New Feature In The PS5 Controller Changes, upgrades, and disadvantages – here are all the differences between older controllers and dualins.
The wait still wears on Sony to reveal the design or launch line for its upcoming PlayStation 5 console. Nevertheless, the company has now opted to surprise fans with the sudden appearance of the controller that we will all become quite familiar with in the coming years.
Below are some key points to keep in mind about the design of the new controller, including all the features that have been either added or taken away from the DualShock 4.
New Name: DualSense (Goodbye, DualShock)
Although this is not strictly a new feature of the controller, it is still worth noting. For the first time, Sony is removing its long-standing naming convention in favor of some new brand. Instead of calling the new controller the DualShock 5 — as expected — it would instead be referred to as DualHikin. As the president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan puts it, this new Monecker “shows how strongly we feel about making a generational leap with the PS5.” In addition, the “prudence” in the name appears as a reference that the new controller will focus more on the sense of touch, particularly through the reaction to confusion.
Haptic response in trigger (like Xbox One)
It seems that Sony is placing mass bets on the dual-capacity controller via dual feedback, which focuses on more immersive rumble capabilities via haptic feedback. This is not far from the HD rumble featured in Nintendo’s Joy-Con controller.
The controller can reportedly have multiple levels of finely rumble controls to feel whatever is happening on the screen, such as “the slow speed of driving a car through the mud.” This sensation would extend well into the form of adaptive triggers, capable of simulating sensations like a bowling strain when pulling back an arrow on a bow.
Share button gone (called: create “now” button)
Yes, you read it right, Sony is removing the share button that it offered with the DualShock 4 controller. However, it seems that the idea of the share button will be on the new “Create” button replacing it. The blog post does not present too many details on this front. It seems that Creat will continue to give players the opportunity to capture screenshots and footage of their gameplay, while possibly allowing them to share it directly with the world via social media or streaming. Sony would not have renamed this button if it was simply going to retain its exact functionality from the PS4, however, expect some interesting new features with it.
A Built-in Microphone
Sony has introduced external microphones in the past as a part of the console. It seems that it has now been decided to cut the extra step and only integrate it into Dualikin. Mike’s quality is still to be seen – and suggesting that blog posts still suggest using the headset for longer conversations – but it’s at least a good entry-level option for online communication Must be proved. Hopefully, Sony includes the option to turn this mic on or off quickly. It would probably be on an ‘always’ setting otherwise.
Two-Tone color scheme
Traditionally, the launch controller has been blackened to match the color of the launch console. However, in a continuation of the rearing tradition, DualInson will be the first launch PlayStation controller to introduce a two-tone color scheme.
Primarily white with black accents, keeping in mind the look of Stormtroopers from the Star Wars universe. Still, this is a good look at what a groundbreaking controller should be expected for. Also, although we have yet to see the console’s design on its own, Dualikens’ color scheme is probably going Sony in a new direction with the color scheme for the PS5.
A Redesigned light bar
One of the most divisive aspects of the PS4 controller is the light bar, which many claim is an unnecessary addition that eats up already limited batteries. Perhaps in response to these comments, Sony has opted for a more subtle integration of the light bar with DualSense. It will now appear as an accent on the edges of the touch bar in the center of the controller. This more understandable look helps to highlight the two-toned color scheme, and the expectation will also mean that the light will be easier on the battery.
An image from the back of the controller shows that Sony is replacing the DualShock 4K micro-USB port with a more modern USB-C connection to the DualDisk. This was an expected step which is the new standard USB-C. It is still good to see that we will have this universal standard out of the box. The USB-C port means that we can have faster charge speeds going forward, and the ubiquity of USB-C means there will be no trouble with proprietary technology and cables. You can use any cable as long as you have the correct connection.
