The PS5 controller has been officially revealed, so there isn't much need for a PS5 controller leak right now. But if you're wondering whether there is some unofficial info that you need to know about, you've come to the right place!

From an official standpoint, we already know that the PS5 controller is called the DualSense, and it will have some fancy features like adaptive triggers and a built-in microphone array. Other design details that you don't need a PS5 controller leak to know about include haptic feedback and brand new Create button!

PS5 controller leak details

One interesting PS5 controller leak suggests that the DualSense controller might not be the only peripheral that comes with your PS5.

A patent from Sony that circulated around the web seems to suggest that the PS5 could also come with a PS5 robot companion that will talk to the player, sense your feelings and react accordingly.

If this patent comes to fruition and Sony does package a robot toy of some sort with the PS5, it's interesting to ponder how this product will interact with the DualSense controller.

Perhaps you will talk to the robot using the built-in microphone array on the controller, for instance. Or maybe the robot will be able to pick up your controller and show you how to use it! Anything is possible at this stage, though, so we'll just keep speculating on this until the next PS5 controller leak happens!
