Sony has been quiet about the PlayStation 5 for a while now. They revealed the logo for PlayStation 5, and there was backlash towards Sony, since Microsoft revealed more. However, they took the time during what was scheduled for Game Developers Conference (GDC 2020), an in depth reveal of PlayStation 5’s technical Specifications in a livestreamed event. (Obviously because of COVID19 pandemic.) That was not enough for gamers, they wanted to know more about PlayStation 5. Recently, Sony posted a new blog post to talk about the new PS5 Controller. Sony is doing away with the “DualShock” brand, and is now opting for the new “DualSense” name.
From what we could glean from this image, we can see that there are some design changes to the overall design of the PlayStation 5. First feature that is changed is the “Share” button. Sony changed the button from “Share” to “Creeate,” Sony is not ready to speak about the “Crteate” button yet, they said that they’ll reveal the “Create” button’s features as we get closer and closer to the launch of PlayStation 5.
Sony also confirmed the speakers has gotten an overhaul. You can speak into the controller with a button, however… if you wanted to speak for a longer period of time – Sony said to have those headsets ready.
Jim Ryan, the new C.E.O. at Sony Interactive Entertainment spoke about the new controller…
“DualSense marks a radical departure from our previous controller offerings and captures just how strongly we feel about making a generational leap with PS5. The new controller, along with the many innovative features in PS5, will be transformative for games – continuing our mission at PlayStation to push the boundaries of play, now and in the future. To the PlayStation community, I truly want to thank you for sharing this exciting journey with us as we head toward PS5’s launch in Holiday 2020. We look forward to sharing more information about PS5, including the console design, in the coming months.”– Jim Ryan, President & CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment
