Naturally, this current issue some players are actually encountering with the controller bears a striking resemblance to the issue faced by many Switch players with the console’s Joy Cons. Since the Switch’s release in 2017, players reported experiencing the dreaded Joy Con drift, which happens when the controller’s analog sticks would randomly move around and input commands on the console, even without any physical input from the player.
The Joy Con drift problem quickly became a widespread issue, suggesting that the root of the problem lies within the controller’s design rather than some other external factors. This led to multiple class action lawsuits against Nintendo, and the company has since acknowledged the problem and issued an apology. At the moment, it remains unclear whether Sony is already aware of the Dual Sense’s Adaptive Triggers breaking. Nevertheless, the company will most likely develop a statement if more players report the same concern.
Meanwhile, a recent PS5 update introduced a major quality of life improvement for players which own the console. When playing games which include both a PS4 and PS5 version, the console would default to the PS4 version, making players think that the experience on the PS5 is not that different from its predecessor. Probably The latest update is seeking to take care of the issue by notifying players when they’re using the last gen version of a specific game. With that latest update, players can now rest easy that they’ll be playing the proper model of a game at all of times
