Sony Officially Reveals The DualSense Controller For The PS5

Sony has been fairly quiet with everything related to the upcoming PlayStation 5 console. The design, exact release date, pricing, and several other key aspects remain a mystery. However, today on the PlayStation Blog, Sony revealed a lot of information and gave the public its first look at the PS5’s controller. Referred to as DualSense (as opposed to the previous four generations of controllers which were referred to as DualShock), this represents the next advancement in gaming. Looking like a DualShock 4 on bottom and an Xbox One controller on the sides and top, it also represents quite the change visually and physically for Sony controllers.

Here’s a short list of changes from its predecessors:

  • The Share button has been replaced with the Create button, which Sony says there will be more detailed information on in the future.
  • Built in microphone array, which will allow chat without a headset.
  • Stronger emphasis on sound by utilizing their Tempest 3D AudioTech.
  • Two-toned color scheme for their base controller design.
  • Stronger emphasis on haptic feedback.
  • Adaptive triggers for the L2 and R2 buttons.
  • USB-C port for charging.

Some of this information has been the subject of rumor for quite some time. Sony even made mention of it in their extremely technical “The Road to PS5” presentation that took place on March 18. Even then, a lot of this information is brand new. At the time of publication, the reaction of the controller from the public has been mainly positive. What do you think about the DualSense controller? Are you liking the changes? Or do you wish Sony would’ve stayed with their tried and true model from the previous four controllers? Let us know in the comments below.
