More images have been published showing a disassembled PlayStation 5 DualSense controller.
The images, which were published on the Instagram account of an Argentinian peripheral firm, put particular focus on the controller’s adaptive triggers, which are said to allow players to feel tension in their game actions.
PlayStation is heavily promoting the features of PS5’s DualSense controller in its marketing for the new console.
This summer the platform holder premiered a PS5 TV ad which focuses on the new features of PS5’s DualSense controller and welcomes viewers to “a new world of immersion”. DualSense is set to feature haptic feedback and ‘adaptive’ triggers, among other features.
A newly approved PlayStation patent suggests DualSense could automatically detect the user’s identity by how they hold their controller.
The patent describes a system that uses sensors (such as gyroscope and accelerometer) to determine the identity of specific users by how they hold their controller, and thus automatically log them in or out of their profiles when they use it.
The tech would remove the need for users to manually log into their accounts, the patent says, and would properly attribute scores and Trophies to the correct user when two or more players were sharing a controller.
The platform holder has confirmed a PlayStation 5 release date of November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia and South Korea.
The rest of the world will get the console a week later on November 19, including Europe, Middle East, South America, Asia and South Africa.
PS5 will be priced at $500/€500/£450 for the standard edition and $400/€400/£360 for the Digital Edition, with the only difference between them being the former’s inclusion of a disc drive.
