W e are still not sure when Sony will officially unveil the PlayStation 5, though there are reports that favor the 2020 holiday launch time for the Gaming console. That notwithstanding, the Sony PlayStation arm has just revealed the DualSense controller for the upcoming PS 5 controller.
Sony via a tweet late Tuesday announcing the DualSense controller says it is already in the process of shipping the controller to game developers so they can use its “unique features” in games ahead of the PS5 official debut. Notably, Sony says the new DualSense controller gets some new unique features that should make using the controller to feel more ‘immersive’.
Moving away from the solid black or off-white color seen on previous controllers, the new DualSense controller for the PS5 comes with a two-tone design sparking off speculations that the unannounced PS5 console itself might go with the design choice. The controller much like the dual shock for the PS4 comes with a built-in rechargeable battery and from the official release, the PS5 Dualsense controller will be retaining its high power battery cell without necessarily adding to its bulkiness.
Other than that, Sony says the Dualsense controller gets new adaptive triggers button with haptic feedback. Sony says it also changed the angle of the hand triggers to make the controller feel smaller than it is and updated the grip. Furthermore, the DualSense controller gets a built-in microphone that eliminates the need for a headset, as well as renaming the share button on the PS4 cotroller to the ‘Create’ button. This the firm says will offer “new ways for players to create epic gameplay content to share with the world.”
More details about the PS5 and the DualSense controller will be revealed in the months leading to the 2020 Holiday season release date, Sony said in the revealing tweet earlier on Tuesday.
