- Adaptive triggers** – Experience varying levels of force and tension as you interact with your in-game gear and environments. From pulling back an increasingly tight bowstring to hitting the brakes on a speeding car, feel physically connected to your on-screen actions.
- Built-in microphone and headset jack – Chat with friends online*** using the built-in microphone or by connecting a headset to the 3.5mm jack. Easily switch voice capture on and off at a moment’s notice with the dedicated mute button. ***Internet and account for PlayStation Network required.
PS5 DualSense Controller Summary
Sony shared several features and improvements made in the new DualSense controller in the blog post. The controller has haptic feedback that “adds a variety of powerful sensations you’ll feel when you play, such as the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud.” The L2 and R2 buttons have adaptive triggers that are meant to improve immersion by making the players feel the tension of the actions they are performing in-game.
Sony wanted to make the controller feel smaller than it looks, thus the DualSense controller has a cone-like shape for the grips, replacing the more rounded grips on the previous DualShock controllers. The new controller still retains the rechargeable battery, a feature that comes as an add-on for the Xbox Series X.
The ‘Share’ button, as seen on the DualShock 4 controller, has been removed and replaced by a ‘Create’ button on DualSense controller. The ‘Create’ button builds upon the functionality offered by the Share button. “We’ll have more details on this feature as we get closer to launch,” the blog noted.
