The “Cooling Springs” level of the PS5 pack-in offers a sense of what PS5’s new controller can do.
Johnathon Dornbrush writes: "One of the most exciting unknowns about the PlayStation 5 is how its next-gen system introduces a surprising revamp of PlayStation’s long-standing controller. The DualSense’s advanced haptics and adaptive triggers are meant to better immerse players in the games the next generation will deliver, but it’s still a question of whether its added tech is a launch gimmick or a more lasting change. Thankfully, Astro’s Playroom is a free pack-in launch game for PS5 meant to showcase what the DualSense can do. And my time with it – I was allowed to preview the Cooling Springs level – certainly hinted at some of the potential for what the new controller can deliver in a surprisingly Nintendo-like way, while also being a joyful PlayStation homage and a fun platformer in its own right."
I love controllers and this one has me giddy with anticipation.
Can't wait to start using the amazing Dualsense controller. The only next-gen controller around.
With the PS5 it seems like Sony wanted to innovate with the controller and audio along with providing amazing looking games
The PS5 feels like an all around better improvement over last generation
DualSense is fantastic. No one will be dissappointed.
I can appreciate the added functionality of the peripherals instead of marketing and pushing tErAFLoPZ.
