Sony launched the Playstation 5 last year, the much-awaited console had some major improvements over the last-gen Playstation 4. However, unlike the Dual Sense controller for the next-gen console, Sony had not made any announcements over the next-gen controller for the Playstation VR as well (Playstation VR is an additional VR headset that users can get to play games in VR). But Sony has finally unveiled its new VR Controller for the Playstation 5.
Talking more about the new controllers themselves, they had previously teased that they are working on a next-generation VR headset for the PlayStation 5 last month, and now they have unveiled the controllers for it.
Sony on its blog post had revealed two black controllers, which they call an Orb shape. They also that there are no constraints with this design and will also allow developers to create unique gameplay experiences with it. They have shared that prototypes of these new VR controllers that would be given to the development community soon.
These next-generation VR controllers from Sony have some interesting features built-in. Some of them include adaptive triggers, haptic feedback, finger touch detection, and tracking as well. Both of these left and right controllers have one trigger button each that comes with notable tension, which is similar to the new DualSense controllers for the PS5. Additionally, Sony also says that the haptic feedback has been optimized for the controller due to its form factor.
There is a tracking ring at the bottom of the VR controller that would let the VR headset track movements. There are five buttons and one analog stick on each controller. The basic triangle, square, and Create buttons are present on the left controller along with a grip button and the trigger. Whereas, on the right controller there are the cross, circle, and Options buttons, along with the grip and trigger buttons.
