Sony has formally launched the DualSense controller, the subsequent-gen gamepad we’ll be utilizing with the PlayStation 5, when the console releases in slack 2020.
And whereas the PS5 controller’s irregular behold has ruin up fan conception, the announcement gave us a handful of minute print about attention-grabbing parts the gamepad provides, alongside with haptic feedback, a constructed-in microphone and a unique ‘Construct’ button.
But what we’re extra attracted to is what Sony did no longer uncover us. The DualSense PS5 controller is the precious valuable ticket we now comprise had of what the PS5 will behold fancy – and other most likely PS5 parts that Sony might maybe perhaps well even comprise hidden up its sleeve.
So, we now comprise place collectively a list of the largest PS5 construct clues we now comprise noticed from the DualSense controller announcemnet, alongside with what the PlayStaton 5 might maybe perhaps well also behold fancy and Sony’s most likely priorities subsequent technology.

A dusky and white coloration arrangement
What’s without delay striking in regards to the DualSense controller is its unique construct; and, particularly, its coloration arrangement. Aside from the grey fashioned PlayStation, Sony has continuously opted to assign the typical PlayStation editions matte dusky – offering coloration variations and designs at a later date.
Then over again, the DualSense is two-tone white and dusky. The gamepad is primarily white, with dusky triggers, L1 and R1 buttons, analog sticks and a dusky underbelly.
Up to now, PlayStation controllers comprise continuously matched their console counterparts – it could perhaps perhaps well perhaps be queer for this now to no longer be the case. This suggests that we would perhaps also see a two-tone white and dusky PlayStation 5 console, an equivalent to the controller, with the console itself boasting a primarily white construct with dusky lining or sections.
Alternatively, Sony might maybe perhaps well also offer two coloration variations on the PS5 from open – a dusky model and a white model. Then over again, this does no longer seem seemingly.
Sony’s going futuristic
No longer handiest is the DualSense controller’s coloration arrangement diversified from what we now comprise seen in outdated PlayStation gamepads, however its overall form and construct is furthermore a huge departure.
Sony has long previous futuristic with the DualSense’s construct – with followers even comparing the controller to notorious film droids and robots – suggesting that we’ll see something a similar in the construct of the PS5 console.
Whereas all of us know that the PS5 might maybe perhaps well also no longer behold anything else fancy the dev kits we now comprise seen thus a long way, the alien-futuristic construct might maybe perhaps well also perhaps be in the factual vein. The controller is white (as we now comprise discussed) however looks to be like gorgeous simple and sleek. With a boomerang-fancy rounded form, no definition in the button colours, and a blue mild on either facet of the touchpad, it looks to be like fancy Sony is aiming for a minimalistic, futuristic construct for the PS5.
As we identified with the coloration arrangement, PlayStation controllers typically match their counterpart consoles, so we are in a position to request a a similar minimalist construct for the PS5 – seemingly with blue lighting fixtures, a minute bit rounded edges and minute definition in phrases of buttons and ports.
Extra focal point on introduction
Sony has done away with the DualShock 4 controller’s ‘Piece’ button for the DualSense. As a substitute, the button has been replaced by a unique ‘Construct’ button.
“With Construct, we’re over over again pioneering unique ways for gamers to construct story gameplay shriek to fragment with the realm, or correct to revel in for themselves,” Sony talked about in its announcement.
Whereas the firm says it is no longer revealing further minute print unless closer to open, we now comprise bought a few ideas about what it will be for. We know that Sony loves photo modes in its games, which is unsurprising given how handsome PlayStation exclusives have a tendency to be, however it for crawl’s conceivable that this button will be an extension of that, permitting gamers further resolve a watch on over photo modes and movies, so they might be able to extra without problems fragment their adventures.
Then over again, it be furthermore conceivable that Sony might maybe perhaps well also perhaps be following Microsoft’s footsteps in turning into extra streamer-pleasant, with the ‘Construct’ button leaping to shriek introduction alternate solutions that would also perhaps be outdated by streamers. But we’re no longer definite they would place this form of choice factual on the controller unless the firm is doing a good push into shriek introduction – which we doubt is the case.
A dilapidated, bolder behold
Over time, PlayStation has grown alongside its crew. The assign once the firm centered on being “family-pleasant”, PlayStation has matured and tends to focal point on an older viewers than the likes of Nintendo.
With the specs of its subsequent-gen consoles seemingly comparable with a gaming PC, in the precious instance Sony is susceptible to heart of attention on older gamers who are seeking to behold what standard games tech can compose and are overjoyed to employ good to catch it – and the DualSense’s behold suggests the console’s construct will replicate that.
With every iteration, PlayStation consoles’ construct has turn out to be extra dilapidated and heroic – and the PS5 would be basically the most dilapidated but. A sleek and futuristic construct would wait on the PS5 be seen now no longer as a toy, however as a gaming machine – the epitome of standard construct.
Extra focal point on multiplayer games
Sony might maybe perhaps well even comprise talked about its going to continue its focal point on anecdote-led single-player games, however it for crawl looks to be like fancy the firm is furthermore aiming to toughen multiplayer experiences.
The DualSense has every an audio jack and a constructed-in microphones, which must calm enable PS5 users to talk (and play) with mates extra without problems. We furthermore know that the PS5 will toughen the open of declare gameplay, which might maybe enable gamers to jump into a game’s matchmaking from their dwelling cloak, with no must boot up the total game.
A USB-C port
It is a minute factor however all of us know now that the DualSense controller will ticket by a USB-C port. But that furthermore manner that you simply might maybe perhaps well perhaps perhaps also perhaps have the ability to ticket other devices, much like your cellular phone, from your PS5 console. It is the minute things.
Haptic feedback will feature it apart from Xbox
One of many DualSense controller’s key parts is haptic feedback, which might maybe provide “worthy sensations” whereas you play games. Whereas you drive thru mud, the controller will mimic the sluggishness of the auto thru touch. The DualSense furthermore has adaptive triggers, which manner you’ll want to calm in actual fact feel the stress as you plan a bow and arrow.
Curiously this characteristic is something Sony thinks will feature the PS5 apart from the Xbox Series X – and it be perhaps factual.
“Per our discussions with builders, we concluded that the sense of touch internal gameplay, grand fancy audio, hasn’t been a good focal point for many games,” Sony talked about in the controller announcement.
Whereas the Xbox One controller does comprise haptic feedback to a pair diploma, the firm hasn’t done grand to spend this, which handiest a handful of games in actual fact utilizing the characteristic successfully.
From what all of us know thus a long way, the Xbox Series X controller does no longer appear to comprise haptic feedback – no longer that Microsoft has revealed anyway.
