Sony shown its new gamepad DualSense for its upcoming console, PS5. The company revealed an image of a black and white model of the new wireless game controller, along with its features.
According to the blog post, the DualSense has adaptive triggers, rechargeable battery and unlike its predecessor, the DualShock, it has a built-in microphone. With the microphone, the need for a headset is over, and the players may communicate with others through the in-built mic from now on.
Comparing it with the DualShock, a physical is not with us anymore. We are talking about Share button, it is gone now. But there will be a new button intead, called Create, which will be used to follow instructions in the games.

The design of DualSense seems pretty different from its predecessor and may also show how things change once PS5 is out. The new controller is expected to change the gaming experience as we know up to now, with its new features.
