Xbox Series X bosses may copy Sony’s game-changing PS5 DualSense controller

Xbox chiefs have asked gamers if they want the firm to copy the best elements from the amazing DualSense controller on the PS5.

Rival Sony has won huge plaudits for it’s redesigned gamepad, with both fans and reviewers alike astounded by the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

In fact many feel it is so far the defining must-have addition to improve next-generation games since the launch of both the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles in November.

As a result, Xbox is now seeking comments from it’s players, basically asking if they want them to copy the technology and bring out their own Microsoft version of the DualSense.

They don’t want to be left behind by Sony after many years of being used to their Xbox Elite Controllers ruling the roost in console gaming.

The latest Xbox console experience survey has gone out to consumers who purchased either the Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S.

While it has the usual set of standard questions, such as rating your satisfaction level since owning the console, it also specifically asks whether the Xbox Series X “feels next-gen”.

The firm has been under fire from some quarters because disappointed fans want to see the same kickback from it’s controller triggers that players in Fortnite and Call of Duty have in the PS5 version.

We absolutely love the DualSense here at the DS and could never go back now as the realism in shooter games in particular is uncanny. Plus the motion sensors and built-in rumble that coincide with in-game events is excellent.

In the survey Microsoft asks readers to agree or disagree with the statement “I am aware of features on PlayStation controllers that I wish were on the controller that came with this console.”

If enough people demand haptic feedback and adaptive triggers you could soon see an Xbox version of the Sony gamepad.

The firm has borrowed innovations from its competitor’s controllers in the past, such as adding a headphone jack to the Xbox One controller and a Share button.

Sony and Nintendo are no different too.

The PS4 DualShock 4 controller switched to concave analog sticks for the first time in PlayStation history. It was a previous staple on Xbox controllers.

And Nintendo introduced haptic feedback first in the console space with its HD Rumble tech found in the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con.

Back in November, Xbox boss Phil Spencer praised Sony for its work on DualSense.

He said: “I applaud what they did with the controller.

“I think for all of us in the industry, we should learn from each other and the innovation that we all push on, whether it’s distribution of business model like Xbox Game Pass, or controller tech, or the Wii back in the day, which clearly had an impact on us when we went off and did Kinect and Sony did the Move.”
