Haptic Feedback for Controller Triggers
The next controller for the PS5 (not coined as the DualsShock 5 just yet) will be implementing some exciting new features such as adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, giving players a more realistic feeling when performing actions in-game such as pulling back a bow and arrow.
The adaptive triggers can offer “varying levels of resistance” so that you can feel that tension when you shoot off that shotgun or another powerful weapon.
And haptic feedback is essentially super-powered rumble that just adds to the overall gaming experience.
The next-gen controller will also use a USB Type-C connector for charging and it will be a bit heavier than the DualShock 4 but it will still be lighter than the Xbox One contoller with batteries in it.
Sony is Changing The Approach With Storage
Thanks to the PS5 using a SSD (solid state drive), players will be able to choose what parts of their games that they want to download/install. This means that you can pick and choose what parts of the game that you would like to play.
If you just purchased the newest Call of Duty for example, you can download the multiplayer segements instead of the single player so that you can save yourself time and more importantly, storage space.
Jumping into your games will be signicantly faster as well, even when joining friends for an online match –the user interface is completely revamped, creating a more snappy gaming experience.
