Sony Reveals New PlayStation 5 DualSense Controller

After Microsoft revealed its next-gen gaming system in the Xbox Series X, many people have been impatiently waiting for Sony to unveil what they’ve been working on. The wait is over as we at least have images of the Sony PlayStation 5 controller. Introduced as the DualSense controller, this device goes in a different direction than the normal DualShock controllers and capitalizes on the trail that the DualShock 4 for PS4 has blazed.

The haptic feedback function of this wireless controller will utilize the sense of touch when playing video games. This means that the controller will react to certain situations during gameplay. The L2 and R2 will come equipped with adaptive triggers for better tension when playing shooters where you have to draw your weapon. To make the DualSense feel smaller, the hand triggers and grip have been slightly updated as well. One major advantage of this updated controller is the fact that the battery life will improve despite all the new features.

The “Share” button has been replaced by the “Create” button and a built-in microphone has also been added. Sony plans to share more information on these new additions as more hardware news is announced.

As far as cosmetics goes, PlayStation has opted for a two-toned white and black color scheme which is far different than past design of just one solid color. This final design is the result of several concepts and hundreds of mockups over the last few years.

Take a look at the images above and check back with us for more info.

The rumored image shows a shirtless Travis Scott skin wearing a pair of his Air Jordan 1 ‘Cactus Jack’ sneakers, platinum jewelry and brown pants. There is a stipulation as these may not be the real deal and HypeX says that they’re still asking where the source got the image.

E3 2020 Has Officially Been Canceled Over Coronavirus Fears

It appears that organizers of E3, the biggest video game conference in America, have canceled the event due to the coronavirus epidemic. Although the event was supposed to take place in June in Los Angeles, the chances of holding a large scale program would be too great of an ordeal to risk with no cure for the virus.

ESA’s statement:

“After careful consultation with our member companies regarding the health and safety of everyone in our industry – our fans, our employees, our exhibitors and our longtime E3 partners – we have made the difficult decision to cancel E3 2020.”

“Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our fans and supporters. But we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today.”

ESA will be reaching out directly to exhibitors and attendees of the event about giving refunds. On the bright side, there are plans to produce an online event to provide the latest news and announcements in June.
