Sony’s generation console, the PlayStation 5 (PS5) is not too far away. Now, we get a look of what might be the controller for the upcoming console. Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) has recently filed for a patent of such a device at the Japanese Patent Office.
From the patent, it looks similar to the current DualShock 4 controller, including the touchpad on its front. As we dive deeper, we find that the light bar may possibly be removed, as the top part of the controller only has a charging port.
According to Wired, the bottom holes could possibly be a built-in microphone as well. Other than that, the triggers and sticks are made to be smaller. It will also feature adaptive triggers, where the triggers will have variable resistance to simulate actions like drawing a bow
Overall, it seems like Sony is making a rounder controller for a better grip. Additionally, it will also feature haptic feedback that’s more capable than the rumble tech that most gamers are used to.
As usual, the patent does not necessarily confirm that this is the controller for the PlayStation 5. Previously, we have seen Sony’s patents of cloud-based gaming feature on a controller and a game console. Nevertheless, the PlayStation 5 is coming out during the Holiday Season of 2020. By then, we will be able to see the official design of the next-generation console and controller.
