PlayStation 5 DualSense wireless controller gets an unofficial early teardown
The DualSense controller has appeared in apparent teardown images courtesy of a Brazilian custom controller company called Evzen Elite, which is based in the southern state of Santa Catarina. The firm shared an extensive range of images of the PlayStation 5 accessory in various states of undress, from being completely intact to down to its barebones (via Instagram/WhatsApp).
Some have opined that the US$69.99/£59.99/€69.99 DualSense looks surprisingly cheap in regard to the materials used to construct the controller. There has also been some concern voiced about the analog controllers and the triggers looking arguably flimsy. Swappable plates, at least where this PS5 peripheral is concerned, also appear to be off the menu judging by the teardown images.
However, the fine detail shown on the DualSense is certainly a plus point, with the textured PlayStation symbols decorating the grips on the side and on the back (the front of the plates is left smooth). It’s unclear if the unofficial images have deliberately left certain aspects of the PS5 accessory hidden, to be later officially revealed in a Sony teardown. It has been rumored that there will be a full PS5 console teardown carried out by Yasuhiro Ootori, Sony’s engineering director, in November.
