PS4 Elite Controller spotted for pre-order

An Elite PS4 controller has been spotted on U.S site Target, although it is not manufacturer by Sony, but rather a third party.

The controller looks like a cross between the Xbox One Elite and a DualShock 4 and may not be to everyone's taste, still it's an Elite controller all the same.

It's hard to know if Sony is planning to release its own Elite controller, as since Microsoft released a Xbox version there have been calls for one. Perhaps there's a chance? Or maybe not.

Would you like Sony to release it's own PS4 Elite controller?

I would LOVE to see an elite controller from Sony. Preferably one that allows me to re-map the L3 & R3 buttons, since those ones seem to always die after a year. So yes, please bring out a new controller that gives us a bit more freedom on the button layout.

This does not surprise me, the Xbox elite controller is manufactured by a third party as well, not Microsoft, this looks like it could be the same company. Let's hope so.

Microsoft's is Xbox branded though, this one seems to be third party, unless of course it's just a placeholder image.

The Xbox one isn't made by a third party at all. They spent lots of money in R&D on that elite pad. This one isn't made by the same 3rd party company because there wasn't a third party company. Also thi REQss is £63 not £120......use your brains people haha

Sony would not do this as it is too identical in design and name as the Xbox ONE one. There could be lawsuits. Sony would call it the controller plus or something.

the analogues on the pic are different to the analogues on the box . . but to be honest this is quite obviously just made up as Sony would well have a lawsuit on their hands

Nothing will ever be elite about putting your analogue sticks in those stupid positions.

Did you read the back of it? "Compatible with Xbox Elite controller accessories for use with the playstation 4" - Yeah, I cna't see Sony having anything to do with this haha. It's just like a Madcatz controller - it will be poor quality and I didn't even think you could get 3rd party with the light and touchpad? I've not seen any. Plus they have been making 'elite' controllers for years - even add ons to your existing pads.

Stuff like this - that were around before the Elite pad which MS took inspiration from: https://eu.scufgaming.com/infinity4ps/

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
