What is known
Videogames Chronicle spotted a document by peekingon the website of the Japanese Patent Office, which also published schematic illustrations of the gamepad. Judging by the pictures, Sony decided to increase triggers, reduce sticks and add a USB port with a microphone.

Updated technology has already been tested by Wired reporters. In a short “demo” the character ran on various surfaces, and the controller was already creating a “different tactile experience”:
“The sand seemed slow and brittle; the dirt seemedslow and raw. On ice, the high-frequency response made my thumbs really feel like my character was sliding. Jumping into the pool, I felt the resistance of the water; on a wooden bridge - an elastic feeling "
The gamepad was also tested in the Gran Turismo Sport race, launched on the PlayStation 5 for developers:
“Driving along the border between the track and the dirt, Ifelt both surfaces. Doing the same thing on the same road using DualShock 4 on the PS4, this feeling completely disappeared. It’s not that the old-style feedback has turned pale - there hasn’t been any feedback. ”
