Playstation’s new VR controller revealed
Following on from their update regarding “next-gen VR” for the PS5, Playstation have today revealed what the controller to be paired with the system will look/feel like.
With features similar to those you’d find on the PS5 Dualsense controller, the new VR controller includes adaptive triggers, haptic feedback, finger touch detection, tracking (via the new VR headset) and your usual Playstation buttons and analog sticks.
The first thing you’ll notice with our next-gen VR controller is the unique design, which takes on an “orb” shape that allows you to hold the controller naturally, while playing with a high degree of freedom. There are no constraints with how you’re moving your hands, providing developers with the ability to create unique gameplay experiences.
We also designed the new controller with great ergonomics in mind, so it’s well-balanced and comfortable to hold in each of your hands. We 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 result is an iconic design that will change how VR games are played.
