Introducing DualSense, the New Wireless Game Controller for PlayStation 5


Quote:
After thoughtful consideration, we decided to keep much of what gamers love about DualShock 4 intact, while also adding new functionality and refining the design. Based on our discussions with developers, we concluded that the sense of touch within gameplay, much like audio, hasn’t been a big focus for many games. We had a great opportunity with PS5 to innovate by offering game creators the ability to explore how they can heighten that feeling of immersion through our new controller. This is why we adopted haptic feedback, which adds a variety of powerful sensations you’ll feel when you play, such as the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud. We also incorporated adaptive triggers into the L2 and R2 buttons of DualSense so you can truly feel the tension of your actions, like when drawing a bow to shoot an arrow.

This provided us with an exciting challenge to design a new controller that builds off of the current generation, while taking into account the new features we were adding. For example, with adaptive triggers, we had to consider how the components would fit into the hardware, without giving it a bulky feeling. Our design team worked closely with our hardware engineers to place the triggers and actuators. The designers were then able to draw the lines of how the exterior of the controller would look and feel, with a challenge of making the controller feel smaller than it really looks. In the end, we changed the angle of the hand triggers and also made some subtle updates to the grip. We also took thoughtful consideration into ways to maintain a strong battery life for DualSense’s rechargeable battery, and to lessen the weight of the controller as much as possible as new features were added.

For the buttons, you’ll notice there is no longer a “Share” button as we had with DualShock 4. Don’t worry – it’s not going away. In fact, we’ve built upon the success of our industry-first Share button to bring you a new “Create” button feature. With Create, we’re once again pioneering new ways for players to create epic gameplay content to share with the world, or just to enjoy for themselves. We’ll have more details on this feature as we get closer to launch.

DualSense also adds a built-in microphone array, which will enable players to easily chat with friends without a headset – ideal for jumping into a quick conversation. But of course, if you are planning to chat for a longer period, it’s good to have that headset handy.

Now, let’s talk about the colors. Traditionally our base controllers have a single color. As you can see, we went a different direction this time around, and decided on a two-toned design. Additionally, we changed the position of the light bar that will give it an extra pop. On DualShock 4, it sat on the top of the controller; now it sits at each side of the touch pad, giving it a slightly larger look and feel.

I'm stoked... Now where is the console? I'm assuming it'll be two toned like the controller. I'd rather just have all black.

I third this sentiment. Please, I don't want yet another white piece of plastic on my shelf!

What consoles are white right now? I think my last white console was a Wii or an old 360.

I guess I'm in the minority. I liked white consoles. Not that I don't like black too but I think white cases can be done really well. NZXT does some nice looking white computer cases that I can see matching up well with console design.

Both the Xbox One and PS4 have had white consoles this generation.

This thing looks dated. Where is the screen?

I'm sure its more comfortable. Its shaped more like the xbone controller, which is a more comfortable controller in my hands.

I was hoping for the analog sticks to be changed up a bit.

WiiU pro controller is still my best controller of all time, like ever.

My Xbox One S is white. So is the controller.

my absolute favorite thing about new console launches is that everybody who doesn't care that their games don't look as good as a PC loses their fucking minds over how the actual case their hardware comes in looks, and it's always hate.
i like that controller. i like the stadia controller more but that thing looks fine.

Hard to tell because of the clear caps but those buttons look really close to being flush with the controller face. I like the sleek look it gives but man, the finger and thumb issues could be bad with slipping and being lower to the face than in the past.

Did Sony hire Mad Catz to design the controller?

That was my first thought too with the buttons looking so close to the controller itself.

I don't think this particular angle will tell you anything; it's straight on with no shading on the face of the controller, so there's no way to really tell how flush the buttons actually are.
