In recent days the Reddit user viper_on_fire has published images and videos of the DualSense, the controller that will accompany the PS5, and has given some details about its characteristics.
We knew that the battery of the gamepad will be superior to the DualShock 4 of PS4 and this information puts figures: between 3 and 4 hours more life than the current controller.
PS5 will go on sale in Spain at the end of the year, and although there is no official date yet, it is believed that it would be in November.
The description also talks about a touchpad that responds better than the DualShock 4 and L1 and R1 buttons that work more like triggers, with travel , while now it costs a little more to press L2 and R2 even without the voltage points activated.
The user says that he has not been able to test the haptic vibration or the new microphone, but that he hopes to do it soon; This suggests that the tests have been carried out with the DualSense connected to a PS4.
In his impressions Viper_on_fire comments that the DualSense is more comfortable than the DualShock 4 or the Xbox One controller and less bulky than the current Sony controller , at least to the touch, since the comparisons show that it is a little larger than the past DualShock.
DualSense, one of the novelties of PS5
One of the first aspects that Sony detailed about its new console was the DualSense, which is the biggest evolution of the PlayStation controller since the introduction of the DualShock .
The controller improves various functions of the DualShock 4, for example its microphone and speaker, changes its ergonomics and replaces the traditional vibration with haptic vibration, which allows a greater range of sensations than that achieved by the intensity of the DualShock’s motors.
It also includes adaptive triggers, so L2 and R2 will offer different levels of resistance considering what happens in the game.
