Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 November 2020
Today I received my DuelSense controller… but alas no PS5 to connect it to until next Thursday :(

I’ll update this review once I’ve had chance to try it out, but I thought I’d offer my opinion on the aesthetics for the time being.

The DuelSense is slightly larger than the DuelShock for the PS4 - this is something I like, as it finally feels like a worthy challenger to my beloved xBox controller (which was the thing I missed the most when I swapped sides from team Microsoft to team Sony back in the XOne/PS4 days).

It also feels more weighty than the DuelShock and I love the design with the teeny tiny PS symbols that adorn it’s beautiful facade!

I would point out that there is no charging cable included, which is disappointing for a premium product (and explains why I’ve only awarded 4 stars). That being said, I’m sure the PS5 will include a charging cable, so it’s not the end of the world.

For me, this is the best looking controller on the market. Whether it is the best performing remains to be seen, and is largely a subjective view anyway. I can’t wait to try out the adaptive triggers and the haptic feedback, but for now, I’ll just have to be content to hold it in my hands and dream of what goodness might await!

Update #1
For anyone reading this and wondering why I've not updated my experience with the DualSense, it's purely due to the fact that my PS5 died within 4 hours of ownership (see my PS5 review on Amazon). As such, I never really got to experience the greatness that others have commented on as I didn't get to play any games. That being said, I can confirm that the experience of using the controller whilst I was setting my PS5 up (before it failed) was really positive - as already commented, the size and weight now feel perfect, and movement just feels more fluid (partly down to the improved PS5 UI, but this beautiful piece of equipment also factors in). Unfortunately, as my PS5 is in console heaven, I'm back to using my DualShock with my PS4... which now feels entirely inadequate!
