Dem buttons gonna light up my life
It's almost October. It's about time Sony gives us the full breakdown of the PS5, the hardware, the controller the UI and how backwards compatibility work. Not leave it so long everything is leaked by third-parties.
Rumor is on the 5th of October things will start trickling out. A lot of reviewers are getting their console. I agree though I don't like how long sony is making us wait for this. We got a pretty good breakdown in Feb 2013 for the ps4 9 months before release, and here we are with a little over a month to go and I don't even know if I can play persona 5 royal on my console, or if the ps store will get another redesign, or if I can order Doordash straight through psn.
Just to be safe you may as well buy a Series X because we know they have nothing to hide right? Seriously either stop whining and be patient or move on with your wallet.
That thing looks insanely well built, I still hate the left stick placement, but that is just a preference thing, this looks like one of the best stock controllers I have ever seen, will only know for sure when I get it in person, but it is impressive looking at least.
It’s not just a preference it’s a proven ergonomics fact, the left stick should accommodate vertical movement since it’s primarily used for forward movement.
For sure. As excited as I am to finally get ahold of what looks to be an even-beefier PlayStation controller, I can’t help but think that it can only ever be so good because the stick placement holds it back. It’s gotten to the point where I use an adapter to play my ps4 using an Xbox controller for everything besides fighting games- which the one controller still works well for in a pinch. The DualShock 4 on the other hand, I would never use for a shooter or platformer, given that i have another option.
Ergonomics fact? Lol Keep telling yourself that. I’ve read no research papers on the placement of the analog stick, and I’m willing to bet you haven’t as well. I’d say it’s certainly a matter of preference as GottaBjimmyb said. I know I absolutely prefer and as a result, play better on the asymmetric analogs, however, I fully understand that for many the opposite is true. That aside, this is a nice looking controller, anxious to get my hands on one.
“It’s not just a preference it’s a proven ergonomics fact, the left stick should accommodate vertical movement since it’s primarily used for forward movement.” And if true, Xbox has done it wrong this whole time as pushing the thumb stick forward is easier from the side (and without bending at the joint) where you have better control.
@Evan_Beezy Ergonomic? That's a joke. The only reason it's like that is so it wouldn't look like a PlayStation controller. That's it, end of story. But now you're used to it and need to convince yourself it's better that way.
Reminds me of iRobot ... Also I'm worried that colored on screen prompts are now meaningless since it's monotone... I still would prefer black with the colors on the buttons
So I'm a Sony fan but still, this is looking like the best controller ever made in the $60 range.
My only questions right now have to do with back buttons/elite controller and if they've addressed the stick drift that hit almost every DS4 I've owned. But you're right, it seems to offer a lot at 70 bucks.
It didn’t have stuck drift.. it had Bluetooth connection interference issues that caused the drifting. Not saying it to make seem less of an issue, but that was the issue and yes, I hope this issue is fixed.
Stick drift? I literally have 7 controllers and not one of them has stick drift . 2 Black , 1 Blue Raspberry , 1 Metallic Blue , 1 anniversary edition 1 silver 1 snow camouflage
I have 3 controllers 2 with stick drift. It is real. Pretty sure it's from FPS games
Why the hell is it so common for people to think things they don't personally experience don't happen at all? Like my four controllers with stick drift are some myth.
I don't know why it's common but I could fancy a couple guesses. I don't want to get flagged though 😂
I've had 4 PS4 controllers so far and 3 of them have had stick drift. I bought my most recent one about 5 months ago and just 3 months later it started getting crazy stick drift. Annoying when playing online first person shooters.
I have four controllers and 1 of them has stick drift but very slightly. Still a nuisance. It's my oldest launch console controller though. The two newer model ones I have are absolutely perfect. I'm guessing the DualSense controllers will have this ironed out. Hopefully.
@Remember - I'm called a liar because my Switch joycons DON'T have drift. So go figure. I have 4 DS4's none with stick drift. But my 25th Anniversary DS4 had the left trigger lock up completely on me. Not sure what caused it but I can't depress it at all, it's stuck.
@Rude-ro I've only had 4 PS4 controllers this gen, 2 of them had stick drift. One just flared up while playing Ghost of Tsushima, and it's too late to just go out and buy a new one with the PS5 just around the corner, so I'm just dealing with it until then.

I love how this comment is just getting thrashed 😂 fk yal
I have two launch DS4s. One has stick drift, both had the rubber completely deteriorate off their thumb sticks.
Just to add to the drift convo. I’ve had it on 3 out of my 4 controllers. Even the one that came with my PS4 Pro last year. Only my gold one is still hanging on proper. Darndest thing.
It's $70 actually.
They are $70
This controller looks so comfortable. Can't wait to get my hands on it.
Wish they could have made room for led backlit buttons.. but she does look nice to get your hands on
Then people would have complained about the extremely slight decrease in battery life for backlighting buttons.
I would definitely complain, who the hell looks at the buttons while they play? The design they went with look A+ to me.
I wouldn't have wanted backlit buttons. Sure they look nice but they serve no purpose
Useless feature. Same as the current led lighting on the DS4
That light is literally vital for tracking psvr games.
That texture bro
Textured thumbsticks look really grippy.
Using ultra tiny PlayStation symbols to add texture to the grips is a beautiful design touch.
Hope people that get mad and throw controllers control themeselves and not break these beautiful controllers.
You realize Demons Souls is a launch game right? They will be thrown.
I would argue that CoD's Multiplayer destroys more controllers than any Souls game.
Only controller I've even successfully exploded was that that smaller original Xbox controller playing Ninja Gaiden. I was like 12. My Dad was HOT 😠😤😂
I definitely threw my controller a few times playing Demon's Souls.
I hope people that actually get angry enough to throw controllers get anger management help because they need it.
Looks great, looking forward to it.
Come on, I'm waiting for the flood of info to start.
Shouldn’t be too much longer.
Looks good but I wish it had rear buttons, I expected it to after they released the rear button attachment for the DS4.
I don't see why they did this with PS4 if they weren't getting ready to with PS5. Just seems odd
The comfort is what im most excited for. I have a feeling its going to be great.
Cant wait to play the awesome Sony games with this bad boi
Can't wait to have mine.
They should’ve changed square to yellow
Title is misusing, similar images have already shown the details on the dual sense
That's a sexy looking controller.
I wonder when they're going to give us a teardown of the system itself. I'm really shocked we have so much yet to know with the launch being so close.
Im going too mod mine so it lights up.
that share button better be a hard press.
these articles always overhype these things lets just wait till we get it.
I like it very reminiscent of the PSP buttons which had a premium feeling
I have a feeling this is going to be another quality controller.
Love those buttons and excited about the haptic feedback. I really wish they would change those analog stick shape material and position though.
It looks awesome. I am surprised, though, that they elected to get rid of the color of the buttons.
Do the buttons light up tho?
Long as the share and option buttons are easier to press on this controller I’m all in. Didn’t like my PS4 ones.
I'm interested in it too
They switched to Xbox style buttons
