We've gotten a first real look at the PS4 and PS5 controller side-by-side. Revealed after a Geoff Keighley livestream about the new DualSense controller, the presenter posted a side-by-side comparison of the two:
As expected, the PS5 controller does look a tad heftier than the DualShock, but not hugely so. Keighley mentioned during the stream that the controller felt slightly heavier, but only slightly. After a reveal in April, we've learned a lot about the new controller's haptic feedback, adaptive triggers (and a little less about its still-mysterious Create button). Microsoft has already revealed the Xbox Series X and its controller, and we've broken down how these new controllers compare to each other.
