The PlayStation 5 Controller Features Blink-And-You’ll-Miss-It Detail

The PlayStation 5 has now been revealed to the world, but there’s more to the console – and more specifically – its DualSense controller – than first meets the eye. The internet has spotted an incredibly tiny detail from the console’s reveal – and it’s a true testament to just how much care and thought has been put into the thing.

As spotted by multiple people across social media (seemingly starting with Shinobi602), the grip-side of the new DualSense controller isn’t just your generic grip-like base. It’s actually dotted with countless miniature PlayStation button symbols: the circle, X, triangle and square.

Check it out in the tweets below (but you might need your glasses on).

It’s not just the DualSense which has gotten the design though, as it seems the console, the headset and the PlayStation 5 camera all share the same feature. How neat!

In case you’ve not yet secured your pre-order, both editions of PS5 will roll out in select markets including North America and Japan on November 12, followed by Europe and additional regions on November 19.
