At the start of the weekend, the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller shows up in a freshly published unboxing video. In addition, it has been confirmed that the new controller is not compatible with the PlayStation 4.
The highlights of the PlayStation 5 will include the brand new DualSense controller, which will provide completely new gaming experiences with features such as haptic feedback or adaptive triggers.
A few weeks before the official launch of the PS5, Sony Interactive Entertainment began shipping the DualSense controller to selected streamers and influencers. Among other things, US Tech YouTuber Austin Evans, who has almost 4.7 million subscribers, enjoyed the new DualSense controller and presented it in an unboxing video.
In the course of the said video, we are not only given a detailed look at the new controller. At the same time, Evans mentions a few interesting details and says that the DualSense is a high-quality controller, where both the buttons and the workmanship leave a convincing impression. He also states that the DualSense’s analog sticks are a little easier to operate than their Xbox Series X counterparts.
In the further course of his unboxing, Evans said whether the DualSense can also be used on systems other than the PlayStation 5. For example, there is no compatibility with PlayStation 4. The situation is different with Microsoft’s Surface Laptop Go, on which the DualSense can be used extensively without problems. Only using the right analog stick feels “a bit strange” according to the Tech YouTuber.
The DualSense can be used on the Google Pixel 5 phone without any compromise. Here Evans was even able to play Forza via Microsoft’s xCloud streaming service and make use of the various features of the controller. Further details on the DualSense can be found in the video published below.
The PlayStation 5 will be released on November 12, 2020, and will be made available in two different versions. In addition to the classic version, which costs $499, the digital edition is also available for $399.99. For reasons of cost, an optical drive was not used here.
