PS5: Sony’s First Live-Action Commercial Leaks Online

August 20, 2020 Off By tracy
The first live-action PS5 commercial appears to have leaked online, and it focuses on the features of the DualSense controller and the console’s 3D Audio capabilities.Mirrored to Twitter by industry analyst ZhugeEX, a thread on ResetEra suggests that the video was posted to the official PlayStation Hungary youtube channel, before being promptly taken down.

The short live-action trailer touts the features of the DualSense by showing an actor touching a rumbling icy surface and pulling a bowstring. They later notice the sound of a radio in a faraway guard tower, referring to the PS5’s Tempest Engine audio system. There’s also a giant octopus monster involved in there too, but that probably isn’t a DualSense feature.

The end of the trailer flashes up three phrases of focus in Hungarian, which when translated to English equal “Haptic Feedback, Adaptive Triggers and 3D Audio.” Near the bottom of the screen at the end of the trailer is a note which suggests that the DualSense systems teased in the trailer will be “available if the feature is supported by the game.”

Speculation has inevitably begun about whether this commercial’s appearance points to an upcoming announcement on a release date, price, and pre-orders. We’ve heard previously that PS5 pre-orders going live won’t be a surprise. IGN has contacted Sony for comment.
