Sony Announces New Next-Gen VR Controllers For The PS5

Sony plans to reveal its new VR controllers for the PS5 today. The controllers bear more semblance to typical VR controllers than the existing PlayStation Move motion controllers.

 

According to reports, they will also include the same adaptive trigger technology found on the DualSense PS5 controller.

Sony aims to fully utilise the tensions in the VR controller triggers, in future VR games. The controllers will also feature haptic feedback and a finger touch detection that will enable them to 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,” Hideaki Nishino, head of platform planning and management at PlayStation said about the feature.

 

According to Nishino, the goal of the VR Controller is to make a giant leap from the current gadgets.

“SIE’s Product, Engineering, and Design teams have collaborated to build our new VR controller from the ground up with the goal of making 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,” he said.

 

The company isn’t planning to launch its VR headset for the PS5 in 2021, however, Sony might begin testing it with game developers soon, according to The Verge.
