The Dualsense controller for PS5 has a lot to live up to. As the next evolution of the DualShock controller, a long lineage of PlayStation controllers that dates back all the way to the beginning of the console itself, it's undoubtedly got some big shoes to fill.
Well, thankfully it's full to the R2 button with cool features, all of which are designed to bring you more into the game world than ever before.
You want immersion; you got immersion. Haptic Feedback will allow for a rumble which lets you feel the ground underneath the car you're driving in, and Adaptive Triggers mean you'll be able to tell the difference between a gun in good condition or bad condition just by trying to fire it.
It turns out that it's not just gamers that are excited about this particular upgrade though, even the professionals are excited to see what the PS5 controller can do.
Dying Light 2 designer loves the PS5 DualSense controller
Push Square had a chat with Tymon Smektala, who is the lead game designer at Techland who are the people behind Dying Light 2. In the chat, they asked about his thoughts on the DualSense controller, and he seemed very positive indeed.
"I absolutely love it. It's an amazing design, as futuristic as we should expect in 2020 - the sci-fi times we already live in. As for the shape, we need to see how it will fit in the hands, but looking at it I get very good vibes - I think it has a chance to be one of the best in history, just big enough but neat & funky at the same time."
That's a fairly hyped up way of looking at it, but he also went into the specific features of the device too.

"I also think that the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers can be real game-changers, way more than people expect right now. I'm curious about the overall sturdiness of the thing.
It looks so sleek I wonder if it will survive accidental falls and rage quits. But all in all, even though I know the initial opinions were varied, for me, it's absolutely fantastic."
It's a little bit different hearing from somebody that makes games for a living versus any of us who just play them instead.
Knowing that a developer is this excited for PS5 really helps to make the prospect that bit more exciting, not that we really needed the extra push.
