Why the larger battery in the DualSense means virtually nothing.

Its true, the upcoming DualSense controller will feature a 95% larger battery than its predecessor, the DualShock 4 did on release. However those numbers are dramatically lower when you look at the bigger picture.

Not only did the Dualshock 4 itself receive an upgrade from the original 800mAh to a much more healthy 1000mAh but even that capacity in relation to the Dualsense 1560mAh is somewhat of a fake statistic. Yes the battery is technically 95% larger than the original Dualshock 4 and 56% larger than the "upgraded" Dualshock 4 but with the addition of new features such as haptic feedback, adaptive triggers and a built in microphone we see that difference being a lot lower than an extra 56% battery life.

From the pure numbers on paper the battery life itself should be pretty much the same as the DualShock 4. Either way though the DualSense 4 appears to be the next step in gaming controllers with the features listed above setting it apart from other controllers on the market. Aside from the Haptic feedback which is said to allow players to "feel" things like in game rain, the beggest advancement is the adaptive triggers. With Sony recently announcing that the Dualshock 4 wont be compatible with PS5 games, it seems we all have to be a little "adaptive" and get used the new design quick smart.

We for one are all for it. These new controllers look great and are backed by game changing technology.
