Not the most exciting news, but it's nice to know why we're screaming into the void.

The PlayStation 5's Dualsense controller will show when its built-in microphone is muted with a red light.

In the continuing drip-feed of news and impressions about the new controller, the news emerged from longtime industry insider @Tidux.

Not to be confused with the lights around the touchpad, the light in question resides between the thumbsticks and under the PlayStation logo.

The controller offers plenty of new features, on top of the touchpad and speaker introduced with the Dualshock 4.

Haptic feedback introduces a new style of rumble motors, while the much-vaunted adaptive triggers will offer "varying levels of force and tension as you interact with your in-game gear and environments".

The Share button has been ditched for a "Create" button, too, although we're yet to hear more about what that change means outside of semantics.
