Issue ID




[Input System] PS5 controller is not supported on desktop platforms and in Editor

Package: Input System


How to reproduce:
1. Create a new Unity project and import the Input System package
2. Connect a PS5 controller
3. Open Window > Analysis > Input Debugger
4. In the Input Debugger window, double-click on the connected gamepad to observe its Controls

Expected results: no inputs appear to be triggered unless the corresponding buttons are pressed
Actual results: dpad up and y, systemButton, and touchpadButton are constantly set to 1 even though they are not being pressed; pressing various buttons results in wrong or no inputs being registered (behavior varies depending on versions of Editor and Input System)

Reproducible with: 2019.4.25f1, 2020.3.7f1, 2021.1.6f1, 2021.2.0a16 (Input System 1.0.2, 1.1.0-preview.3)
Could not test with: 2018.4.34f1 as it requires outdated versions of Input System

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 1.1.2):

    PS5 DualSense gamepad support is in the works and will be available in the next package release

    I found and have just started using using a Unity asset that integrates with DualSense controllers. It does not seem to interface fully with the Unity input system, but the asset does let you detect any type of button press including the touch pad and it also lets you turn things on like rumble, lights, haptic feedback, and the trigger tension.

    It is called "Controller Interface For DualSense".

    Would be great if you could at least merge the provided code to have a partial support for PS5

    I have created a layout here, for the PS5 dualsense, it only supports input so things like rumble don't work but at least it stops the random behavior.

    A reasoning of why getting a ps5 controller to work would be nice instead of a general response of

    "Postponed means that the issue was either a feature request or something that requires major refactoring on our side. Since that makes the issue not actionable in the close future we choose to close it as Postponed and add it on our internal roadmaps and technical debt pages instead."

    Would be nice.
