The most up-close PS5 controller images yet have been published by a peripheral company.
Argentinian firm Evzen posted the images on its Instagram account this week, as well as a PS5 controller tear-down. The snaps show up-close details such as the iconic PlayStation symbols, which have been printed on the surface of DualSense, as well as the PS5 console and other peripherals.
PlayStation is heavily promoting the features of PS5’s DualSense controller in its marketing for the new console.
Last month 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 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.
