The next gen console by Sony is gong to launch this Holiday 2020 and ahead of it's launch, Sony officially revealed the controller which would be compatible with it earlier today. The Successor to the DualShock 4 is officially named DualSense. Sony has made sure to make the proper necessary changes and improvements before giving birth to the controller which would be compatible to the console that would be capable of playing all new set of next gen games and which can set a substantial precedent for the development of future consoles. 

Sony has made very significant improvements in terms of the design and also in terms of the functionality. After looking thoroughly into the flaws and the necessary changes which were to be made on the playstation 5 controller, they have made the following alterations-

  • The features of DualSense, along with PS5’s Tempest 3D AudioTech, will deliver a new feeling of immersion to players.
  • Newly added the adoptive haptic feedback feature, which adds a variety of powerful sensations you’ll feel when you play, such as the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud.
  • The adaptive triggers were incorporated into the L2 and R2 buttons of DualSense so that, you can truly feel the tension of your actions, like when drawing a bow to shoot an arrow.
  • Sony has responded to the people by improving the battery performance of the Playstation Controller and claim's that the DualSense will capable of maintaing a stronger battery life for it's rechargeable battery.
  • The DualSense has been embraced with a two-toned color aesthetic and the angle of the shoulder buttons has been altered which could be sensed while you round out the overall shape of the device.
  • The Playstation 5 controller has been able to continue it's integrity with the central touchpad, although it is now flanked by a pair of lightbars.
  • The “Share” button has been removed which was previously seen on the DualShock 4. But, don’t you worry about that. Because you deserve much better, as Sony persists. Instead of the share button Sony will be offering the new “create” button. The all new create button would allow us “new ways to create epic gameplay content to share with the world.” Although, Sony has promised that the additional details will be announced later on.
  • From now on you will be offered an integrated microphone on the controller itself. A first for Sony’s controllers, along with a (long-overdue) USB-C port
  • The PlayStation button, is now cut out in the actual shape of the PS logo, while the triggers have received a more angled design than past Sony controllers.
  • Sony would like to stick with its symmetrical controller layout as was previously, with the D-pad and face buttons on the top half of the controller and the matching analog sticks on the bottom.

Sony, via PlayStation product manage Toshimasa Aoki, has also confirmed that the controller does include a headphone jack for connecting gaming headsets and other audio devices to the gamepad, following concerns from those who couldn't appear to identify the port in the first set of official photos. Jim Ryan also teased that Sony will share more info about the PS5, including its design, in the months leading up to its Holiday 2020 launch.

“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.”
