Galaxy 666 also talked about how the PlayStation 5 controller feels, saying that players will not be disappointed.


The fact that the PlayStation 5 controller's battery capacity is much higher than the DualShock 4's battery doesn't really come as a surprise. Earlier this month, rumors suggested that the DualSense battery life lasts around 3 to 4 hours more than the DualShock 4, among other things.

The Buttons: The D-pad and the main buttons feel similar to the dualshock 4 with no differences overall However, the Touchpad does feel more responsive and clicky as he tried it.

The triggers are interesting, the L1 and R1 dont click, they push down as they're triggers, the L2 and R2 however, felt harder to push down than normal, even without the tension points activated.

Battery Life: They noted that it averaged around 3 to 4 hours more than the dualshock 4

The PlayStation 5 DualSense controller promises to be a real gamechanger, as many developers, like Arkane Studios, are loving the controller's features like haptics feedback and active trigger

It's got a lot of nice features, with the haptics feedback and the active triggers. We're a first person game, we really value immersion a lot in our games and being able to really feel the weapon in your hands, its reaction, how it reloads, how it reacts to reloading... I think every game designer in the world that got their hands on the DualSense think it's a lovely toy, and I think that the players will also enjoy those functionalities. For us, again, targeting immersion it's a really nice opportunity we're excited about, so between power and the controller, it's very, very exciting.

The PlayStation 5 and DualSense controller launch later this year worldwide. A precise release date has yet to be confirmed.
