PlayStation 5 DualSense Controller Revealed
We didn’t see the PlayStation 5 itself, Sony has seen right to tease us today with the first look at its new controller.
In a new post on the PlayStation Blog, Sony Interactive Entertainment vice president Hideaki Nishino revealed the DualSense wireless controller, the company’s follow-up to the DualShock 4.
The DualSense iterates on its predecessors by adding a new haptic feedback system, adaptive triggers for the L2 and R2 buttons, a built-in microphone array, and a new ‘Create’ button in place of the ‘Share’ button from the DualShock 4. If you want to know more about what exactly this ‘Create’ feature actually means is still to come.
“In all, we went through several concepts and hundreds of mockups over the last few years before we settled on this final design,” Nishino wrote. “DualSense has been tested by a wide range of gamers with a variety of hand sizes, in order for us to achieve the comfort level we wanted, with great ergonomics. 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!”
