New images of the PS5’s DualSense controller have popped up this week, showing off more details.
These new images of the DualSense controller comes courtesy of Argentinian company Evzen, which is making customized versions of the controllers. In fact, these new images come straight from Evzen’s Instagram account. Sure, the images themselves are fairly low quality, but overall, they seem to depict the controller fairly accurately. I think it’s safe to say that this is a reliable source, yeah?
Come a Little Closer Now, DualSense
As you can all see, there’s a lot more detail on these images Evzen gave us. You can see the face buttons, the texture of the thumbsticks, and the USB port which will presumably connect the controller to the PS5. As you can see, the rim of the thumbsticks has a more textured surface compared to the DualShock 4 controller. This should provide players with a better grip on the thumbsticks, or it could make their thumbs extra-sore with extended use. We’ll just have to see when people actually get to play with it for a while.
However, there’s one more tidbit you all might find interesting, and that’s the textured surface on the sides and back of the DualSense controller that’s supposed to give players a better grip on it.
As you can see, that texture isn’t just a repeated pattern. It’s actually a jumble of squares, triangles, crosses, and circles reminiscent of the shapes of the PlayStation controllers’ face buttons. If this is the case, it’s a very neat touch on Sony’s part. I would very much love to find out what this pattern actually feels like. Does it actually provide a good surface to grip, or does it slip a bit if you hold it wrong? Is it comfortable to hold, or does it chafe after extended use?
And lastly, Evzen even shows the DualSense controller’s, eh, private parts for us to admire.
Aside from the questionable levels of lewdness, you see see the electronics within the controller. I don’t have the technical background to comment on this, but it all looks very official and neat.
Evzen really wants us to take some very close looks at the DualSense controller. Which is fair, considering that the DualSense controller is going to be released on November 12, 2020. And of course, the PS5 as well. Because there’s no point in getting the controller without having a console to control. It’d be like getting an Xbox controller, but not the Xbox itself.
