It'll probably make more sense when we get a side/back view of the controller and see what the handles look like.

I love it, wish I could see the triggers, but based on that - assuming it's real of course - looks like a good evolution of the DS3.

Hope that's the one they use, best case scenario right there, slightly curved, better d-pad and symmetrical sticks.

Headphone jack?

What are the little squares on both sides of the touch pad?

The touch pad does look small too.

So when I toss my controller across the room after playing Lair 2, there's the potential for my plugged in headphones to go with them? I'll take 2, Sony.

Good job by the artist renditions that came close to this devkit edition.

the handles look wider! yes!! the ds3 has the worst handle grips out of the 360 pad, ds3, and wii u pro.

it looks like they are improving the ergonomics of the controller while keep true to the ds layout. not bad.

Same here. A slightly evolved Dualshock is all I wanted and that is what they are doing. If you want an Xbox controller... go play on the Xbox. This is a Playstation.

I hope it's bigger than current PS3 controller. That thing is cramp inducing. Was hoping for the sticks to be offset, like the 360, but I knew it would be wishful thinking :(

Yeah, they look worse, not better.

And fixing the awful L2 and R2 buttons is the most important thing.

They look closer to the buttons than the current controller if anything, moved further back but I was hoping for that. L2 & R2 are a mystery, would be nice to see the back of it.

I like the prototype better than the mock-up. That's simply because I would still smash my thumbs together on the mock-up but not on the prototype.

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

It's a development unit.

Agree. Only because if its a mic then you'd think audio would come out somewhere too.
I think there is a mic but more discrete.

This particular prototype does look wider than the DS3, so there's that.

Of course but anonymity is key as this is a friend so......

Also

Triggers feel perfect and it feels good in your hands. This is his own opinion. Either way, it's sounding good to me.

Sorry but this info I have had for months so I'm just sort of confirming that the thing is real and it's a prototype.

I dunno, it looks like they're deeper and probably have a hand-friendly shape to them now instead of being kinda-conical like the current ones.

Something like this.

Who cares if it's a prototype? It doesn't make it look any better. Can I respond to every post praising it and say it's just a prototype? Come on, the negative opinions are still valid.

That said, I think it looks great. The Vita D-Pad is probably the best I've ever used, so I hope it's similar in practice.

Things to note - this very likely isn't a final design even if it represents final functionality. Sony has been experimenting with various prototypes, apparently.

edit - a brightened view via Beermeister


yum.


I know the dev kit is no way indicative of the final product but what if the ps4 followed the design cues of the ps2?

For me that would be a step backwards. The OG PS3 was a sexy beast of a machine. Shame it didn't come in matt.

It's a lot nicer than the DS3, looks heftier (good thing), nice dpad, analog sticks are concaved (but they're not?), and hopefully the triggers are more 360-like.

Still would rather have asymettrical analogs, but this is a step in the right direction.

The choice of a rectangular shape for the blue thing is... surprising. If it is supposed to be tracked by a camera like the move spheres, it's not the more convenient shape, it would have been easier to have a small LED at each corner of the rectangle, instead of the whole rectangle.
