Haptic feedback is only relevant on Sony consoles I guess. Anywhere else and it would be a gimmik. Amazing how fast that opinion SWITCHED up.
For real though, saying either console is "not next gen" or that one "transcends" the other is hilarious. This is shaping up to be the most interesting gen we have had in a long time, and I for one am excited for it (regardless of what I am playing on).
I have a Switch and I really like its HD Rumble, it has/had potential. Sadly its so overlooked and underutilized in most of Switch games. The DualSense is getting a lot of praise from the media, influencers and reviewers. Most saying its quite revolutionary and is a huge jump from the HD rumble in the Switch in what it can do. And it being the most 'next gen' thing in the new consoles - whether you can take this is a good or bad thing is up to you.
Again this is more of something different. Like the Wii, with the Wiimote though not to that extreme. If you go past the flamboyant title, and read/watch some reviews on the PS5, using the DS provides a unique experience and thats certainly going to garner some attention. As always its best to try it out for yourself before claiming gimmick. Just like Wii and Wiimote and look at it now with VR, its everywhere.
