We weren't particularly in love with the design of Sony's PS5 DualSense controller when it first emerged in 2021. But it's won us round over the last couple of years after proving to be extremely comfortable and ergonomic. And if a new patent is anything to go by, it could soon become offer an even more immersive gaming experience.

Sony has patented a new controller featuring analogue sticks with built-in force feedback. This could react to the game you're playing, with the sticks becoming harder or easier to move depending on the game, or offering extra vibration. Sony has since revealed the DualSense Edge Wireless Controller, its first pro controller for PS5. (Feeling lucky? Check out the latest PS5 restock news.)
