Sony has dropped the DualShock in favour of the DualSense, a new controller for its PS5 console that's packed with next-gen features. But will they get used?
"Sony's brave decision to scrap over 20 years of DualShock success and effectively start again with the DualSense instantly pays off because it feels next-generation straight away. Not in a year. You experience it the instant you feel that Haptic Feedback kick in or try to squeeze those Adaptive Triggers. You know it the moment you hear sound transition across the device or issue a voice command to the user interface."
Finally. A stormtrooper with some Sense
Made me chickle 😊
The more I hear about it, the more it sounds like the DualSense could be a defining feature between the two consoles.
check out the Skill up Vid at Sony Sydney .. It seems it really is not a gimmick but a game changer... Thats all they could talk about.
Honestly sounds interesting, not really a selling point for me, but seems like a cool feature.
You might not have a great grasp of the terms “game changer” and “gimmick” if you think something can simultaneously be both.
A gimmick is not necessarily bad. Gimmicks can be good as well.
Yep, the wiimote was a gimmick...a very popular, game changing gimmick.
Obviously a game changer. This looks to be the greatest controller ever made.
Those adaptive triggers have piqued my curiosity.
The only thing that feels like a gimmick is the touchpad, it was basically used as a big button on ps4 and I dont see that changing with the ps5.
Yeah, I think it's there for compatibilty sake.
I appreciated it's use in Ghost of Tsushima, I had actually forgot how to call the guiding wind, until the guide popped up. I actually had forgotten about the touchpad all together until then.
