"It has a better grip and is quite more comfortable than the DualShock 4," they point out in their first impressions.
They also show some discontent with the base that comes inside the box that serves to put the console horizontally or vertically and assure that "it is a bit complicated" to join both parts.
From IGN they are also clear that the console is really heavy and is not meant to move it much. In the end you will have to decide on a specific site and he will live there permanently.

Regarding the hand, the sensations are practically the same as those of Cnet:"it has a very pleasant touch and feels in the hand much better than the, PlayStation 4 controller".
Specialist journalist Geoff Keighley has also received his unit and has left his first impressions in a tweet, which takes a first look at the connections offered by the console and drops his first impressions: "it is a very large console and quite heavy, but all that weight is felt at the bottom, letting the upper area, where the fan is, feel free and can breathe better."
Popular YouTuber Marques Brownlee has also been one of the lucky ones to receive the console and adds to the widespread trend:"it's a very tall and heavy console, but it looks really good." In addition, he makes it clear that when he saw her on video, the sensations were quite negative, but having her in front "completely changes and is quite beautiful".
The YouTuber also talks about the DualSense, which considers that it has a very good design where its good grip and the obvious improvement of its triggers stand out but, obviously, we will have to wait for how it behaves in games, which is the important thing.
As for the National Press, Hobby consoles has also received a PlayStation 5 for unboxing and in addition to a thorough analysis on the ports that the console has to connect them anywhere, they also add to the widespread trend: it is very large, but has a rather striking design.

The controversy of the 'riders' is only "the tip of the iceberg" of the digital platforms sector that must be regulated, according to employers and workers
The technological employer Adigital and the Union Comisiones Obreras agree: digital platforms must be regulated. A conclusion that also coincides with the Professional Association of autonomous Riders (APRA), one of the different associations that bring together the dealers, and the Federation of autonomous riders ATA. The four entities agreed on this regulation during a forum organized by the International University of La Rioja (UNIR).
However, how this regulation is carried out, and what relationship the dealers have with the platforms: whether workers linked to labor legislation or self-employed self-employed, is the great debate in which the agreement is very far, as was evident in this round table organized by videoconference.
The Supreme Court found Glovo's delivery agents (glovers, as the company calls them) to be false self-employed by stating that the messaging platform "is not a mere intermediary in the contracting of services between shops and delivery agents", but that its relationship with delivery agents "has a working nature". This judgment sets the legal precedent for an issue that had generated judicial decisions in both directions.
The Government intends to draft a Riders law that according to the Minister of Labor, Yolanda Diaz, will in the sense of considering them Wage Earners and not autonomous. "A person who rides a bicycle is not an entrepreneur, he is a simple worker," Diaz said after the Council of Ministers on September 29.
Glovo has already announced that it could stop its expansion plan in Spain, which included reaching 400 new locations, "if regulation makes it economically unviable".
Both the adigital technological employer and the unions agree that the situation of the riders is just a sample of the "legal insecurity" that lives the digital platforms sector. "This is the tip of the iceberg, I have no doubt that it should be regulated on platforms and their impact on work," said the general director of the employer, José Luis Zimermann.
Another thing is whether that regulation should be done from a labor or commercial point of view (like a self-employed worker). "We do not believe in that duality according to which the Labor figure is security and commercial insecurity, there has to be a fit between both", added The Spokesman of Adigital.
For the confederal secretary of Youth and new forms of work of Workers ' Commissions, Carlos Gutiérrez, work through platforms is "a black hole" on which it is not known how many workers depend and it is based on its functioning that it can be determined whether the relationship is labor or self-employed. "Those people who are under the dependence and control of the company, whether digital platform or not, must continue to be protected by the right to work," he argued.
However, for the Professional Association of Riders Self-employed (APRA), one of the organizations that group the dispatchers, the preferred option is commercial, since many of their partners need "the flexibility and freedom that give the platforms", said its president, Jordi Mateu, who said he would charge between 10-15 euros per hour, which means about 1,500 euros a week.
"Politics has been dedicated to tarnishing the riders' name in public opinion, they say we are precarious. The reality is that we want to be autonomous, but with greater protections," Mateu added. A position that contrasts with other delivery groups, such as riders X Rights, who demand to be salaried.
For the representative of Workers 'Commissions, the model of regulation to be applied must distinguish" when the technology is being used to coordinate " and if there are "systems of control to workers", which would associate it with the Labor field, and when the work of the application is "secondary" and the relationship is commercial. "And it seems good to me that some workers want to be autonomous or work, but this goes beyond the will of the parties, it is a question of social order," added Carlos Gutiérrez.
The director General of Adigital admitted that "the application can not be an element of control and penalty", and that we must "eliminate those circumstances that are clearly of a relationship of dependence", but without forgetting that this "digital intermediation" is necessary to reconcile supply and demand and can contribute to an independent worker.
"What I question from the beginning is the consideration that the application is an element of intermediation of the company and from there the relationship is labor, because the intervention of apps occurs in many sectors", clarified Zimmermann.
However, for the distributors of the Association of autonomous riders APRA having a labor link would not be positive, since being autonomous allows them to "collaborate with many platforms", according to Jordi Mateu, and the conditions that are being put on the platforms that are testing labor models are worse.
"The delivery contracts they are starting to make are charging 7 euros per hour and 4 cents per kilometer. We are concerned that by making a bad law we are pigeonholed in those contracts, " said the president of this association of messengers.
The UNIR professor of Labor Law, Guillermo García, reviewed before the round table the different models adopted by European countries that have legislated on this issue. Italy has proposed a flexible model in which if there is a permanent, personal and continuous relationship it is considered an employment contract, and if the relationship is not permanent it is considered autonomous but with reinforced rights such as collective bargaining or accident insurance.
France, for its part, has turned to a third figure, that of the "self-entrepreneur" in which elements of the classic Labor relationship are used but removing exclusivity, something close to the economically dependent self-employed (TRADE), Spanish.
Be it one way or another, work on platforms must be regulated with a broad point of view that goes beyond the home delivery sector, according to ATA vice president Celia Ferrero. "It is part of a deeper debate, that of the future of work and how the economy increasingly tends to self-employment. We will have to look for ways to strengthen self-employment and find a valid dialogue for these workers. It is not something that can be regulated in three days or limited to the delivery sector", he considered.
