The DualSense Edge will begin shipping preorders on January 26, 2023, and is set to feature a number of improvements over the regular DualSense controller that shipped with the PlayStation 5. According to software update version 22.02-06.50.00 for the PlayStation 5, released on January 12, 2023, Sony is adding support for the DualSense Edge to prepare consoles for the imminent release of the upgraded controller.
You can think of the DualSense Edge as a “pro” PS5 controller. For starters, the DualSense Edge lets users customize their gaming experience with swappable back button surfaces and tops for the thumbsticks, as well as button remapping and adjustable trigger throw. The DualSense Edge controller also features a locking USB Type-C connector, which makes it much more user-friendly for longer gaming sessions.
Further customization comes in the form of custom profiles, which save your remapped keys, stick sensitivity, and vibration settings, allowing you to dial in your settings and preferences for each game genre, and switch between each of them on the fly.
The DualSense Edge controller also features a number of adjustments to the materials and ergonomics to make it more comfortable for longer gaming sessions — and to give you a better sense of control. The new controller will be available for $199.99 on January 26, 2023.
