Sony has just revealed the new controller for their upcoming PlayStation 5, and it's certainly different.

The new DualSense controller certainly does mark a stark leap from the fourth DualShock controller for the PS4. Just look at it: gone is the monotone colour scheme; instead, the new controller uses a duotone design. The controller showcased in the blog post is mostly white with black highlights, PlayStation logo, and joysticks.

DualSense marks a radical departure from our previous controller offerings and captures just how strongly we feel about making a generational leap with PS5, says Sony CEO Jim Ryan.

One major new feature in the controller is haptic feedback, which adds a variety of powerful sensations you’ll feel when you play, such as the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud. The left and right triggers are now adaptive, making you feel realistic tension in your actions.

The light bar has been moved from the back of the controller to either side of the touch pad, giving it a slightly larger look and feel.

The in-built microphone on the controller will let you be able to quickly use in-game voice chat without having to go grab a headset.

The controller's Share button has been replaced with a Create button. Sony says that they will be giving more information on the new Create feature closer to the launch of the PS5.Sony has just revealed the new controller for their upcoming PlayStation 5, and it's certainly different.
