I hate white. Begs for dirt. Gimmie black or transparent blue. I turn off rumble and haptic everything. I just want to use the most basic functions. The exception being the share button. I hope the batt life is 30 hours plus. God, this thing is going to be $100, isn't it? Stop making controllers so fucking expensive!

Some of the responses in this thread are surprising. You'd think the controller was radically different from last gen or its competitors based on them, not the gradual aggregate of the industry it looks like to me. I see elements of the DualShock 4, Xbox One controller, Pro controller, and even a bit of that old Boomerang prototype. I like the futuristic color scheme, though that mock up looks good too. Makes me think the console itself will look more interesting than a minimal black box this time too. Interesting we haven't seen the back of the controller yet. Any word on any back buttons?

Honestly, I think 'how it looks' is tertiary to 'how it feels' and 'how it works'. I personally think the Xbox One controller is ugly as hell and I'm not a fan of the Switch controller either, but both are very comfortable. I think this Ps5 controller looks similar to those so I am pretty sure it's gonna be comfortable as hell! that's what matters.



I got it all, baby! 

PS4, Switch, WiiU, XBO, PC
Vita, 3DS, Android

Top 6 this generation: 
Bloodborne, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, God of War, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Dark Souls III, Red Dead Redemption II

Love the look. Don't care much about the new features, but I'll give them a chance to leave me unimpressed. Not that it sounds bad or anything. I just tend to think I'll play in the most "traditional" way possible if given the option. Sexy though. If weren't against god's law, I'd make it my wife.

Give us the coloured face buttons and it'd definitely be an improvement, but overall it's still... nah.

Only way this could be perfect is making it PS1 grey. I love LOVE LOOOOOOVE that classic color home button logo. Shame it's not the real thing. I hate that companies now just want boring white or black logos. It's depressing. Bring color back!

That looks different. Hopefully it's comfortable to hold.



Looks kinda weird, I wish they would’ve moved the right stick too



Love it.

Would prefer less contrasting dualtone for launch; white/light grey, Black/grey, White/Black

Glad they evolved the form factor too.

Feature set is looking nice, adaptive triggers & haptic feedback will really be immersive. I just hope developers start using the gyroscope now for optional aiming.



In terms of shape it's a step in the right direction. But is still lagging behind the xbone controller and switch pro controller. I'm not sure why Sony is so adverse to modernising controllers. Even Nintendo realises that Microsoft had it right with the 360 controller, and Nintendo can be so stubborn when it comes to these things.
Overall it looks fine and looks like it'll work fine, not bad, not great, just ok.

By "modernizing" are you referring the the analog stick placement?
