Here’s a Prototype of the Next PlayStation’s Controller

Here’s a Prototype of the Next PlayStation’s Controller

What you see above is, apparently, a rough idea of what to expect for the PlayStation 4’s controller. Odd looking, isn’t it?

The image comes courtesy of Destructoid, who notes that it might be plugged into a PS4 dev kit. It certainly does resemble the DualShock controller we’ve all come to know and love, but its analog sticks and what could be a touchscreen wedged into the center of it (is that a speaker?!) leave much to be desired. Or, you know, changed.

Fortunately, IGN was told by one of their sources that the above controller is, in fact, a prototype. Meaning that it could go through several changes before the system’s full release.

Where did this image originate from? Who knows (Dtoid didn’t report that part), but the upcoming Feb 20th announcement from Sony is looking more and more likely to be PlayStation 4 related. Personally, I can’t wait to get an official name soon. Mostly so I can stop debating over what to refer to it as.
