First Pictures of Actual Boxed DualShock 4 PS4 Controllers Show that They’re Out in the Wild

Looks like PS4 accessories are starting to be delivered, at least in Canada. Before today all you saw of the new DualShock 4 controllers in their packaging were mock up pictures, but at last you get to see the real deal. (PS4)

Update edit: Added a third picture. As an interesting note the one that tweeted it mentions that those that preordered PS4 accessories at GameStop Canada can actually pick them up now if their local shop has inventory available. Of course treat this as an unconfirmed rumor, but if you have a preorder there, you may want to give them a call.

edit 2: further reports are surfacing that at least some GameStop/EB Games in Canada are letting those that preordered the controller bring it home.

edit 3: apparently some EB Games stores don't even require a preorder to sell the controller.

edit 4: added unboxing video.

This is cool, especially after the news that it can be used on a PS3 when hooked up via usb and works on the PC.

I can't wait to play this console. I've been checking my local Future Shop for the last week but still no demo stations are up :( Canada seems to always be behind the curve!! We were "supposed" to get them a couple days ago but they aren't here in Saskatchewan yet

Agreed, gives it a much smoother vibe than the red waves at the beginning of the ps3

Dont worry if you look at a side by side of the two you will see how much larger the DS4 is
Klad  +   307d ago
i'm sure they won't. I've played on the PS4. The controller is very comfortable. more than than the PS3 controller.
NexGen  +   308d ago
Wow, amazing. A boxed controller.
fattyuk  +   308d ago
Your userid is NEXGEN

I would of thought an article like this would be right up your street
NexGen  +   308d ago
I play the games, not a picture of a boxed controller! Of course I'm excited for next gen, but boxes and packaging have never excited me ever.

I don't care what color it is (the box), how it's wrapped, or if I can see pictures of a retail package. As always, I only give a poop about what's inside.

I hope my ps4 comes in a hot pink box with bows and ribbons and a plush unicorn...it's all going in the trash (the wrapping, not the ps4).
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   308d ago
dont know if im the only one out there, but id kill for these controllers to come in a fully enclosed box, with a sexy graphic of the product printed on the box itself. think "iphone style packaging". even the old ps2/ps3 original style packaging looked great.

either way, my god these have been the longest few weeks of my life. the need for nov 15th to be here already ruining my excitement for Halloween!

erick21093  +   308d ago
And have those sitting on the shelf with people putting their dirty little fingers on the analog sticks and buttons to the point that they would leave them dirty until one day you bought one ?

Hell Nah. plus, someone could easily screw up the remote itself pulling on the analog sticks or mashing the buttons while there.

..the second ACTUAL article I've read today by this author who ACTUALLY puts 'ACTUALLY' in the title. I don't know why, but it just made me laugh.
Abriael  +   308d ago
As opposed to "mock up"?

Mind you. There no "ActualLY" in either title :P
Dante81  +   308d ago
Lemme get one of those for ma PC right now, pretty please
Abriael  +   308d ago
You can. They're compatible with PC, at least for sticks and buttons. Yoshida confirmed that a while ago.

ZeroX9876  +   308d ago
didn`t know this! buying an extra 3 controllers when the occasion comes!

I`m hoping for a bluetooth support too, I could finally stop playing with the 360 controller and use my DS4 instead when playing on Steam.
Gster  +   308d ago
I'm thinkin about getting one for pc also, Will they come with the usb recharge cable do you know. Or will you have to buy the usb seperately
Abriael  +   308d ago
I'm pretty sure they don't come with their own cable.
Dante81  +   308d ago
It's microusb, so if you have one of those you are all set to connect to PC. We don't know yet if it works with bluetooth 2.1 but I'm hoping it does.
GentlemenRUs  +   308d ago
I don't know if this is correct but any standard mini-usb cable will/should work ;)

Well, I do live in Italy, so i'm nicely positioned to know if he does :P

After all he's Brazillian, he might buy a bunch for relatively cheap (in Italy they're 399 euros, which is about 500 bucks), and send them in home :D

Well it's very much out in the wild, PS4 games are already showing up on Peoples Friends list on PSN. PS4 trophies are appearing on consumer PSN data bases. So I'm sure some are enjoying the console way ahead of schedule!

After Seeing the Killzone:Shadow Fall story trailer this morning I'm very content that with playing that at launch all the way through Feb.
SonyKong64  +   308d ago
the rich and the famous always get early, yet the peasants use a psychological state of denial to survive the feeling that might ensue had they acknowledged this truth.

the exact same principles apply to any false flag op like 9/11.

then to ad insult to injury, hackers get most of the blame for people having the games early.

most early torrent leaks come from privileged people that have been given the games well before hand.
Abriael  +   308d ago
Actually Gamestop is just letting people pick em up apparently, and not just the rich.

RugbyGod  +   308d ago
My pic is the third one over....they appeared to have tons in stock. They do not come with the USB. It states on the box that the cable comes with your ps4 console. You do not require a preorder and they will sell them to anybody as my local gamestop has confirmed. These crush the dual shock 3...way grip pier and thumbs are a bit further apart. Great design and I can't wait to use mine.
TechMech2  +   308d ago
I should enjoy the ds4 much more than the six axis. One of my biggest complaints with the ps3 was the lack of concave analog sticks.

ZeroX9876  +   308d ago
THIS!
you know that PS4 controller are likely to be plug and play on PC day one. which means it uses standards protocol. add this plus the PC USB Controller support for PS3, reason why the DS4 works on PS3.

My theory, and sure hoping it`s true :D
