Sony hasn't officially unveiled the PlayStation 5 console design yet but yesterday they gave us the first official look at the upcoming DualSense controller for the console.

In the company's press release, they promised that the new generation console and its controller will give players more heightened immersion into games. This will be accomplished through haptic feedback and adaptive L2 and R2 triggers. For some players, the new built-in microphone array will also be a welcome addition. The new piece of equipment has also done away with the "Share" button from the PS4 and added a "Create" button which Sony promises to share more information about closer to launch. 

Aesthetically the controller arrives in a two-tone configuration for the first time and is less block-like than previous generations. The light bar has also been moved from the rear panel on the PS4 controller to the sides of the top on the new one.

PlayStation 5 is slated for a Holiday 2020 release so stay tuned for more information and the official console reveal. In related news, Sony has donated over $100 million globally to help provide aid during COVID-19.
