Summer Game Fest 2020 – PS5 DualSense controller hands-on with Astro’s Playroom gameplay

Astro's Playroom comes pre-installed on every PlayStation 5.


Geoff Keighley presented the first-ever hands-on with PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller via a gameplay demo of Astro’s Playroom, which is a “multi-hour game” that introduces the controller’s technology and comes pre-installed on every PlayStation 5, as part of Summer Game Fest 2020.

The gameplay is followed by an interview with PlayStation’s worldwide head of marketing Eric Lempel, who confirmed that Sony Interactive Entertainment will give consumers advance notice of when pre-orders will begin—“it’s not going to happen within minutes notice.”

PlayStation 5 is due out this holiday.
