Sony has it Just announced A new DualSense Edge wireless controller. The “High Performance” controller is fully customizable, just like the Xbox Elite controller. Sony appears to have the best features from the Scuf and Elite controllers, with removable analog thumbsticks, rear buttons, interchangeable stick caps, and multiple control profiles.
The DualSense Edge allows owners to switch between three types of stick caps: standard, high dome and low dome. There are two interchangeable back buttons (half-dome or lever) that can be mapped to any other buttons just like regular paddles. You can even replace the stick modules, which is a great advantage over the Xbox Elite. These will be sold separately.
Sony has also added adjustable trigger hair locks at the back. These locks are ideal for players who prefer to physically lock their triggers. You can remap or disable button inputs and change the stick’s sensitivity and dead zones.
As with other customizable controllers, you can save multiple control profiles, which is great when you’re constantly changing games. Sony has added an on-controller interface with a dedicated function button that lets you quickly switch between profiles, adjust sound and chat balance, and access profile settings to change the controller during gameplay.
You get a USB-C cable bundled with the DualSense Edge, which includes a connector housing that locks onto the controller. There’s also a carrying case like the Xbox Elite, which keeps all the components in one place and lets you charge the controller via USB while storing it.
Sony only teased the DualSense Edge controller during Gamescom Opening Night Live, and there’s no confirmed release date or price yet. DualSense Edge didn’t start soon enough. “In the coming months, we look forward to sharing more details about the DualSense Edge Wireless Controller, including release timing, and can’t wait to see how the PS5 community unlocks the full potential of the controller’s customization options,” said Hideki Nishino, Senior Vice President of PlayStation Platform Experience.
