Sony Interactive Entertainment baru sahaja mengeluarkan video iklan pertama untuk PS5. Dalam video ini, ia memaparkan seorang gadis yang merasai pengalaman gaming yang mengasyikkan melalui kelebihan controller DualSense dan 3D audio.
Bersama-sama dengan trailer ini, Sony turut berkongsikan lebih lanjut di PlayStation Blog tentang bagaimana DualSense, melalui haptic feedback dan adaptive trigger, akan memberikan pengalaman gaming baharu yang tidak pernah dibawakan mereka sebelum ini.
Apa yang menarik ialah kelebihan DualSense ini dijelaskan oleh para pembangun game PS5 yang sedang membikin game masing-masing untuk konsol generasi akan datang itu, yang tentunya sudah menerokai keupayaan controller itu. Korang boleh baca penerangan mereka di bawah (tanpa terjemahan).
Brian Horton, pengarah kreatif Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales:
“The haptic feedback precision allows us to do all sorts of new things. In Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, we’ll be hinting to players which direction attacks are coming from by providing haptic feedback from the appropriate direction on the DualSense wireless controller. What does it feel like to use Miles’s stealth ability? How does a Venom Blast feel? Because of the high resolution of DualSense wireless controller’s haptics system, we can really push the dimensionality of the feedback. For instance, as you hold down Square to do a Venom Punch, you feel Spider-Man’s bio-electricity crackle across from the left side of the controller, culminating in the right side on impact.”
Dinga Bakaba, pengarah Deathloop:
“I’m really excited by the adaptive triggers and the haptic feedback, both features that will bring some physicality in game experiences, and give important feedback. Deathloop being a first-person shooter, we do a lot of things to make weapons feel differently from one another. One I like is blocking the triggers when your weapon jams, to give to the player an immediate feedback even before the animation plays out, which prompts the player in a physical way that they have to unjam their gun.”
Kenji Kimura, pengarah Ghostwire: Tokyo:
“Just as the name “trigger” suggests, the main use of the DualSense wireless controller’s adaptive triggers in Ghostwire: Tokyo is for “active” actions—to shoot or trigger something—and we also use them to create the sensation of recoil. We’re also looking at ways to take advantage of the adaptive triggers to express a sense of persistent energy, or a balance of forces if you will, and for perhaps actions such charging, loading, and a sense of accumulation of power or energy for things.The haptic feedback, in comparison to the vibration function of previous generations, allows us to utilize a much wider range, starting from a very strong vibration that is much more powerful than before, down to extremely light vibration. This way we can offer players very detailed, “textured” nuances. Because of this, our approach is different – it isn’t a transient or a constant vibration level anymore, it allows us to meticulously adjust the feedback throughout the game.”
Mathijs de Jonge, pengarah Guerrilla Games:
“Horizon Forbidden West features new weapons that are designed to feel unique and play a specific role in combat with machines and human opponents. The DualSense wireless controller adaptive triggers will help us to make the weapons feel even more unique and satisfying to use.”
Gavin Moore, pengarah kreatif SIE Japan Studio:
“With the DualSense wireless controller and the power of haptics, we can make the combat [in Demon’s Souls] feel grittier, darker, and deadlier. Now you feel every blow as you strike down your enemies and cast each spell. You’ll experience the force of a titanic boss’ attack as you pull off a well-timed guard. Metal strikes metal when your foes block your attacks or you block theirs. That extra sensory feedback through the controller allows you to know your attack hit home and your perfectly-timed parry was a success, so you can react faster and more decisively.
We can also turn the simple act of pulling a lever to open a gate into a sensory experience. This is something that rumble could never do. It could never replicate the feeling of metal striking metal or fire crackling in your hand as you conjure magic. Haptics [are] integral to the experience, to immersing the player in the world and adding to the gameplay. The visual, aural, and tactile working together takes this new generation of gaming into the future.”
Keith Lee, CEO Counterplay Games:
“As a player, I’m excited to finally FEEL which weapon I’m holding in my hands without looking at any UI. I can also sense where an enemy is spatially, even outside of my field of view.”
Marcus Smith, pengarah kreatif Insomniac Games:
“The adaptive triggers are something we’re excited to feature [in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart]! For instance, the Enforcer is a dual-barreled shotgun type weapon. As you pull the trigger, you’ll fire from one barrel, and you can feel resistance around halfway down the trigger. Need a bigger blast? Pull the trigger through that resistance point and you’ll fire both barrels at the same time.”
Nicolas Doucet, pengarah studio Japan Studio:
“As a developer, we want to surprise with unexpected feelings so the haptic feedback has been our central focus [for Astro’s Playroom]. The concept of “feeling the world” is omnipresent, that’s a significant step forward in immersion. I tried turning haptic feedback off once, and could not believe how much I missed it. It is a game changer for sure!
We use haptic feedback throughout the entire game. The most striking are the surfaces because players will notice within the first few seconds. Astro’s steps can be felt running on plastic, metal, sand, and even splashing in water.”
Ned Waterhouse, pengarah rekaan Sumo Digital:
“Adaptive triggers have enabled us to provide sensations which match what Sackboy would feel in game. For example, when picking objects up, there is a tension to each press which conveys that the little guy is struggling to carry it. Similarly, when equipped with the grappling hook, R2’s ‘Weapon Mode’ makes the player feel like they’re actually firing it themselves.”
Kazunori Yamauchi, presiden Polyphony Digital:
“I think the most effective use of the adaptive trigger [in Gran Turismo 7] is for representing the operation of the antilock brake system (ABS) while braking. A typical ABS releases brake pressure intermittently while the driver applies pressure to the pedal. The adaptive trigger is suited for recreating this pedal feel, and it will allow the player to accurately feel and understand the relationship between the braking force they want and the tire’s grip.
Compared to the rumble force feedback we had in the past, the special character of the haptic feedback is that it has a bigger range of frequencies it can produce.
What this means, is that sound design and tactile design can be handled in a continuous, integrated manner.”
Dalam blog ini juga, Sony sekali lagi mengesahkan yang PS5 akan dilancarkan pada hujung tahun ini. Berbeza dengan Microsoft yang sudah mengecilkan waktu pelancaran Xbox Series X dengan mengatakan yang ia akan dilancarkan pada November, Sony masih belum berani untuk mengumumkan tarikh pelancaran PS5.
