PlayStation’s all-new PS5 controller revealed

The wait for the big PlayStation 5 reveal has been a long one. While a lot of people in Qatar are wondering when we’ll get a sneak peek, seeing as it’s set to release in 2020, we now get a look at the controller.

The PS5 controller has finally been revealed, and its set to build on the success of the DualShock 4, while also adding new functionality and refining the design. Needless to say, it looks swanky.

Revealed on PlayStation Blog, the ‘DualSense’ wireless controller is meant to “heighten that feeling of immersion” using haptic feedback. Think feeling the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud, as PlayStation puts it.

There’s also adaptive triggers used for the L2 and R2 buttons, so gamers can feel like they’re drawing a bow to shoot an arrow.

As for design, along with changing the angle of triggers and updates of grip, the DualSense will have a longer battery life compared to the DualShock 4. And, there’s no longer a ‘Share’ button, but instead a ‘Create’ button. Intriguing.

The DualSense also adds a built-in microphone, so you won’t need a headset to chat in-game.

The two-tones of colour? Quite the shift of PlayStation, and it could signal what we can expect for the design of the actual console. Only time will.

“DualSense marks a radical departure from our previous controller offerings and captures just how strongly we feel about making a generational leap with PS5,” said President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment Jim Ryan

“The new controller, along with the many innovative features in PS5, will be transformative for games – continuing our mission at PlayStation to push the boundaries of play, now and in the future.”
