The PlayStation 5 has been released in several regions, totally initiating the next generation of video gaming consoles. Along the side of Sony’s next-gen console is the DualSense controller, and owners are discovering more and more features included in the gadget.
The PlayStation 5 is currently available in South Korea, New Zealand, Australia, Mexico, Canada, Japan, and the United States. The new system is scheduled to launch in the rest of the world today, November 19, which is likely to provide more fans the experience of the powerful console.
For those who already have access to the PlayStation 5, the latest discovery about the next-gen console’s DualSense controller is its capability to conveniently and instantly shut off all audio. This feature comes in handy when players need to speak or hear someone or listen for things like doorbells and alarms.
Players can opt to mute everything simply by pressing and holding the microphone button. Strategically situated just below the PS button, the mic mute button will blink orange if players have done the process correctly.
Once players want to listen to the game once more, the sound can instantly be returned with just one push on the button. PlayStation 5 players are constantly discovering new features as its worldwide launch gradually continues. However, not all of what they’re discovering is good, as some owners are reporting that their DualSense controllers are not properly charging.
The audio toggle feature is a necessary addition to the PlayStation 5 because of the system’s new, deeply engaging 3D audio technology. New games such as Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War are already utilizing this remarkable feature. The DualSense controller includes the mute button to an array of other new features such as haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
The DualSense continues to apparently inspire the gaming community as a whole, thanks to its unique features which are lacking from the Xbox Series X controller. For players who are still hoping to experience the PlayStation 5 but want to try the DualSense controller, fans have found that it can be used on the PC.
The worst problem with the next-gen consoles is that it’s almost impossible to find both the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. Bots have allegedly infested online orders, with the CEOs of both Sony and Microsoft publicly apologizing for the shortage of supplies. As some are having trouble securing preorders in time for the holidays, the situation is leaving a lot of fans disappointed.
