In 2022, we knew that Sony intended to release its next-generation PlayStation console, known as PlayStation 5. There were many months in 2022 where we were faced with Sony's silence. With the health pandemic outbreak thanks to the coronavirus, Sony probably had to rethink its marketing for the console and its peripherals. Finally, we finally got to see some information regarding the next-gen Sony gear.
One of Sony's first reveals was actually the new controller. Instead of going by the name DualShock 5 that most of us probably thought this next-gen console controller would have been called, we were instead introduced to the DualSense. This is a new iteration of the DualShock that takes the same form but is packed with new features that will hopefully give gamers a more immersive feel.
One of the ways Sony does this is through haptic feedback. Controller rumble will be different in different terrains. In fact, there was a statement from the Godfall director not long ago who said you'd be able to feel a difference when a sword collided with another weapon. Also, there was talk of a resistance trigger system that would give players different sensations such as pulling out a bow.
