Nacon Revolution 5 Pro is a $200 PS5 controller that’s been hamstrung by Sony

The Revolution 5 Pro is a wonderfully made controller that's comfortable to hold and has tremendous build quality. However, Sony's insistence on keeping many of the DualSense's features proprietary means that Nacon's controller is missing a lot of functionality. As such, it's an outstanding PC controller, but an average PS5 one.

  • Top-notch build quality and very comfortable
  • Hall effect sticks mean no drift
  • Great battery life
  • PC mode makes it a superb XInput controller
  • No adaptive triggers
  • No haptic feedback
  • No wireless without a dongle
  • Can't turn the console on with it
