Sony PS4 Controller Concept Design by Pen-Tacular-Artist Sony PS4 Controller Concept Design by Pen-Tacular-Artist
I am an avid gamer and love everything sony, especially the PS3. So a few weeks ago Sony asked for written ideas for a new controller for the upcoming PS4.

So i thought i would go one step further and redesign the classic playstation controller. Because as much as i love the classic PS3 controller, there are a quite a few things that annoy me, and it's now time for a redesign and overhaul.

So over the years i have customised my PS3 controller to suit my gaming needs. And in the process i have spent 30 - 40 customiseing it with triggers, thumb sticks, grip pads etc and a click on keyboard.

So my new design is rooted as much as i could in reality. And has incoorporated the triggers, thumb stick, grip pads and keypad into the new controller from the get go.



The drawing is on an A2 sheet of card. And the controller design concept was done in magic markers and rotring ink pens.

To be honest I find it too similar to xbox360 and mobile based keyboard only with ps buttons.

And i also find ps4 controller better designed than yours but other than that it's really handy and creative.

cool design, but It would be very unhandy.

I like your PS4 controller design, very creative. But like what the others say, the body looks too much like the xbox controller, only difference is that it has the PS button layout on it. But anyways, great idea and love idea of the hidden text pad, very handy.

i like the hidden keypad, very clever. though.. the controllers overall shape reminds me of an Xbox controler, as such im pretty sure Sony wont be able to use it in its exact current state.

Thanks alot, yeah i know sony wouldn't want to look like there copying the xbox. But it could be reshaped slightly to give it a more unique look.

But its ok to copy the Nintendo Wii to make the PS Move? OR like what Microsoft is doing with the WiiU and making the Xbox Smartglass I think its called.(Knows I'm starting a war here, but feels its a point to be proven.)

Haven't you heard how dumb gamers are being these days? They will probably petition that too.
