PS4 Back Button Attachment PlayStation 4 1

Do you remember the DualShock 4’s Back Button Attachment? It was a huge deal when it was revealed in late 2019, with many assuming Sony would add rear paddles to the then-unannounced PlayStation 5 controller. Of course, that never turned out to be the case, but the programmable accessory was still extremely popular as it allowed for improved control in titles where it pays to keep your thumbs focused on the analogue sticks.

Now a patent filed last summer by Sony Interactive Entertainment and publicly published this week has fans thinking a similar peripheral could be in the pipeline for the DualSense. Judging by the diagrams and the abstract, the documentation describes a product identical to the DualShock 4’s Back Button Attachment, so we’re going to go out on a limb and assume it’s related to that. However, we certainly wouldn’t be surprised to see the manufacturer revisit the idea on the PS5.
