If Sony plans to actually implement a new patent, the PlayStation 5 controller could get an interesting new feature.

There is new speculation about the functionality of the PlayStation 5. A patent recently filed by Sony suggests that the company is working on a controller that measures and evaluates the pulse and perspiration, i.e. the sweat output. More precisely, the handles of the DualShock are specified in said patent, which are equipped with corresponding sensors.
This information is to be forwarded from the console to the game accordingly in order to make adjustments to it. The patent description does not deal with which these are. However, the technology is said to ensure an "immersive and highly interactive experience for gamers". What this looks like in practice can only be speculated. The PlayStation 5 may interpret high pulse combined with sweaty hands as stress and adjust the difficulty of a game in such situations. Another patent has indicated a very similar feature in recent months.

So far, it is known that the DualShock 5 will be equipped with adaptive shoulder buttons that allow developers to provide different resistance depending on the use. In addition, the rumble function is said to have been improved. Sony may have been inspired by the Switch's HD rumble. It is also known that the gamepad's internal speakers are said to provide improved sound.
Another possible patent for the PlayStation 5 has only recently emerged that players could actively face microtransactions if they have difficulties at a certain point in a game (News: PlayStation 5 patent: Is the console constantly advertising microtransactions?) , As always, it should be mentioned that companies regularly secure patents without ultimately using them in this form or at all. Often it's just about securing technologies before the competition might.
