Quite unexpectedly, Sony unveiled the new controller for the future PlayStation 5. The DualSense, with its black and white, sleek design, garners unanimous approval: it is as beautiful as it is really different from its predecessors. Sony says that the new controller will have haptic feedback, a built-in microphone (a first for Sony) and a USB-C port. The Share button is now called “Create”, providing “new ways for players to create epic gameplay content to share with the world.” Sony says it will provide further details on DualSense closer to launch, which should take place around the Holidays. We’re wondering if the design of the DualSense is a good foretaste of the future PlayStation 5?
