PS5 Guide: How to Connect a DualSense Controller to Other Devices

The console comes with one DualSense controller (in the box), which is a major upgrade from the previous generation DualShock controller. The DualSense controller offers new features such as adaptive triggers that allow players to feel the tension and feedback of weapons in games.
