In early October, Wired had an exclusive in-depth look at the PlayStation 5, which included an overview of its controller.
The first images of the PlayStation 5 controller have surfaced in a Sony patent application filed in Japan.
The images were published on the Japanese patent office earlier today, and match a previous description of the pad reported by Wired, in which the peripheral is labelled as looking "an bad lot like the PS4's DualShock 4". Back then, it was stated that "an unlabelled matte-black doohickey that looks an very bad lot like the PS4's DualShock 4" was being sent to the developers, but some internal changes were noted.
This will allow game designers to build in different levels of resistance to the button depending on how it is being used in game.

Overall, it seems like Sony is making a rounder controller for a better grip. The last change would be the improved microphone, which is highlighted in the patent design description.
Besides the microphone, there are other notable changes to the design as well. In an interview with Wired Magazine, Sony President Jim Ryan and system architect Mark Cerny described some of the new console's most important new features, including a solid state hard drive for much faster loading times and haptic feedback for the PlayStation 5 controller. As we dive deeper, we find that the light bar may possibly be removed, as the top part of the controller only has a charging port.

The controller featured in the patent retains the same general design as the DS4, however, including two short joysticks positioned along the bottom edge and a large touchpad in the center.
