Essentially, while it may not look it from an initial glance, the DualSense controller is based on the PS4’sDualShock 4, easily the best controller in PlayStation’s history so far. Yes, the colour might have changed to a two-tone design and the bulk seemingly increased and rounded off a little (to, almost, Xbox-form), but the thumbsticks are in the same position and there is still a touchpanel at the top. A lightbar returns too, albeit either side of the touchpanel rather than on the top. One new feature added to the DualSense controller is haptic feedback. Instead of just the plain old rumble pack found in controllers across many generations of gaming, the DualSense will give a player a tangible feedback to better immerse him or her in a game. Along with haptic feedback, the new controller adopts adaptive triggers for the L2 and R2 buttons. These also introduce content-related feedback and finer control, such as when you are pulling the trigger of a gun on screen, or pulling back a bow to fire off an arrow. One thing that will please multiplayer/social gamers no end is the new facility to chat in-game and with other players without the need for a headset especially for short periods and when voice audio quality isn’t that important. The DualSense comes with its own microphone array built into the controller.
