PS5 DualSense - Midnight Black and Cosmic Red

Head of Xbox Phil Spencer recently sat down with Kinda Funny Games to talk on a bunch of topics (via VGC). In addition to how classics on Xbox Game Pass incentivise reboots, he also complimented Sony for its job with the DualSense controller, and suggested that Xbox fans can look forward to seeing an updated controller in the future.

PS5’s DualSense controller features haptic feedback as well as adaptive triggers, which do a great job of accentuating the feedback obtained from the controller in several ways. Xbox on the other hand has adopted an “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach, after arguably perfecting its modern controller design with the Xbox 360. Phil Spencer states that the team will do some work on the controller, although he doesn’t mention any new things that fans can expect from the controller.

“We’re definitely thinking about different kinds of devices that can bring more games to more places,” Spencer said. “There’s probably some work that we’ll do on the controller. I think Sony’s done a nice job with their controller and we kind of look at some of that and there are things that we should go do.”

Phil Spencer also took the opportunity to talk about VR and other accessories, and suggested that the team doesn’t have any plans of introducing such accessories at this point in time- though this isn’t the first time he’s said something along those lines.
