Apparently, Sony is working on a series of hardware for its game console, playstation 5. This includes a “pro” controller for PS5, which it plans to officially unveil soon. All this said, there will be no new PS5, at least this year.
Insider Tom Henderson revealed that a source close to Sony’s gaming console division showed him images of a prototype of the upcoming controller. The new controller retains the same basic styling as the existing PlayStation 5 controller, but will have a number of features. This will include removable stick units, which can be changed using the buttons below the analog sticks. It will also have trigger stops and apparently a pull handle. The Pro controller will also have flappy paddles, similar to what we see on the Microsoft Xbox Elite wireless controller. Henderson also revealed that Sony’s new hardware is known as the PS5 Pro Controller, though it’s unclear at the moment if that will be the official name. It will also have some significant software updates over the current generation of PS5 controllers.Henderson also revealed that Sony’s gaming division plans to reveal the controller soon, with the possibility of it launching in late June or July. Sony also plans to release other bits of new hardware. This may include a new storage solution that would be used with the SSD slot open. As for the gaming side, Sony will apparently release one of the most anticipated games of the year, God of War: Ragnarok, sometime in November. While it’s unclear when the event will take place, it’s likely that Sony will announce the launch date at the same event where Sony will launch its new set of PlayStation 5 hardware. Sony held its latest State of Play live stream. earlier this month. It featured reveals and updates focused primarily on third-party PlayStation games, though it did also show off Sony’s PlayStation VR2 game Horizon Call of the Mountain. Via: FirstPost
