DualSense Wireless Controller
- Haptic feedback** - Feel physically responsive feedback to your in-game actions with dual actuators which replace traditional rumble motors. In your hands, these dynamic vibrations can simulate the feeling of everything from environments to the recoil of different weapons.
- Adaptive triggers** - Experience varying levels of force and tension as you interact with your in-game gear and environments. From pulling back an increasingly tight bowstring to hitting the brakes on a speeding car, feel physically connected to your on-screen actions.
- Built-in microphone and headset jack - Chat with friends online*** using the built-in microphone or by connecting a headset to the 3.5mm jack. Easily switch voice capture on and off at a moment’s notice with the dedicated mute button. ***Internet and account for PlayStation Network required.

Sony should be ashamed of themselves.
Update, if you’re playing Cold War there’s a really cool trigger effect ( you can shut this off) the right trigger collapses like a real trigger. I’m also finding battery life isn’t as bad as they’re saying, but I bough my an extra anyway.
The textured back of the controller has nice implemented details for Sony fans. If you look close enough, it is composed of the face buttons. The shoulder buttons also protrude more than the DualShock 4. The triggers at stock have a very nice smooth pull with some resistance. It will be nice to see how some games utilize the adaptive triggers. The PS button is now the logo from PlayStation 1 instead of a circle which also works as a nice translation to P5 if you really want to get poetically crazy. The touchpad has a little more resistance because the way the surface is treated. Instead of a silky smooth matte surface like the DS4, this one seems like it’s just a matte surface without the silk. The face buttons all have a super nice soft, but tactile press.
Design wise, the controller is creatively constructed. I think a lot of thought has been put into the design than people would like to think and it deserves critique. The white portions of the controller protrude about 1/32” higher than the black striping. At first, I thought I would be able to feel what seems like annoying transitions between the two colors, but surprisingly, the white acts as a literal translation of where your hands will be when you hold the controller. It’s very diagrammatic; kind of like architecture that is designed in a way that when looked at, you can already understand the purpose of what the architect intended with material choices and geometric decisions.
Currently using it on my PC, but so far, it exceeds the Xbox 1 controller I have been at nearly all faucets. Only problem is that some companies like Ubisoft and Epic games seem to think no controller exists besides Xbox, so I sadly have to run Steam as an overlay to even use the dang controller. All in all, this controller is a shout-out to the PlayStation 1 with little Easter eggs and it really is a supremely constructed controller.
Just wanted to make you all aware, currently, DS4 does not work with the dual sense and steam does not work either out of the box.
To get your Dualsense to work with your games through steam:
1. Make sure the controller is connected via Bluetooth
2. Open Steam Settings
3. Click "Controller"
4. Click "General Controller Settings"
5. At the very bottom, you will see "Wireless Controller" in detected controllers
6. Click it and follow the prompts to map each button of the controller to the action it's supposed to do.
Enjoy your games!
Update 11/9/2020. Using steam, you can use the controller for now as a generic controller. Make sure that is selected. You will not have rumble until there is official support. The ps4 pairing method is identical as the ps5 which is good because I am used to it. Would also like to note I played through the entire bio shock infinite without needing a charge and zero connectivity issues. On the ps4 I sometimes have drop outs for a split second and don’t even get me started with the xbone one controller. Overall very solid and feels great in the hand. Good luck gamers
