DualSense™ Wireless Controller

Discover a deeper gaming experience1 with the innovative new PS5™ controller.

Heighten Your Senses™

The DualSense wireless controller for PS5 offers immersive haptic feedback2, dynamic adaptive triggers2 and a built-in microphone, all integrated into an iconic design.

Bring gaming worlds to life

Haptic feedback2

Feel physically responsive feedback to your in-game actions with dual actuators which replace traditional rumble motors. In your hands, these dynamic vibrations can simulate the feeling of everything from environments to the recoil of different weapons.

Adaptive triggers2  

Experience varying levels of force and tension as you interact with your in-game gear and environments. From pulling back an increasingly tight bowstring to hitting the brakes on a speeding car, feel physically connected to your on-screen actions.

Starlight Blue, Nova Pink and Galactic Purple join Midnight Black and Cosmic Red to form a stunning interstellar selection of DualSense wireless controller colours.

Always update your PS5 system software and the wireless controller device software to the latest version.

Updates to the firmware will be released for your DualSense wireless controller from time to time which are necessary for the proper functioning of the controller. You will be notified about new firmware updates when you update your PS5 system software to a later version or when you launch the Firmware updater for DualSense wireless controller app. SIE strongly recommends always installing the latest update as soon as possible after the update is released. Failure to do so might expose your controller to security risks and/or might compromise the proper functioning of the controller.
