Weird


[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!

So, the Xbox One won an Emmy

Microsoft winning an Emmy for the Xbox One has set me on a path to learning more about these awards than I've ever cared to. Forget about the Primetime Emmys (surprisingly easy, right?) -- this goes deeper. The National Acade...more
