PS4 controller screenshot appears online – rumor

Thursday, 14 February 2013 20:36 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Destructoid has been handed a screenshot of what appears to be the new PS4 controller. The site isn’t sure about it, and neither are we, but there you go. It shows the rumored touchscreen or touch-pad depending on the rumor, and revamped twiddle sticks, and appears to be plugged into a devkit. The controller looks rather “thick” to us, but that could just be the picture angle. Judge for yourself. Sony is hosting a NYC event next week where it’s rumored to be announcing its new console.

    Could be, all comes down to the feel. The day I pick up an offical PS pad and like it…watch out lol.

    But yeah the screen looks too small to be much use. Reminds me of the DreamCast VMU in that regaurd. Displays a bit of info, but are you going to be able to actualy do with it?

    Cut and paste of my reaction from the forums, where Cyber scooped ya.

    It looks very…prototype-y.

    It could be that it is legit, but comes from a debug system whereby the form factor of the controller is not-final, and the one we see next week will be different. Or some case-modder made a controller and threw it up on Imgur to fan false speculation, either/or.

    I kind of think it looks sexy tbh. I just would like to see a PS pad with less of a bend/tilt down in the “Handles” and instead more of a contoured feeling in same. They just don’t fit comfortably in my hands.

    Looks like it has taken a few cues from the 360 controller, which I’m all for. I do hope they have refined it a bit from the version in the screenshot though (whatever version it is).

  11. CyberMarco

    Gotta be fast Steph! :p

    Well, the controller still maintains the DualShock feeling. I find the new d-pad and the concave/convex sticks a nice change.

    So im confused, the rumor that it’s a touchpad (back of Vita) or a touch screen?

    #14 2 years ago
  15. TheBlackHole

    Looks legit. Seems like they’ve tried to emulate the 360 a little by thickening the handles, but the sticks are still in a stupid place and the D-Pad looks terrible.

    I didn’t expect anything less from a Sony controller, but (and I never thought I’d say this), I think I like the look of the current DS more!?!?

    #15 2 years ago
  16. fearmonkey

    I don’t have a Vita, but it had a touchpad underneath doesnt it? I think that would have been better. The touch screen doesnt have to be big, just enough to pinch and swipe to go through menus. I think I like the idea better than having an actual large second screen in my hands, or forcing me to use a Kinect2.

    Fake or not i like the look of it, though I still prefer the asymmetrical stick layout.
    I like that box its plugged into, looks a bit smaller than the original PS3….

    “Rumored touch screen”? I thought it was rumoured to have a touch pad?

  21. TheBlackHole

    Ah, who the hell am I kidding. It’s real people.

    It doesn’t quite look as bland as that now (it’s not Matte, for a start), but that’s pretty close to the final controller.

    The light on the top is essentially part of PS Move, if that wasn’t already obvious. So now ALL your Sony shit glows up.

    Also, I find it more interesting that nobody has questioned what the box on top of the ‘dev kit’ is :)

    #21 2 years ago
  22. SlayerGT

    @19 like me..which is it supposed to be?? I always thought it was a touch pad. I believe I’ve read both but I personally never expected a screen.

    @23
    Thats exactly what that is, nice find. The fact that this supposed dev kit is next to one we can confirm as real makes it seem pretty legit.

    Those holes on the pad would indicate a built-in mic and/or speaker. Either that or its just for dev build cooling purposes, i assume it looks so thick because its a dev build too.

    #25 2 years ago
  26. MadFlavour

    Hey Sony it’s the size analogue stick positions and lack of triggers stupid. Yes a little screen in it might be cool, but lets start with the fucking basics.

  27. Patrick Garratt

    I haven’t personally seen it, but that fits the description I’ve been given.

    Also, regarding the blue section. I strongly suspect that’s Move integration.

    Not as bad as I was worried it would be.

    I was told the Start/Select buttons were “flush with the pad” to stop you pressing them accidentally. Are they underneath?

    According to Kotaku.

  32. Gekidami

    Start/Select could be the two (what look like) buttons to the left & right of the middle part, you cant see them on the small pic up there but you can on this bigger one:

  35. Christopher Jack

    I don’t see the point of a touch pad on a controller with analog sticks. I can’t see any practical use of it, gimmicky shit at best. At least a touch screen can have its uses, namely for quick access to inventory & statistics, perhaps rear vision in a racing game, really just all sorts of near things yet to be explored.

    My problem with nintendo’s approach has more to do with the power of the consoles & the fact that 99% of my games are Multiplatform. I simply have no reason to have a DS or Wii u.

    Tea, your gonna see gamers that have claimed to be non loyal buy into the PS4 if it is good enough. Your not looking at Sony haters so much(sure there are a few), and more looking at people that didn’t like the PS3. I was one of those people.

    I am not all that excited about the next gen of consoles, MS or Sony. But I would be lying if I said I wasn’t keeping an eye out. If something impresses me enough, I will buy one.

    well the analog sticks are finaly cave-in still the controller looks silly and still small as fuck

    why did they include a touch screen? they could easily add extra buttons below the controller

    just like the madcatz F.P.S PRO

    #53 2 years ago
  54. Telepathic.Geometry

    I hope that those analogue sticks are better than the existing controller’s, which are in my opinion, pants. It’s a shame that they’re going with a front touch pad, I was hoping that back touching would be in play, which might have meant Vita games coming to PS4 too, and have an extra input while playing. Maybe to reload weapons, or swipe ID cards or something…

  55. DeVitowned

    I hope the new Playstation lets me donate sperm and share it over a revamped PSN.

    One more thing, the cord going into the controller looks permanent, as opposed to removable USB.

    #55 2 years ago
  56. TD_Monstrous69

    To me, this looks just a little too prototyped to be anything final. But if this is where they’re going with the next controller, I say, it looks like a step in the right direction. Just a little under 5 days now.

    #56 2 years ago
  57. melonbuster1

    This is why they lose. They do things and don’t support them and copy other people’s moves. The answer to everything from Sony is more power. They better put a headset in the box and the fake Kinect cam they have if they want to compete. But they won’t. The system one controller and a demo disc. The 720 will come with the system hdmi cables Kinect 2.0 one controller the new xbox live a 48hr pass and be $50 cheaper than the ps4! !! Sony loses again!

    Is it a screen (we all know what a screen is), or a pad (like on the back of the Vita, only used for touch)?

    #64 2 years ago
  65. Patrick Garratt

    It’s a pad, not a screen. It like the Vita’s back trackpad. It’s just used for movement, not display.

    #65 2 years ago
  66. DrDamn

    Touchpad is too small to be useful I think. Unless there is a way of illumination or display beneath it then I’m a bit perplexed as to what it can add. If they could light it up – even in a basic way underneath then you could use it for hot keys etc. Otherwise it’s just a bit of an oddity. PS4′s sixaxis. You’d also think they might try and match the aspect ratio of the screen?

    Shape looks like they’ve modified and smoothed things out – actually looks quite nice. I don’t mind the stick placement and it looks like they’ve addressed the convex-ness of the stick (and allegedly the crappy triggers). So evolution in shape rather than revolution.

    The light on the front for Move functionality is probably the more interesting part – quite a lot they can do with that I reckon.

    Some people have mentioned a line indicating a detachable left hand side but I’m just not seeing it.

    #66 2 years ago
  67. DrDamn

    If the silver box is the PS4 devkit, left and right hand sides have covered elements – are these the dual cameras for Move functionality?

  71. Dragon246

    Wait, so this controller contains -
    Rumble+sixaxis+touchpad+move(from the light on the front)+speaker/microphone
    Very interesting and I am a bit surprised that were able to cramp all that in there.
    Although lets see how this pans out games wise.

    #71 2 years ago
  72. DrDamn

    @71
    Sixaxis could be done through just the Move light potentially. Move currently uses coloured balls from which the camera image is analysed and size and position of the controller (including distance) can be determined. The accuracy is gained through a combination of gyroscopes, accelerometers and the image analysis. If the image quality was better and given the light shape is now a rectangle not a sphere you could get a lot more info from just that. Angle, tilt, distance. The sixaxis functionality is all there, with the caveat that the camera needs a good view of the light.

    @72,
    Yeah I know that. But how useful all this feature cramming will be remains to be seen.
    This seems costly.

    Another thing they won’t support. .why? Because they know you buy the logo. The brand is what you care about. Sony people buy Sony products even though they don’t lead the market in anything. . T.v ,handheld, blurays, computers anything. They just aren’t good. But you express this fandom. Last place again.

    This is basically confirmation of the rumour of a bundled Kinect-alike isn’t it?

    Looks like a positive step for the controller. Much more 360-like proportions, improvements on the awful DS analog sticks, hopefully usable triggers this time round. More 360-like in general, apart from the left stick is still in the wrong place.

    Touchpad seems a bit useless though.

    Good riddance to the current DS design. It’s only 7 years overdue.

    Looks to be the work of a company that truly has run out of ideas. Looks pig-ugly too.

    What it looks like is a prototype. Lets leave it at that until they reveal the final product, shall we?

    It looks more and more like a fake to me. Atleast I hope it’s a fake :/

    I still don’t like the thumbstick placement, and I think it’s an ugly controller, but I do think it will be better than the current DS.

    Perhaps even enough for me to use it :)

    @80. Sorry, but it’s real.

    Also interesting …

    http://www.abload.de/img/ds4kiun3.gif

    I’d say this one might be fake but it must have been done quickly as it includes a lot of elements from the other leaked pics. Including positioning of start/select. Prefer other leaked pics, but like this functionality of basic display – all it needs to become a lot more useful.

  84. GwynbleiddiuM

    @83 I think the touch pad on the controller would be something similar to that and of Razer’s switchblade. The start and select will be on the touch pad.

    On the more confirmed shots there are flush buttons at those points too, on both sides.

  86. manamana

    @82 good to know. I actually think that the thumbs might rest a bit better on this controller. And due to the matte bulkyness might be even better to hold than the flimsy PS3 controller.

  87. Eddie Rodrigues

    They fixed the D-pad, yet everything else looks fugly and uncomfortable… If I can use the PSVita as a controller then no worries

  88. ManuOtaku

    I do also think this is not the final desing, therefore i will reserve my judgement waiting for the final one, although i might say it looks promising, if this is the early desings, it did improved a lot of things, especially that horrendous trigers.
