Sony has updated its official page for PS5's DualSense, and its new 360-degree look confirms there are no back buttons or triggers on the new controller. This confirmation closes the door, at least currently, that PS5's new controller would incorporate the back buttons/triggers in a similar fashion to the DualShock 4 Back Button Attachment. Many thought that Sony chose to release that new add-on because it would be featured on what is now known as the DualSense. Microsoft's official Xbox Elite Wireless Series 2 controller does feature removable triggers that can add extra inputs to the back of controller, which makes it a great accessibility option. While Sony may still be working on an official equivalent to the Elite controller or a new back button attachment, the DualSense features no such additions. Some fans mentioned the lack of buttons during Geoff Keighley's livestream about the new DualSense, and now Sony's website double confirms this fact for the controller's first iteration.

While we know a bit about the PlayStation 5 and DualSense, we are still waiting on a price and release date beyond Holiday 2020. According to a recent report, however, Sony is planning on its next big PS5 announcement happening at some point during this month. Sony is hosting a new State of Play this Thursday, August 6, but it already noted that there will be no big PlayStation 5 announcements.
