Remember when the PS3 controller prototype was a big boomerang? Good times.

I don't get why everyone's bitching. First of all, as stated above, it's just a pre-release. Second, if the final design is, in fact, larger than the traditional Playstation controllers, everybody will get used to it, just in the same way everybody got used to the Wii's TV remote-like design. This isn't something to cry a river over.

Maybe if we're lucky, our PS4 will look something like what the remote is plugged into? Looool.
No that is a developer console unit. They have a similar console for the Vita and the PSP at my work.

im sure they will reduce the size but if i was them id try out no analog(bastfamy) and use touch for the analog with a back touch for touch stuff

Am I crazy, or does the left handle of the controller (in both pictures) look bigger than the right? What kind of sense does that make?

Not only that, but I can't see any practical use for such a small screen. In other words, I don't really see how it's a necessary or useful addition.

Anyway, I'm more curious than concerned at the moment, especially since I think both photos are just of preliminary models.

If the controller's a bag of dicks I'm sure they'll recognize it and make changes accordingly.

I didn't even pay too much mind for the picture since it'll look different when done but the touchscreen was already a known to happen and just noticed the speakers thanks to prev post. :/
when both systems come out just going to have to do a pro-con list and touchscreen on my controller is a bit of a con.

I think the second image is an updated version of the controller. The most noticeable difference is the sharp angle right above the "Share" button that's on the first controller, but not the second.

Hmm. I'll definitely say I was hoping it would look more like a DualShock, but I don't mind the new design.

This second picture looks like a final version of the controller to me.

lmao good job bluexy. Kinect spies on you, now Sony have made their controller call the police if you insert a used game.

WHAT THE *bleep* IS THAT?! Didn't Sony say that it's pretty much the same as the DS3 just updated and with slight differences, just like with DS2 to DS3. That thing looks fake.

Don't really like the change to be honest. I certainly hope that it changes to a the usual Dual Shock shape that's worked for the last, what, 15-16 years?

I like the prototype myself. A somewhat bigger, somewhat bulkier PS controller could be nice.
