PlayStation VR controller for PS5 unveiled

Sony reveals the hardware for the next-gen VR system

Posted on

Following the reveal last month that a new next-gen Virtual Reality system is in development for the PlayStation 5, Sony has now unveiled the new upcoming controller.

The new next-gen VR controller offers a unique design, which takes on an “orb” shape that allows you to hold the controller naturally, while playing with a high degree of freedom. Sony applied learnings from testing users with a range of hand sizes, as well as the decades of insights from controllers across all PlayStation platforms.

The new VR controller promises an adaptive trigger button that adds palpable tension when pressed, similar to what’s found in the DualSense controller. It will also have haptic feedback optimized for its form factor. The controller can detect your fingers without any pressing in the areas where you place your thumb, index, or middle fingers. This enables you to make more natural gestures with your hands during gameplay.

The VR controller is tracked by the new VR headset through a tracking ring across the bottom of the controller. The Left controller contains one analog stick, the triangle and square buttons, a “grip” button (L1), trigger button (L2) and Create button. The Right controller contains one analog stick, the cross and circle buttons, a “grip” button (R1), trigger button (R2) and Options button. The “grip” button can be used to pick up in-game objects, as one example.

The controller will be made available to developers in the near future. The new VR system won't be ready for consumers in 2021 however.
