News | The Medium is coming to PlayStation 5

Horror game The Medium will be released on PlayStation 5 later this year.

Developer Bloober Team has confirmed this. The game will be released on September 3rd and should make full use of the DualSense controller features. Earlier this month, a then-unannounced PS5 version was already provided with an age rating.

The Medium launched in January for Xbox Series X and S, Game Pass, Steam, and the Microsoft Store. In the game, players take on the role of a clairvoyant who moves between the real and a spiritual world. Gamers visit an abandoned resort while having visions of a child’s murder. It is striking that players walk around in two dimensions at the same time.


News | DualSense controller gets official Linux support

Sony has released a driver for the DualSense controller that allows the PlayStation 5 controller to be used on Linux.

Earlier this month, Sony released the driver. However, the driver has not yet been officially accepted and so has yet to be rolled out worldwide, but this should be done in the near future.

Thanks to the driver, all the basic features of the PS5 controller will work properly on a Linux operating system, including the regular action buttons, the touchpad, the default rumble and motion sensors. The haptic feedback and adaptive triggers are not yet working.

No official drivers for the DualSense are available for Windows. However, the controller is supported via Steam.


News | Black Dualsense controller for PlayStation 5 photos revealed

The Federal Communications Commission in the United States has released photos of a black Dualsense controller for the PlayStation 5.

The independent committee regulates electronics and regularly records products it evaluates. The nine images show a completely black Dualsense, where the regular controller contains black and white colors.

It is the second time that the FCC has laid down a black version of the Dualsense. It is striking that the buttons were white at the time, whereas the more recent version only contains black buttons.

The controller may be intended for PlayStation 5 development kits and not for sale. It is still unclear whether a black version of the Dualsense will appear.

The regular Dualsense ships with the PlayStation 5, which launches on November 19. In the United States, however, accessories appear to be hitting stores on October 30, well before the November 12 release date.


News | Leaked photos of PlayStation 5 controller show battery capacity

Leaked photos of the Dualsense controller for PlayStation 5 may show the device's battery capacity. The battery is said to contain 1560 mAh.

The photos come from Twitter user Galaxy-666, who claims to make accessories for console makers like Sony and Microsoft. The controller is currently being tested to make peripherals compatible.

If the figures are correct, the Dualsense has about one and a half times more battery capacity than the Dualshock 4, which has a battery of 1000 mAh. According to previous rumors, the controller lasts three to four hours longer than the Dualshock 4.

Sony has not yet officially released specifications or price of the Dualsense. The controller is included with the PlayStation 5, which will be released this fall.
