Sony has revealed the next-gen gamepad that will accompany the upcoming PS5 console. Better together, better forever, Sony has introduced a black and white version of the new DualSense wireless game controller for the PS5. The DualSense features have also been revealed, discovering the beauty of the gamepad itself, as it includes adaptive triggers, rechargeable battery, and unlike the DualShock controller, will have an in-built microphone.
Probably the most exciting part is the in-built microphone, which won’t require players to have a headset to communicate with their teammates. “Freedom of speech” if I may say.
However, it also misses a physical Share button but will be replaced with a Create button, which will follow further instructions as time goes by. Below you can the front perspective and design of the DualSense gamepad:
Comfort-wise, the size of the gamepad has been determined thanks to multiple tests by gamers with different hand sizes. For more info, you can check the official statement over at PlayStation’s blog post.
DualSense Key Features:
- Adaptive Triggers
- Rechargeable Battery
- Built-In Mic
- New Create Button that Replaces the old Share Button
- Lightbar Next to Touchpad
President and CEO Jum Ryan has also addressed to the community:
DualSense marks a radical departure from our previous controller offerings and captures just how strongly we feel about making a generational leap with PS5. The new controller, along with the many innovative features in PS5, will be transformative for games – continuing our mission at PlayStation to push the boundaries of play, now and in the future. To the PlayStation community, I truly want to thank you for sharing this exciting journey with us as we head toward PS5’s launch in Holiday 2020. We look forward to sharing more information about PS5, including the console design, in the coming months.” – Jim Ryan, President & CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment
