You may have heard through the grapevine that the PS5’s DualSense Wireless controller boasts some seriously impressive features. Until you get your hands on this epic next-gen controller, here's what you can expect from the DualSense Controller. Warning, this article may contain some spoilers!

Introducing Next-Generation Features in the PS5 Controller

If you’re not familiar yet, the PS5 DualSense Wireless controller is the innovative controller built to accompany the PlayStation 5. This controller has been beautifully crafted to give you the most intuitive gaming experience possible, and quite literally put the future in your hands.

The DualSense Wireless controller still holds the iconic aspects of the DUALSHOCK 4 that we know and love. Features such as a built-in battery, an integrated speaker with high fidelity sound, and an integrated motion sensor with built in accelerometer and gyroscope.

The question is, what sets this controller apart for the next generation of gaming?

DualSense Haptic Feedback

Haptic Feedback

A new and very exciting feature of the DualSense wireless controller is its Haptic Feedback function. This allows the player to feel a variety of different sensations across the controller, replacing the rumble feature of the controller’s predecessor. This feature works to simulate a whole host of things in-game, from dynamic environmental changes to the sensitivity of different weapons.

You’ll be able to physically feel what’s happening in your gameplay, within the controller. Whether you’re treading through sand or skating on ice, it will feel different in your hands thanks to the Haptic Feedback.

DualSense Adaptive Triggers

Adaptive Triggers

Adaptive triggers are a refreshing and impressive addition to controller design, not to mention an exciting feature to explore as a gamer. This feature means the L2 and R2 triggers on the DualSense will offer varying levels of force and resistance depending on your actions in-game. For example, feeling a bowstring become tighter and tighter, slamming the breaks on a car, and a lot more to be discovered.

This results in the relationship between gameplay and controller reactivity, all the more immersive for the player.

Built-in Microphone

The DualSense boasts a built-in microphone function, with mute button, allowing you to chat online with friends. Of course, you can also connect a headset to the PS5 controller, through its 3.5mm jack.

Remember, to talk online with friends, you will need internet connection and a PlayStation Network account.

Create Button

Capture and broadcast your most epic gaming moments with the create button. Building on the success of the pioneering SHARE button, “create” offers players more ways to produce gaming content and broadcast their adventures live to the world.


The overall look of the DualSense Wireless controller would not look out of place in a Sci-Fi movie.

This brand-new design is a stunning evolution to the classic look of a PlayStation controller, with PlayStation’s iconic button layout, a totally reimagined light bar and enhanced sticks.

The texture of the DualSense is something to be admired, take a closer look and you’ll see a micro design of the PlayStation’s iconic buttons scattered over the controller.
