Well, now we have a new patent popping up, and this time it is for the DualShock controller design. The controller improved the buttons and analog sticks for convenience and use, and created the integrated touch panel.
Hackaday An original PlayStation 3 controller design was quickly shelved after being met with a great deal of criticism. It's rumored that the PlayStation 5 controller will utilize a USB-C port, which means this patent might be showing a redesign of the current model instead.
One of the major changes immediately apparent in the provided images is that of additional buttons on the back of the controller.
That's not to say this design is final. Rather, the new buttons will feel right at home where fingers are often placed when regularly holding a DualShock controller. The buttons might relocate somewhere else on the controller once everything is set, based on the patent's notes.
Could its functionality be moving to the touchbar?

At this point, however, it is still unclear if the patent is really for PlayStation 5. The buttons are similar to the new DualShock 4 attachment that Sony is releasing on January 23rd that adds programmable buttons to the back, according to Engadget. The new controller looks quite similar to the current gen DualShock 4 controller with a couple of extra buttons along with the removal of the PS button.
