The PS5 Controller Might Have Just Been Revealed Through a Patent

The Japanese patent website might have just unveiled the DualShock 5.

It's no secret that the PlayStation 5 is real, and arriving near Holiday 2020. Today, a Japanese patent website might have just revealed a first look at the redesigned DualShock 5.

The listing on the Japanese patent website reveals all the images you can see below. The design for the DualShock 5 below doesn't feature the DualShock 4's light bar, but it does have larger triggers and a USB-C port for charging.

You might remember that earlier this year, a Wired article revealed details on the PS5's controller. Said to have "haptic feedback" with "adaptive triggers," the images above certainly seem to fit the description of the PS5 controller first detailed in Wired's article.

In the same article earlier this year from Wired, Sony revealed hardware details of the PS5. Chiefly, it features a 8 core AMD 7nm Zen 2 processor, ray tracing support with AMD Navi GPU, support for the current PSVR headset, and 8K support, although it's unclear if the latter is in native resolution, or through upscaling.

More recently, Bluepoint Games have teased their involvement in a "big" PS5 title. Masters of the remake, including 2018's Shadow of the Colossus, there's a lot of speculation about the next remaster/remake that Bluepoint could be working on.
