The PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller has wowed its fair share of developers and publications in the past few weeks. However, it’s battery life could leave something to be desired. According to Multiplayer.it, the DualSense’s battery only lasted for two hours when playing Astro’s Playroom.

The title is very intensive with its haptic feedback but there have been other figures going around. Dave Lee on YouTube states about four hours of battery life from the controller when playing Astro’s Playroom, though this was from leaving it running in an area that produced consistent feedback. Otherwise, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales offered five and a half hours of life since its haptic feedback was relatively normal.

It’s early days yet when it comes to estimating the battery life for the DualSense. But at the very least, with everything that’s going on with the adaptive triggers, haptic feedback and whatnot, it seems that games leveraging this will drain the battery faster than others. The PS5 is out on November 12th so expect more details on its battery life and usage in the coming weeks.
