We Already know DualSense has some familiar PlayStation features – a D-pad at the top and four face buttons, two analog sticks at the bottom, four triggers and a touchpad in the middle of the PS4’s DualShock 4, and Evan’s video redesigns all those features and controller .
But Evans did not use the controller with the PS5, so we’ll not see anything like DualSense’s new haptic feedback and custom triggers in action. Although the dual-sense box only lists compatibility with the PS5, Evans was able to connect the controller wirelessly to the Surface laptop Goku and wirelessly to the Google Pixel 5. He was also able to play a game at Microsoft’s XCloud Cloud Gaming. Service on pixel.
The Evans PlayStation 4 Pro detects dual sense via a wired connection, but the controller is unable to do much on the PS4 Pro except to extract sounds from its onboard microphone. The PS4 Pro also seemed to recognize DualSense as a wireless controller, but the controller did not seem to be able to do anything when connected to the wireless. Tried to plug the Evans DualSense controller into the Xbox Series X, but it was only able to charge.
Evans also disconnected the dual sense and examined the circuit inside the controller, revealing that it had a 1,560 mAh battery.
Evans discovered that there were small bumps on the back of the dualSense, which were smaller versions of the PlayStation’s triangle, square, circle and cross-face buttons.
Overall, DualSense seems like a good update to the reliable DualShock 4 and I can’t wait to get my hands on it when my pre-order arrives. DualSense and PlayStation 5 will officially go on sale on November 12th.
