PlayStation 5 Controller Possibly Revealed In Leaked Images
The next console generation is about to hit us all in the face with a mountain of new hardware, and it looks like there’s plenty to be excited about if the varying speculation turns out to be true. Significantly increased specs and the reintroduction of backwards compatibility have been just a few of the features expected for the system. However one of the more mysterious aspects of the console has been what it and its updated PlayStation 5 controller may look like next time around.
According to a recent set of leaked images, it appears we may have gotten our first look at the controller for the PS5. Posted on Twitter by users Tidux and SUPERSONIC4k, a supposed dev kit for the long-rumored 5th PlayStation has been revealed alongside an unconventional version of a traditional DualShock controller.

While this dev kit clearly wouldn’t be representative of the completed console, it does provide a look at a potential PlayStation 5 controller. In addition to a more rounded, redesigned shape, the peripheral notably features a small, presumably touchscreen, display in place of the touchpad from the current PS4.

As rumors have recently swirled regarding PS5 development kits being out in the wild, a leak such as this may not be that surprising. However, it should be said that there’s also plenty to refute this kind of leak, as recent speculation points to a lack of knowledge on the part of many developers, let alone a wide availability of dev kits. Still, with rumors suggesting a reveal happening within a year’s time, a prototype like this being out there could definitely be possible.
What do you think? Would you be opposed to this PlayStation 5 controller design, or should Sony just use the DualShock 4 again?
