VG247 rumor claims no Share button on PS4 controller

But the touch-pad and similar controller shape are go.

The PlayStation 4 controller will be “more or less” the same shape as the current DualShock 3 and include a front touch-pad in place of now-moved Start and Select buttons, according to a VG247 source.

This rumor has been previously reported by Kotaku and Edge, whose reports both mentioned a new “Share” button on the controller. According to VG247’s source, this button is non-existant.

The latest rumors suggest the console will come bundled with a “Dual Camera,” utilize Gaikai and have expanded social features, and launch at over $400.

PlayStation 4 is expected to be unveiled at PlayStation Meeting 2013 in New York City next Wednesday, February 20.
