While the DualSense controller isn’t currently available for most of us, that’s to Twitter user @Galaxyrain666, we’re able to get some additional information regarding the controller. According to @Galaxyrain666, who claims to have access to the controller (with pics to back up the claim) has dissected the controller and found it contains a 1560mAH battery.
In comparison to the DualShock 4 controller, which originally included an 800mAH battery and then later updated with a 1400mAH battery, this will give the DualSense controller a longer playtime. That’s assuming that the extra features on the controller, such as the haptic feedback and built-in microphone don’t pull extra power from the battery.
@Galaxyrain666 also mentioned that the analog sticks on the controller feel similar to that of the DualShock 4, the buttons are more “pleasant” to press, compared to the DualShock 4 and that the buttons aren’t lit up as it was previously speculated.
The controller also appears to possess some sort of quick charging technology, but he did not test that out at the time of the tweet. It’s quite interesting to hear and I’m surprised PlayStation hasn’t shut this tweet down as of yet. Still, the consumers are waiting on more info and while it didn’t come from PlayStation, I’m sure we’ll take what we can get. That said, there’s a chance this is all faked, so you may want to take this all with a grain of salt.
The DualSense controller is the next-generation PlayStation 5 controller and will be released (and included with) the PlayStation 5. AS for when that is, or how much it costs, that’s still up in the air as PlayStation and Xbox are playing a game of cat and mouse, keeping us consumers in the suspense.
