A new PS5 controller is releasing this holiday season, not from Sony though. For the PS5, Sony ditched the DualShock in favor of the DualSense, a fairly high-tech controller. However, it’s not the perfect controller, and it’s not the greatest controller for competitive gaming. Unfortunately, PlayStation still has no answer to the Xbox Elite Controller, Xbox’s premium controller for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. This could change this holiday season though.
Over on Twitter, SCUF, experts in performance controllers, revealed that its next-gen controller for the PS5 is releasing sometime in the middle of November. Unfortunately, while we have a release window for the controller, we don’t have an exact release date or pricing information.
“We’ve heard you and feel your frustration, and you should know that your enthusiasm for gaming and SCUF is a driving force for us,” said SCUF. “SCUF was not immune to the challenges that have been felt across the entire gaming industry. Due to compounding effects caused by supply chain bottlenecks, we had to push back the summer launch of the PS5 SCUF to mid-November. Thank you for supporting our team as we approach these hurdles together! Stay tuned for more information next month on how you can get your hands on the latest next-gen SCUF for PS5.”
