Sony’s upcoming DualSense controller for the next-gen PS5 could be a lot chunkier than the previous controllers, according to a leaked photo of the device in someone’s hand.
The picture was spotted on the Reserera gaming forum website of a user known as Lant_War. The upcoming DualSense controller can be seen sitting on top of a person’s hand, and it’s not clear who took this photo, but it seems relatively legitimate. Here is what you need to know.
Sony’s New DualSense Controller Has an Unexpected Design
While it’s a bit hard to tell from the angle of the image, the DualSense controller spotted recently looks thicker and larger than PS4’s previous DualShock controller, a considerate watermark for the company’s game controllers.
Depending on how you feel about the upcoming controller, a thicker variant might be a boon if you have big hands or a bit chunky for some. However, the DualSense controller doesn’t seem to be as large as the “Duke” controller that arrived with the original Xbox. That game controller was so big that Microsoft decided to bring a smaller variant that became the original Xbox’s well-known special edition versions and establish the template for now praised Xbox Wireless Controller.
Sony’s upcoming DualSense controller promises some intriguing features to put game console controllers into the next-gen, with improved haptic feedback, so that gamers can feel the tension of a drawn bowstring in a game, for instance. But its awkward two-tone livery and a concept that is placed somewhere between a DualShock 4 and Xbox Wireless Controller have somewhat divided thoughts, much like the PS5’s console appearance.
However, in the leaked picture, the DualSense controller seems reasonably attractive, and the two-tone color touch isn’t quite as rough as we might have expected. But we should wait until the real DualSense controller arrives to get a chance to try it out.
