Sony has just announced New DualSense Edge Wireless Controller. The “High Performance” controller is fully customizable, like the Xbox Elite controller. Sony seems to have the best features out of the Scuf and Elite controllers, with removable analog thumb sticks, rear buttons, changeable stick covers, and multiple control profiles.
The DualSense Edge allows owners to change stick caps for three types: standard, high dome and low dome. There are also two interchangeable back buttons (half-dome or lever) that can be assigned to any other buttons, like typical paddles. You can even exchange stick modules, which is a nice feature on the Xbox Elite. It will be sold separately.
Sony has also added adjustable hair locks at the back. These locks are ideal for players who want to physically lock their triggers to half-pull and adjust travel distance. You can also reset or deactivate button inputs and adjust stick sensitivity and dead zones.
Much like other customizable consoles, you can save multiple controller profiles, which is ideal when you switch games regularly. Sony has also added an interface on the console with a dedicated function button that lets you quickly switch between profiles, adjust volume and chat balance, and access profile settings to tweak the console during a game.
You’ll even get a braided USB-C cable with the DualSense Edge, which includes a connector cover that snaps into the controller. There’s also a carrying case, like the Xbox Elite, that keeps all the components in one place and can charge the console via USB when it’s stored.
Sony only teased the DualSense Edge console during the opening of Gamescom Night Live, and there’s no confirmed release date or price yet. DualSense Edge not launching soon. “In the coming months, we look forward to sharing more details about the DualSense Edge wireless controller, including launch timing, and we can’t wait to see how the PS5 community unlocks the full potential of console customization options,” says Hideaki Nishino, Senior Vice President of PlayStation Experience. .
