Sony patents exhibits what the PS5 controller would possibly appear to be
A brand new patent filed with the Japanese Patent Workplace might have given us our first glimpse of the PS5’s controller. And, regardless of the console itself wanting weird as heck in all its leaked images, these pictures of the controller that’d accompany it present one thing very acquainted and never a lot completely different than what we have now now.
There’s no manner of figuring out for certain if that is the “Dualshock 5″ or no matter Sony intends to name their next-gen controller, in fact. It could possibly be a prototype for one thing meant for this era, or only a primary idea the corporate’s patenting simply in case. However nonetheless, speculating is enjoyable. Let’s see what this controller has to supply.
The design change isn’t a drastic one. I’d argue the shift from the Dualshock three to the Four was larger than this one. Maybe the largest change instantly obvious is that this controller lacks the sunshine bar on the highest. The triggers and sticks additionally seem like barely smaller, and the headphone jack on the underside is being changed with what seems a USB port of some variety. The grips additionally seem like just a little thicker, with the thumbstick nubs alongside the underside edge not being as pronounced.
The look of this controller would appear to jibe with the controller as described by Wired’s Peter Rubin. Whereas he was not permitted to ask many questions on it, he did notice that it appeared lots just like the Dualshock 4 — as do the pictures on this patent. He does describe a small gap that appeared like a microphone, which makes me marvel if that’s what one of many small holes on the underside of the above picture are.
These pictures don’t element something concerning the adaptive triggers Rubin described — those which are supposedly delicate sufficient to simulate the likes of a bow and arrow. The truth is, nothing that I can discern concerning the patent (which is in Japanese) describes the interior workings of the controller.
We’ll have to attend till the official divulge to see if that is the controller we’ll be utilizing with the PS5. When you’re all for seeing all the pictures, you’ll be able to have a look at the patent here.
