Well i was always fed up that the DS4 didn't offer a wireless solution for microphone from the start, the wired default one was low quality and could break at any time and the wire itself is bothering for brisk movements. So I was playing online without microphone the majority of PS4 gamers too. Not only that but Sony didn't allow normal bluetooth headsets from phones to work on PS4 like on PS3 and forced people to buy their expensive metal headsets. Now I am happy with this, not just for voice assitant, but that everyone can voice chat in games and maybe many games wil include vocie commands as part of their gameplay by default now.So that 'hole' in the Dualshock 5... is a microphone. Seems to wrap around the front and back of the controller.
As you can see, the solid line is the bit around the microphone. The dotted line is a partial/incomplete/'representative' design that's not part of the registration. There are more pics at the link.
What happened to the dual speakers from both sides that were talked about? I hope this is not the final design, a dual speaker would make things much better, remember the haptic feedback is tied to the sounds coming from the controller to add more immersion.
Also I really hope a touch screen is included too.
I don't dig the bigger design but if it's to allow a touch screen then i am fine with it.
I think this needs its own thread tbh.
Edit: The link doesn't display anything. Was this removed after it got discovered?
It says in Japenese: The specified information does not exist.
Edit 2 : Look closely, there is a new slit on top of the touchpad/touch screen. What is it? another microphone or another speaker?
