    PS4 Controller leaked? Looks like!

    This is a Real Prototype PS4 Controller



    An industry source familiar with the new system tells us the photo is the real deal. But bear in mind, it may not represent the final form of the controller. The touch-pad on the front of the controller is particularly interesting. According to the official Orbis documentation that was shared with us a few weeks ago, it will be a two-point multi-touch capable "pad" similar to the one on the back of the Vita. It can also be clicked for an additional input. Curiously, this prototype seems to not include a "Share" button, despite that button being described in the documentation.

    Looks pretty good actually, I don't like the look of the D-Pad however...

    My eyes are bleeding just by looking at the touch pad being there. Why the hell is it they want to copy Nintendo (as they did with the Move), if it won't work for them and they'll just suffer loses?

    How is that copying Nintendo? It's a track pad not a touch screen...

    That D pad looks like it would either get stuck, or break pretty damn easily. The analog sticks look small (especially in relation to the face buttons). Looks like people will get trigger buttons they like - but at the expense of the control looking much fatter. I hate the aesthetics and think it looks way too blocky. The bonus is, if this somehow equates into the PS4 playing Vita titles as well would really bring in a ton of new developers who would make games if they can play on both systems.

    It could be worse, but that definitely isn't something that my large hands would easily adjust to.

    Not as terrible as I was afraid it would be, but still pretty bad. Don't like the new analog sticks and D-pad and it seems too blocky

    Should point out, if this is indeed real. It's a prototype for developers. The release version may be someone different in form factor!

    I don't doubt that this is probably what the controller is going to be, too much proof. The scary thing is if DualShock 3's sell for $59.99 regular - how much is Sony going to charge for these expensive looking things? Sony makes a lot of it's money off of peripherals and accessories (it's standard first party practice by all three to charge a premium for first party brand items) - this thing screams a minimum of $79.99... if not more. I know I didn't buy my second controller for PS3 until about 3 years after I bought the system - I get the feeling that this is going to be another late luxury buy.

    Now that you have mentioned it, I also now wonder that. I also didn't buy a second controller until two years after I bought my PS3 (I just always much rather used the money for more games than a controller that I wouldn't use much [and I still don't use it much, just for trophies]).



    As for my opinion on the controller, I don't really like it, but I can live with it. I like that they stuck with the traditional layout. I also think that the analog sticks are no longer rounded. If that is the case, then I like that because my fingers tend to slip from time to time.

    "Official Prototype"

    Nothing to see here until it's properly confirmed/demo'd.

    Same shit . Adding a screen to the controller is just moronic.

    I don't think so. Maybe it's their "tester" machine. Yes it may be a PS4 inside but that's not what they will be selling. They'll compact it as much as possible and make a pretty case so it will sell. I wouldn't buy that giant silver box, would you?

    Also that controller looks bad but I'd have to play with it to know.

    If so, it's probably just the dev kit. Not the final product that we'll have at home. Dev kits never look like the actual system. They usually just end up looking like cannibalized PCs.

    It's decent, but hopefully not the final design.

    My initial reaction: It looks like @#$%. Plain and simple. BUT that is only my initial reaction, so don't be quick to flame me for it. I'll have a more concrete opinion when we know it will be the official PS4/Orbis controller.
