We are three days from the launch of the PlaySta­tion 5, and small details are just now being released about this next-gen con­sole. In a recent PS5 FAQ, Sony clar­i­fied a few specifics about the DualSense, includ­ing the expect­ed bat­tery life.

Accord­ing to Sony, the DualSense’s bat­tery is com­pa­ra­ble to that of the Dual­Shock 4, with recharg­ing tak­ing around three hours. The com­pa­ny had to clar­i­fy this, after sev­er­al out­lets that received a PlaySta­tion 5 before its launch stat­ed the DualSense only last­ed two to four hours (in par­tic­u­lar, while play­ing Astro’s Play­room). Since Astro’s Play­room is designed with the DualSense’s new fea­tures, it appears that games tak­ing full advan­tage of its new tech­nol­o­gy may be drain­ing the bat­tery faster than oth­er games. How­ev­er, some of GameSpot’s staff have stat­ed that the DualSense bat­tery life isn’t that poor.

The FAQ also not­ed that, in the future, the DualSense would be avail­able in dif­fer­ent col­ors. Although Sony said they would “even­tu­al­ly” be released, they did­n’t give any infor­ma­tion regard­ing as to col­ors or time­frame for their launch. 

Third-par­ty spe­cial­i­ty con­trollers like fight sticks and steer­ing wheels will work on the PS5 if the spe­cif­ic game sup­ports it. Stan­dard third-par­ty con­trollers like the SCUF Van­tage will not work with the PS5. Sony also says that the DualSense works on PC Remote Play through a stan­dard USB con­nec­tion, although it’s unclear if it will work as a stan­dard PC controller.
