Sony’s new patent application revealed the first images of the PlayStation 5 joystick. As expected, the PS5 controller doesn’t have much to offer in terms of appearance.
PlayStation 5, the new home console Sony is preparing to release next year, continues to elaborate. One of the most curious parts of the console game controller for the first time appeared today. Here’s a picture of Sony’s application to the Japanese patent office:
It can be said that the new controller is not much different from the PlayStation 4 arm in general terms. Trigger keys and analog sticks have been slightly modified. We also see the light bar removed. Finally, a USB-C port is located in the headphone jack.
We already knew that the new controller would look like the DualShock 4 in terms of appearance. Mark Cerny, the architectural leader of PlayStation, used statements in this direction in his earlier statements. Cerny said that innovations would be inside, not outside the controller.
The new features of the new joystick to date include a new vibration technology called tactile feedback and adaptive triggers.
Another highlight of the PS5 controller design is that the touchpad, which is one of the most criticized parts of the DualShock 4, remains the same. The touch pad, which Sony introduced with great hopes but not much response in the gaming world, seems to continue to occupy an important area in the new controller.
The PlayStation 5 will be available in November-December 2020. So now only stayed a short period of a year. The official introduction of the console is also expected in early 2020.
