With the release date of the Playstation 5 edging closer, Sony has shared the design as well as some of the new features of its latest controller.
The new controller, an upgrade to the previous ‘DualShock 4’ controller which is used on the Playstation 4 console, has been named the ‘DualSense.’
According to a recent tweet from Sony’s PlayStation Product Manager Toshimasa Aoki the new DualSense controller will still have some of the same features as the DualShock 4, one being the retention of the DualShock 4’s wired headphone feature.
However, unlike the DualShock 4 the new DualSense will have a “create” button instead of a “share” button. The purpose of the “create” button will be for, “players to create epic gameplay content to share with the world, or just to enjoy.”
Furthermore, Sony has shared that they have “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,” shared the company via its blog.
The official release date is yet to be confirmed however Playstation 5 console seekers should expect the device to be made available between October and December later this year.
