RUMOR: More PlayStation 4 Controller Details Surface

Posted on February 13, 2013 AT 08:07am

Fresh rumors regarding the PlayStation 4′s controller have appeared online, contradicting earlier reports.

VG247 is reporting that the controller is “more or less” the same shape as the PlayStation 3 DualShock, however, the start and select buttons have now been moved up to accommodate a front touchpad. The site also claims that it has been informed by sources that the L2 and R2 shoulder buttons have been remodeled and the previously reported “share” button doesn’t exist.

This contradicts Edge’s recent report on the controller which claims: “A new Share button on the controller will, when pressed, launch a new feature that will allow screenshots and video to be distributed online. The PS4 hardware will continually record the most recent 15 minutes of onscreen action (with no processing penalty, claims our source), which users will then be able to edit and broadcast via the Internet.”

Hopefully all these rumors can be sorted out on February 20–if that really is when Sony plans to unveil its new console.
