    There is no way they would do that...would they?!?! If they drop the analog controllers I will personally drive to their HQ and choke them out Royce Gracie style!

    IGN and Kotaku (lol) reporting from their "sources" that this is 100% a prototype but may not resemble final product.

    Fascinating...

    I really don't think Sony would be as stupid as to get rid of both analog sticks. Neither would Microsoft or Nintendo for their home consoles.

    Not a good design. The analog sticks look like they would be uncomfortable, the directional pad is too tight needs to have some room between each one. The PS button is to far down and looks like it's mushed in together. Above the ps button looks like a speaker. Could get annoying when you press the touch pad for select or start. It's a bad design. Hopefully since it's just a prototype, sony will come up with better ideas.

    Yet confirmed

    Sources confirm the veracity of photography command of PlayStation 4

    Firsthand national Videogamer in Portugal.
    The day is marked by what may be the first glimpse of the next new command console from Sony.
    In the last hours that a photograph that appears to be a command-style PlayStation landed on the Internet, launching a discussion about their veracity. In the aforementioned picture can the main novelty (whose existence was to be spoken for a long time), namely the touch screen in front of the command. The analog also appear to be different from those to which we are accustomed.
    Although it is not anything official, according to statements made ​​by a "reliable source" site IGN , this command is in fact a reality. However, only one prototype is used in a very early stage of production.This may explain the fact that the contours of the command look something rude to that which is already seen by some as the final version of "Dualshock 4".

    More information will be released as they become available

    So a prototype

    The photo is overblown so it's probably either taken with a high ISO setting or with a camera flash. If its taken with a flash it could result in some odd looking reflections.

    Or the dev with that devkit broke his controller. We will never know.
    Other opinions are available.

    Don't like the sounds of this at all!!!
    If Sony were to do that, they would be forced to redesign it again. Millions of angry Sony fans would demand them to change it back. But hopefully if Sony has learned anything, it's not to piss off their fans.

    Yeah. That's why I'm thinking this is nothing more than a rumor in the pot of rumors. I don't think they could be this dumb. Plain and simple.

    Why would you have a touch screen on the front of the controller wedged between the dpad and the buttons? That makes no sense to me.

    Even it being an E-ink screen to facilitate button mapping or something makes NO sense. Compare this thing to Razer's Sabretooth:



    The "razer" logo at the bottom of the unit that glows? That's an OLED screen. For button mapping and such.

    But why would a controller made by a console manufacturer (for consoles) even need that function? That's mostly a PC thing to me.

    The only other option im seeing here is some form of sensor.. But for what I have no idea.

    I can just about guarantee that won't happen. Too many multiplatform FPSs out there. No way could you do a proper Free Look with a touch pad.

    My quote from another PS4 controller thread

    But that PS LOGO button will have other abilities too and the abilities will do with HOME, PSN, RECORD, and it might also might be a MIC on the controller for communicating with some games and to turn on and of the PS4...


    It is just a redesign of the controller and the buttons will all be in the same place as before... But they will add new features..


    What they are, is anyone's guess... I am just posting what i think it might be
    So i was right in my assumes on what it might be

    I'm with you here. It just wouldn't work. It would be like playing a console game with an Iphone. Fuck No Thank You!

    Sony wont go full touch. That'd leave them in a position where you could get the same experience for cheaper on an iPad.

    LMAO, why are you people even questioning if they would get rid of the analogue sticks!? That is the most ridiculous rumour ever and considering they recently made a big deal about getting two sticks on the VITA there is NO WAY they would do this.
    Trophy-licious!

    A trusted source has told IGN that this controller is real. However, our source notes that it's an early prototype. The controller, in other words, is likely to change between now and when the console launches.

    Sony has responded to our inquiry to note that it "can't comment on rumors or speculation", its typical response. We'll almost certainly find out what the final controller looks like at the PlayStation event in NYC on February 20.

    This controller business just made that wait time for the 20th go up by about 30 for me! I hope we just get to see the system design and controller revealed. Which I'm sure we will.

    It's a reflection. You can see hair if you look away from the buttons a little bit.

    Hopefully the dpad buttons on the final build wont be seperated, i have always wondered why theyre seperate as it pretty much eliminates fighting games on it imo. Making moves on the SNES controller was rather easy in 2D fighters while ive never seen any point in using it on the PS consoles. Not that i play alot of fighters, but i lost interest in SSFIV quickly after a coup days due to the controller. Wont be a big issue, but it will most likely eliminate the purchase of a interesting fighter on the next console for me.

    Otherwise doesnt look that different i just hope the surface of the analogs arent getting quickly slippery like the Dual Shock 3, which were much worse than those on dual shock 2 imo

    Definitely a prototype.The final design of a controller takes a lot of time and research in order to develop. They just needed to get controllers into the hands of devs so they could design their games with the new features in mind, so they quickly slapped together this thing. No reason to give the devs updated versions as they have the same functionality, and it would just be a waste of time/money. Also, unlike past generations they couldn't just use the same DS shell/look because this new one has the touch pad which is a significantly new feature and essentially requires a design built from the ground up.

    If it looks like that, I'm pretty sure I will enjoy. Btw I'm thinking that blue lit thing on top may be some sort of eyecam recognition device, just like the sphere on the PS Move controller.

    Really? I've always loved the DualShock d-pad for fighters, at least compared to the 360 d-pad.
