Canadian stores selling DualShock 4 controllers weeks before PS4 launch

The DualShock 4 controllers have been spotted on shelves in Canadian stores weeks before the console is being released.

Video game shops in Canada are selling DualShock 4 controllers for the PS4 weeks before the console is released.

The controller has been spotted on the shelves of EB Games in Montreal in Canada, selling for $60.

The EB Games website shows the controller available for pre-order, but does not say whether fans can pick up the DualShock controller early.

PSX Extreme spoke to in-store staff, who said that they are receiving shipments of the PS4 controllers early.

The gaming website also said that “the controllers are not street-dated so if you wanted to pick one up, you’re free to do that.”

The PlayStation 4 itself is not being released until November 29, but the DualShock 4 should work with the current PS3.

Sony’s product planning manager Toshimasa Aoki said they considered “drastically changing” the DualShock 4 controller from previous designs.

He revealed that they had experimented with a touchscreen input, as well as analog sticks similar to the Xbox 360 controller.

PlayStation 4 launches in the UK on 29th November.
