It's seems like cheap china gamepad ripoff. I hope for production it will have another look.

Yeah it looks like the middle ground between 360's and dualshock 3 for me. It'll fill out the hands nicely this time.

I wonder if they're going to give it a new name or DS4

Bulky, and while I like the Vita's D-Pad, I like the original dual-shock one more. I doubt this is the final design so I'll hold my breath til the 20th. I'm just happy the PS4 is finally here *cries*

I wouldn't put much faith in that this is the final controller design i.e. it's a prototype

Triggers look significantly pushed back - see the ledge where the dpad and face buttons are before you get to L1/R1. Wonder if that means they are tucking L2/R2 further around the back, like with the WiiU gamepad, or move?

I like the LED strip, being a rectangle should make it able to know when it is level, and twisting.

Its just a prototype. Not going to have the same build quality as the final version. Probably not the exact same design either, the article says its one several types.

Sony has no shame. Are they really going to try to sell screens on controllers having seen Nintendo innovate that approach with the WiiU? Ripping off rumble from the N64 controller, motion controls with the Sixaxis, and now SCREENS with this unnamed PS4 controller, I have never been more disappointed. Can they not come up with an innovative idea for once in their companies lives? At least with the Vita they at least tried to innovate with rear touch panel capabilities, but this is just getting ridiculous. Sony I sincerely hope you change your plans while you have the time. Maybe then will I consider dropping money on this travesty.

I really don't think that's a mic. I reckon it's a speaker grille. It's way too large to be a mic and the placement means all anyone would hear would be clacking analogue sticks.

It looks based off the Vita's d-pad which might be the greatest d-pad of any controller.

Who needs Kinect for voice commands when you got it right there on the controller, whether you want to wear a headset or not. Win win win if that's how it works.

The camera will pick up the LED for positioning and depth purposes, there's probably still a gyro in there, and the touch pad replaces the need for a pointer.

It's.... It's not a screen on the controller. It's just a touch digitizer

iOS/Android ports, UI navigation, web browsing, context sensitive cutscenes/minigames, etc. It's a touchpad just like a smartphone. It's not hard to imagine why it would be useful.

That fan-pic is still the best out there from what I've seen. Sony should just blatantly copy it and call it a day.

I can't tell if this is sarcasm or a case of not reading the OP. It's pretty stupid either way.

Assuming build quality is not-final, It looks pretty decent.

Not sure how useful that touchpad is going to be in practice though.

I couldn't agree more. The leaked one just doesn't look appealing to me at all. Looks bulky and clunky.

It also looks like the square/triangle/etc buttons are smaller and further apart from each other than previous controllers?

Do you not understand what a screen is? Because the PS4's controller doesn't have one.

Wow I think that looks pretty damn good, the D-pad looks EXCELLENT and Im assuming the L2/R2 triggers will be made similar to Real Triggers. No doubt it will be tweaked here and there before launch to perfection.
