At a glance, I like DualSense's proportions better, and the two-tone colors make it stand out more among older DS models. I hope the price does stay $60, because I was worried that the haptics and stuff would turn it into an $80+ investment if you wanted a second one. However, it also makes me worried about the build quality. I'm on my third DualShock 4 (current purchased January of this year).
Battery life remains to be seen, but if it's even slightly worse than the DS4's, people will be rightfully furious.
I saw the price I thought that maybe these was one of those secret "real" prototypes like the ps3 boomerang controller "wish it was real" i wish sony companies got more creative with there controllers. The fact that that controller in the video can transformer and have a screen is insane I would be 100% on board paying a premium for something like that.
I just hope the battery life is exponentially better.
DS4 is fine otherwise, and this look's like it will be fine for me in terms of ergonomics etc. I slighlty prefer asymmetrical sticks, but it's very slight after maining PS4 this time. No issues go back and forth between that and Switch/PC with Xbox One Elite pad. Just annoying to have to own two DS4s, despite not playing a second of local MP this gen, to avoid playing with a wire when I binge games on the weekends.
I really want to try this as soon as it is available, I do not imagine playing my games without the rumble feature enabled, I have seen games that implement it horribly where the DS4 only rumbles for the sake of it, but it is not well implemented and it feels like an after thought. Hope PS5 includes a few demos to feel the controller haptic features fully.
The most interesting thing about this interview is him being secretive about what the "Create" button does. It's not the first time i've read someone talk about it in that enigmatic manner.
I've heard rumors that one of the things the "Create" button does is allowing you to send a slice of gameplay to a friend so he or she can play it even if he/she doesn't have the game. That would be pretty cool and is a smart way of promoting your games for free in the style of what photo mode has done for many PS4 exclusives.
