Sony claims that the DualSense wireless game controller has been designed in such a way that the components fit into the hardware without sacrificing the overall size of the hardware. The triggers and actuators find a spot in a hotspot location after careful research by the design team. The designers worked together to create the exterior of the controller in a portable fashion. The main challenge was to make the controller feel smaller than its actual design.

The intention of the product team was to build a controller with great ergonomics.
