Sony's mysterious PlayStation event is nearingâ€”just two days nowâ€”and although details of the new console remain sketchy, corroborating images of what appears to be a new PlayStation controller have surfaced.
Destructoid's leaked PS4 controller
It's a case of evolution and not revolution, with the biggest change being made to the start and select keysâ€”they're gone. In their place appears to be a touchpad, which would see users navigate the Internet from their PlayStation in a similar fashion to a notebook's trackpad.
Beneath the touchpad is a grille, presumably housing a microphone you can use to chat with other online gamers. At the base of the controller is a 3.5mm headphone port. Okay, so this isn't revolutionary, but it makes a lot more sense plugging your headphones into your remote than having them shackle you to the metre away TV.
Glowing atop the remote is a blue light. It's not known what its purpose is; however, Pocket-lint suggests there's a little PlayStation Move to the blue light, its glow bringing to mind Sony's motion controller.
