Sony’s next gen console, the PlayStation 5 (PS5) is up and coming so of course we want to know everything about it. We’ve gotten quite a bit of info so far, but now we might have gotten a look at the PS5’s controller. Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) recently filed for a patent for a ‘controller’ at the Japanese Patent Office.
And based on the patent, it looks pretty similar to the current DualShock 4 controller on the PS4. It’ll have the touchpad on the front, and follows a similar design pattern, and I’m not really sure what I expected it to look like. However, there are certain differences that may or may not be a good thing. It seems the light bar may be gone, as the top only has a charging port.
Such a mundane feature you forget about, but now with the slim possibility that I’m losing it, I’ll miss it more than ever. Anyway, there might be a built-in mic at the bottom, the trigger and stick also seem smaller. Not to mention the adaptive triggers which will have a resistance that will relate to the game you’re playing and simulates the action more accurately.
It just looks more rounded, and a refined version of the DualShock 4. Nothing breathtaking externally, but internally is where it’s at. Don’t forget, it’s going to feature haptic feedback that’s more accurate, and full feeling. Guess the next gen controller is going to be all about the feelsss.
But let’s not forget. These are just patents and in no way an indication of what the end result will look like. Stay tuned to LiveatPC.com for more info on the PS5!
