The next-generation game controller has unveiled by Sony quietly for the Play Station 5 without much of a spectacle. The controller is called Dual Sense, a departure from the Dual Shock controller. The controller opts for an all-new colour theme and also has some added functionality both inside and outside.
The PlayStation 5 controller will allow haptic feedback, which the company claims will be able to create specific feedback for different gameplays. The new haptic engine, the company claims will provide greater immersion. The official release claims that the haptic feedback ‘adds a variety of powerful sensations you’ll feel when you play, such as the slow grittiness of driving a car through the mud. We also incorporated adaptive triggers into the L2 and R2 buttons of Dual Sense so you can truly feel the tension of your actions, like when drawing a bow to shoot an arrow.’
Apart from the new haptic feedback, Dual Sense will get a built-in mic which can be used for short conversations but the company claims that for longer gaming sessions and conversations, the gamer should opt for a headset.
Sony’s new DualSense will be ditching the ‘Share’ button that was first introduced with the DualShock 4 controller for a ‘Create’ button. The exact functionality of the button will be revealed later. Sony claims they will be adding to the functionality of the ‘Share’ button and not replace it.
