The rivalry between Microsoft and Sony in the console world is nothing new for anyone! Especially when we are so close to launching a new generation already at the end of 2020. Having said that, while Microsoft has already revealed the final design of its new console, Sony just revealed the new controller… Something that quite honestly, seems very much based on that that Xbox has been on the market for a few years.
Of course, DualSense brings many improvements, being the most 'different' controller of all DualShock generations ever launched on the market by Sony itself, bringing several very important aesthetic and ergonomic improvements for the future of the Japanese giant's effort in this market.
However, it is also obvious that this would bring some criticism to the table, especially from Microsoft's side! Still, in a very curious way, the latest reviews from the Xbox world not so much in relation to the design of the new controller, but in terms of technical characteristics.
Former director of Xbox criticized the new PS5 controller hard and ugly
So, at a time when the PlayStation vs Xbox war is entering new levels of rivalry, it turns out not to be surprising to see former Xbox department director Albert Pennelo come to talk a little about Sony's latest revelation.
Thus, using the famous social network Twitter, Pennelo lamented the fact that DualSense is more based on what Xbox has on the market, on what Google presented with the streaming platform Stadia, which in his opinion, is the most comfortable command of today.
In addition, he also criticized the fact that the new PS5 controller is supported by triggers when it is on top of something. However, he also criticized some design lines that can cause discomfort in long gaming sessions. Also questioning whether the microphone is really a good idea, and whether the controller will be backwards compatible with PS4.
– Resting on the triggers. 🙁
– I'm worried about the partline that runs down the grips. If you have larger hands, this could create some discomfort in the Thenar.
– Mic seems good in theory how useful in practice?
– Does this work with VR?
– Back compat with PS4?

It's an interesting conversation to put more emphasis on the console war, but it's mostly criticism based on speculation, since no one has yet tested Sony's new controller.
