A new controller concept for the upcoming PlayStation 5 console has shown what gamers could be playing with in the near future, and it looks incredible in every way.

The current Dualshock 4 controller, which was designed exclusively for the PlayStation 4, represents a gradual advancement of the Dualshock controller which has been in use since the original PlayStation.

However, this new concept for the as-yet-unannounced Dualshock 5 controller brings some changes that would leave fans drooling if it were real, bringing the series of controllers up several levels.

The new DS5 concept blows its older model out of the water.

The most noticeable immediate change is the shape of the controller, which more closely resembles that of the Xbox 360 or Xbox One, which even many PlayStation players claim to prefer as a bigger, bulkier option.

However, it’s not just the shape that separates this concept from its predecessors. The D-Pad and action buttons look to be upgraded, with a cleaner look, while a high-speed USB-C connection is more accessible for players than the current micro-USB connection.

Most interestingly, though, are some of the accessibility options provided. Interchangeable sticks mean that players can find the optimal comfort and positioning of their thumbs for those long sessions, while removable, remappable back paddles can replicate the actions of face buttons, making playing that slight bit easier.

The controller has various other features that elevate it to the next level, such as honeycomb grips and an audio panel for sound configuration, but the level of accessibility is what really removes this concept from the current Dualshock 4 controller.

The concept seems to take a lot of inspiration from other third-party controller companies with certain features, bringing together the best of the best to create a pad that would delight much of the player base.

We don’t know much about the upcoming PS5, including what the controller will be like, but rumors are swirling that news could be on its way after the console’s splash page was added to the official PlayStation website in early February 2020.

Genshin Impact is home to loads of colorful characters, but you’ll need to spend a lot of Primogems if you wish to increase your chances of obtaining the game’s elusive five-star units. Fortunately, there is an easy way to grab a lot of Primogems without breaking the bank. 

MiHoYo’s free-to-play title, Genshin Impact allows players to explore every inch of its vast open-world completely free of charge. In fact, you can get through the entirety of the game’s current content without spending a penny. However, if you wish to increase your roster of characters and gain access to some incredibly powerful weapons, then you’ll need to score yourself a lot of Primogems.

These twinkling gems are used to purchase the game’s Acquaint Fates and Intertwined Fates, which are then used to Perform Wishes (Gacha). Primogems are also used to refill the game’s energy/stamina system (Original Resin), making them vital to both acquiring new characters and farming the game’s deadly dungeons. While you’ll naturally get this in-game currency as you progress through the game, there is an even easier way to add more Primogems to your account.
