Looking for the latest news about PS5 controllers? So it’s hard to find certainty about it and Sony has officially announced that the next generation Play Station 5 will land by the end of 2020, along with the PS5 controller as a complement.
Even though we don’t know what the official name will look like or what it looks like, we know that the PS5 controller will have a big focus for user convenience. This means changing the PlayStation controller that is unique to new features and possibly eliminating the classic DualShock 4 technology.
Despite adding some great new features, it looks like when looking into its design, the PS5 controller might remain true to DualShock 4, with a few minor aesthetic adjustments.
Many people expect to hear more about the PS5 and its controllers in the coming months. What is it ?, what is the shape? When is it available? and how much is it ?. The question will arise from console enthusiasts, especially Sony output.
PS5 controller release date
The Sony PS5 controller will be released with PlayStation 5 at the end of 2020 – around October and December. Hope the PS5 controller, like DualShock 4 before, will work not only on PlayStation 5 but can also be for PCs (personal computers).
Price of the PS5 controller
The price for a PS5 controller has not yet been confirmed properly, but if you look at a PS4 controller that sells for around $ 50, estimating the new controller is a bit more expensive, maybe around $ 70.
The price is only speculation based on confirmed features and Sony’s previous pricing strategy for the controller.
PS5 Controller Features
The PS5 controller will include Haptic feedback to replace DualShock 4 technology. If viewed PS4 controller technology, where the controller can vibrate intensely during certain game events and according to the experience of the players.
Haptic feedback is simulating touch, meaning the controller will emit vibrations or movements to replicate the real touch experience. This aims to improve the performance of the controller.
The PS5 controller will also display adaptive triggers which according to Sony have been “inserted into the trigger button (L2 / R2)”. This adaptive trigger will allow developers to program trigger resistance to simulate more accurate actions.
In an interview with Business Insider Japan, SIE CEO Jim Ryan said: “3D audio and support for haptic feedback from controllers are things that if you try it, you will be surprised at how much they change. Even just playing the Gran Turismo Sport racing game with a PS5 controller is a completely different experience. Even though it works well with the previous controller, but you don’t want to go back (to the old controller) after you experience detailed road surfaces through haptic controls and playing using adaptive triggers. “
PS5 controller news and rumors
Sony (published by WIPO and discovered by SegmentNext) explained: “controller devices held by the user’s hand, including a microphone, a touch presentation device that brings a sense of touch to the user’s hand and a speaker.
“When the user inputs sound from the microphone, the speaker’s voice is suppressed and touch presentation control by the touch presentation device is carried out.”
That might mean the controller can receive voice commands through the built-in microphone, just like a smart speaker. Definition This is just an assumption which means these voice-controlled features may never actually come to the PS5 controller, but given the importance of sound technology at the moment, it’s probably one of the rumors that could have happened.
There are a number of rumors about compatibility with DualShock 5 and although it hasn’t been confirmed yet.
According to GamesRadar and Resetera on the comparison page of new models listed by PlayStation France for Sony PS4 and PS4 Pro, it seems that the two consoles are compatible with DualShock 4 and DualShock 5 controllers, or “DS4 / DS5”. Screenshot of the list uploaded to Resetera.
Published by offices in Japan (via VGC), Sony Interactive Entertainment presented a design for a new controller that looked very similar to DualShock 4.
Compared to DualShock 4, the new controller design has several key differences. The PS5 controller seems to have a slightly thicker design, has an internal microphone, a bigger trigger, no light bars and smaller sticks. It also seems that the Micro USB DualShock 4 port has been replaced by the USB-C port, which is placed at the top of the controller.
Other things like the stereo headset jack, the extension port at the bottom of the headset has been replaced by two larger circular ports. We think this will still be used to plug the headset, but the two jacks can each have a headphone and microphone slot, to improve compatibility with the headset. There is also a rectangular design that seems to wrap around the headset, which has the potential for a charging dock.
Keep in mind, the info above is just speculation and is not really accurate. The info was made only based on leaks from the Sony Company and other sites.
