"You will fee the tension in the triggers when pulling a bow"

Now that is a good feature

Welshy470d ago

It would be cool if it's something you could manually change in settings too. Make the triggers tighter and require less of a push to fire for competitive shooters for example.

darthv72470d ago

Should make for some interesting play throughs. This is a game changer.

Outside_ofthe_Box470d ago (Edited 470d ago )

Would be cool in my opinion if for shooters, developers were to tie in the trigger pressure into the guns' rate of fire so that each gun would have a different feel when pushing the trigger button.

I cant wait to buy ps5 day one. So many innovations that will enhance gaming experience

Knew it was holiday 2020. We should expect a February 2020 PS event like they did with PS4. 2nd time MS and Sony will launch in the same time frame. Great for us gamers all around, stoked. Hopefully they show off the new controller as well.

bouzebbal470d ago

Think it's a lame reveal.. PS4 reveal was a much more wow moment.. Came out of nowhere.

Rimeskeem470d ago

I would assume it could be used by devs to make certains guns have a longer or shorter pull time as well as different rumble variances.

RememberThe357470d ago

That's a cool thought. Wonder if they could simulate trigger break for shooters?

Sounds like it works very well (from the Wired article):

"Combined with an improved speaker on the controller, the haptics can enable some astonishing effects. First, I play through a series of short demos, courtesy of the same Japan Studio team that designed PlayStation VR's Astro Bot Rescue Mission. In the most impressive, I ran a character through a platform level featuring a number of different surfaces, all of which gave distinct—and surprisingly immersive—tactile experiences. Sand felt slow and sloggy; mud felt slow and soggy. On ice, a high-frequency response made the thumbsticks really feel like my character was gliding. Jumping into a pool, I got a sense of the resistance of the water; on a wooden bridge, a bouncy sensation."

https://www.wired.com/story...

Edit: looks like they are two separate features, haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, but both help to increase immersion.

RpgSama470d ago

That sounds AMAZING!!, I'm really, really, really excited about Next-Gen, much more than from the last one to this one.

jaymacx470d ago

I was wondering how Sony was gonna improve on their controller. Now I am totally excited about it.. if they improve the battery life , it will be a perfect controller.

sampsonon470d ago (Edited 470d ago )

@jaymacx
"if they improve the battery life , it will be a perfect controller."

i never understood this complaint.
i bought a $20 charging docking station and two controllers.
they are always charged. one gets low i place it on the docking station, grab the other one and that's it.

the console also came with a charging cable that reaches 7 ft.

so yeah

Muzikguy470d ago

@sampsonon

That's nice. When it works for you I guess. I have 2 controllers as well with one always charging so I can switch if it dies. The original one that came with my system dies in like 3 hours. The other one I can play for days. Improved battery would be great. I hope they leave the touchpad off maybe that'll help

jib470d ago

@sampsonon

What's so hard to understand about people wanting a longer battery life? I would have to spend $50 to match the convenience you have. I think it's safe to assume that most people would rather have controllers last as long as they did last gen where you could go 1-3 weeks before having to charge

Other than that for me, the controller's perfect. Anything beyond a better battery is a bonus for next gen

rainslacker470d ago (Edited 470d ago )

Yeah. Haptic stuff can be pretty impressive. It can take some getting used to since we've all trained to be used to a single resistance on a controller. This is much more controllable than just changing the update variable in code, as it gives a direct tactile feel to the user, as opposed to an annoying change to what you get used to in the game itself

@Sampson

I just use my phone charging cord and keep playing with the same controller. It's on the table next to my couch anyways

The Wood470d ago

I think the speaker is underrated and underused. You could do some kool s#it with that

The Wood470d ago

I'll be using the same cord I used to charge my phone just like I was the beginning of this gen. Type C is pretty much the most used charge method in the house

"While a number of studios already had their PS5 devkits, the controller prototypes began rolling out much more recently, and no one is ready to name specific titles they're developing for the PS5. "We're working on a big one right now," says Marco Thrush, president of Bluepoint Games, which most recently worked on last year's PS4 remake of Shadow of the Colossus. "I'll let you figure out the rest.""

Demon Souls for PS5 confirmed!!!!!

InKnight7s470d ago

It could be of JRPGs like Legend of Dragoon, Metal Gear Solid or anything else. Demon Souls is easy task for software to handle it by their own.

RpgSama470d ago

@InKnight7s

Don't say things like Legend of Dragoon to me, don't play with my heart that way :(.

Right Hyped asf I love when new consoles release caaaanttt wait! Console gaming for life!

goldwyncq470d ago

This could be a game changer if done right. Imagine a game in the same vein as Heavy Rain or Detroit implementing this feature in certain scenarios -- like having to push the trigger hard enough in order to perfectly execute some actions.

alexg587470d ago

Just please at least double the battery

Spacemagic470d ago

Horizon 2 feature confirmed lol

KaiPow470d ago

This is the evolution to Nintendo's HD rumble that I've been wanting.

Imortus_san470d ago

So they are going to do what the Xbox One controllers have done since launch?

Kribwalker470d ago

yeah. I love the feature and hopefully more devs start using it

IRetrouk470d ago

No lol not even close, the xbox controller has haptic triggers, that's it.

AnubisG470d ago

That is amazing and the new "rumble" feature sounds grear as well. I can't wait to hold one in my hands.

xVOLTx470d ago

Sounds like a terrible idea.

God of War 5 and HZD sequel will probably be announced next E3.

leejohnson222470d ago

Definitely hzd maybe too soon for God of war but I wouldn't complain.
Be good to see something from insomniac and others. I would like new ips

Welshy471d ago

Should be interesting to see how PS5 launch titles utilize the new features on the controller, especially the 1st part games.

Killzone Shadowfall and The Playroom at PS4 launch were alot of fun to mess around with the new camera/controller input.

robtion470d ago

Sorry but can anyone tell me what holiday 2020 means? I assume this is a US thing? Is it June?

derektweed1470d ago

It means the run up to Christmas were people usually buy a lot of stuff. Especially games and games consoles for their kids.

Welshy470d ago (Edited 470d ago )

It's US term for anywhere between October and December generally.

Leeroyw470d ago

I'm going to show up to your games room with the Cheaters film crew.
