The DualSense controller will launch alongside the PS5 this holiday season, and features slightly modified design in comparison its predecessor, the DualShock 4. However, it includes a wealth of new features, including haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and a new Create button that replaces the Share feature on the DS4.
No price point for the DualSense controller has been announced yet, but we expect it to retail for around $59.99.
Sony recently confirmed that the DualShock 4 will not be compatible with any PS5 games, although you’ll still be able to use it with PS4 backwards compatible titles.
