Are you tired of constantly recharging your DualShock 4 and hoped that the PS5 controller called the DualSense haa a better battery life? If so, you’ll love what this latest leak claims regarding the PS5 controller battery life.
Over on the PS5 subreddit, a user claims that a person they know has tried out some hands-on time with the DualSense, and they talk about the d-pad and the main buttons feelimg similar to the DualShock 4 with no differences overall, though the Touchpad feels more responsive. This report also mentions how the PS5 controller battery life is said to be 3-4 hours longer tha the DualShock 4!
Its from u/viper_on_fire, the person who had the dualsense in hands and posted it in this subreddit, but then deleted it. they tried the controller and he told me what he felt with it The Buttons: The D-pad and the main buttons feel similar to the dualshock 4 with no differences overall However, the Touchpad does feel more responsive and clicky as he tried it. The triggers are interesting, the L1 and R1 dont click, they push down as they’re triggers, the L2 and R2 however, felt harder to push down than normal, even without the tension points activated. Battery Life: They noted that it averaged around 3 to 4 hours more than the dualshock 4 The Comfort of it: They noted that it is much more comfortable than the dualshock 4 and less bulky overall, they even noted that it was more comfortable than the Xbox one controller in thier eyes. Haptic Feedback and the Microphone: They told me that they didnt get a chance to play with those features around, however they did tell me that they would try it in a later point and that they would notify me. Other Stuff: The Lightstrip is much dimmer than the dualshock 4’s lightbar They also noted that PSVR wont support this controller due to not having a lightbar. Note: i had to delete the previous one due to the fact he didnt like to reveal himself, now that he got to, i decided to repost it
The person who posted this also backed it up by posting a video of a DualSense controller showing the front and back. Same as with any unverified info, treat this one with a bag of salt. That said, I wouldn’t be surprised if the battery thing is true, given one of the major complaints everyone had regarding the DualShock 4 was the battery life; it’s only natural for Sony to address it for the PS5.
Would you be happy with the DualSense if it offered 3-4 more hours of game time compared to the DualShock 4 or is that not enough? Let us know your thoughts on this “hands-on impressions” down below.
