Outside of the main specs, much of the PlayStation 5 console remains shrouded in mystery. We know it’s still due out as part of the holiday 2020 season (hopefully), but we haven’t seen the system itself yet. To get us a little closer to the reveal, Sony shared the final design of the new PS5 controller, which has been dubbed the DualSense.
Pictured above, the DualSense aims to combine with PS5’s Tempest 3D AudioTech to make for more immersive game experiences, keeping a lot of what made the PS4 controller work while adding in more feedback. This includes haptic feedback for varying sensations while you play, as well as adaptive triggers for the L2 and R2 buttons, which will change in response depending on the type of action you’re performing.
The Share button has been replaced with a Create button, which keeps the same functionality while adding more ways for players to save content or share it with others. More details will come for that aspect later.
The light bar has been moved to either side of the touch pad, and there’s a built-in microphone array to let players engage in quick chats with friends without the need for a headset.
Stay tuned for more on PS5 as it develops.
