Sony has announced a new, next-gen PlayStation VR headset for the PlayStation 5 – but it’s not stopping there. The platform holder has also confirmed that it’s busy engineering new controllers for its virtual reality device, and that it will “incorporate some of the key features found in the DualSense wireless controller”. That screams haptic feedback and adaptive triggers to us!
The company continued that the new motion control pads will have a “focus on great ergonomics” as well. Hideaki Nishino, a senior vice president of platform planning and management, said on the PlayStation Blog: “That’s just one of the examples of future-proof technology we’re developing to match our vision for a whole new generation of VR games and experiences.”
For the original PSVR, the Japanese giant recycled dated PlayStation 3 technology for its motion control solution, which has aged poorly. We’re anticipating a much more accurate solution for PS5, with added immersion from features like the aforementioned haptic feedback. What are your hopes and dreams for the next-gen PSVR controller?
