At Gran Turismo Sport, the PS5 controller is a completely new experience, which is what PlayStation boss Jim Ryan said in a recent interview. One of the reasons is the haptic feedback of the PlayStation 5 gamepad. The haptic elements should give players a wider range of feedback from the controller. Especially in racing games, this makes it noticeable whether you are on the asphalt or on a gravel road with your vehicle. The PlayStation 5 will be launched at the end of the year.
In a recent interview, PlayStation boss Jim Ryan discussed his first experiences with the new PS5 controller. He raves about his gaming session with Gran Turismo Sport. Speaking to Business Insider Japan, he says that the PS5 gamepad is a "completely new experience". As a reason, he lists the new key innovations that Sony promises for the controller. The gamepad uses haptic feedback that replaces the previous Rumble technology.

The haptic elements should give players a wider range of feedback from the controller. The PS5 controller also offers adaptive triggers. Developers are given the opportunity to vary the resistance of the keys sensitively. During his jaunt in Gran Turismo Sport, Ryan could feel the various road surfaces exactly. The feedback from the controller makes it noticeable whether you are driving on asphalt or a gravel road.
When he switched back to the PS4 with the Dualshock 4, this "sensation" had completely disappeared. Already at the presentation of the first controller details, Sony announced that "a crash into a wall feels significantly different than a duel on the soccer field". With the new features, the screen action should be simulated far better than before. However, it will still take some time before you can touch the new PS5 controller yourself: the new console has been announced for the end of 2020.
