Sony PS5 controller release date, news and confirmed features

Sony has officially announced the next-generation PlayStation 5 will land at the end of 2020 – along with a brand new PS5 controller to complement it.

Although we don’t know what its official name will be (or what it will look like), we do know the PS5 controller will have a big focus on player immersion and feedback. This means shaking up the typical PlayStation controller formula with new features, and even doing away with the DualShock 4’s classic rumble technology.

We’ve gathered everything we know so far about the PS5 controller right here for your perusal, including confirmed features, the latest news and the juiciest rumors.

A price for the PS5 controller has not been confirmed yet, but with the PS4 controller retailing for around £40/$50, we expect the new controller to be just a bit more expensive – maybe around £60/$70.

The PS5 controller will include haptic feedback to replace the DualShock 4’s rumble technology.

While rumble technology seen the PS4 controller vibrating intensely during particular in-game events, it wasn’t particularly fine-tuned to the player’s experience. Haptic feedback simulates touch, meaning the controller will output vibrations or movements to replicate a real-life touch experience. This aims to improve the controller’s feedback and therefore player’s immersion.

The PS5 controller will also feature adaptive triggers which Sony says have “been incorporated into the trigger buttons (L2/R2)”. These adaptive triggers will allow developers to program the resistance of the triggers to simulate actions more accurately.
