The lights are on
A new shot of the supposed controller has been released over at All Games Beta.
We're just six days from Sony's big press event, which means we may be less than a week from our first official look at the new PlayStation. Predictably, rumors have been flying in recent days. One such rumor from Destructoid involves the picture you see above. It's been making the rounds online, with some claiming that it's the new console's controller.
It looks like a touch screen has been put in place of the traditional start and select buttons, but it's a bit too small to offer gameplay on the level of an iPad or Wii U GamePad. If this image is legit, it'll be interesting to see what the screen is used for.
Hopefully, we'll get some concrete answers next Wednesday. What do you think...is it for real?

Hmm. I mean the overall look of the controller is pretty much the same I just don't get why they have the touchpad on there in the first place (there are also little speaker holes below it). In a 2nd look, that d-pad, looks HORRIBLE. I know the Dualshock 2 or whatever has a terrific d-pad, but that just looks as bad as the 360 d-pad. This image probably isn't even legit.
So let me get this straight. They add in a touch screen, almost the size of a few buttons, just so they can have a virtual button...
Sure, ok... Slowly backing away now.
