After much testing with a variety of hand sizes, the next PSVR controller looks to improve immersion first and foremost. Details regarding the next gen controller have been specifically revealed.

Next Gen PSVR Design & Features
A drastic design change has occurred regarding the controllers, no longer in a stick form. Instead, the controller is designed in a way to be held in a more natural manner. This natural pose allows players to feel more freedom when compared to the previous generation. In short, there are no restraints to the new orb look/feel.
Each controller has an equal amount of buttons for players to operate around. Bot share a joystick, two buttons, a shoulder button, and a trigger each. However, sticking with the triggers, each trigger includes the adaptive triggers that are found in the Dualsense controller. This new feature could increase the immersion levels to heights never reached before. The next gen PSVR controllers also include the haptic feedback that is also found in the PlayStation 5 controller.
Finger sensors & a more robust tracking system are also now included with the next-gen hardware. Not only the aforementioned features are available with the new controllers, but there is also a new button function as well. As expected the shoulder buttons on each controller have actually been assigned a specific role, grip. Both the R1 & L1 buttons shall also assist with gameplay, allowing players to fully grip onto in-game objects & weaponry.
