Mysterious Game Controller in NBA 2K17 Commerial - Nintendo NX Controller? [CLOSED]

So a commercial for NBA 2K17 went up. Nothing too strange about it on it's own, and it's a fairly nice commercial too.

However, at two points in the trailer, you can see the actors holding a video game controller that so far, nobody has found a match for, even among third party controllers, PC controllers, Android/iOS game pads, etc.

First image on it's own wouldn't mean much, but the second image gives a clearer look, and nobody has been able to find a match for it yet.

I just felt like sharing this, since it might interest some people. If you see a controller that is just like the one pictured here, then that would also debunk the rumour, but a lot of people speculate this must be the NX controller and possibly this commercial went out earlier than intended (since it's certain we will be seeing the NX officially very soon, no later than E3).

Here's the trailer these images come from too.

Could also be for that weird console from the company that funded something from Inafune(can't remember the name) but even sports games wouldn't go that low, right?

The controller looks... Normal, at the least. Looks like a Steam Controller or PS controller with a lot more silver.

Is it even a real controller, or just a prop?

I had the same question as well.

I'm making the assumption that it's a prop, as I'm sceptical that Nintendo would show the controller off so early, especially with E3 around the corner.

I think they didn't want to "pick a side" by using either a PS4/Xbone for the commercial and it's a generic one.

Well that's the thing, E3 is around the corner and the NX is likely to be revealed a bit in advance of E3 itself (with E3 itself focusing on the finer details of the system and the games it will have).

It's entirely possible that this commercial slipped out earlier than intended, since it's not made by Nintendo.

What's most curious to me is that the controller seems to have a touchpad - that's on oddly specific detail to have on a prop controller if it is just a generic prop, especially for a multi-plat game, since not even the PS4 version of this game would have much use for the touchpad. It also just so happens that some Nintendo patents for a new controller, have touchpads.

Did anyone else notice the black-and-red box under the TVs in both shots? NX console, or just stacked game cases or something else? Looks like one is glossy (and may be something entirely different, could be light filtering from a window behind) and the other's not so I'm probably stretching, just can't help but notice.

^Yeah, because it's in both shots, it must be there for a reason...

Looking at the black and red "box", if you zoom in on it, it appears to actually be Twi DVD/game cases stacked together.
