Thats pretty much what the ps3 controller could do at launch. Not alot of games bothered with it and the ones that did felt forced.


The problem was that it never worked as intended because it was far too imprecise. This is how it should have been.

Well it's wider and thicker by the looks of that pic so that should satisfy all the bear pawed folk at least :P.

Would've been nice to see if they had remodelled the triggers.

Hopefully it's just a prototype at this point because it's a bit of a dog to be completely honest about it.

I saw this mock-up the other day and thought it looked quite good. It seems they got it pretty close if this is real.

Again this looks like its designed for small hands to me. I have enough trouble using the buttons on my galaxy s3 so imagine how a full qwerty keyboard will be on that. Will probably have to come with one of those pen things. Also the thumb sticks are the same. I won't judge until I have tried it though. Looking forward to the 20th.

That touchpad looks ridiculous.

But on closer inspection, it could be just the right size to lay a chocolate bourbon on.

A pad will never be this good again.

They said it's a touch PAD not a touch screen.

Looks fake if you ask me.

I'll wait before making comment.

Which one? The mock up that Mister Licker posted saying it bore more than a passing resemblance to the one in the article or the bong that resembles a dildo?

Looks like a prototype to me (if it's not a fake) and there's supposedly a few prototypes floating around if CVG's rumours are true.

No-one actually thinks this is the finished product do they? Hell it doesn't even say Sony on it at this point.

Its obviously a prototype, and the finished product will look just as different to the dev kit sat in the background (i'm assuming thats a dev kit)
I hope the rumor is true that you can still use your old dualshocks on the new system. Never saw a problem with having a choice of two sized controllers.
Sony should have just made a slightly chunkier controller this gen for all those complaining, although there are 3rd party 360 style controllers out there anyhow.

OMG what's that it's plugged into?? Is that what's the PS4 is going to look like?? No, it's just a dev kit. In all likelihood this controller is just the prototype they made to send out with the kits, before the design for the actual controller had been finalised. Surely the real thing won't look like this.

I'm less worried about appearance than I am with design. If it is front mounted or on the underside of a standard DS3 pad I don't think I could comfortably use it.

Interesting thing I get from this prototype pad is that the console will be black.

Which is good news indeedy. I want them to continue the world-class design of these:

One thing they are unbeatable at on their day is design.
