In a surprise announcement, Sony has officially unveiled the PS5 Controller, which is called the DualSense.
The controller which is pictured above includes the previously confirmed haptic feedback triggers as well as the adaptive features of them. The Touchpad has returned, with Sony admitting that it wasn’t used too much on the PS4. There is no Share button, with a Create button replacing it, which will grant you new ways to create gameplay content for others or yourself, with more info coming down the road.
PS5 DualSense Controller Revealed
The PS5 DualSense controller will try to maintain a longer battery life and lessen the weight as much as possible. There is also a built-in microphone on the controller, but you can still use a headset. This microphone is built for shorter conversations. Finally, the touchpad is still present but has changed position. It is now on either side of the touchpad.
Hideaki Nishino, the Senior Vice President of PlayStation offered a statement on the unique design of the controller.
Our goal with DualSense is to give gamers the feeling of being transported into the game world as soon as they open the box. We want gamers to feel like the controller is an extension of themselves when they’re playing – so much so that they forget that it’s even in their hands!
The PlayStation Blog post, with all the controller details, also ends with a letter from Cony’s Interactive Entertainment’s CEO, Jim Ryan. Here he restates the PS5’s release is still this holiday. And mentions that the PS5 has many ‘innovative features’. More information should arrive in the coming months, on the consoles design and additional functions of the PS5 DualSense controller.
