The beast appears again and this makes console game lovers salivate as this means that devkits are floating everywhere and game publishers are doing all sorts of things, including making next gen games. This time the curious thing has the next-gen controller in sight too.
As seen in the last leaked images, the devkit has giant V with exhaust all round, tons of port in front. There are System Init, and Network Init buttons which is not in a typical retail unit.
The giant V although is designed for optimizing cooling of this machine, also symbolizes the next iteration of game console i.e. PlayStation 5 as the name has already been confirmed by Sony.
Coming to the controller, the Dualshock 5 (well let’s just say this is the logical name of the next controller) does not have the light bar as seen in Dualshock 4. The trigger also looks a bit larger and the sticks are a bit different too.
It also expected that the new controller will have inbuilt speaker & mic, a bigger battery which can be charged with USB C, triggers gives more feedback (a.k.a. HD rumble by Nintendo)
