In the blog post, PlayStation’s senior vice chairman of platform planning and management, Hideaki Nishino, states that the corporate opted to stay the familair framework of the DualShock 4’s design, while at an equivalent time adding new functionality and refinements.
“Based on our discussions with developers, we concluded that the sense of touch within gameplay, very similar to audio, hasn’t been an enormous focus for several games,” says the post. “We had an excellent opportunity with PS5 to innovate by offering game creators the power to explore how they will heighten that feeling of immersion through our new controller.”
One of the DualSense controller’s marquee features is its use of haptic feedback instead of the normal rumble motors. Haptic feedback has the potential for more precise vibration feedback allowing greater immersion. The controller also will have new adaptive triggers for its L2 and R2 buttons, so actions like pulling a bowstring to shoot an arrow will feel more impactful.
