Sony launched a new DualSense Edge controller for the PlayStation 5 controller. This is a customizable version of a PlayStation controller yet.
The controller has two new buttons on the back, two Function buttons on the bottom, updated joysticks and trigger buttons, and a reinforced USB design.
There are back buttons (LB and RB) for remapping controls. Users can swap buttons between the lever and half-dome designs.
The DualSense Edge has changeable caps, which can be switched between standard, high dome, and low dome. The joystick parts are replaceable, so if you get the controllers damaged, you can remove them and replace them without replacing the entire controller.
Users can adjust the stick sensitivity and the deadzone as well. Users can create controller profiles with specific presets and swap between them, as well as access other functions like game volume, controller profile, and chat balance settings menu through the two Function buttons attached to the joysticks.
Users can adjust trigger buttons on the top and the travel and the dead zones using the switches on the back. Users can adjust the trigger level for each game, you could have long travel for a racing game and short travel for a shooter.
The company uses the USB-C connector with a locking mechanism, so users can’t pop out accidentally.
The design is very futuristic, with a black touchpad with the PlayStation icons and a glossy black finish around the sticks. There is a black background for the front button as well.
The DualSense Edge still has other similar features compared with DualSense, including haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, a built-in microphone, motion controls, and more.
The DualSense Edge comes with a set of stick caps, back button sets, a modified USB-C cable with the locking mechanism, and braiding. Sony offers a carrying case in a package, so users can charge the controller while it is inside using USB.
Unfortunately, Sony hasn’t confirmed the price and release date.
