After a lot of chit chat online, Sony has officially pulled back the curtain on its highly-anticipated PS5 DualSense controller.
Keep scrolling for all the details on the hotly-anticipated drop, including the one feature that’s really got people talking… and not necessarily for the right reasons.
Alongside the Microsoft Xbox, the PlayStation is perhaps one of the most used consoles for gaming in the world.
It was founded in the wake of World War II after Masaru Ibuka started an electronics shop in Tokyo, Japan.
And the business has grown to be extremely diverse.
This includes professional electronics, entertainment, financial services, the music industry, gaming, and the TV industry.
They own the largest music entertainment business in the world.
So it’s certainly safe to say that they are a company that knows what they’re doing.
The iconic PlayStation.
And fast-forward twenty-five-years, the PlayStation has since had 8 different generations including many other pieces of hardware and add-ons.
And this was also when the PlayStation App was introduced, allowing users to use their smartphones and tablets as a second screen to enhance gameplay.
The technology now used is truly amazing…
And Sony is now one of the leading technology companies in the world.
Fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of the new generation PlayStation.
And now, the wait is finally over.
In April of last year, it was announced by video game designer Mark Cerny that the PlayStation 5 will be coming in 2020.
The PlayStation 5 website went live a few weeks ago.
“We’ve begun to share some of the incredible features you can expect from PlayStation 5, but we’re not quite ready to fully unveil the next generation of PlayStation,” reads the company’s statement on the website.
“Sign up to be among the first to receive updates as we announce them, including news on the PS5 release date, PS5 price and the upcoming roster of PS5 launch games,” the website goes on to say.
Sony’s chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki explained why it’s still early days to determine the cost of it.
“First, we must absolutely control the labor cost, the personnel cost, it must be controlled,” he said, “And the initial ramp up, how much can we prepare initially, we will work on the production and the sales and we will have to prepare the right volume as we launch this.”
So it looks like fans have a little longer to wait for those answers…
“What is not very clear or visible is because we are competing in the space so it’s very difficult to discuss anything about the price at this point of time, and depending upon the price level, we may have to determine the promotion that we are going to deploy and how much costs we are prepared to pay,” he went on to say.
Some fresh new details about the new console have been revealed online.
From what the leak suggested, things sound pretty interesting…
Allegedly, the PlayStation 5 will support 8K gaming and work with all old PS4 games when it launches later this year.
But of course, we want concrete confirmation from Sony themselves.
And last month, our prayers were answered…
Although there’s one feature, in particular, that’s caught everyone’s eye…

They’ve been the talk of the town for quite some time, and now we’ve finally got all the details.
4K UHD Blu-Ray drive, a custom AMD GPU, and the SSD.
But there’s one feature that’s really got everyone talking.
Although it’s been met with mixed reactions.
Lead system architect Mark Cerny confirmed the speculation during the “Road to PS5″ presentation on Wednesday.
And, players will be able to free up space on their consoles by “running your older games from standard external storage.”
Some game code “just can’t handle” the boosted frequencies of the PlayStation 5, he explained.
He also added that boost is “truly massive,” so games have to be tested on a “title-by-title basis.”
Only PS4 and PS4 Pro were confirmed. The company didn’t mention backward-compatibility with older generations.
Yep, people aren’t happy.
“The PlayStation 5 doesn’t have any backwards compatibility. trash a** console.”
Cerny reassured gaming buffs that “testing is going well.”
So, no need to panic just yet.

Safe to say, the presentation sent Twitter into a gaming-induced frenzy.
Seems some are adamant that the PS5 just doesn’t cut it compared to Xbox.
Well, you can’t please everyone, can you?
Here it is in all its glory!
The controller was revealed on the PlayStation official blog.
There are similar button layouts to the DualShock as well as the same dual analog stick in the center.
DualSense has a built-in microphone, a sleek new white design, and a haptic feedback system said to add a variety of sensations as players progress through games.
