The PlayStation 5′ DualSense offers a different feel. In addition to a new look and feel, the controller offers haptic feedback and a new term, adaptive triggers. Although these advanced features are not supported yet, Valve has included gyro and touch support in the DS4. So, it is only a matter of time till PC games can enjoy more of the offerings of DualSense.
It is uncertain whether the DualSense and all of its innovative features can be fully replicated on PC, as all of it would require official drivers from Sony. Maybe we would see fans getting creative to unleash the full power and then some. PC gamers have taken full advantage of other controllers such as the Switch Pro and the Dual Shock 4. Sometimes even more than the official consoles.
The Steam Input came when Steam released the Steam controller( the first one to get an advanced haptic feedback system), which died off very soon. Yet the nifty feature helped gamers to get official support for a wide range of controllers. Including full customisability.
