Sony Interactive Entertainment America issued a new patent for a game controller and made speculation that this could be the design of the new PS5 controller.
Sony officially announced the presence of next-generation equipment at the beginning of this year. Although Sony boss Kenichiro Yoshida did not officially name the next console, he was intensely narrated to follow the normal numbering system and just to be called PlayStation 5.
Plans are taking shape for the emergence of the big PS5. Sony recently hired a Product Manager to plan the next GM console's roadmap and strategy.
PS5 Controller Patent?
Although PS5 features have been said for some time, no official information emerged. This includes all the details about the PS5 controller. However, in this patent, Sony is contemplated to plan a touch screen application.
In a patent of the United States Patent Office, the description of the "game controller" is:
A controller is provided to wirelessly interface with a computing device, including: a slot, a first extension extending from a first end of the main body, and a second extension extending from a second end of the main body. the first and second hand held first extension and the second extension respectively; a touch screen defined along the upper surface of the main body between the first extension and the second extension; a first set of buttons disposed on a first side of the main body and near the first side of the touch screen; and a second set of buttons disposed on the upper surface of the main body and a second side of the touch screen, close to the second extension.
Sony writes a lot of patents, and most of them don't see daylight, so take this rumor with a big pinch of salt!
In other rumors about the PS5 controller, the eagle-eyed players of the VR game Astro Bot Rescue Mission believe that there might be a clue as to what a controller in the game will be.
The following illustration shows a redesigned DualShock 5 illuminated around buttons and d-pad.
The release of PS5 at the moment is rumored that a closer look at Sony's new consensus in 2019 appeared in 2020. Due to the ability to produce photo-realistic graphics, backward compatibility also seems likely.
