+More gamepads!
Reasons to avoid
-One comes in the box

A single DualSense Wireless controller is included with both the PS5 console and the PS5 Digital Edition but, if need be, you can get hold of an extra one for some local multiplayer action, or if you just fancy a spare.

The DualSense controller is a dramatic improvement over the DualShock 4, and features adaptive triggers and haptic feedback that can have a game-changing effect when performing key actions in your favorite titles. Haptic feedback can also create some incredibly realistic sensations in your hands, like the feel of rain fall, for example. 

Whether you love or hate the look of it, the DualSense is a big departure from its predecessors and you can't use the DualShock 4 on PS5 when playing PlayStation 5-specific titles.
