Or so it appears. Via Ashler in the VG247 thread.

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



edit 2 - infinityBCRT suggests looking at the black rectangles either side of the dev kit. Suggests they might be camera lenses, providing the functionality of the rumoured stereo depth camera?

Light emitter for PSEye(s) to detect.
My first thought is that the touchpad is way too small.
If that is the real thing then I doubt it's close to final design.

Hopefully the real controller is a bit less bulky looking than that. The top where the shoulder buttons are looks pretty bad.

As I said in the Vg247 thread, that thing is ugly as sin and looks uncomfortable as well. Those sticks....Ugh.

Paint it matt black and sell it me as is.

Not sure about the pad though, looks a bit... off. Is that a speaker grille under the touchpad?

Looks like an early version of the controller. Especially with the lack of Sony branding.

Looks unfinished.

Like a quick work in progress shell to see what devs think. I am sure that isnt the final design.


If they make it look a bit nicer I think I would be ok with that. More space between the sticks and bigger grips = me a happy boy.

Built-in speaker looks really out of place, but looks fine other than that. Concave analog sticks, finally.
