As previously reported, the gamepad has a more detailed vibration feedback (haptic feedback – as in modern smartphones) and dynamic trigger resistance, which allows you to “feel the pulling force of the bowstring” (Xbox already has a similar technology, but the triggers there simply vibrate rather than change responsiveness).
On the front panel, a new “Create” button has appeared instead of the usual “Share”. She will be responsible for some innovative way of creating game content, which Sony will talk about later.
DualSense also has built-in microphones that allow you to use voice communication in games without a headset.
As you can see from the pictures, the light bar, which is needed for PS VR and motion control, now looks different – it seems to be under the touch panel, highlighting it on the left and right.
Judging by the photo, the gamepad will connect to the console and charge via USB-C. This standard has already been adopted by Microsoft in the Xbox Series X and Nintendo in Switch.
Sony first decided to make the gamepad two-color, and the PS button now looks like the PlayStation logo, which protrudes noticeably from the case.
Update PlayStation Product Manager confirmed that the controller still has a standard headphone jack. It is simply not visible on the rendered renders.
After the announcement on the network almost immediately there were gamepad variations in other colors made by the players themselves. For example, a controller may look like this without white inserts.
