First, there’s the controller. Every new PS5 includes one DualSense controller. Unlike the DualShock controllers, the DualSense has a two-color scheme and a more ergonomic design. The controller also features adaptive triggers, a built-in microphone, and haptic feedback, with some games taking advantage of the controller’s features to provide greater immersion.
In addition to working with the PS5, the DualSense can wirelessly connect to Android and iOS devices. The controller also connects wirelessly to a PC if your computer supports Bluetooth. If not, you can connect the DualSense to a PC with a USB cable.
The White controller usually retails for around $70, but sometimes you can find it for sale for $60 – same goes for the new midnight black and cosmic reds unveiled in May. The DualSense is a good successor to the PS4’s controller, given all the improvements that come with it. However, if you already have a PS4 or a DualShock 4, you can still use the controller on the PS5, but it will only work while playing PS4 games.
