    Is basically a Xbox One ripoff. Sony is so original.

    Seeing the lightbar not there makes it seem like this was sonys plans for the dualshock 4 controller back in 2012 but they came up with the lightbar. On release

    I just do not think they remove the light bar just to improve battery life. There's definitely no use of it if the touch pad become the touch screen because now they can just emit light through it for old ps4 titles.

    The touch pad is soo much easier to press than the little awkward button on the xbox controller.

    Happy they removed the light bar, consumed the charge. Now hopefully there are longer times in between the charges.

    If PS4 games can be played on PS5, we can save mOnEh by buying new PS4 games for the PS5

    Not the lightbar... Those times playing fallout 4 and using pipboy light in game and on my controller were so amazing to me.

    Man I loved the light. I remember playing local multiplayer in little big planet and you can choose the color you want. Same goes for diablo with the standard blue, red and green colors. When the screen goes dark it looked like having little Christmas lights in your hands

    I'm new to using a DS4 to play PC game and never really use other controller before, but I know I want a controller with better bumper and trigger. And I don't think adaptive triggers crap is going to be better.

    They should replace the touch pad with a touch screen.
    Small menus, mini maps and lots of other things could go there. They can even use 1fps screen to save battery.

    The exact reason PlayStation will never be number one for me. I have hated this controller design since psx and Sony yet again refuses to change anything...

    I was actually hoping the light bar would stay and we could finally choose a permanent color. Some of the colors set in there are pretty awesome and it definitely made the controller unique.

    Light bar was needed for psvr games, looks like old ps4 vr games (like astrobot) will be unsupported on ps5.

    I don't know why everybody is so hyped about the new controller ? is less ergonomic and more simillar to the xbox one should retain the 45 angle between l1 r1 and grips in order to fit naturally in the hand ..not to be at no angle like the xbox one is and imossible to touch the l1 r1 in a normal hand position.Also on the belly of the controller it misses the gap for the fingers the dual shock 4 overall i really hope they work more on the ergonomy and natural hand placement .

  • Alexander Ulv

    Let's tell Sony we miss the lightbar. It would help me find the controller in the dark, and light up enough if I lose my Juul in the couch. Ya feel me?
    Edit: Maybe remove the speaker, it was not cool.

    Can we have a slider on the DS5? Some games require you to dial a setting and keep it there for some time, like an airplane throttle that has to be kept at 75%.
    MY old Gravis eXterminator had a slider and it was quite useful on some PC games!

  • apex XD
    apex XD 22 days ago

    they should keep the light bar and give the option to turn it completely off instead of just dim so if u like the light bar u can have it but if the ps4 is like "dualshock 4 battery low" thrn u can turn it off and play longer
