This is apparently the current PS4 controller. Emphasis on the word "current".

In the picture you see the normal Dualshock controller layout, plus a rectangular touchpad in the center, an unknown button the the top-right of the D-pad, a PS Move like light at the top, bigger and closer D-pad buttons, and no start/select button.

Unless the mystery button is a start/select button (doubt it), it's supposedly a "share" button.
