Linux has received an official driver that allows you to use DualSense, the PS5 controller, on their operating systems It was Sony itself who apparently released this file to make the next-generation controller compatible with video games that can be run on its open source system. Yes, said pilot is still under review, so we will not be able to download it yet.
With this pilot, you can use DualSense to play pretty much the same way as any other control, because in addition to the basic commands, compatibility with the device's LEDs has also been added, with its motion sensors, with the touch panel, with battery and with vibration This is similar compatibility to what was recently released with Steam, including connectivity via USB cable or Bluetooth
There are more and more systems in which you can use the PS5 controller, even if for the moment its main novelties remain exclusive to the next-generation console from Sony – Liver vibrations and adaptive triggers have not yet been introduced on other platforms like PC because , among others, it forces the developers themselves to adapt their games as they do for the PS5 version We will see if in the future he will end up being able to take advantage of these features also on a computer
The funniest, only if the DualSense can be used without problems on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS and even on Nintendo Switch via an adapter, PS5 controller is still not supported on PS4 Actually, la PS4 DualShock 4 also cannot be used to play native games on Sony's next-gen console It's true, the DualSense is compatible with the PS3 and you can connect to it as an additional Bluetooth controller to read your entire catalog
