PS5 release date

The PlayStation 5 is just around the corner, and some lucky souls are getting to try it early.

One of the major upgrades for next-gen is the DualSense controller, which has more prescise feedback for players than ever before. Now we can finally see it in action.

Adaptive triggers produce insane resistance

One of the major additions is adaptive triggers, or the ability for the weight of the trigger to change depending on what is happening in the game.

Sony used the tension of drawing a bow to explain it, but seeing it in action is something else.

Erik Fossum displayed the new triggers on his twitter page.

A WORK OUT: Might be time to strengthen those trigger fingers

This is an amazing feature that will come into its own on so many games.

The primary example would be racing games, where you can start to really feel the car losing grip and sliding as you accelerate. It could totally change the next F1 game.

However, you don't have to have the resistance at 100%, or even on at all.

Sony has announced their extensive accessibility options for the DualSense controller and they will be a massive help to gamers everywhere.

THE FUTURE IS NOW: The DualSense will be hard at work soon

"PS5 players will be able to reduce or disable the force of haptic feedback and adaptive triggers on the DualSense wireless controller. PS5 will also include improved audio enhancements to provide players with better spatial awareness." said Sony in a SIE post.

The PS5 will also offer a voice dictation feature to allow speech-to-text. Screen Reader will provide visually impaired players with options to hear on-screen text, while deaf or hard-of-hearing players can type messages that will be spoken aloud to other party members.

And these features will now support multiple languages!

Sony's next-gen console has a staggered global launch.
