Sony Have Unveiled The Controller For The Playstation 5

It promises to revolutionise game pads.

If there’s one thing that the current Coronavirus lockdown has been good for, it’s the fact that it’s given us all an opportunity to finish our old Playstation 4 games before the PS5 drops this autumn and they’re all consigned to the scrap heap.

There’s not much known about the Playstation 5 yet, but Sony just dropped a major revelation when they announced the design of the new controller for it. It’s called the ‘DualSense’ and kind of looks like a cross between a PS4 Dualshock pad and an Xbox pad.

Here’s what the official press release said about it:

Based on our discussions with developers, we concluded that the sense of touch within gameplay, much like audio, hasn’t been a big focus for many games.

“We had a great opportunity with PS5 to innovate by offering game creators the ability to explore how they can heighten that feeling of immersion through our new controller.

“This is why we adopted haptic feedback, which adds a variety of powerful sensations you’ll feel when you play, such as the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud.

“We also incorporated adaptive triggers into the L2 and R2 buttons of DualSense so you can truly feel the tension of your actions, like when drawing a bow to shoot an arrow.”

I mean that sounds pretty revolutionary if they can pull it off doesn’t it? The proof of the pudding really will be in the eating though, but the good news is that they’ve tested it extensively with people with different hand sizes and they’ve all been thoroughly satisfied with it. Sounds like it’s going to be a winner.
The best thing I’ve heard about it though is that comes with an inbuilt microphone so you no longer have to get a headset for Call Of Duty with your mates or to diss some twat that you’re playing FIFA against. Finally gonna be able to rub in those dickheads who play as Al Ahly’s faces.
