YOUR PS5 DualSense controller has 40,000 PlayStation logos on it – but can you spot them?
It turns out that they’re seriously well hidden, but easy enough to spot once you know where to look.
The bizarre quirk was first spotted by The Verge, and confirmed by Sony.
It turns out that the DualSense controller’s grippy handles actually feature a micro-texture of tiny PlayStation icons.
Yes, take a close look and you’ll see that the dots are actually crosses, squares, circles and triangles.
It’s a clever Easter egg for fans that would probably go unnoticed for most.
There are two layers of icons, which The Verge revealed are 15 and 30 microns tall respectively.
It’s just one more reason why the DualSense joypad is so incredible.
The PS5 launched last November with phenomenal success, remaining largely sold out around the world ever since.
A big part of its appeal is the new DualSense controller – a “next gen” joypad.
A single controller comes with the console as standard, but many of you will want a second one for multiplayer games.
What’s special about the DualSense controller is that features “haptic” tech – to let you “feel” the game.
The term “haptic” literally means “relating to touch”, and so it’s about providing better touch feedback to your hands.
This replaces the more traditional rumble system you’d find in typical console joypads.
There are more vibrating motors in your controller (including the triggers and joysticks).
It gives the DualSense what PlayStation calls “a broader range of feedback”.
“Crashing into a wall in a race car feels much different than making a tackle on the football field,” said PlayStation boss Jim Ryan.
“You can even get a sense for a variety of textures when running through fields of grass or plodding through mud.”
The new controller will also feature adaptive triggers – technology built into the L2 and R2 trigger buttons.
Developers are able to program the resistance of these triggers so you can feel the “tactile sensation of drawing a bow and arrow”, for instance.
PlayStation exclusive Astro’s Playroom is one of the first games to feature that new haptic technology.
