Sony’s DualSense wireless controller is one of the most advanced controllers the company has developed so far, as it comes as a built-in accessory with the new PlayStation 5 gaming platform and features many functions that make playing games on the new console a very immersive experience.
Here’s everything you need to know about Sony’s DualSense Wireless Controller:
PlayStation 5 compatibility:
The DualSense wireless controller comes in the box when you purchase the PlayStation 5 console, and this means that you do not need to purchase an additional one, unless you want to share the gameplay in the new PS5 console with your family members or friends, and with that you can use the controller to play all PS5 and PS4 games that run in the PS5 but cannot connect to the PS4 console, however, you can connect to a computer wired via a USB-C cable, or wirelessly via Bluetooth.
If you are thinking of using an old DualShock 4 controller on the new PS5 platform, you may want to think about this again. While the DualShock 4 controller can connect to the PS5 platform and play available PS4 games through backward compatibility, you cannot Use it to play all PS5 games.
Sony states that this is because the DualShock 4 controller does not support haptic feedback and adaptive triggers like DualSense.
