DualSense Haptic Feedback & Adaptive Trigger Features Can be Deactivated, Sony Confirms

With the adaptive triggers or the haptic feedback, the DualSense controller of the PS5 has been given various new features. As Sony Interactive Entertainment confirmed, the features can be deactivated if necessary.


Next month, the Xbox Series X/S on the one hand and the PlayStation 5 on the other will herald the new generation of consoles. In addition to the SSD and the 3D audio technology, the DualSense controller is probably one of the most interesting elements of the PS5.

The PlayStation 5 controller has not only been ergonomically optimized. In addition, the DualSense was given features such as adaptive triggers or haptic feedback, with which developers should be given the opportunity to raise their gaming experience to a whole new level.

Even if the following announcement should surely only surprise a few, we do not want to withhold it from you. As Sony Interactive Entertainment confirmed, you will not be forced to use the new features of the DualSense controller. If necessary, these functions can be reduced or completely deactivated.

“In addition, PS5 players will be able to reduce or disable the force of haptic feedback and adaptive triggers on the DualSense wireless controller. PS5 will also include improved audio enhancements to provide players with better spatial awareness,” the official statement said.

The PS5 will be released on November 12, 2020, and can be purchased in two different versions. The digital edition, which is delivered without an optical drive, changes hands at a price of $399. The classic version with a drive, however, will be available for $499.
