This is the PS5 Controller…

– Today Sony surprise
announced the brand new DualSense controller for the PS5, and it is, well it’s
different that’s for sure. There are a ton of new futures so let’s jump straight in. First of all is that DualSense name. The idea is that as opposed to focusing on the DualShock like we’ve had
since the very beginning, instead the DualSense
name is more so about a better haptic feedback experience. So part of that comes down to what is supposedly better haptic feedback inside the actual controller itself. So I’m gonna quote Sony
as saying that it adds a, “Powerful sensation
like the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud.” Which I’m not sure how that
gives you a strong sensation, but yeah supposedly the
actual haptic feedback motors have been significantly
improved from the Dual Shock 4. However, that is only just the beginning of what makes this new
PS5 controller so unique. I’m gonna find a lot of interesting ways to not call this thing ugly in this video. There are now adaptive triggers built in to the L2 and the R2 trigger buttons. Now this is something
that the Xbox One has had, well since the Xbox One first came out. However, I’m gonna be very curious to see how Sony implements this with the DualShock 5. Where you actually get some vibrations, and the actual trigger say
when you’re playing Forza, and you brake too hard and your ABS locks or something like that. There have been many rumors, and if you’ve seen any of
our coverage of the PS5 as well as the Series X, you’ll know that the Series
X has the lead right now. It is a more powerful console, and even in the best case scenario the PS5 is like 20% slower in many cases. But realistically, based
on how much it throttles, it may be even more. So it does make sense to me, that Sony is focusing less on the actual raw pixels
and the pure performance, and much more so on the experience of the PlayStation 5, and therefore the DualSense
Controller can give you. Now if you take a look
at the controller itself, you’ll see it is very clear that they have changed not only the size, but the shape. So Sony talked a little bit about this in their blog post which of course I’ll have linked in the description, but essentially, it seems to be a little
bit of a sharper angle. They claim that this is done partially to fit a lot of these extra technologies such as all these different haptic feedback motors and everything, but just like with the Xbox Series X, I do believe that this is also a plan to just make these controllers
more family-friendly; more friendly for all gamers of all sizes, of shapes, of hands. Sizes and shapes of hands. Sizes and shapes of hands. The quarantine is getting to me. Now based on whether or not you follow the PlayStation or the
Xbox side of the camp, you may or may not be happy to see that the standard dual stick
layout has returned. This is not really a surprise, of course the Xbox One has
always had the offset sticks, which I personally prefer, but the DualShock has always had that and of course it comes over
to the DualSense controller. Now, beyond that, they’re also some interesting design decisions. So, look at this image. Take a close look at it. Do you see anything weird? It’s, again I almost called it ugly. It’s a unique two-tone white
and black color finish. Now personally I’m not against
trying something different, and as we’ll talk a
little bit about later, the Xbox Series X certainly does not push very far in that front. Meanwhile, I’m definitely
not a huge fan of it in this sort of first impression. I feel like as we spend more time with it, it will probably start to grow on me. But it’s, it’s unique, and, side note, I feel like this give us a very good idea of what the actual PlayStation 5 will look like. This kind of design language, and certainly this two-tone color scheme seems like an absolute lock for that PS5, which I’m not totally against. I feel like when you look at the PS4, it is certainly a little
bit on the angular side, a little bit on the boring side where this gives it a little bit more of a future robot look. Now because the DualSense Controller still requires backwards
compatibility with the PS4 games which you will be able to play on the PS5. It still has a light bar, however the light bar has been moved from the back of the controller to around the touchpad, which also is still prominently featured on the DualSense controller. This is something which I feel like is almost more of a legacy
thing than anything else. I mean it’s cool to see, you know, the different lights that you have on the controller, but like does anyone really
care about the light bar? I will say one thing. Sony definitely took a shot at Xbox when you look through this press release. Talking about how it has strong wireless battery life with its rechargeable battery. You know the thing that the Xbox Series X still doesn’t actually
ship within the box. So, kudos for Sony for still shipping a rechargeable battery
like they’ve been doing since 2006. Now one thing that is missing, or at least has been changed, is the lack of a share button. So Sony are being very coy with this one. So, instead of having a
traditional share button, which before you would be able to use to take screenshots, record video, or go live on Twitch, or whatever you wanted to do. Instead, they’re taking
advantage of a create button. Which quote they will be focusing on sharing more details later. That’s actually not a direct quote, that’s a paraphrase. Honestly, one of the biggest features might actually be one of the ones that you can’t really see from the photos, but it is the fact that the new controller actually has a built in microphone array. This actually seems like
kind of a no-brainer. Now of course you can still use a headset with the controller, but as far as I’m concerned, this makes a lot of sense. It might not be the highest
quality audio in the world, but there have been plenty of times where I wished I had a microphone and I didn’t want to have to go dig through like a headset or something. Instead, having it built directly
into the controller itself while yes you might get
a lot of button presses and clicking noises or whatever, but it is a major new feature. And of course, the controller
is taking advantage of USB-C just like on the Series X. Which brings me to I think, one of the biggest comparison points here which of course is that
Xbox Series X controller. Having spent some time really
using the Series X controller, it is very, very similar to the Xbox One. Now yes they’ve slightly
adjusted the grip, so it’s a little bit more
comfortable for smaller hands, and they do have a nice new texture compared to the Xbox One, but generally speaking, it is a very, very similar controller. Now that was not a bad
thing when I first tried it, however now that we’re looking at this DualSense controller, it is, I don’t want to say it’s looking a little bit out of date, but it is certainly
not as forward thinking as what Sony has here, and I actually think
that some of the stuff, if they really pull of the motion, if they really pull of
things like the microphone and they have a built-in
rechargeable battery, could make a real difference. In many ways, this looks
like an expensive controller, but importantly it looks like something which Sony really has spent
a lot of time on to develop, and it’s something that’s
not just the DualShock 5, which I am going to probably
call this controller many, many times before
it actually comes out. But when you put it side-by-side with what you’re getting on the Series X, it does seem like while I might not be the biggest fan of the
looks at the moment, it does seem like a major step forward. So I’m really curious, what do you guys think about the DualSense Controller for the PS5? And what do you think about some of the things it really tells us about the PlayStation 5? Again, we are getting very, very close to the time where we need to
see this PlayStation 5, and we’re kind of getting
this little bit of information dripped and dropped. Dripped and dropped? Dripped and drop. Dripped and dropped. So subscribe if you want more excellent, really well worded PlayStation
5 coverage like this. I like pride myself on the way I mastered the English language.

  1. I have both consoles and not going to lie can't believe Sony would build a controller like this. Just looks meh..

  2. Of course this guy get payed by Microsoft, and of course he looks like he still lives in mommy’s basement, and OF COURSE HE HAS NO IDEA WHAT HES FUCKING TALKING ABOUT, lol typical dumbass virgin nerd

  3. Still no back buttons, not even 2. Still can’t customise triggers. Touchpad will be as useless as always and only act as a huge button.

  4. I play on xbox so I couldn’t tell you but the ps4 controller looks more comfortable and better looking just me ok.

  5. Before I watched the video I was woah why so many dislikes, then 1 minute in I’m like okay now I see why

  6. Dude you are a xbox sell out…. Ps5 has more optimization of components then xbox … raw performance does not mean fluid gameplay.

  7. I don't think having a microphone in the controller is good idea. Might be practical if you don't want to have a headset on you. But the cons are to many.
    How many will have it on and you will hear their background noise?
    The quality won't be the best?
    How sensitive will it be?
    Will it it easily pick up the sound from the TV?
    How easy will it be to control when to mute, turn it off/on etc?

  8. I’m starting to believe Microsoft and Sony are not giving him this stuff but he’s finding other ways to get em hmmmmm… ?

  9. So much of this is inflated with bias and comparison to other consoles. Just make a video about the controller

  10. It’s so fucking weird. Why would people give a fuck about how it looks but not how it acts or enhances performance?

  11. ich hab so Bock auf die PS5 – endlich mal wieder irgendwie was neues… Ich bete dafür das wir alle nicht enttäuscht werden^^

  12. I have a PS4 and if I had the money for both I would get both, some of my mates are on Xbox and some on PS4, but also Xbox has forsa which I wish I could play on PS4. Like the look of this controller, the Xbox seems same-ish, but I think that’s what PlayStation try to do is look different, when Xbox stay looking the same.

  13. Can you please just try and not be one sided? It's clear you already love to X and hate the 5. It's honestly pathetic.. And embarrassing

  14. Why on earth does the new xbox controller use normal batteries?? It's not the 90's!!! So outdated. I do not miss changing batteries half way though a game on 360, I couldn't believe the 360 had it then, this is ridiculous.

  15. Xbox players say ‘Oh i cAnT FiT My hAnD ArOuNd tHe PS4 cOnTrOlLeR’ but have they seen the Xbox controller. The joystick puts ur hand in the most uncomfortable position. And anyway the war is over! Only true gamers see that both are good consoles

  16. this is the first vid of yours ive watched and i dont know what to think but maybe you have a bias towards xbox.
    im torn about this controller. im dreading its RRP for a single controller. i have smallish hands and im worried that if its similar to xbox controller then im screwed (i found them akward and not very comfy to use). i hoestly hope they dont make it too much bigger or heavier then the current dual shock 4. i think the controller it self looks very cool ive love to see it in those crystal clear shells they did for the ps4. i love that see through/ripped down aesthetic

  17. I honestly dig the look with the controller, it looks more futuristic than things that have recently come out.
