Sony has announced the launch of its new VR controller for the PS5 in a blog post yesterday. It has a unique "orb" design that will allow more natural control during VR gaming.

There are several features like the adaptive trigger technology that is derived from the PS5 DualSense controller. Hideaki Nishino, senior vice-president and head of platform planning and management at PlayStation says that these features match their "vision for what next-generation VR games can be."

The controllers also feature haptic feedback, and finger touch detection that will let them detect fingers without having to press areas where you rest your thumb, index, or middle fingers. “This enables you to make more natural gestures with your hands during gameplay”, he said.

The VR controller is tracked by the new Sony VR headset through a tracking ring across the bottom of the controller, boasting better ergonomics and further improvements than the current PS Move controllers.

“SIE’s Product, Engineering, and Design teams have collaborated to build our new VR controller from the ground up with a goal of making a huge leap from current-gen VR gaming,” says Nishino. “Prototypes of our new VR controller will be in the hands of the development community soon, and we can’t wait to see what ideas they come up with and how the controller helps bring their imagination to life!”
