Who knows how this happened, but if this is real, hell must have frozen over. Scroll down and look at the controller over the box art.

If that's legit, looks like they're redesigning to more closely mimic the X360 controller layout - which would not be a bad thing IMO.

I'm calling it fake at this point. Look at the close-up on Kotaku and you'll see the PS logo/button is smakc dab between start and select. On the current SIXAXIS, it's significantly below them. That means the overall body of the controller would have to be quite a bit shorter.

I guess it doesn't make a lot of sese to change the config of a controller that the PlayStation faithful have been comfortable with now for more than a decade. But for me it was tough to use the Sixaxis after more than a year of falling in love with the X360 controller - to my mind the best gamepad ever designed.

It's old and probably fake, but I would much prefer the Analog stick in that place, never really got on with Dual Shock since it was created back in the PS1 days.

It can't possibly be real. The big cross formation where the D-Pad was is still there and looks completely awkward. The D-Pad has absolutely no space in the little circle.

I dont think they are in competition with Fisher-Price or Hasbro though... Unless your trying to say that is an imitation of the Wii controller?

Edit: Hmm, i just rememebr that sony game .. so i guess that what you were implying.

they ought to keep it the way it is. the left analog works equally well in either position. the d-pad becomes difficult to use in the secondary position.

too bad the d-pad sucks on the x360 controller and the lack of analog face buttons. Other than that it is awesome.

Sony debuted the same controllers this year for some quiz game. What the heck actually came first? It seemed like the two ideas debuted almost simultaneously.

Hold the controller pressed against the base of your fingers, not the palms. When you do that, the left analog stick is ergonomically placed.

Problem solved.
