DualSense, the controller of PlayStation 5, the next-generation game console that Sony recently offered for sale all over the world, has an unexpected design problem. Moreover, this problem can frustrate some users. Sony announced the next-generation game controller DualSense this year before its next-generation console PlayStation 5. The company has put a lot of emphasis on the haptic feedback and adaptive trigger system of the next-generation controller.
In general, users who managed to buy PlayStation 5 also seem to be highly affected by Sony’s next-generation controller. However, this control device called DualSense may not be so “perfect”, especially for those with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
PlayStation 5 Flaw of DualSense
According to Far Cry 6 Game Design Director Ted Timmins, the Sony brand on the back of the DualSense is not located right in the middle of the controller for PlayStation 5. Timmins stated that the Sony inscription located under the USB port stands 1 mm to the left of the center of the remote. Moreover, it is seen that this problem is not limited to Timmins. In the comments made on the popular game site Gamespot, there are also users who stated that the situation is relatively worse. So it can be said that this is not an exceptional error but a design problem in general.
Of course, this is far from being a problem that will harm gameplay or negatively affect the gameplay experience of the players. As we mentioned above, if you don’t have an obsessive-compulsive disorder, you can ignore this little problem. However, for those with this kind of problem or vulnerability, we can say that it can be infuriating.
So what do you think of this design issue in the DualSense controller of PlayStation 5? Do you think it’s a minor problem that can be ignored? Or is it a problem that can annoy the user? You can share your ideas with us in the comments section.
This PS5 controller has the SONY branding ~1mm off-centre to the left, and at a ~1 degree slant and it bothers me way more than it should.
