A brand new report concerning the controller that will be included with the PlayStation 4 has just appeared on the web, this time confirming previous rumors that the device includes a touchpad, much like the one on the PS Vita's rear side, not to mention revised L2 and R2 shoulder buttons.

The PlayStation 4 is expected to be revealed later this month, on February 20, at a special conference in New York City.

Until then, lots of new rumors have appeared online concerning both the actual PS4 and its various features, but also speculation concerning the controller of the console.

Now, VG247 has posted another report, confirming that the previously rumored touchpad is real and is located on the front of the device.

As a result, the Start and Select buttons have been moved, while the shoulder buttons (L2 and R2) have been remodeled.

The previously rumored Share button, however, is no longer present on the PlayStation 4 controller, so it's unclear if it actually exists.
