Leakers seem to be everywhere these days. In fact, one such leaker seems to have leaked new info about the DualSense controller for the upcoming PS5. And by info, I mean improvements over the PS4’s DualShock 4.
The Age of Leaks Isn’t Over
Recently, some random soul seems to have leaked details of the PS5’s new DualSense controller. Specifically, these details seem to detail significant improvements in the DualSense over the previous DualShock 4 controller for the PS4. The biggest of these improvements is battery life. Apparently, the DualSense’s battery allegedly has a max capacity of 1560 mA of power. This is in contrast to the DualShock 4’s 800 mA battery, which was later upgraded to 1000 mA.
What this means for those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, is that the DualSense will 3 to 4 hours more battery life than the DualShock 4. I don’t have to tell you that this is a big improvement, but I am. After all, being able to play for an additional couple of hours before recharging is a big plus in my book.
The DualSense also has some more improvements in addition to the improved battery life, but these ones are bit more subtle. The buttons are apparently “more pleasant” to press, and the touchpad is more “responsive” and “clicky”. The L1 and R1 buttons allegedly no longer click, but now press down like the L2 and R2 triggers. Speaking of which, those triggers now apparently need a bit more force to pull down and in general feels more weighty than the DualShock 4. I guess the goal of these changes to the triggers is to make them feel more like you’re pulling the trigger of an actual gun in FPS games.
Don’t Forget the Salt!
Of course, keep in mind that all leaks are subject to change and should be taken with some salt for taste. At least though, this particular leaker seems to know what they’re talking about, and apparently somehow has access to a DualSense controller if that Twitter post is anything to go on. I don’t know about you, but this particular leak seems a lot more trustworthy than others.
The DualSense controller seems to have a bunch of improvements over the DualShock 4, big and small. While we can’t confirm if this leak is 100% accurate, it seems trustworthy enough. At the very least, it increases the hype for Sony’s PS5. We’ll just have to see if this leak pans out Holiday 2020.
