Yesterday, Sony introduced ‘DualSense’ – the new wireless controller for PlayStation 5. However, the brand’s rival is the one that trended on Twitter. Turns out, people have been comparing their design.

They were quick to point out its similarity with the “Xbox controller.”
Among the top tweets is from American YouTuber Marques Brownlee (MKBHD) who tweeted that the Xbox controller is ‘Dark Mode’, while the PS5 controller is ‘Light Mode’ as if the two’s only difference is their colors.
Xbox Controller: Dark Mode
PS5 Controller: Light mode
Hey Sony please make a dark version pic.twitter.com/fq9xk4r86n

Another tweet has a photo of the Spider-man pointing meme attached to it which imposes how similar DualSense is to the Xbox controller at first glance.

This guy shared his theory of how the DualSense was created – through the fusion of DualShock 4 and the Xbox controller.

On the other hand, this user thinks that the recently launched controller’s design is more similar to Nintendo’s…
