PS5: DualSense controller starts showing problem that everyone feared!

Disassembled DualSense

More than a month has passed since the official launch of PlayStation 5, and players have had time to put their new DualSense controller to good use, taking advantage of its famous adaptable triggers.

It now appears that with use the first problems arrive, and the players’ reports predict a possible serious hardware problem related to those same innovative triggers that completely transform the gaming experience.

Several forums have been inundated with reports from players indicating that DualSense’s adaptive triggers are starting to malfunction. A player even reveals that his R2 button has stopped working, remaining completely loose during a Spider-Man: Miles Morales session.

There are several other reports that point to problems with the R2 trigger, which apparently begins to lose sensitivity over time, failing to exert the counter-force that makes this command such a different sensory experience.

Despite several complaints along the same lines, it is difficult to assess the extent of the problem. What makes users more concerned is the fact that it appears to be caused by a manufacturing defect and not something that can be resolved with a simple firmware update.

Nintendo Switch also suffers from a recurring problem in its Joy-Con, where analog sticks move randomly without user intervention. Nintendo has already acknowledged the problem and apologized for what happened, but there is not much they can do to resolve it without replacing the controller.

DualSense is the focus of the PS5 experience

The new DualSense controller is at the heart of the PlayStation 5’s next-gen experience, offering players an additional layer of immersion.

The way Sony designed the controller to offer haptic feedback and its adaptive triggers completely transform the connection between the player and the experience, leaving the simple vibration engine that has never been loved by many players.

Triggers are an integral part of this new way of feeling the game, capable of making you feel the different surfaces you walk on or the resistance of the triggers of different weapons, for example.

A malfunction in this system necessarily implies the purchase of a new DualSense, if we want to continue to enjoy what is for many the biggest innovation of the new generation of video games.
