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.
