Phil Spencer Says PS5’s DualSense Could Inspire A Rework Of The Xbox Controller

Xbox boss Phil Spencer is a fan of Sony’s DualSense con­troller, and in a recent inter­view he hint­ed the com­pa­ny might be inspired to make a more rich periph­er­al for the Xbox Series X|S.

We’re def­i­nite­ly think­ing about dif­fer­ent kinds of devices that can bring more games to more places,” Spencer said on the Kin­da Fun­ny Gamescast as report­ed by VGC. “There’s prob­a­bly some work that we’ll do on the con­troller. I think Sony’s done a nice job with their con­troller and we kind of look at some of that and think there are things that we should go do.”

This isn’t the first time Spencer has com­ment­ed on the inno­va­tion Sony intro­duced with the DualSense. He men­tioned last year dur­ing the Xbox Series X|S launch that Xbox was keep­ing an eye open for tech­nol­o­gy that could become a com­mon part of a “plat­form that devel­op­ers and play­ers are going to look for.”

If you’re unfa­mil­iar with Sony’s new con­troller, it’s an amaz­ing piece of tech­nol­o­gy which uses hap­tic feed­back, adap­tive trig­gers, and rum­ble fea­tures that deliv­er a far more immer­sive expe­ri­ence in games.

While the Xbox Series X|S con­troller has had an upgrade from the pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tion’s con­troller, it’s only had min­i­mal adjust­ments. It fea­tured new­er tex­tures for grip, redesigned trig­gers, and cap­ture but­ton upon launch.

I am a Platinum lover and an ex- Cod-aholic. I've been playing games since I was 5 years old and I refuse to quit, despite my mother's attempts to get me to. God of War and its successors are my all time favorite games.
