The internet is going crazy over the new controller design for Sony’s upcoming PS5. Even though the model for the console itself has yet to be revealed but the controller called DualSense makes it obvious that Sony is bidding goodbye to its 25-year-old model.

Unlike PS4’s controller, this one features some major changes both on the outside and the inside. It contains the previously announced haptic feedback (replacing the old rumble technology in previous controllers) and the new adaptive triggers that can make room for the resistance of the triggers for different gameplay effects. For the first time in history, you can also see an integrated microphone on the controller with a much needed USB-C port.
On the outside, it looks similar to the style of PSVR and has a new two-tone color scheme. The controller is designed to have a rounded shape so the grips and face buttons are easier to hold and access.

The create button has been added instead of the share button so now it will provide “new ways for players to create epic gameplay content to share with the world.” The company says that more information regarding this detail will be announced soon as we get closer to the launch.
As compared to the old DualShock 4, the buttons in DualSense are getting some light tweaks. For instance, the PlayStation button has now been cut out in the actual shape of the logo and the triggers have gotten a more angled design than the previous controllers.

Some features that both DualSense and DualShock 4 have in common are the center-mounted touchpad and the light bar even though the bar has been moved from the top of the controller to the left and right sides of the touchpad.
The company has also retained the symmetrical controller layout with the D-pad and face buttons on the top half of the controller and the matching analog stick on the bottom.
More details about the colors and the price of the controller will be announced later with the release of the PS5 console in the fall. But looking at DualShock 4’s price of $59.9, we think that the additional features will certainly make DualSense expensive.
