Much of that can be read via this previous post.

Gamepad Controller surfaces

While some debate continues on the viability of that alleged PS4 Slim, a new leak may have just raised the stakes even more. Thanks to a Twitter user with the handle ‘shortman82’ shots of a possible game controller have surfaced online.

Among the notable features of the said PS4 Slim gamepad include a front-facing light bar placed just above the touchpad. The light bar will likely function the same that old controller light notifications did, only that it will be seen better.

Shortman82” adds that the controller will use the same battery as the previous controllers though he claims it lasts longer. Another interesting feature is that the when the controller is plugged into the main PS4 Slim game console, communication can only be made through wired means.

The claim is similar to that of the previous controller settings when plugged in. Eurogamer confirmed that the PS4 Slim controller is indeed real, adding another mix to the puzzle of a PS4 Slim debut. From the looks of it, there will indeed be two game consoles presented in New York, the PS4 Slim, and the PS4 Neo.
