A new malfunction of the PS5 DualSense controller was discovered, which made PlayStation players quite angry. Buying a PS5 before Christmas has proven to be a daunting task for many, and PS5 stock seems to be slowing down by 2021. That said, even if you’ve managed to get an elusive machine, an alleged breakdown with its fancy new controller can still ruin good times . Since the PS5 was released back in November, there have been several reports of problems with the next-generation piece of hardware, but luckily these issues seem to range from unusual to not-so-serious.
In addition, there are reports of problems with the controller. For the PS5, Sony broke away from its DualShock naming convention to release DualSense, a significant and more expensive upgrade to the DualShock 4 that comes with new features like haptic feedback and customizable triggers. And for the most part, this move paid off for Sony. One of the biggest points of conversation about the next generation so far has been how great the DualSense controller is, or more precisely, some of its above-mentioned features. However, there also seem to be some issues with the controller.
We reported drift drift issues last month, and now users – on Reset Era, Reddit, YouTube and others – report that adaptive triggers on their controller are breaking and loosening. At the moment, the problem seems to be unusual and seems to be the result of the trigger spring loosening. Typically, parts loosen when the controller falls, but reports claim that the controller is not dropped once.
Of course, take all this with a grain of salt given that we are dealing with reports from mostly anonymous users, however, where there is so much more smoke there is usually a fire as well.
At the time of publication, Sony Interactive Entertainment did not comment on the reports or issues they profess. If this changes, we will certainly update the story with what is anticipated.
