We have heard plenty about the capabilities of the new PS5 DualSense controller, but we've only gotten poor looks at it outside of the glamour shots Sony provided — that is, until now.
Geoff Keighley posted a quick video teaser on his Twitter account revealing that he has the PS5 DualSense and that a more detailed hands-on look is coming as part of the Summer Game Fest. The DualSense controller hands-on video is set to go live at 12p EST (9 a.m. PT, 11 a.m. CT) today, July 17.

Geoff just gave a quick glimpse at the controller on his desk and in his hands to get everyone excited for tomorrow, but it did offer a sense of the proportions of the controller.
