Me, an objective game fan:

This is going to be pretty divisive, I wonder how this will go down.

 

Also me, a 35 year old who spent his teen years surrounded by the absurd early 2000s vapourwave aesthetic, has every PlayStation and is just a pile of hungry nostalgia in a hoodie:

Stop it Sony, I can only get SO erect

Looks alright . It’s all about how it feels in the hand . So long as they follow the improvements they made with the PS4 pad and don’t regress I’ll be happy .

The ascii/logic3/Logitech mashup we deserve

That last one is so deliciously shit. Looking at it is like prodding a mouth ulcer with my tongue. I just can’t help it.

I owned a white PS4 and PS4 Pro do I am delighted by this colour choice. 

 

Loving the look and features of the controller.

I think it looks fabulous and takes some good queues from Xbox while still keeping the PlayStationyness. Just needs to be all white or all black. The two tone is just a kit too sci-fi for my liking.

I like it a lot.

I do have concern over the Home button though. Right now it’s a very pleasant to press or even double press. If it’s recessed then that could be a bit annoying. Would also prefer it to be round because round buttons just depress better.

I assume PS4 controllers will continue to work though? You have to assume the same for wheels n stuff right.

Just noticed the home button.  The PS4 home button is just so nice. Rounded. Easy to press. Not too big. That looks far less pleasant to press. The Xbox one is pretty nasty as it is too flush and needs more of an aimed pointed press down.

So they didn’t go with the built-in extra back buttons? Despite all the speculation that the DS4 back button attachment was a precursor to this.

 

FWIW I don’t like it. Feels a bit too ‘convex’. And the two tone is gash. If it has to be two colours then make mine black and none-more-black please.

Obviously it's not round, but the PlayStation button is raised:

You might note the Options/hamburger and Share/Create buttons aren't as flush as on the DS4, either.

Ah nice one. Well I guess that means the other little bar thing is possibly a light? For charging/power or perhaps the on off for the controller.

God between the clear buttons, the two tone and the blue light it fully looks like a CG render from 2002 of what the PS3 might look like. I really hope the console matches.

I assume it's a mute toggle for the built-in mic. That or it activates the AI assistant there was a patent going around for. Or both.

Looks like the sort of thing 14 year old me would have imagined 40 year old me gaming on!

 

It reminds me a little of a more streamlined, modernised Duke. It has that heft to it. Anyway, the haptics stuff sounds interesting, along with the pressure sensitive triggers. Looking forward to holding one!

 

I must say though, the default look of the controller with it's two tone black and white design might offer some sort of a hint as to what the PS5 itself will look like. Could be quite an unconventional look!

How do people know there's no back buttons? Are there pictures of the back I've not seen?

It’s nice that all those out of work Mad Catz designers found a new home.

Spoiler

 


You’ve made this post twice now, once with words and once with pictures. Any particular reason? BTW, it also looks like the Switch Pro controller and that looks like the Xbox controller too.
