Sony has become a sensation again in the gaming world with its PlayStation 5, and it seems that the company is bringing even more goodies to its PS5. The company announced its new VR controllers for the PS5 today.
The devices are orb-shaped controllers, which look more like typical VR controllers than existing PlayStation Move motion controllers. They also include the same adaptive trigger technology found on the DualSense PS5 controller.
According to sources, the controllers have haptic feedback and finger touch detection features that will let them detect fingers without having to press areas where you rest your thumb, index, or middle fingers.
“This enables you to make more natural gestures with your hands during gameplay.”
Reports also indicate that the new controllers will also include tracking to Sony’s new VR headset via a ring at the controller’s bottom.
“SIE’s Product, Engineering, and Design teams have collaborated to build our new VR controller from the ground up to make a huge leap from current-gen VR gaming. Prototypes of our new VR controller will be in the hands of the development community soon, and we can’t wait to see what ideas they come up with and how the controller helps bring their imagination to life!”
For now, we have not seen the new VR headset, which Sony designed for its PS5, but sources indicate that it has an improved field of view, resolution, and even a single cord to make it easier to use.
Sony isn’t planning to launch its VR headset for the PS5 in 2021, but it’s clear the company is getting ready to test it with game developers soon.
