Rumor: PlayStation 4 Dev Kit Leaked

on February 14, 2013 5:27 PM

Destructoid has gotten its hands on a picture that looks to be a PlayStation 4 developers kit and a PlayStation 4 controller. As rumors have suggested, the controller appears to have a touch pad on the top of the controller with several tweaks made to the analog sticks and buttons for the controller.

The PS, Start, and Select buttons have also been relocated and are no longer in their usual spot. There is a light at the top of the controller that isĀ reminiscentĀ of the PlayStation Move light and a button to the left of the touch pad that might be the share button talked about. A speaker and microphone jack appear below the touch pad.

Remember this is just a prototype and most likely not the final design for the controller. It seems Sony plans on keeping the controller as close to the DualShock controller while introducing new features to make use of in games. With the reveal of the next PlayStation only six days away, soon everyone will have some answers to their questions and find out which rumors are true and the ones that are not.
