Sony recently confirmed that the PS5 controller, DualSense, will generate tactile feedback based on the game’s corresponding sound effects.
The news comes from a recent report by Sony on the company’s technology. New details on the next generation control are briefly discussed in the middle of that report, including information on how it will respond to the game’s actions through tactile feedback.
“While DualSense allows for more realistic gaming experiences, developers will also need more time and know-how to create high-quality vibrations,” says the report.
The report continues to note that, to reduce this burden, Sony has implemented a new tactile feedback design targeted explicitly at game makers. As a tool, this should hypothetically allow developers to create vibration waveforms faster than before, allowing them to skip several steps that were previously required for DualShock 4.
The PlayStation 5 will launch in late 2020.
