PS4 controller and dev unit leak in new image

If you have been wondering what the PS4 developer kit looked like, wonder no more as an image of the device has finally hit the web.

As you can see in the image above, you can see what is supposedly the new PlayStation controller for the PS4 as well as what is being called an Orbis developers unit too.

The controller has received slight modification to the analog sticks from the PS3 and there appears to be a display at the top of the controller.  The controller is certainly an evolution of the controllers that Sony has been using since the PS1 was released many years ago.

The controller is supposedly a prototype (no surprise here) and may not be representative of the final product. But, seeing how the device is very similar to that of the PS3, we would expect it to retain a similar form but know that modifications may occur before launch.

It’s worth noting that this is a developer unit for the PS4 and represents new technology that will obviously be streamlined and placed into a smaller package when it hits retails shelves.

The PS4 is rumored to be unveiled at the February 20th Sony event which is only a few days away. Seeing as Microsoft and Sony will be pushing their next gen devices up until they launch at a point closer to the holiday shopping season, the console wars are about to kick-off, full-swing.
