Sony has given us our first look at the new controllers that’ll work in tandem with the yet-to-be-fully-unveiled PS VR 2 headset.
A “unique” orb design will allow players to hold the controllers naturally without any “constraints”. Meanwhile, the finger touch detection feature can “detect your fingers without any pressing in the areas where you place your thumb, index, or middle fingers”. This will allow users to make “more natural gestures” with their hands during gameplay.
Each controller houses one analogue stick, two interface buttons (Triangle/Square on the left, Cross/Circle on the right) and an adaptive trigger (L2/R2). There’s also a new “grip” (L1/R1) button located on the main handle of each controller that can be used to pick up in-game objects.
The controllers will be entirely tracked by the new VR headset, and also feature haptic feedback and the adaptive triggers found on the PS5’s DualSense controller. You can read the reveal blog in its entirety here.
