Best cheap PS5 DualSense controller deals - FAQs

What's new about the PS5 DualSense controller?

A new console needs a new gamepad, and the PS5 DualSense controller has come to take up the mantle from the DualShock 4. The softer, curvier design of the DualSense makes the controller far more comfortable, and though there's a little more weight with all the intelligent haptic feedback packed in here, long sessions with those new grips are far less painful. Plus, you also get adaptive triggers, which developers can program to create resistance effects. 

Is the DualSense PS5 controller worth it?

The DualSense PS5 controller is needed to play PS5 games on the new console, however, you can get away with a DualShock 4 for certain PS4 games as well. You automatically receive a controller with your new console, so is the price of a DualSense worth it if you're considering picking up a second gamepad? 

If you want to play PS5 games with local co-op play, then we say it absolutely is worth the cost. It's the only way you're able to get more people in on the action. If, however, you don't have your eye on any new local multiplayer experiences right now – and would prefer to keep your PS4 library alive a little longer thanks to backwards compatibility – maybe don't lock away the DualShock 4 just yet.
