Finally, after Microsoft had shown off their next-gen console, the Xbox Series X, we get a look at something PlayStation 5 related. Introducing the next-gen console’s new controller, the DualSense.
The PlayStation 5 DualSense is not only a thing of beauty, thanks to its sleek futuristic design, but it also comes packaged with loads of new features not seen on the PlayStation 4 DualShock.
Firstly, the design is a big departure from that of previous PlayStation controller, with the DualSense looking like a version of the DualShock 4 that has travelled here from the future. It’s sleek white and black design makes us even more excited to see what the console will actually look like, and if this futuristic design will carry over to the PlayStation 5.
As the rumours suggested, the DualSense has adaptive triggers, which seem to be more angled than the triggers found on the DualShock 4.
The DualSense’s triggers will also make use of haptic feedback, giving the player en even more immersive experience.
As with the DualShock 4, Sony’s next-gen controller will also make use of a rechargeable battery, which has many gamers concerned about battery life, especially with all the added features. The controller will be charged using a USB-C port, so, unfortunately, you will need to pack away your old micro USB cable.
The Share button makes a return, although Sony has not gone into the details of what new features it will have.
Lastly, another great feature, especially if you love gaming online, is the controller’s built-in mic which, although Sony still recommends using a headset for longer sessions, is a great addition.
The departure from the design fans have become familiar with over the years is an interesting move on Sony’s part.
Here’s hoping Sony reveals it’s next-gen PS5 console soon. Rumours have suggested that it might see a delay due to various factors, including the COVID-19 outbreak.
