Called the DualSense, the PS5 wireless controller is being shipped to game developers now so they can use its unique features in games.
PlayStation says it retained the best features from the DualShock 4, while adding new functions and changing the design for the upcoming PlayStation 5.

Sony says it changed the angle of the hand triggers to make the controller feel smaller than it is, and updated the grip. It’s also reduced the weight of the controller, worked on how to make it retain battery longer and added a built-in microphone array so you can with friends while playing.
The share button has been replaced with a “create” button. “With Create, we’re once again pioneering new ways for players to create epic gameplay content to share with the world, or just to enjoy for themselves,” the PlayStation team said.
