PS5 DualSense controller - front view

New DualSense controller announced for the PS5

Announced on April 7th, Sony revealed the first images of the new DualSense controller which “will bring the sense of touch to PS5 gameplay.”

The beefed-up controller – when compared the DualShock 4 – brings new features to allow players to immerse themselves deeper into their games. This includes the new enhanced haptic feedback through adaptive triggers Sony points out.

Also new is the colour scheme which traditionally has a single based colour. The DualSense sees Sony going in a new direction with a two-toned design and they’ve also changed the positioning of the light bar for extra pop.

“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
