We’re additionally taking a look at methods to benefit from the flexible triggers to express a sense of consistent energy, or an equilibrium of forces if you will, and for possibly actions such charging, filling, and also a sense of buildup of power or energy for things.
” The haptic feedback, in contrast to the resonance feature of previous generations, permits us to utilize a much bigger array, starting from a very solid resonance that is much more powerful than in the past, down to incredibly light vibration. This way we can use gamers extremely in-depth, ‘textured’ nuances. Due to this, our approach is different– it isn’t a short-term or a continuous vibration level any longer, it permits us to thoroughly change the comments throughout the game.”
