Here's What the PlayStation 5's DualSense Looks Like in Someone's Hand

Specifically, Geoff Keighley's hand.

We've seen pictures of the DualSense, the new controller for the forthcoming next-gen Sony console, the PlayStation 5. We've even seen it next to a console. But now we have an idea of what it looks like when it's sitting right there in someone's hands.

Today, Geoff Keighley announced via Twitter that he would be showcasing the DualSense controller tomorrow, doing a hands-on impressions stream as part of the four-month long Summer Game Fest. In the teaser video, he picks up and holds the DualSense, giving us a look at what a real controller looks like in someone's hands, or at least one of Geoff Keighley's hands.

Tune in tomorrow if you want Geoff's impressions. The PS5's new controller, the DualSense, makes use of a number of tangible new features like haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, so I'm not sure how much of a look we'll get at the controller without it being plugged into a game and running live. It's a little hard to vocalize the feeling of whether a controller trigger is truly simulating the tension of a bowstring, for example.

But if you're aching for some PlayStation 5 news following the reveal of the new console's look last month, here's a tidbit of it. Sony has been mostly quiet following its major June showcase, where it debuted the look of the PS5 alongside exclusives like Horizon Forbidden West and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

Xbox, meanwhile, is gearing up for its big games showcase next week, where it will debut a first look at Halo Infinite's campaign. Tomorrow's controller impressions stream is just another reminder that the next-gen consoles, both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, are getting closer and closer to their holiday 2020 launch every day.
