Patent for new PlayStation controller surfaces

Patent for new PlayStation controller surfaces

Sony has patented another new PlayStation controller. The design is slightly different from the design described in the patent presented in November. As a result, some believe the company can offer a premium version of the controller when it releases the PS5 next year.

Microsoft now offers a premium version of the Xbox controller called Xbox Elite. Sony can consider this.

The new PlayStation controller has been explained

The patent for the new PlayStation controller has been registered with the World Intellectual Property Organization and was discovered by Business Insider. The patent controller is very similar to the DualShock 4 controller on the PS4. However, it includes an additional set of buttons at the bottom.

It is believed that the additional buttons can be programmed in a manner similar to the $ 30 attachment that was recently introduced by Sony for the PS4 controller. In this case, the new PlayStation controller is the premium version because it combines standard controller functions with functions that cost $ 30.

The new PlayStation controller is also equipped with a micro-B USB charger that fits the Dual Shock 4 controller. However, Sony has previously said that the PS5 controller will use a USB-C charging cable and the USB-C connector shown in the picture for other patents for other PlayStation controllers on November.

Previous patent for PS5 controller

Video Games Chronicle launched a patent application for other PlayStation controllers in Japan in November, although an error message is now displayed when an attempt is made to download the link. The fact that the controller in the November patent has a USB-C port shows that, like the controller in the newer patent, it is designed for PS5 instead of PS4.

Sony has also revealed a bit of luck for the PS5 controller, which supports haptic feedback that can be changed by game developers to make many different things look different in the game. The patent shows that the controller also removes the colored light bar above the PS4 controller. The light bar looks good, but it also discharges the controller battery and shortens play time.
