PS4 controller has front touchpad?

By: Eddie Makuch


The PlayStation 4’s controller will feature a front-facing touchpad, a source has told VG247. To accommodate this new feature, the controller’s Start and Select buttons have reportedly been shifted.

previous report suggested the PS4 controller would feature a rear touchpad based on the PlayStation Vita‘s existing technology.

Concerning the PS4 controller’s form factor, the source said it will be “more or less” the same as the current DualShock offering, though the L2 and R2 buttons have been remodeled “for the better.”

As for the controller’s rumored “Share” button, the source shot down this speculation, saying no such feature exists. According to an Edgereport earlier this month, the “Share” button would allow users to post gameplay video and screenshots to the Internet.

A Sony representative was not immediately available to comment.

Sony is holding a New York City media event next week where the company is widely expected to announce the PlayStation 4. GameSpot will be in attendance, and the event will be live-streamed.
