DualSense is a wireless controller built on the success of the DualShock 4. It features haptic feedback, designed to go beyond the simple vibration of old controllers, giving players new sensations during gameplay. In addition, the DualSense’s L2 and R2 keys will be adaptive allowing players to increase or decrease the tension ultimately adapting the output accordingly.

“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

As you can see the buttons have been reworked and they have changed the Share button as seen on the current DualShock 4 and replaced it with the Create button, which will allow players to create content to share with the whole world in an even simpler way.

The light bar is now visible on the sides of the touch-pad, alongside these new changes comes the integrated microphone that will make it easier to talk with friends online without necessarily having to use headphones, will be interesting to see how the background noise is removed, but nonetheless a great addition to a great looking device.
