With the PS5’s imminent arrival, Sony has taken a very slow approach to tease fans with new information. We’ve now got a good look at the PS5 launch lineup, the console, and of course, the redesigned DualSense controller. Well, we just got another good look at that controller thanks to Geoff Keighley with the latest addition to Summer Game Fest:
Up until now, we had only seen the controller in photos, but not how it looks or feels in real life. The DualSense controller has the same core design as the DualShock 4, however, it has been modified to be more ergonomic. New additions such as 3D rumble, a mic, and USB-C are also here.
Keighley also interviewed Eric Lempel, PlayStation’s Head of Marketing. As fans of PlayStation will know, Lempel showed off the PS4’s UI back when that console launched in 2013. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see the new UI in action here. We also got to see Keighley play Astro’s Playroom, a free game that is made exclusively to show off the DualSense’s new features.
