How does it feel when using the PS5 controller Dual Sense to play games? I think that many gamers ask that question all the time in the past few months, and today we gonna get it clear
Geoff Keighley had a live stream sharing his personal feelings about the controller, describing the gaming experience that will be different from the Dualshock 4 controller on PS4.
The well-known journalist, the organizer of the annual Game Awards, Geoff Keighley had a live stream talk about the DualSense controller of the PS5 console, thereby sharing personal feelings. This controller describes how the gaming experience will be different from the Dualshock 4 controller on PS4.
In terms of design, DualSense is a bit bigger than Dualshock 4, nearly the same as the design on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X. The LED strip is moved from near the Micro USB port to around the touchpad of the controller, and the Share button to capture screenshots and gameplay recording has been changed to the “Create” button, with features not yet mentioned specifically.
Perhaps the most commendable upgrade of DualSense is the change of the charging port from Micro USB to USB-C. Although there’s still a 3.5mm port to output audio to the headset, there are still microphones and built-in speakers near the PS button. While the biggest upgrade of DualSense is to replace the classic vibration motor with a haptic feedback vibration coil (as on iPhone 7 and later).
Geoff Keighley shares how gaming feels with DualSense like this:
“When you press the two trigger buttons, the Adaptive Trigger feature creates a very different pressure on the index finger, and this feature is completely programmable. You can imagine the tension of the bow and arrow. The trigger on the handle will describe that effect, or inaction games, pressing the trigger can sense the fastest reload position. The pressure depends on where the player presses the trigger to create a different gaming experience, it is a very unique feeling and can have a long-lasting impact on gaming technology.
The PlayStation controller has a vibration feature for a long time, but haptic feedback creates a whole new experience. It not only vibrates the handle at a fixed point, so it doesn’t work in a simple way with or without vibration. That is the ability to create other unique experiences in the game.
Another thing I noticed is that the speakers on DualSense sounded much better than those built on Dualshock 4, and most of the time I tested with Astro’s Playroom, it worked at the same time as the haptic feedback vibration system. The sound that the integrated speaker shows on DualSense are much more impressive than that of Dualshock 4. If combined with the Tempest 3D sound engine integrated on the PS5, the ability to immerse players in the virtual world of PS5 will be almost endless.
Compared to Dualshock 4, DualSense is heavier than the average, but not too heavy. In other words, it fits perfectly in your hand. It feels more durable, and I feel very good”.
