The Newly Unveiled PlayStation 5 Controller Is Really Ugly

It has not been revealed exactly what the PlayStation 5 itself will look like, but its recently revealed controller, the Dualsense, is hideous. I'm not going to mince words, it is unattractive, and the rest of the internet sees all kinds of funny things staring at it too. I'm glad it adds new features like, "A sense of touch," to gameplay with haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and other fancy words for it giving feedback to your hands based on what occurs in-game. That said, it still is as ugly as sin. I guess it could be worse. At least it isn't the original Xbox controller.

The thing that irritates me the most about it is how I feel like Sony wanted something futuristic in appearance but the result looks more clinical and dull than it does sleek and modern. The thing looks almost medical in appearance, and medical stuff ain't sexy (unless you have a fetish for it, in which case you do you). I'm not opposed to change, I think Sony usually upgrades their controllers quite well. Plus, this new Dualsense could very well handle great. That doesn't change the fact it got beat with the ugly stick, though.
