In context: Purported images of Sony’s PlayStation 5 developer console
have been making the rounds since late 2019, portraying a device that
looks more like an Alienware-branded PC than a traditional game console.
While this isn’t likely to be the form that the final hardware takes
when it arrives later this year, most seem to agree that the prototype
seen in the images is legitimate.
Now, we’re getting our first look at what the accompanying DualShock 5 controller might look like.
Multiple outlets are sharing images claiming to be from a “cleaner” who
presumably works for a game studio with access to a PS5 prototype. The
images reveal a controller that’s not all that different from the
DualShock 4 although if you look closely, you’ll spot some subtle
differences (like the fact that there aren’t any labels on the buttons).
The leak also more or less lines up with what we saw from a gamepad patent a few months back.
As for the console itself, it looks roughly identical to what we’ve seen
in earlier leaks which, if nothing else, boosts the credibility of this
Sony probably won’t have much to say about this at CES but you never
know, maybe we’ll get lucky? Sony’s CES press conference is scheduled
for tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern and can be streamed live on their website.
