One PS5 DualSense Wireless Controller

The new DualSense Controller comes with an array of features such as:

  • Haptic Feedback: With next-generation haptic feedback, classic rumble is replaced with dual actuators, offering a more immersive experience. It provides a range of powerful physical sensations. You can also reduce the effect or disable the feature altogether if required. Haptic feedback provides deeper game immersion. One example of this feature is Astro’s playroom, wherein you can feel the texture of the surface Astro runs across. Similarly, it simulates the recoil of different weapons, which enhances the immersion. You can read more about the haptic feedback functionality at the following link: Presenting PlayStation’s first global ad spot showcasing key immersive features for the PS5 console generation
  • Adaptive triggers (L2 and R2 buttons): You will experience varying levels of force and tension when interacting with your in-game gear and environment. For example, when pulling back a tight bowstring, you will feel the tension in the triggers, or when you apply brakes on the speeding car in the game, you will enjoy a great sense of immersion with this technology. 
  • Built-in MIC: You can chat with your online friends using the built-in microphone, though you can still connect a headset to a 3.5mm jack if you prefer the latter. You can switch off the MIC anytime by using the dedicated mute button available on the DualSense Controller.
  • The Create button: The Create button is a replacement for DualShock 4’s ‘Share’ button. With the create button, you can capture and broadcast3 your most favorite gaming moments. You now have more options for creating gaming content and streaming your great experiences live.
  • More extensive and heavier compared to the DualShock 4: It comes with a more prominent form factor than the DualShock 4, which is probably due to the presence of haptics and a larger battery. 
  • Some familiar features of DualShock 4: While using the DualSense controller, you will find the following friendly features if you had used a DualShock 4 previously; these are 
  • The internal speaker
  • Rechargeable battery, charge and play with USB Type-C
  • lightbar and touchpad
  • Built-in accelerometer and gyroscope.

Console Stand

To position the console vertically, you can use the single flathead screw(also included in the box) to place and fit the stand at the bottom of the console. When you want to position the console horizontally, you can remove the stand from the console and efficiently use the claws of the stand to clip onto the back of the console.
