One of the best parts of the PS5 was the Dualsense controller. The device managed to steal the attention of both critics and gamers who managed to buy the console.
The controller carries a lot of interesting technologies, such as adaptive resistance triggers, tactile feedback, touchpad, microphone, speaker and gyroscope, which are absent from the controller that comes with the new Microsoft consoles, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
Recently the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, has congratulated Sony for the DualSense. As it turns out Microsoft is considering an upgrade of its own, in regards to the controller. Various users of the Xbox ecosystem were invited to participate in a survey that, among other things, asked if they knew about the special features of DualSense. It seems that Microsoft wants to seek some feedback before making an important decision.
It is yet unclear what approach will Microsoft have towards the upgrade of his controller. Especially considering that this change, if made, will be in mid-generation.
Most likely the company is thinking ahead for the next generation of consoles, or possibly the ‘Series 3’ of its Elite Controller. I guess we’ll never know.
Even though it may seem like this is a really high momentum for Sony, it’s pretty peculiar how the PlayStation 5 hasn’t managed to sell that well in Japan, the company’s own home country. Although we doubt the gamers there are prioritizing the Xbox before the PS5.
PlayStation 5 was launched on November 2020. Very few gamers have actually managed to secure a copy of the console. Most of them are waiting for the store shelves to be stocked up by Sony again.
