Sony finally unveil the look of Playstation 5…well part of it anyway, the new controller called DualSense has been revealed.
PS5 Controller Revealed Called DualSense
While we’re still waiting for the unveiling of the next-generation console Playstation 5 which is set to launch in the holidays of 2020, Sony has decided to show us what the controller will look like. They introduce the DualSense controller which doesn’t look to be a huge departure from the PS4 version, but has some noticable differences that sets it apart from the last couple of generations including a more rounded body shape and a larger touchpad button.
Some new features that have been added include haptic feedback, adaptive triggers on the L2 and R2 triggers. There is a more sizeable touchpad and the replacement of the “Share” button with a new “Create” button instead. There is an increased battery life and built-in microphone. You may also notice the colour scheme, black and white.
Sony has also announced that the final version of the controller has now been shipped to developers around the world, meaning they were free to share the look with the public.

Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Jim Ryan shared the following about DualSense:
DualSense marks a radical departure from our previous controller offerings and captures just how strongly we feel about making a generational leap with PS5. 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. To the PlayStation community, I truly want to thank you for sharing this exciting journey with us as we head toward PS5’s launch in Holiday 2020. We look forward to sharing more information about PS5, including the console design, in the coming months.
Previously the specs for PS5 had been shared including a 10 teraflop GPU and expandable SSD slot. There have also been rumours that PS5 would come with backwards compatibility for not just PS4 games but previous generations, so far only PS4 has been confirmed.
