The PS4's DualShock controller launched at a slightly cheaper price – $10 cheaper in fact – so there's been a bit of a price hike on that front. But taking into account all of the new upgrades the DualSense features, which have been designed to increase immersion and the overall gameplay experience, that's not entirely unexpected.
The line of peripherals and accessories will release alongside the PS5 on November 19 in Europe, and the earlier date of November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea.
