Sony PS4 controller: Is this how the final design will look?

Two leaked photos claiming to be of prototype controllers for the soon-to-be unleashed Sony PS4 have emerged, but may not represent the final design. Here's CVG's best guess as to what will be...

The Sony PS4 console - set to be revealed in less than a week - will pack a controller which looks like the render above, according to the best estimates of our sister site CVG.

The legendary games title has pieced together information from its insider sources, and considered the leaked prototype photos that have popped up in recent weeks, in order come up with what it thinks may be the final design taking the stage on February 20th.

The site says that: "a combination of motion control, touch and traditional analogue buttons promise to make Sony's latest joypad a very special prospect indeed."

The prototypes have suggested that the controller will have a PlayStation Move-like LED sensor across the top of the controller, as well as a touch pad (not a touch screen) in the centre of the peripheral, something that CVG's discussions with developers, who also say the touch pad will be clickable, has backed up.

The site also says that the touch pad will unlock the ability for PS4 games to be streamed to mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, while also allowing for touch-dedicated games to become available through the PSN.

Meanwhile, in the leaked photos the D-Pad and the analogue sticks have been re-modelled, and the sites sources believe these features will also appear in the commercial kit.
