We've heard rumors of PS5 AI Voice Assistance via PlayStation Assistant for PlayStation 5 before, and the latest Sony patent discovery suggests a built-in microphone may be slated for the upcoming DualShock 5 (DS5) Controller to take voice commands featuring the ability to suppress sounds when in use as well. 🎮🎤💬

Here's further details on the recent find from, to quote: "Sony Interactive Entertainment has been granted a new patent earlier today that suggests DualShock 5 to be able to take voice commands through a built-in microphone.

The patented technology aims to control various devices mounted on and connected to the controller while avoiding unintended complications and operations.

The showcased method can be taken as a way to access features on both DualShock 5 and PlayStation 5 by feeding voice commands into the microphone of the controller. The published claims also point out that haptic feedback will indicate the processing status of all voice-related input."

And from the patent, roughly translated: "One embodiment of the present invention is a controller device that is held by a user’s hand, including a microphone, a tactile presentation device that presents a tactile sense to the user’s hand, and a speaker.

While the user is inputting voice from the microphone, the sound of the speaker is suppressed, and tactile presentation control by the tactile presentation device is performed."

Below is a snazzy DualShock 5 (DS5) concept video from Giuseppe Spinelli as well! 😃

This would be an interesting way to bring new commands or potentially pull new menus up, balancing the limited button configurations that come with the game controller (similar to other controllers).

Have always hated the light bar on the PS4 dualshock. Always felt like it drained the battery for no purpose at all. With that said, an increased battery life before charging for the new controller would also be a welcome change.
