News | Leaked photos of PlayStation 5 controller show battery capacity

Leaked photos of the Dualsense controller for PlayStation 5 may show the device's battery capacity. The battery is said to contain 1560 mAh.

The photos come from Twitter user Galaxy-666, who claims to make accessories for console makers like Sony and Microsoft. The controller is currently being tested to make peripherals compatible.

If the figures are correct, the Dualsense has about one and a half times more battery capacity than the Dualshock 4, which has a battery of 1000 mAh. According to previous rumors, the controller lasts three to four hours longer than the Dualshock 4.

Sony has not yet officially released specifications or price of the Dualsense. The controller is included with the PlayStation 5, which will be released this fall.

News | Upcoming PS4 accessory adds two buttons to DualShock 4

Sony is launching an accessory for DualShock 4 controllers next year that allows PS4 users to use two extra buttons.

The product is called the Back Button Attachment and fits under any DualShock 4 controller. The accessory has two buttons that can be set to act as, for example, an R1, R2, circle or triangle button. In addition, an OLED display is built in to provide information about the settings, which can also be used to switch between three profiles. The Back Button Attachment also includes an additional connection for a headset or headset. Sony announced this via their official PlayStation Blog.

In Europe, the accessory launches on February 14 for € 29.99.

News | Sony is applying for a patent for a possible PlayStation 5 controller

A patent from Sony Interactive shows a new PlayStation controller. Possibly this is the design of the DualShock 5.

The designs from the patent were issued by the Japanese patent office and found by VGC. The controller has not yet been given an official name, but everything indicates that this is the DualShock 5. After all, the images exactly match the rumors.

If these design images are correct, we can assume that the light strip has been removed from the DualShock 4. Furthermore, it can be seen that the shoulder buttons are slightly enlarged, but like the sticks. In addition, it seems that there is a USB port at the bottom of the controller, where the headphone connection used to be.

In a comparison scheme found on ResetEra, we see that the DualShock 5 has a built-in microphone that is located somewhere at the bottom of the controller.

As stated earlier, there is no mention of the fact that this is the DualSchock 5. It is also possible that it is a new version of the DualSchock 4. But with the arrival of the new PlayStation generation, it seems safe to assume that the patent will hit the next generation controller.

In addition, photos of the PS5 devkit were popping up and the release date of the PS5 was communicated by tech giant Sony. However, nothing was released about the controller, until perhaps today.
