    PlayStation 5: patent shows what its controller could look like

    PlayStation 5: patent shows what its controller could look like

    A patent filed in Japan suggests the first lines of what could be the controller of the future PlayStation 5.


    The change in continuity. This is what could best qualify the alleged new Sony controller for the future PlayStation 5, preview on a patent published by the competent Japanese office.

    A priori, this supposed DualShock 5 controller does not seem to be very different from the current model on the form. The joysticks would remain symmetrical, the physics of the controller would remain all round and buttons, all located in the same place.

    However, by studying the documents more closely, small things may have changed.

    The first is the multidirectional cross whose physics would be less in relief. The touch screen could offer a larger glide surface or, failing that, would not overflow on the back of the controller. There is also the presence of two jacks - apparently 3.5 mm jack type - which are present on the front of the controller. We also note that there seems to be a second microphone, just below the PlayStation button.

    The triggers appear a little wider and a little longer. This is probably to better highlight the haptic feedback technology and the brand new active progressive pressure that must integrate the new controllers.

    In his interview with Wired, Mark Cerny - chief system architect at Sony - had said that the controllers of the PS5 have a battery more efficient and more enduring. The diagram shows that the light triangle on the back of the current DualShock 4 has disappeared. It was not used much by games - except for VR, sometimes - and it's a source of less consumption!
    Another benefit of this supposed disappearance, the back of the controller is less curved inward, USB charging socket (Type-C now) sees its position changed: it goes up a few inches up.

    Expected for the end of next year, PlayStation 5 should not be unveiled before E3 2020, unless Sony decides otherwise. Be that as it may, rumors are going to be buzzing about it in the coming months, both on the final technical platform and on the shape of its case and the games available at the exit.
