Sony has already confirmed that the company will be launching its next-generation gaming console — Sony PlayStation 5 aka PS5 during the holiday season later this year. Recently, the company also revealed the logo for the same.
However, the company is yet to reveal the hardware design of the upcoming playstation. Now, there are reports coming up about the new controller that Sony will offer along with the PlayStation 5, which will be called DualShock 5.
There are also reports and leaks confirming that the new controller will look very similar to the current DualShock 4 and will be fully compatible with the PS4. Now, new report claims that it will also come with a voice assistant
The claim is further supported by a patent on WIPO which indicates that Sony is putting in a microphone on the controller, making the device capable of interpreting commands and requests while it is in use. This is similar to the functionality of smart speakers like AmazonAlexa support.
But it remains to be seen how powerful this new smart voice commands-based system will be for the controller and what functionalities will it support. We expect to know more about this ahead of the Holiday 2020 launch.
