We got some exciting news for console lovers out there. Sony revealed the design of the new wireless controller for PlayStation 5. So far, it amassed great reviews. The release is expected with the release of the PlayStation 5 sometime later this year.
We can see a lot of new features and improvements for this controller. There was a lot of positive feedback and new ideas with the PS 4 wireless controller, so they used the of them to make the design for the newest one. Several leaks could be found on the web and were confirmed—for example, the adaptive shoulder button. Additionally, a new built-in Microphone so there is no need to use your headset or table microphone when you play online games.
LED Lightbar was moved too to the top of the PlayStation 5 controller. There is a new button, also. It’s called “Create” and it replaces the “Share” button that we could have found on the earlier PS4 wireless controller. Even Pete Hines, senior vice president of global marketing at Bethesda, twisted about his experience so far at trying this new controller.
Buttons are not colored, and this is a thing we didn’t see before on default controllers. The controller itself features a white and black color scheme. Sony thinks this will be a radical generational leap. We will probably get this kind of duotone color scheme for PS5 too. That is interesting because Sony stuck with there black color only policy that started with PS2.
So far, we don’t know the PlayStation 5 controller’s technical specs. Still, it was announced that they would try “to maintain strong battery life for DualSense’s rechargeable battery, and to lessen the weight of the controller as much as possible as new features were added.” per their blog.
