Sony in their official blog revealed the PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controller and it’s unique design. The developers worked hard to ensure the best aspects of the PS4’s DualShock controller is retained while a great collection of new features are added to improvise on it.
According to the developers, the primary focus is to provide sensation when you are playing the game. The graphical upgrades and audio enhancements like Dolby Atmos significantly improve what you perceive but little attention has been provided on how players sense the gameplay.
The newly unveiled DualSense wireless controller focuses on this aspect which has been improved with adaptive triggers on the L2 and R2 for an immersive experience. They have also managed to bring in all the rumbles without bulking up the controller. It should make it easier for players of all age groups to hold and use the controller.
Instead of the conventional share button and other buttons found on the console’s face, they have updated it to simple icons. The design provides a more aesthetic feel to the controller. Significant changes are made to the D-pads, buttons and the analog sticks. The rubberized grips should have much longer life now and the same goes for the built-in rechargeable battery.
A major difference that you will spot in the PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controller is the removal of the light bars on the back. Instead, they are converted into a thin line over the touch pad. Sony has also opted for a dual tone black and white design instead of how they always stick to black apart from specific special editions launched through the year.
The controller feels slightly bulky but it is made ergonomic and the design team confirms that it feels easy to hold for a wide variety of hand sizes based on their experiments. Players are now eager to see how the PS5 console would look like as Microsoft has already showcased their Xbox Series X.
