It's currently the most liked gaming related tweet in history. Deeno had a meltdown at GAF before he got banned.

After thoughtful consideration, we decided to keep much of what gamers love about DualShock 4 intact, while also adding new functionality and refining the design. Based on our discussions with developers, we concluded that the sense of touch within gameplay, much like audio, hasn’t been a big focus for many games. We had a great opportunity with PS5 to innovate by offering game creators the ability to explore how they can heighten that feeling of immersion through our new controller. This is why we adopted haptic feedback, which adds a variety of powerful sensations you’ll feel when you play, such as the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud. We also incorporated adaptive triggers into the L2 and R2 buttons of DualSense so you can truly feel the tension of your actions, like when drawing a bow to shoot an arrow.
For the buttons, you’ll notice there is no longer a “Share” button as we had with DualShock 4. Don’t worry – it’s not going away. In fact, we’ve built upon the success of our industry-first Share button to bring you a new “Create” button feature. With Create, we’re once again pioneering new ways for players to create epic gameplay content to share with the world, or just to enjoy for themselves. We’ll have more details on this feature as we get closer to launch.

DualSense also adds a built-in microphone array, which will enable players to easily chat with friends without a headset – ideal for jumping into a quick conversation. But of course, if you are planning to chat for a longer period, it’s good to have that headset handy.
Now, let’s talk about the colors. Traditionally our base controllers have a single color. As you can see, we went a different direction this time around, and decided on a two-toned design. Additionally, we changed the position of the light bar that will give it an extra pop. On DualShock 4, it sat on the top of the controller; now it sits at each side of the touch pad, giving it a slightly larger look and feel.

Well, the blue color is achieved by having translucent plastic around that area.

 

But there's no light at the top of the controller, that would've been necessary for the old style of PSVR.

 

It looks solid, I like that the handles look fatter.

They should not have had the dpad be white . That things gonna get filthy, on top of being hideous.  Looks like something nintendo would create for kids.

An all black or white one could look cool.  I'm gonna reserve judgement until I try it though.  It looks like it might be quite nice to hold.

 

I'm interested.... now I just want to see the console design lol

Where the fuck are the colored buttons... Maybe they glow with color when it's on?

Nice observation.  It DOES look like they could be translucent to let light through.  That would be bad ass... but obviously the worry would be battery life.

You guys are dreaming with some of the features you want. The controller that comes with the console will always be relatively budget. They're not going to make a decent controller if it forces them to raise the price of the box by anything significant.
