Sure there are only 5 days left until Sony’s big PlayStation announcement, but that doesn’t mean the leaks on what Sony might have in store need to end. The PlayStation 4 looks to be all but guaranteed for an unveiling next week, and over the last few weeks there have been a lot of rumors about a new PlayStation 4 controller that looks a lot like older PlayStation controllers but with an added touchpad, similar to what the Vita has on its back. How this would look and work wasn’t really clear, but today we at least have our first idea of what it will look like thanks to a prototype leaked by the site Destructoid.
As you can see in the pic above, at first glance it looks a lot like the DualShock controller of the PS2 and PS3, but if you look closely you’ll notice a nice, large black touchpad above the PS button in the middle of the controller. Oh, and the big silver box the controller is plugged into? Well that is most likely one of the developer consoles for the PS4 (though don’t worry, the real PS4 will be a lot slimmer and better looking than that).
With February 20th so close all will hopefully be officially revealed very soon, but if there are any other big leaks before then we’ll make sure that you know about them. Stay tuned!
