PlayStation 4 controllers arriving at retail
Reddit users posts picture of DualShock 4 in the wild at an EB Games outlet in Canada ahead of PS4 launch next month.
The PlayStation 4 does not arrive until next month, but controllers for the system are already showing up at retailers. A Reddit user (via Polygon) posted an image of DualShock 4 units on display at an EB Games outlet in Canada.
It is not clear if the controllers are available to purchase. The EB Games website has DualShock 4 controllers available to preorder for $60, though they are not available for purchase at the moment.
Earlier this week, Sony explained how it arrived at the final version of the DualShock 4 players will get their hands on with the PS4 next month.
Product planning manager Toshimasa Aoki said Sony considered "drastically changing" the controller from previous DualShock designs and even experimented with a touchscreen for the input.
Sony also created DualShock prototypes with the analog sticks placed in a similar way to the Xbox 360 controller. Aoki said Sony received feedback saying players wanted this control setup, especially for shooters. However, that stick placement "just wouldn't work" because it would break players' muscle memory, Aoki said.
The PS4 launches in North America on November 15 and in Europe on November 29.
