In January, Sony will release its new DualSense Edge Wireless Controller, which will be sold for $199.99. The “high performance” controller can be fully customized, just like Microsoft’s Xbox Elite controllers, and it features detachable analog thumbsticks, back buttons, replaceable stick caps, and several control profiles. The latest trailer released by PlayStation today highlights several capabilities included in this controller.
The DualSense Edge Now Comes With Interchangeable Accessories
Stick caps come in three varieties: regular, high dome, and low dome, and may be swapped out by users of the DualSense Edge. Similarly to paddles on other controllers, two swappable back buttons (half-dome or lever) may be assigned to any other buttons. The stick modules, which will be sold separately, may even be changed.
You can make the DualSense Edge wireless controller uniquely yours by remapping or deactivating specific button inputs and fine-tuning your aim by adjusting stick sensitivity and dead zones (the distance your analog stick moves before it’s recognized in a game). In addition, each trigger is adjustable with options to tailor travel distance and dead zones to your preference. For example, you can manually reduce travel distance of the triggers for faster inputs in competitive FPS games or reduce the dead zone for precise throttle control in racing games.”
The back of the DualSense Edge additionally has adjustable trigger hair locks. Players who wish to physically lock their triggers at a half-pull and modify the travel distance in shooters will find these to be excellent. Additionally, you may adjust stick sensitivity and dead zones and remap or disable button inputs.
On October 25, pre-orders for the DualSense Edge and interchangeable stick modules will be on sale in the US, UK, France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg. Pre-orders can only be made at direct.playstation.com, and Sony cautions that supplies are limited, so don’t be shocked if they sell out soon. The controller will then go on sale for $199.99 around the globe on January 26. The interchangeable stick modules will also be available on January 26 for $19.99.
