A Sony patent uncovered in the WIPO database by Polygon appears to feature two new programmable buttons rumored to be a last-minute DualShock 5 (DS5) Controller design update for use with the upcoming PS5 Console scheduled to launch late next year alongside Microsoft's Xbox Series X or simply Xbox next-generation console. šŸŽ®

To quote from on further details of this 'input device' patent discovery:

"It essentially states that the PS5 controller will have a selection of new buttons on its back. It will have two big buttons and two smaller buttons that will be divided into pairs, making it so that both the left and right sides of the controller will have a big button and a small button.

These buttons have unique functionalities based on their size. The big buttons, for instance, will work something like knobs. They will adjust the length of the handles of a player's controller depending on how much the player shifts them up or down.

The smaller buttons are a bit more mysterious, meaning Sony gave no real description as to what they do. Apparently, however, whatever the buttons end up doing will make controlling game characters easier by providing more options."

This PlayStation 5 news comes following a leaked image of some PS5 DevKit DualShock 5 Controllers, Japanese Patent DS5 Controller Images, a PlayStation 5 Game Reveal Trailer and recent PS4 Back Button Attachment announcement.

Below is a concept rendition of the PlayStation DualShock Controller Update by Snoreyn via based on the patent (sony-playstation-5-dualshock-update.pdf).
