What about the performance comparisons that we're all waiting for?

I imagine they're not allowed to do that until the systems are publicly available.

Wow, they are GUSHING over the DualSense. Bravo, Sony!

Holy shit the PS5 is huge. Almost comically so. That controller looks great though, can't wait to try it out. Would be nice if they released one with the analog sticks in the right spot.

They are in the right spot ;)

I can see the guys at Hori doing an Xbox like layout for the DS in the future. They know some people ask for the same controller but with the analog located above the D-Pad.

Really sucks to be watch a video on VGChartz and a video ad starts running in the background, overlaying the audio.

Sounds like they both prefer the PS5 controller....

So the haptic feedback of the DualSense is actually comparable with the HD Rumble from the Switch Pro Controller? Well, it wouldn't be the first time that Sony copied from Nintendo ^^

Last time I saw someone swing and miss that badly they spun around in a circle before falling down. It may have been a cartoon..

Comparable in the sense that it is haptic feedback. But DF are clear: it is much better implemented in the Dual Sense and the controller is revolutionary. "Nice" try though.

If you watched the video they basically said its the next level of HD Rumble. Basically its a improvement on the Switch HD rumble..... so what you might expect to get from a Switch 2, in the future or such.

Not only did they copy it, they also kicked it to the next level. Along with haptoic feedback on the triggers and all that for the same and in time probably a lower price.
