SONY has unveiled brand new virtual reality controllers for the PS5.
The new accessories are designed to work with Sony's upcoming next-gen headset: the PSVR 2.
Sony launched the original PSVR back in 2016, with two Move controllers.
The system quickly became one of the world's best-selling VR headsets.
Now Sony is upgrading PSVR for the PS5 generation of games – and has fully revealed the controllers.
"Our new VR controller speaks to our mission of achieving a much deeper sense of presence and stronger feeling of immersion in VR experiences," said PlayStation's Hideaki Nishino.
"It will build upon the innovation we introduced with the DualSense wireless controller, which changed how games 'feel' on PS5 by unlocking a new way to tap into the sense of touch.
"Now we’re bringing that innovation to VR gaming."
The controllers have an "orb" shape that works wirelessly – so no cables getting in your way.
Sony says they'll be very comfortable across a range of hand sizes.
And the firm even bragged that the new design would "change how VR games are played".
Like PS5's DualSense joypad, the Sony VR controllers will let you "feel" games.
Each VR controller has adaptive triggers that will adjust tension depending on game activity.
You'll also get haptic feedback sensations through very specific vibrational zones.
The controllers are able to detect the touch of your fingers, even if you're not pressing.
It means you can make gestures with your hands during gameplay, like pointing – just like on Facebook's Oculus Quest 2.
Your new VR headset will track the controllers using a ring on the bottom of each device.
And they come equipped with action buttons, analogue sticks, grips and more.
Sony says that prototypes of the new VR controller will be available to game-makers soon.
