The PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 Controller Has Arrived At Retail

DualShock4-Retail-Packaging

With the PlayStation 4 launch a mere 24 days away retailers are starting to receive their stockpiles of supplies. We reported earlier that PS4 demo kiosks are starting to turn up out in the wild, and now DualShock 4 Controllers have started trickling in.

My local GameStop has started shifting merchandise to set up the new in-line product displays and make room for the next generation. For example, the dedicated PlayStation Vita retail space is being axed and will be intermingled with PS4. Which is a theme that Sony is pushing at every turn. They want a Vita in every PlayStation 4 owner’s hand for cross-play the handy cross-play functionality, so it wouldn’t be wise to separate the devices in-store.

The packaging itself looks very similar to it’s predecessor (newer style of DualShock 3 packaging) with the blister packaging holding tight against the controller. There’s a few subtle differences like the obvious update to the PlayStation branding that came about with the announcement of the PS4. The Sony and PlayStation brands are no longer stacked on top of each other either, and the bottom of the package has a slightly different structure with the device name being split into two segments.

Why the hell is this news, you ask? Because this means **itshappening**. The PlayStation 4 will launch November 15th.
