The PlayStation's main user interface is the controller. Additionally, the PSX controller altered the rules once more, just as the gamepad that came with the original Nintendo Entertainment System represented a significant divergence from earlier controllers. It is both user-friendly and strong due to its wing-like design and plethora of strategically placed buttons.

There are 14 buttons on the typical PSX controller. Although each button can be set to carry out a unique and special operation, they all operate according to the same general idea. Each button is essentially a switch that, when pressed, completes a circuit. Two conductive material strips on the circuit board within the controller are pressed into contact with a small metal disc that is positioned beneath the button. The metal disc conducts electricity between the two strips when it is in contact with them. The controller notifies the PSX that the circuit is closed after detecting it. The CPU then initiates the appropriate response by comparing the data with the button's instructions in the game software.

Dual shock Play station 4 (PS4) controller: 

Modern Dual Shock PSX controllers come with analog joysticks in addition to the usual buttons. The way these joysticks operate is entirely different from how the aforementioned buttons function. Under the joystick, two potentiometers (variable resistors) are arranged perpendicular to one another. Each one constantly conducts current, but the quantity of current depends on the level of resistance. Depending on where the joystick is positioned, the resistance changes. The PSX can precisely determine the angle at which the joystick is being held by monitoring the output of each potentiometer and triggering the appropriate response based on that angle. Analog features like these enable incredible gameplay control in games that support them.

Dualsense Play station 5 (PS5) controller:

A built-in microphone, dynamic adaptive triggers, and immersive haptic feedback are all features of the DualSense wireless controller for PS5. You can feel a physically sensitive response to your in-game actions thanks to dual actuators, which stand in for traditional rumble motors. These dynamic vibrations can recreate the sensation of any surroundings or type of weapon's recoil in your hands. Additionally, as you engage with your in-game equipment and environments, you may fe

el various degrees of force and stress. Feel physiologically resonant with your on-screen movements, whether you're drawing back an escalating constricted bowstring or slamming on the brakes of a rushing car.
