PlayStation 4 prototype controller revealed

A prototype controller for the PlayStation 4 console has been revealed.

Courtesy of Destructoid, though the image comes from an unknown source, and shows some familiar stuff, some updates to the familiar stuff, as well as a couple of new things.

The D-pad on the left of the controller appears to feature bulkier buttons that are positioned closer together than on the current controller, and the regular buttons on the right side of the controller seem standard. The analog sticks look to be a little further apart than usual, and are concave like the Xbox 360’s.

The much-rumored touchpad is at the center of the controller, and there is a small button to the left of the pad. This could be a start button, which seems to be absent, or it could be the Share button heavily rumoured for the new controller. There is also a glowing section on the top of the controller – likely related to PlayStation Move – as well as a PlayStation button that looks the same as the one on the current PS3 controller.

IGN are claiming that a ‘trusted source’ has confirmed that this is indeed genuine, but stressed that is a prototype, and will likely change many times between now and when the console is released. IGN also contacted Sony for any information on the controller, only to be met with Sony’s regular response in this kind of situation;

 

“We can’t comment on rumors or speculation.”

 
It is extremely likely that we will get a look at the final design come February 20, when Sony are expected to reveal their new console.
