The leaked picture was posted by Destructoid and shows the latest changes to the controller.
As we previously reported, the Start, Select and Share buttons have disappeared.
CNET notes that there is a perforated section in the center. This could point to an onboard speaker similar to the Nintendo Wiimote or a microphone that would support voice control.
In addition, the blue light that appears on the front may be an indicator that the PlayStation Move function is available.
Sony is expected to present its next console on February 20.
