As if its SIRIM approval is not enough to tease all of us here, here comes the first real footage of the PlayStation 5 DualSense wireless controller. While there were indeed some leaked images appeared online before, this footage is as legit as it gets.
Shown in a 19-second clip, it came from Geoff Keighley who is a well-known journalist, content creator and presenter within the video games industry. The clip serves as a teaser for a much elaborate hands-on session that Geoff will host tonight at 11:30 PM Malaysian time that will also involve PlayStation’s Head of Worldwide Marketing, Eric Lempel.

The PS5 DualSense controller hands-on is part of the larger Summer Game Fest (SGF) that have been going on since May and will last till next month. SGF is generally being seen at the digital counterparts of traditional large-scale game conventions such as E3 and Gamescom that have been cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, it is not known if Geoff will also be showing off the actual console during the hands-on session but the SGF’s lead man did mention in another teaser clip that he will also share “the experience of playing the PS5”. Well, render us excited to see what Geoff and Sony have to show off tonight.
