each "tiny brain" has a unique physics-based ability and players must work together to combine their powers and escape the trick-ridden science experiment.

We made this game to truly be about co-op - unlike some co-op games where the stronger players can complete the objectives while their less-experienced friends hang back and bumble about, in Tiny Brains, all the animals' powers must work in tandem in order to progress. You and your fellow...
 

Video: Transistor on PS4 and the Secrets of the DualShock 4

63w ago - Supergiant Games Creative Director Greg Kasavin shared a video spotlighting Transistor on PS4 showcasing some secrets of the DualShock 4 controller on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: While being part of a small independent studio like Supergiant has its share of challenges, it's got a lot of advantages going for it, too.

For instance, one of the ironic differences I've experienced going from a very big game studio to a very small one is that things can often move a lot faster when there aren't too many people around to say "no."

This simple fact is core to our creative process at Supergiant. We like quickly coming up with, and trying, new ideas all through development. If you can loop through that kind of process quickly enough, it can start to produce great results, while the many inevitable failed experiments are easy to move on from, having taught you something.

Let me tell you about one unexpected example from recent months, involving a little trick we decided to try on a whim with the DualShock 4, when we first got our hands on it.

The story of our game, Transistor, revolves around this woman called Red, who winds up with an extraordinary weapon that, among its mysteries, is able to speak to her. When we tested early versions of the game on our...
