Sony has been hard at work on the development of the PS5, which is shaping up to be a mighty device. A few details were also offered, but the new controller that will come to the console but the company strives to keep many aspects a secret.
The name of the new controller hasn’t comes, and Sony did not offer any renders, deciding to focus on the functionality of the new accessory. A new accessory was also announced for the DualShock 4. The accessory can be mounted on the rear of the controller, and it adds two additional buttons that can be customized. Some fans argue that these buttons will be a part of the upcoming controller.
An Italian graphic designed explored the patents that were filled by Sony in November and focused on one that included eight images of the new controller. The design is quite similar to that of the DualShock 4, and no buttons are visible on the back of the controller that is showcased in the renders.
PS5 Controller Revealed In New Renders
It appears that the controller could be a bit bulkier in comparison to the previous iteration. Sony has stated that it will include advanced haptic feedback components that can offer a superior experience during gameplay sessions. It will also come with a bigger battery and a high-quality speaker. These components may require additional space.
The haptic feedback will replace the aging rumble technology, which isn’t very immersive when some events take place. Haptic feedback can simulate touch, and it will allow the controller to generate vibrations and movements that mimic a realistic experience.
Another upgrade comes in the form of adaptive triggers. Developers will have the option to customize the resistance of the triggers according to their needs. It was also mentioned by some sources that the controller would be optimized for cloud gaming. The PS5 will be released towards the end of 2020.
