Leaked PS5 Controller Images Give Closer Look At Its Hardware

Nine new photos of a disassembled DualSense have been shared online, and it's given us a good look at the innards of the PlayStation 5's controller.

Sent through Whatsapp and then uploaded to Instagram, the photos show the removed outer casing of the controller as well as the internal hardware of the DualSense.

Sony is boasting a new level of immersion for PlayStation 5 titles, which will be achieved in part owing to the controller's interesting features. For instance, the adaptive triggers will react to what's going on in the game, and will replicate the feeling of pulling a bow string or the firing of a shotgun. And, the haptic feedback has been improved significantly for more specific sensations, like driving a car through sludgy mud.

With these photos, we're able to see how these effects will be executed by the bits and bobs inside the controller. It looks like the two-toned shell of the DualSense splits into three parts: the back, the front, and the black plastic on its arms and around the analogue sticks. Now, I'm not an electrical engineer, but in my opinion, it checks out. As well as the three parts on their own, the images show how the sticks and the triggers are wired into the controller.

For the most part,fans like what they see of the DualSense, but some people are worried about the overall strength of the controller. Admittedly, it's not very clear in these photos, but there are concerns that the triggers will be attached to inflexible and immobile plastic. This is the case in the DualShock, which has led to snapping of the plastic brackets inside the controller, which is a pain to put right.

Nevertheless, the DualSense looks like it is relatively straightforward to break down and build back together again. If there are any issues like the aforementioned, it should be a simple and speedy resolution. Again, these photos do come from an unofficial source, as Sony hasn't showcased its own breakdown of the controller nor the console.

The PlayStation 5 is set to arrive on November 12 or November 19, depending on where you are in the world, and the company still hasn't shown all of its cards. Its September event revealed the existence of Final Fantasy XVI, Hogwarts Legacy, and God of War: Ragnarok, and a number of Japanese YouTubers will be releasing hands-on impressions of the PS5 next week.
