You Can Now See PS5 Peripherals Spinning on the PlayStation Website
You spin me right round, baby, Right round like a record, baby, Right round round round
While no new and noteworthy details have been revealed for Sony’s upcoming PS5 peripherals, there is now a pretty nifty 360-degree view of 4 PS5 items. You know, in case you want to inspect them some more, or lose yourself in a trance staring at them spinning and realizing you wasted 10 minutes not writing news.
The 360 view is available for the DualSense controller, the Pulse 3D headset, the Media Remote, and the HD camera. The animation is automatic and spins the items along the horizontal axis, so you can’t see underneath the items or above them, but there are other images scattered around the website if you want to venture to those specific areas.
The DualSense controller view gives a good idea of the size and thickness of the new design. However, not everyone is a fan of the bigger style, especially for accessibility concerns. And to make matters worse, Sony announced that PS5 titles will not be compatible with the DualShock 4 because it wants players to experience the full experience that comes with the DualSense.
The Pulse 3D Headset gives you a good representation of those chunky earpads and the sleek curves of the headband. However, I’m surprised there seems to be a lack of Sony and PlayStation branding plastered over it. The headset will be wireless and will have dual noise-canceling microphones, USB-C charging, and easy-access controls. You can see the buttons on the base of the earpad.
The Media Remote shows off all the buttons and the plain reverse as you’d probably expect from such a rotation. It looks like you can easily remove the back panel to get to the batteries as well. Probably an odd thing to point out, I’m sure, but given my annoyance with some products, such as Apple products trying to hide their battery panels, this is nice to see.
The HD Camera animation shows off the wired camera. As it turns you can see the base of the camera itself is not connected, however the top of the camera is connected and looks to allow the user to angle the camera vertically as they see fit As already known as well, the camera allows players to remove their background so you don’t need to tidy up your messy room when you’re streaming.
The PS5 is due to launch later this year sometime during the Holiday period, meanwhile, a State of Play is due to take place this week.
