PS4 prototype controller revealed?

By:  Eddie Makuch


[UPDATE] A “trusted source” has confirmed to IGN that the leaked PlayStation 4 controller image is indeed real, but is only a prototype. The final design could change.

The original story follows below

Sony will reveal the future of the PlayStation brand at a New York City event next Wednesday, but one of the company’s surprises may have just leaked. Destructoid has obtained an image of what is rumored to be the PlayStation 4’s new touch-screen-equipped controller.

The image matches up with previous reports, which suggested the PS4 controller would be similar in shape to the DualShock and include a front-facing touch screen. The rumored controller also does not have Start, Select, or Share buttons on its face, matching up with a past report that these buttons had been shifted or removed.

The controller in question also features some sort of illuminated light on its top as well as audio output functionality, similar to the Wii. The pad is plugged into what looks like a development kit, though this is unclear.

A Sony representative declined 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.
