Another PlayStation 5 guide page discusses the console controller. Will it be Dualshock 5? What is known about Sony's new console controller?
According to Wired's 2019 reports, the latest controller for the PlayStation 5 console is expected to be very similar to Dualshock 4. The controller is designed to have a USB Type C input and be slightly heavier. The controller is expected to receive additional features and have a more capacious battery.
A new feature of the DualShock 5 is the trigger on the top of the controller, which has a dynamically changing resistance. Thus, pulling the trigger of a rifle, for example, and drawing the bow, is expected to differ significantly. In addition, both handles are to be equipped with separate haptic sensors that vibrate when on a different bedding. According to Wired, when you play Gran Turismo Sport and drive two wheels on the tarmac and two on the ground, you feel different vibrations on both sides. The Dualshock 5 is also reported to have a built-in microphone that will allow voice support for many games and console options.
So will the latest Dualshock 5, in addition to convenience, offer the smart assistant option, much like Google Assistant or Alexa? That will be revealed soon after Sony announces more details.
