First Pictures of Actual Boxed DualShock 4 PS4 Controllers Show that they’re Out in the Wild (UPDATE)

on October 22, 2013 1:30 PM

Looks like PS4 accessories are starting to be delivered (or at least shipped). Before today all we saw of the new DualShock 4 controllers in their packaging were officia mock up pictures designed by Sony, but at last we get to see the real deal.

The two photos that you can see below, courtesy of Twitter users Sargon AodishoJakob Dahlgren,  TheRugbyGodGamerWahab, DavidAndrew and Marko Rabasovic show a batch of black PS4 controllers in all their packaged glory.

The French/English wording identifies them as hailing from cold Canada, so if you live in the country and want to check out some PS4 goodness, you may want to drop by your local store and beg the clerk to let you take a peek in the storage area.

You never know, he might even say yes, if you ask nicely.

UPDATE: Twitter user TheRugbyGodGamer (who tweeted the third picture below) mentioned that those that preordered PS4 accessories at GameStop Canada are permitted to pick them up if there’s inventory available. So if you are holding on one of said preorders and you want to actually hug your DualShock 4, you may want to give your local GameStop a call. Of course the report is unconfirmed, so do check before jumping in your car. If you manage to get yours, let us know in the comments.

UPDATE 2: further reports are surfacing that at last some GameStop/EB Games stores  in Canada is indeed letting people bring their preordered DualShock 4 home.

UPDATE 3: according to Twitter user David, his local EB Games store sold him the controller without even the requiring a preorder. 

UPDATE 4: added an unboxing video, courtesy of YouTube user 2pixelwide.
