The DualSense controller is easily one of the most exciting parts of Sony's new console generation. The biggest redesign for a PlayStation controller since the original DualShock features improved haptic feedback that pushes way past classic "rumble", and its adaptive triggers can simulate kickback from a machine gun, the taut pull of a bowstring, and more. Make sure you play Astro's Playroom if you want to get a good sense of what your DualSense can do when paired up with Sony's latest console - if you've been lucky enough to buy a PS5, of course.
That said, you can get plenty of use out of a DualSense on its own even if you haven't managed to grab a PS5 yet. It's easy to connect a PS5 DualSense controller to a PC, though you won't get the same marvelous haptic feedback that you do on PS5. It's still a great controller even without those extra bells and whistles, thankfully.

Meanwhile, the Xbox Series X controller is more of a refinement of the controller standard that Microsoft has been working on for the better part of two decades. It's a standard for a reason: with textured grips and triggers, an improved D-pad, and a stylish two-tone design, this is arguably the best official Xbox controller available right now, and it also works great with PC.
