On January 11, Finest Purchase Canada posted listings for an C$89.99 DualSense “V2” controller, which, at a look, seems to have many of the similar bells and whistles as the usual DualSense. The haptic suggestions and adaptive triggers are nonetheless there, in addition to options made normal with the PS4’s DualShock 4, just like the headphone jack and touchpad. Nevertheless, it additionally comes with a free perk within the type of a charging station that provides “click-in charging,” and notes a 12-hour battery life in comparison with the unique’s roughly six hours. When you’re an American wanting on the $89.99 worth level and questioning why it prices extra, do not forget that most issues value extra in Canada due to the change price (the unique DualSense prices that a lot). So it’s seemingly that the DualSense V2 will value the identical $69.99 you’ll find the authentic for within the States.
