As Sony recently revealed, the PlayStation 5 is planned to be released on Holiday 2020. While this also means that there is still a long way to go until we can put our hands on the new console, there are already a bunch of leaks and details about the upcoming Sony console.

And, just recently, a new patent for the PlayStation 5 Controller has been revealed via a Japanse patent office, and along with this new patent is the rough design of the new controller. While this is only a glimpse at the new DualShock controller, we can see a bunch of big changes - while still keeping the shape of the controller similar to the DualShock 4.

You can take a look at the design in the image below:

As we can see in the above design, there are a few changes in the new PlayStation controller - the joysticks are smaller, while the L2/R2 buttons are larger. Along with that, the controller now using USB-C as the charging port, with the light bar removed. However, the design that got revealed in the patent might not be the final design (as we know from the past that the DualShock 3 controller has been changed drastically before the release, with the "boomerang" design being abandoned. The touchpad still remains in the old place, however.

According to Sony in their previous interview about the new controller, it seems that the standard rumble function will be removed, with the haptics feedback being the replacement. The reason for this change is to give the controller a "broader range of feedback" which is similar to the Nintendo Switch's Joy-Con. Meanwhile, the L2/R2 buttons will feature adaptive triggers, so that the button's heaviness might vary depends on the game's on-going action - for example, if you are pushing a heavy object in-game using the L2/R2 buttons for command, the button will be harder to press.

The PlayStation 5, along with the new Xbox Scarlett, will be released in the holiday season of 2020.
