Sony’s PS5 VR Controller Officially Revealed

Sony hasn’t said all that much about what the PS5 VR experience will be, but the company today outed the controllers that we’ll be using when we do finally get to try it all out. And yes, they have adaptive triggers.

Announced via a post on the PlayStation blog, the new controllers promise “stronger immersion” thanks to the use of adaptive triggers and haptic feedback.

But the first thing you’re likely to notice when you see these things is the way they look and, importantly, the way you hold them.

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.

The list of features covers pretty much what you’d expect, starting with those adaptive triggers. Next, haptic feedback will make it feel like you’re interacting with textured objects and whatnot. It all sounds very impressive, but there’s more.

Sony says the new controllers will detect your fingers without you pressing anything and the controller will be tracked by a new VR headset, rather than a camera on your TV.

That’s as much as Sony shared, though. We have no pricing, no availability windows, nothing. But what we do know is enough to whet the appetite. Now we wait.
