PS5 Controller Revealed in New Sony Patent | Bulkier Dualshock 4 Design and No Lightbar

  • Published on Nov 18, 2019
  • Recently a newly filed patent by Sony was discovered and it reveals what it most likely the PS5 controller which is more than likely going to be named the Dualshock 5. A few things worth noting with this PlayStation 5 controller is that the overall design looks like a bulkier PS4 Dualshock 4 controller. It also seems that the lightbar has been removed which will mean better battery life. This is some very interesting PS5 news and if this is in fact what the PS5 controller ends up looking like, I'm all for it.

    What are your thoughts on this potentially being the PS5 controller, it seems very likely that this is in fact the final design we are looking at. Do you like the bulkier look or are you not a fan, also how do you feel about the lightbar potentially being removed? Also, let me know if you think Sony will us the same material for the thumbsticks.

      They need to go back to the dome thumbsticks period majority of gamers prefer them over the other options.

      MBG It’s a necessity for PSVR so it does have a practical use so I hope they have an alternative tracking system

    I think there's still gonna be a touch screen that only lights when you touch it. That would be awesome

    The PS controller was to me already a perfect controller... The only thing I want them to find a fix for permanently, is the stick drift to disappear and never happen, make that little coil sealed and air tight... Got 8 plus controllers and only 2 that don't drift, seems like it could easily be solved in manufacturing and design!!! But I'm sure it helps them sell more!

    There is a use for the light-bar. It signifies the charger is connected, flashing when charging, constant orange when charged. Also in some games, forget which, it serves as a health bar, green with full hp, then orange, and red for danger.

    I hoped against all hope they would integrate paddles in this controller

    Easy solution on the light bar. Keep it but just add a setting to turn it off. Some people like it for character and I can respect that. Me personally, I play in the dark and if I get up or move or something is super easy to find again.

    I was hoping for a microphone for chatting without a headset. I suggested that be a feature to my friend several months ago. I’m glad they seem to be adding it. That and More Bluetooth capability (non proprietary) for wireless headsets as opposed to bulky headsets that need to be plugged in to the controller.I would hope for a bit less give and more durable analog sticks as I wear mine out where I’m having to put pressure to run in certain games. It would then veer in a certain direction. It was specifically noticeable in GTA when I drove. I liked the light pad just for charging purposes and knowing when the menu was coming up where I would have the audio coming out of the TV and not my headset, but if we get better battery life and there’s some small indicator light to show if it’s charged then that would be fine with me. I don’t want a touch screen as I do admit that I drop my controller occasionally, so that’s just a potential disaster waiting to happen. I hope being bulkier it’s more durable. PS4 controllers are already the cost of a game and I imagine that number is only going to go up for the PS5. I was never able to acclimate to the 360 controller for certain games more for its configuration, but it just felt uncomfortable. I’m glad to hear that it will still be slimmer than the Xbox controller. Overall, it seems like a really good design.
    I’m just looking forward to when we see what the new generation is capable of doing, load speeds, photorealistic graphics, the games, etc., the price and release date. I hope in general that they produce enough where you don’t have to camp out overnight on Black Friday or any day when a shipment comes in just so you can get a PS5 or spend a small ransom because somebody bought 10 and is selling them for over $1,000 dollars on EBay (which I have no designs of doing either). I’ll just wait for the insanity to die down. Hopefully, we can just preorder the console online or at a store, but I am guessing that is a pipe dream. Thanks for the content. I’m always grateful for the work that you put in whether it’s research, editing and the passion you have for gaming shows in every video you make. Thanks for doing what you do and keep it going.

    I hope it’s not a lot bigger than the DS4... I have really small hands.
    The PS3 controller was the perfect size for me.
    The DS4 was manageable, but not as easy as DS3.
    If DS5 is bigger then I hope I can still use a DS4 on the PS5 console.

    The battery life was a non issue sunce I always kept it connected to my PS4. I'm not at all a fan of wireless controllers.

    I just hope the bulkier design of Dualshock 5 doesn't feel clunky when playing Tekken, as it does on Xbox controllers. The Dualshock 4 was perfect for fighting games..

    I know there will be those who will say that "it's the same controller or the same design, no innovation" blah blah. My response to that is if it ain't broke don't fix it. I think Sony arguably has the best controller design. Why change the design of the controller for ps5 and risk being disliked especially when the dualshock design for ps4 is spot on.
    Yes I liked the light bar. As long as the dualshock still works with vr tracking

    I believe a touch screen a thing, you know how easy it will be to send message to a friend or see who on? I can see myself checking to see if my group of rainbow 6 is on without going to the main menu and click on friends

    I'm just glad we don't need batteries, xbox player will never get that satisfaction. They need to spend another 30$ to get a rechargeable one.

    I just noticed it has no screws on the back and has a clip like thing on the bottom, just by the way they have made it easy to open with the clip it makes me think this controller will be a modular one.

    im not fussed about the light bar but it was a nice thing to have, i also think they made it more xbox bulky shape but could be how the picture looks, i do like to see the speaker still being in it even though i personally dont use it, i have the sound through the soundbar/tv, but i do know people love using it for the sounds to come through

    MBG, you don't need to offload your cargo when you want to repair spray it, just hit square when you have the spray equipped and then R2

    They can't be removing it, otherwise some PS4 games won't be playable. More than likely it's just a part of the top of the touchpad, instead of below it.

    Doesn't bother me that the light bar will be gone. I like gaming in the dark and I play close to my 4k tv and the glare from the light in my tv will definitely not be missed lol

    Man this is sad no more concrete genie, infamous or psvr functionality with just the normal controller. I hope we can still use the DualShock 4 on the PS5

    Ds4 was perfect, best controller ever. Looking at the illustration on this patent im surprised that there is no back buttons like on a scuf. Hope that the ds4 is compatible with ps5, dont want to use a stock controller ever again. we want paddles on the back sony, not a gimmick small lcd pannel on the front.

    I don't care with the look, what inside is matter. Heptic feedback for example that mentioned will simulate what is going on by just holding it in your hand

  • Chris White
    Chris White 25 days ago +1

    I think the new design looks great. I'm very curious on the haptic technology, and the triggers that were supposed to give more immersive gameplay. I do hope the buttons are made better than in the dualshock 4, though. I play a lot of fighting games, and feel the directional pad gets wore out fairly quick for a $60 controller, and so I hope the new ones are just a bit more durable.

    Aesthetically I loved the light bar. Outside of that it wasn’t very practical.

    Aww I hope they would get rid of the touchscreen. The touchscreen is literally useless even more so than the light bar. Even first party studios doesn’t use it.

  • Tristan The vr Gamecat

    A touch screen could be interesting maybe like another of the home interface check out clips you recorded on there to upload etc without leaving the game on the TV

  • MGBfilmTV

    Very interesting. Maybe it’s a controller and a handheld. Like a vita and a controller all in one?

    I'm using the Nacon Revolution Unlimited Pro. I hope the DS5 is a similar size to the Pro controller I'm using. I hate the DS4, I've always preferred bigger controllers, like Xbox's.

    Too simple, i expect it al least to transform to a portable console

  • Bradley Buradori
    Bradley Buradori 25 days ago

    The main reason i liked the lightbar was because earlier ps4 games actually used it to add immersion,on gta if you get cops on you it flashes blue and red and lights up the whole room making it look like there's actually a police car outside your place and on tomb raider if you use fire torches it would flicker orange as if you were holding a torch too.New games don't use it for anything so it was cool at first but became pointless with no games using it

    I liked the light bar for multiple reasons so this upsets me a bit. It was used very cleverly in certain instances by developers, it helped with the camera and VR tracking so I assume they have a replacement hopefully for that and I also didn’t really mind the battery drain honestly. I never played long enough in one session for it to matter before charging it again

    I kinda liked it but I don't mind that it's gone either... implications for PSVR 2.0 are what excites me because if light tracking is out... then what are we going to get instead?!?!

  • VazGaming
    VazGaming 25 days ago +5

    I love the Light Bar makes the controller unique!! Just add an option to turn it off if you want to... so other people that like it can still have it!

    I do see that Touch-pad being replaced with a Touch-screen. Uses like a touch-keyboard, touch-navigation in the operating system, showing off game-lobbies, game-scores during FPS, a back-facing mirror during racing games alongside a quick item menu in open world games. I can see a touch screen being a useful addition in comparison to the barely used touch-pad and with today's battery capabilities I don't see it being a huge problem. We'd probably see a bump to $69.99 for each controller.
