It turns out that Resident Evil 3 uses the DualSense's light bar to show how much health protagonist Jill Valentine has.
Didn't the Dual Shock 4 also do this? Particularly the new one that has a front facing strip?
Dual Shock 4 also does this in Death Stranding on the PC
Yea I remember it specifically with Killzone SF. Didn’t really notice it to much after that.
What? How do you manage to get that feature working on a PC game? I can't even get the rumble feature to work when i use my DualShock 4 to play my emulators on PC, or even use it without a cable :( Are you one of the few lucky owners of that bluetooth dongle that Sony had officially released a couple years back to connect the DS4 to the PC wirelessly, that originally sold for 20€ and can't be found now for less than 5 times as much?
@master Death Stranding on Steam the colour bar changes with BB I just plug it in with a normal USB. Most Steam games just work with the DS4, same with Epic, Rockstar and Unisoft launchers all have rumble support. Had a few issues with ea games but for that I use a program called DS4Windows
Yea... but i always put the DS4 light on dim because the main light can be too much, the new design fixes that and make a more subtle feeling without making it distracting or disturbing.
yes the DS4 did this too just not noticed unless you have a revision 2 of the DS4 with the strip on the touch pad
Cool little touch! I love when dev make things like this.
Cool - I think not enough devs used the light bar on the DS4 as a feature in their games. I hope more devs take advantage of this on PS5.
Dualsense is so awesome they need to make use of most of the features (all hopefully) in all games imo. It really adds a lot to the experience and PS5 will really stand out because of the controller with it all games they were already great at making . It all adds up and makes a unique experience even with multiplat games
I always thought the Red and Blue flashing lights was pretty cool w the cops on GTAV. Especially if you're playing in a dark room.
I love that too!
I like little things like this personally
Best controller ever I was blown away by the adaptive triggers on Cold War.
Nobody looks at their controller to monitor their health.
Except for those that do. Gateway MT6706 2008
This happened with Resident Evil 2 on the PS4, as well.
Isn’t this just the PS4 light at functionality on the ps5. I imagine any game that used the light at should work the same way it did on PS4.
I’m no speedrunner and i finished this in 1 and a half hours. They should have ignored the multiplayer crap and used the time to include the clock tower, sewers, full laboratory, the garage, the cemetery. What a waste.
This is the dumbest article ever, of course it does. This is like saying the dualsense's touchpad works on PS4 games on the PS5
I found this out playing the much better Resident Evil 2 Remake on my PS5.
Interesting idea to take something from the HUD and put it on the controller. The less HUD the better.
Hopefully and I guess does the same For resi2 as yet to smash that did resi3 instead last month thought I’d save Resi as was always my favourite 😂✌🏻
That's pretty cool
The dual sense sounds awesome, from all accounts the haptics add to the immersion heaps but for me looking at the controller for in game information leans more towards breaking that added immersion that the other features enhance. No big deal, this won't get used.
Reminds me of the kinect. So during gameplay your expected to look away from the screen and focus on your controller , pure Gimmick
The Dreamcast did this with the VMU 20 years ago.
Its always done this on PS4's light bar just depends if you have a newer DS4 that has the light bar show through the front, other wise you may never notice this but the rear light bar changes color too
I’ve always liked when a handful of games took advantage of the light bar on the PS4, as it can be used to really neat effect. However, it’s not used as often as I’d like, and it’s in a spot where it rarely occurs to me to look for it, so I often miss it. I’m glad the light bar is in a more obvious spot on the DualSense.
Things like this do tempt me to lean in that direction for multiplats
