According to Kotaku, this is a picture of a real deal PlayStation 4 controller. It looks as familiar as it does foreign, with a large screen in the middle of the controller. According to a document obtained by gaming media a few weeks ago, the controller has a touch pad similar to what you get with the PS Vita hardware currently to provide a similar user experience.
This picture comes on top of information we have already learned about the PS4, including much beefier specs, including an eight core processor, a Blu-Ray drive and 160GB of Hard Drive space. Also, a new approach to user accounts is being purported, with user accounts being tied to controllers and not to the system -- which would theoretically allow for trophies to be earned by four different PS Users in a single co-op game.
Regardless, we're going to know more about the PS4 next week, as Sony is set to announce the console and two games, including a racing game, on February 20.
