Back in December of 2015, Destructoid reported on a Nintendo patent for a game console controller, which many assumed to be for the upcoming NX hardware Nintendo has been teasing.

According to a post by Alexander Maier over at Dual Pixels, what follows is a leaked image of the NX controller, which matches the patent we previously reported on. The image was apparently provided to Maier by a new source, going by the name Idriss2Dev.

The first thing I did when we saw this image was run it through a program often used to tell if an image has been Photoshopped, based on highlighting aspects of an image that will be inconsistent in Photoshops.

While the image shows evidence of multiple times being saved over, this could be explained by the presence of the large black rectangle and date stamp on the image. It looks otherwise consistent, leading us to suspect that the image has not been Photoshopped significantly.

However, there are seeming inconsistencies with the lighting sources in the image, which mean this should still be taken with a decently sized grain of salt.

It is important to note that if this is development hardware, it may vary from the retail version of the controller. There may still be time to remove what appears to be touch screen buttons on this design.

So, what do you think of the design? I think with all these alleged leaks happening, the time for Nintendo to formally reveal the console has to come as soon as possible.

oh SHIT

lock if old

The original source of this is Idriss2Dev on Reddit, who appears to express some doubt about it:









Rösti weighs in:



(Translation from Hex to Ascii: ".desopxe neeb TON evah dluohs sihT", or read backwards: "This should have NOT been exposed.")

The origin of the image on the screen is found to be an Unreal Engine 4 tech demo:



Comparisons made showing that it is a perfect crop:





Rösti clarifies further:




I think that's mostly it?

That does look like that one patent, but that could also be inspiration for a fake.

Looks a lot like the patent, but it has the ring of truth to it- that screen's not something you can easily mock up.

I'd be surprised if the consumer product looked like this, but as a dev thing? Yeah, I can see it.

Looks like someone looked at the patents for the controller and tried to recreate it.

From the creators of the PS3 banana dualshock, we wring you... the NX edgeless croissant. This looks ugly and uncomfortable, I hope this isn't real. Not even for the handheld version.
