DualSense Wireless Controller for PlayStation 5

Check out the first ever images for the DualSense Wireless Controller for PlayStation 5. Take a look below at the details and stay tuned to PS Nation for more news on this and much more.

We’ve reached an exciting milestone with PlayStation 5, as we’re starting to ship our new controller in its final design to developers who are implementing its unique features into their games. But first, we wanted everyone in the PlayStation community to get a first look at the DualSense™ wireless controller, and hear our vision for how the new controller will captivate more of your senses as you interact with the virtual worlds in PS5 games. The features of DualSense, along with PS5’s Tempest 3D AudioTech, will deliver a new feeling of immersion to players.

Haptic feedback is a big improvement compared with the rumble of the DS4.

Adaptive triggers for the L2 and R2 buttons means a varying degree of resistance can be implemented by developers. For example, the weapons in Call of Duty could feel different from one another or the follow up to Horizon Zero Dawn could have some resistance when the bow is pulled back.

Rechargeable battery, so you don’t need to worry about buying a load of AA’s.

Create Button is an evolution of the Share button on the DualShock 4. More details on this feature will appear closer to launch but I believe it integrates editing and sharing for causal and ‘professional’ streamers.

Built-in microphone array, which means you don’t need a headset to chat but the option is still there.

Light bar position has changed to make it easier to see. It now appears at each side of the touch pad.

Two-toned design as opposed to the single color of the DS4. This means we could see a larger variety of designs.

USB Type-C port for charging and pairing with the PS5/PC.

A message from SIE President & CEO Jim Ryan to the community:

“DualSense marks a radical departure from our previous controller offerings and captures just how strongly we feel about making a generational leap with PS5. The new controller, along with the many innovative features in PS5, will be transformative for games – continuing our mission at PlayStation to push the boundaries of play, now and in the future. To the PlayStation community, I truly want to thank you for sharing this exciting journey with us as we head toward PS5’s launch in Holiday 2020. We look forward to sharing more information about PS5, including the console design, in the coming months.” – Jim Ryan, President & CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment
