In addition to confirming that PlayStation 5 will be released at Christmas 2020, Sony has unveiled the first details on the DualShock 5, the new controller that will accompany the console on the market and will be the ideal successor to the DualShock 4.
The fifth generation of the DualShock controller will be equipped with a system for haptic feedback and adaptive triggers (Adaptive Triggers), both technologies will allow increasing the sense of immersion thanks to a more realistic vibration system (which marks the farewell to technology rumble as we have known it up to now on Sony controllers) and an improved L2 / R2 trigger management capable of varying according to the game situation.
Sony used racing games as an example, citing Gran Turismo Sport and confirming that the title runs on the PS5 Dev Kit, however it is not clear if the Polyphony Digital racing will also be released on the new console. There are already many first and third-party developers in possession of the new controller and the teams are starting to experiment with the features of DualShock 5 so as not to be unprepared for the arrival of the new system.
Definitely two important new features that demonstrate Sony’s commitment to continuously improve the technology behind its consoles and accessories.
