- Sony has revealed new controllers for its next-gen VR system for PlayStation 5 consoles.
- The new VR controller enables players to feel and interact with games in the best way.
- The controllers will be able to detect your fingers through touch-sensitive areas where you place your thumb, index, and middle fingers.
The first thing you’ll notice with the 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.
The new VR controller enables players to feel and interact with games in a much more visceral way. There are several features, including key features from the DualSense controller, which match with the player’s expectations in the best way.
PlayStation 5 VR controllers: Specifications
1. Finger touch detection
The controller can detect your fingers without any pressing in the areas where you place your thumb, index, or middle fingers. This enables you to make more natural gestures with your hands during gameplay.
2. Action buttons/analog sticks
The Left controller contains one analog stick, the triangle, and square buttons, a “grip” button (L1), a trigger button (L2), and Create button.
The Right controller contains one analog stick, the cross and circle buttons, a “grip” button (R1), trigger button (R2), and Options button. The “grip” button can be used to pick up in-game objects.
3. Adaptive triggers
Each VR controller (Left and Right) includes an adaptive trigger button that adds palpable tension when pressed, similar to what’s found in the DualSense controller.
If you’ve played a PS5 game, you’ll be familiar with the tension in the L2 or R2 buttons. When you take that kind of mechanic and apply it to VR the experience is amplified to the next level.
4. Haptic feedback
The new controller will have haptic feedback optimized for its form factor, making every sensation in the game world more impactful, and textured.
When you’re traversing through a rocky desert, you’ll feel the extraordinary visual and audio experience.
The VR controller is tracked by the new VR headset through a tracking ring across the bottom of the controller.
