Earlier this week, a black PS5 DualSense controller was spotted online. The controller showed off a black shell design instead of the white. Further proof of the controller’s existence was backed up by photos of the device. Full top-down and side images appeared on a tweet. This controller has now recently been certified in Tawain further confirming its existence.
Two PS5 DualSense controllers have now been certified in Taiwan. This includes the white model and the recently-leaked black DualSense model. You can take a look at the certification on the official site. It seems the leaked photos from earlier this week are actually part of the certification process. If you click on “equipment photos” PDF, you can see the photo listings there.
Keep in mind that Sony has yet to announce a black edition of any PS5 hardware. However, this is now the third time we have seen the tech pop up. Previously, a Sony marketing ad leaked a black and red PlayStation 5 console. Then, these photos popped up earlier this week. Now, the controller gets certified. It is all looking rather peculiar.
The PS5 DualSense controller is a big deal for Sony. The device includes a range of state-of-the-art features including haptic feedback, noise cancellation microphones, adaptive triggers and 3D audio. Sony revealed earlier this week that the device is required for all PlayStation 5 games and users cannot use the DualShock 4 to play new games. In addition, new 360-degree photos were released and sources claim the controller includes double the battery life of the current DualShock 4.
