First Picture of a Packaged PS4’s PlayStation Camera Confirms that it’s Out in the Wild as Well

on October 23, 2013 1:28 PM

Yesterday we posted the very first pictures of a packaged DualShock 4, and confirmed that at least some GameStop/EB Games shops in Canada are already selling the controller to their customers before the official release of the PS4.

Today the same Twitter user that posted the first picture (Sargon Aodisho)¬†of the Dualshock 4 controllers did it again, this time with the first picture of a packaged PlayStation Camera, that you can see above. The fact that the item hails from Canada is again demonstrated by the bilingual wording “For/Pour PS4” on the bottom right.

This time around, though, it’s unlikely that we’ll see the camera used on PC or PS3. While the connector uses USB 3.0 technology, the shape is proprietary and different from a normal USB connector.

That said, if you live in Canada and want a rather pricey paperweight (at least until the release of the console), or you think you’re crafty enough to modify that connector to make it work (I would not advise it, but hey, it’s your money), you can try and call your local GameStop/EB Games store and see if you can get your hands on one.

As a partly related bonus, below you can see the rather fetching PS4 setup at a Canadian Futureshop store, tweeted by the retail chain’s official account itself. Can you feel that next gen vibe?
