[Update 2: A second photo reveals that the bottom jack may be a headphone/audio port.]

[Update: Multiple sources have confirmed that the photo is real, but is an early prototype.]

Remember when we told you of rumblings on the next PlayStation system's controller and how it might have a touchscreen? Well, get a look at this strange thing. This image looks like a PlayStation-style controller plugged into something that looks like a development kit. 

It does look like a touchscreen has been worked into the middle of the controller. What's that thing on the top? Also, get a load of those analog sticks. They look like belly buttons. Gross!

Apparently they've tried out several versions of controllers for whatever this next game system is; it's possible that this is one of them. 

There's a chance we'll know more next week at Sony's big reveal of...something in New York. 

I like the touchscreen thing (if that's what it is), but I was kind of hoping that this is fake so I don't have to think any harder about what the blue light is for. Don't say it!
