New PS5 Controller ‘DualSense’ Gets Immersive With Added Gameplay Sensations

Who's excited for the PS5's release?

The controller design for the latest PlayStation console, the PS5, has been revealed and it's named the DualSense controller.

Sony revealed the design in the PlayStation Blog including some photos and its new features. The controller's look is quite a leap from the past designs of PlayStation controllers, sporting a two-tone color that is a distinct change to its commonly black bulky predecessors. The light bar which sat on top of the PS4 controller has also been moved to the two sides of the DualSense's touch pad, giving it the extra pop that looks so beautifully futuristic.

As the name teases, this new controller immerses the players through their senses. It uses refined haptic feedback to add a variety of sensations to the gameplay, like the "slow grittiness of driving a car through mud." It also sports adaptive trigger buttons that can tune their tension according to your in-game activity like when you're drawing a bowstring when shooting an arrow. The controller also has a built-in microphone so you can speak to your co-players even without a headset.

Excited for this new controller? The PS5 is just a few months away! The new console is set for release sometime between October and December this year. Its official price has not yet been revealed, but according to lead architect Mark Cerny via the Gamespot website, the console will have an "SRP [suggested retail price] that will be appealing to gamers in light of its advanced feature set."
