In a photo first seen on Destructoid, there is what appears to be a prototype controller for the PS4. At first glance, you can easily see the form of the dual-analog classic Playstation controller that we’ve all grown to know so well.
When you take a closer look, however, you’ll notice a few new interesting components to the new controller. The first thing that stands out, is what appears to be a touch screen pad, replacing the start and select buttons in the middle of the controller.
Bellow the touch screen is a grill that could indicate the use of a built-in microphone, or speaker. Another thing that stands out, is the panel above the wire plugged into the controller. It’s lit up in a manner that is fairly reminiscent of the PS Move.
Indeed, while this is most likely not a hoax, it’s even more likely that this is not the finalized controller that we’ll be seeing with the release of the Playstation 4.
