THERE ARE SEVERAL FACTORS BEHIND THE PROBLEMS OF CONTROLLING THE NEW SONY CONSOLE
Although at the time we were amazed by the PS5 with the DualSense, a control with very particular characteristics that change the way you play a lot, the reality is that it seems to be a certainly deficient item that could end up in the warranty faster than what. you imagine.
Almost three months after its launch, many users are reporting that the PS5’s DualSense has a drift problem in its left lever – the one that is used the most -. This led to a class action lawsuit that is just in its early stages.
Now, to corroborate what the real problem is, the iFixit team took on the task of opening the control, disarming it and, of course, fixing it so that it works again. Of course, the entire process of repairing the DualSense of the PS5 requires welding, changing parts and other issues that would revoke the warranty of the control.
During the review of the control, the iFixit team realized that the part has a life cycle that the same manufacturer indicates: 2 million cycles when tilting the lever and 500 thousand pulsations of R3 or L3. This means that DualSense has less than a month of real life.
IT IS NOT ONLY THE USE, IT IS THE LACK OF CARE THAT AFFECTS THE DUALSENSE OF THE PS5
According to the analysis carried out by the iFixit team, it also happens that the control often fails due to the accumulation of dust, crumbs and other things that get into the spaces of the DualSense, In other words, they invite you not to eat while you play and take care of the command.
It is worth emphasizing that this is what this group of hardware repair specialists found. What users can argue is that the lifespan of the control is not specified and that this is an issue to be aware of. Finally, the DualSense is a purchase differentiator for those who have a PS5.
Let’s not lose sight of the evolution of this case and see what PlayStation does with this problem with the DualSense that, perhaps, has a solution through recalibration or changing the part, but, the important thing is that it has a useful life that satisfies the user. who bought a PS5.
