Sony has officially declared that the awaiting PS5 will arrive at the end of 2020, together with a brand new PS5 controller to complement it.
Despite the new features that have been added to the controller, it also comes with the DualShock 4, with some minor aesthetic adjustments.
There are many questions floating around about the PS5’s pad. In this guide, we’re going to tell you Everything You Need to Know About the controller.
PS5 Controller Release Date
The Sony PS5 controller will be released together with the PlayStation 5 during the “Holiday” period. Sometime between October and December 2020.
We’re expecting that the PS5 controller to work not only on the PlayStation 5 but also with computers.
How Much is PS5 Controller
Honestly speaking, we don’t know yet. But, the PlayStation 5 will come with at least one ps5 controller when you buy the console, but we aren’t sure how much they will be individual.
Considering that official PS4 controllers have an average price of $59.99, we assume the cost will be slightly higher.
PS5 Controller Design
Firstly, the controller will replace normal rumble with far more advanced haptic reactions. Instead of the whole controller vibrating as we’ve all become used to, it will be capable of providing different type of tactile sensations.
For example, if you’re playing snowboarding game and you’re running around on the ice, you’ll be able to “feel” that the surface is slippery.

Next up is adaptive triggers. The L2 and R2 buttons on the controller will “provide varying levels of resistance” to further glue you in the game’s world.
Rumour has it that there will be a microphone on the controller. If this does turn out to be true, it means we can use voice commands on the controller with no need for an external mic.
PS5 Controller Battery Life
It seems that the controller will come with improved battery life compared to the PS4 pad. It will also be accompanied with a more up to date charger cable which is a USB Type-C connector.
