That’s according to information published on PlayStation France’s website comparing the specs of the different PS4 models.
UPDATE 07/04: Sony has officially unveiled PS5‘s DualSense controller, which it calls “a radical departure” from its previous DualShock pads.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES:
The name of the PS5 controller hasn’t been publicly announced, but given Sony’s branding conventions, DualShock 5 would be unsurprising.
The company recently confirmed that its next-gen console, which is set to launch during the 2020 holiday season, will be called PlayStation 5 and feature a logo very similar to PS4’s.
Speaking to Business Insider Japan following the PS5 logo reveal, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan said it’s important PS4’s market-leading installed base can clearly identify with the branding of PlayStation’s new console.
“It’s important for products with the PlayStation brand to be consistent,” he said. “It’s important for anyone to immediately and clearly think of it as a PlayStation.
“We have 100 million PS4 owners. We have a duty to keep them happy, interested, and engrossed.”
Despite its similar appearance, the PS5 logo quickly broke Instagram like records for a games brand image.
A Sony patent recently revealed images of a potential new DualShock controller featuring additional rear buttons, while new images claiming to show a PlayStation 5 controller prototype and development kit were posted online in early January.
VGC has contacted Sony for comment on the online DualShock 5 listing.
