Articulated around sensory experiences, the DualSense controller of the PlayStation 5 stands out quite clearly from the DualShock of the previous PlayStations. A sensational controller in many ways.
Significantly different from the DualShock 4 in terms of design, the DualSense has the good taste to keep the fundamentals of its elder so as not to disturb players on PlayStation too much. It nevertheless brings many convincing improvements, which certainly come at the expense of the record lightness of previous Sony controllers, but act as real technological advances. The mention of “haptic” technology is thus not usurped and the adaptive triggers surprise as much as they convince. A success on almost the whole line, in short.
- Grip comfort.
- Sensations provided by haptic technology.
- Adaptive triggers.
- Manufacturing quality.
- Good responsiveness of the wireless link and controls.
- The lightness of the DualShock is no longer (but remains very correct).
- Autonomy correct, but not fantastic (12 hours max).
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude prices from shops whose the VAT policy is not clear (known as “grey” shops, typically in the case of imports from China).
In the absence of a very marked technological evolution during the transition to the Xbox Series generation, the Xbox controller remains the excellent game controller that we have enjoyed for years on Xbox One and PC. Admittedly quite timid, the developments made by Microsoft further improve comfort and precision, enough to make this new Xbox Series controller a benchmark in this area. However, we remain unsatisfied with the on-board vibration technologies, which would have benefited from catching up with those used by Nintendo and Sony on their respective official controllers.
