The Summer Game Fest will have a special showcase tomorrow in that the upcoming PS5’s controller, the DualSense, will have a segment on it detailing to consumers what the controller is capable of doing next-gen. The event planned for July 17th, 2020, will be hosted by Geoff Keighley at 9:00 A.M. PT / 12:00 P.M. ET.
If you don’t know, the upcoming controller will cut down on size and weight to become more “inclusive.” In other words, the new “ergonomic” controller isn’t designed specifically for male hands, but for females, children, and other “diverse” handshapes.
If you want to know more about this controller that will be for “current year” goers and “diverse” people, then know that Hideo Kojima’s more than ambiguous buddy, Mr. Keighley, will give folks that tune into said digital event a rundown on all things DualSense.
This news comes from a recent tweet from Keighley himself:
