Hands-on images of the PS5 DualSense controller reveal two colour options as Sony confirms software update plans
Sony has already revealed the PS5 DualSense controller, which sparked plenty of discussions online on account of its two-tone colour scheme. However, hands-on images of two versions are now circulating online, supposedly from the FCC. The agency published documentation about the PS5 DualSense controller in April, but testing images remain inaccessible. However, we can just about make out the string "AK8CFIZCT1" on the white controller, which corresponds with the FCC ID for the DualSense.
Sony has not unveiled an all-black version of the DualSense, but the pictures offer a look at it from practically every angle. It seems that the black and two-tone DualSense controllers share the same D-pad and select buttons, which looks unusual on the black model.
It is unclear why Sony is only advertising one edition of the DualSense controller if it has certified two versions with the FCC. Perhaps, the black version will be paired with a limited edition console, although its appearance at the FCC would suggest otherwise. Nonetheless, it has also confirmed that the DualSense will receive software updates. Currently, DualShock 4 controllers get updated via OS updates, but the DualSense will receive dedicated updates instead. This is not anything new for games consoles though as Microsoft and Nintendo already deliver software updates to Xbox and Switch controllers.
