After Microsoft revealed its next-gen gaming system in the Xbox Series X, many people have been impatiently waiting for Sony to unveil what they’ve been working on. The wait is over as we at least have images of the Sony PlayStation 5 controller. Introduced as the DualSense controller, this device goes in a different direction than the normal DualShock controllers and capitalizes on the trail that the DualShock 4 for PS4 has blazed.
The haptic feedback function of this wireless controller will utilize the sense of touch when playing video games. This means that the controller will react to certain situations during gameplay. The L2 and R2 will come equipped with adaptive triggers for better tension when playing shooters where you have to draw your weapon. To make the DualSense feel smaller, the hand triggers and grip have been slightly updated as well. One major advantage of this updated controller is the fact that the battery life will improve despite all the new features.
The “Share” button has been replaced by the “Create” button and a built-in microphone has also been added. Sony plans to share more information on these new additions as more hardware news is announced.
As far as cosmetics goes, PlayStation has opted for a two-toned white and black color scheme which is far different than past design of just one solid color. This final design is the result of several concepts and hundreds of mockups over the last few years.
