Best Buy Canada looks to have leaked a new version of the PlayStation 5 Dualsense Wireless Controller. According to the listing on Bestbuy.ca, the “PlayStation 5 V2 DualSense Wireless Controller” will have an upgraded battery life.
The battery life for this controller is 12 hours on a full charge which supports long gaming sessions. That looks to be the only difference between the previous DualSense model compared to this one. Here is what the listing description says:
Compatible with the PlayStation 5
Wireless connectivity ensures you will never get tangled up in wires while gaming
Iconic comfortable design fits naturally in your hands
Haptic feedback replaces the traditional rumble motors for more realistic gameplay
Dynamic adaptive triggers let you experience different levels of force and tension as you interact with your game
Built-in microphone lets you engage with fellow gamers in online play
Headset jack lets you plug in your favourite headset, so you can tune in to your game audio easily
Dual Sense charging station (included) offers easy click-in charging
Exceptional 12-hour battery life, on a full charge, supports long gaming sessions
This could either be an error on Best Buy’s side or Sony is planning to reveal this news soon with CES going on or they plan on announcing it elsewhere. During CES 2024, Sony revealed the new PlayStation 5 ‘slim’ plate covers that feature the Deep Earth Collection line.
Thanks to Reddit for spotting this first.
