Sony issued an update to the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller this week, and reports indicate it has improved the rumble effect for PlayStation 4 back compat games.
The DualSense update, issued alongside the PS5’s big firmware update that finally let you move games to USB storage, doesn’t have official patch notes, leaving players to work out what’s changed.
Reports indicate the DualSense’s vibration is now more pronounced when playing PS4 games. Since the PS5 came out in November, it’s felt like the vibration on the DualSense when playing PS4 games was weak compared to how it feels when playing PS4 games on an actual PS4. Obviously, the rumble created by the DualSense, which uses haptic feedback tech, is different than the rumble created by the DualShock 4’s motors.
