PS5's DualSense Controller Will Have 'Strong' Battery Life

Along with the new controller information, the blog mentions that we will be getting some information on the actual console's design in the coming months.

Sony unveiled their new controller for the PS5, called DualSense. Take a look for yourself.

Sony has also incorporated adaptive triggers into the L2 and R2 buttons to increase tension when performing actions in-game, such as pulling back on a bow and arrow. Still, Sony said that it has redesigned the component angles to produce a controller that feels a lot lighter in the hand than it looks.

The share button on the front of the DualShock 4 is gone on the DualSense, but a "create" system has been implemented. Can't wait to get my hands on it and test how long the battery actually lasts.

The "DualSense" controller will feature several additional features not found in the current PlayStation generations' Dual Shock 4. For example, the wireless DualSense will be the first PlayStation controller to have haptic feedback, "which adds a variety of powerful sensations you'll feel when you play". The insane thing is, we don't even know what the PS5 will ultimately look like, but if it is anything like this controller, Microsoft should be very anxious.

Sony revealed the details of the DualSense in a blog post, where Hideaki Nishino, senior vice president of platform planning and management, discussed what sets it apart from Sony's previous peripherals. More importantly, it looks like it will be very comfortable to hold.

The images also show that the DualSense will use USB-C for charging, and the bottom of the controller looks like it just has the headset insert, removing the EXT port that is in DualShock 4 controllers.

The DualSense will also have a built-in microphone so players can chat with friends without needing a headset or other peripherals outside of some basic headphones.

Here's the deal, folks - both the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 are sure to be excellent gaming consoles.

The two-tone design is something new for PlayStation's controllers - never have we seen a console launch with one in the past (they've all been solid black or off-white) and could mean that the console itself is two-tone as well.
