The first look of Sony PlayStation 5 new controller has been launched

Sony discloses the controller for the PlayStation 5. Named DualSense, the controller adds haptic feedback, adaptive triggers and a in-built microphone line-up.

The brand shared the first look of DualSense, the new PS5 controller shipping with the PlayStation 5 later in 2020. The DualSense sports not just brand new functionality and a home for fresh features, but a brand-new look to compare.
A post on the PlayStation blog detailing the new DualSense controller nicely reveals the design decision to keep “much of what gamers love about DualShock 4 intact,” but despite holding on to some of the old controller’s most iconic qualities, the DualSense has a lot of new features to bring into the next-generation of PlayStation too.

Take a look at what all the PS5 DualSense controller has to offer:

Two-Tone Color Design And Light Bar Placement

The most admirable difference between the DualSense and earlier DualShock controllers is its striking two-tone design. The light bar placement is also different – instead of being located at the top of the controller, it will now sit on both sides of the touch pad. This, according to Sony, will grant it “a slightly larger look and feel.”

New Form Factor

The new DualSense controller seems to have a bit thicker form factor than the DualShock 4. According to Sony, the angle of the hand triggers and the grip have been renewed to create space for some of its new features, like the introduction of adaptive triggers.

Haptic Feedback And Adaptive Triggers

One of the foremost things we knew about the new PS5 controller is that it would use haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. That’s still true, as Sony had shared earlier. In their blog post, Sony detailed the “variety of powerful sensations” haptic feedback can bring to gameplay, like “the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud.”

Adaptive triggers on the L2 and R2 buttons will launch different levels of “resistance” with trigger presses, which can work in tandem with the DualSense’s haptic feedback to make gameplay interactions more immersive.

Rechargeable Battery

The DualSense will come with a rechargeable battery, just as earlier DualShock controllers did.

USB-C Port

It will surely have a USB-C port for its power cable.

Built-In Mic

The DualSense will have a built-in mic to chat with friends without needing a headset–though Sony still recommends using one for longer chat sessions.

Create Button

The Share button has been replaced with a new Create button, though Sony declined to share more details on how the new button is differentiated from the Share functionality.
