PlayStation has announced the new DualSense Edge wireless controller. While the controller does look very similar to a regular DualSense, the PlayStation says that this controller is ultra-customisable. Users can swap out thumbstick caps and set control mappings to suit their liking.
As for the box content, the DualSense Edge wireless controller comes with a USB Type-C braided cable, which uses a connector housing to lock into the controller. A carrying case is also included which would help keep the controller and components organized and even charge the controller via a USB connection.
A blog post released by PlayStation reads, “Today, we are thrilled to unveil the DualSense Edge wireless controller for PlayStation 5, the first-ever high-performance, ultra-customizable controller developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. Designed to give you an edge in gameplay by allowing you to create custom controls, the DualSense Edge wireless controller invites you to craft your own unique gaming experience tailored to your playstyle.”
The DualSense Edge wireless controller is a very customizable controller. Users can remap or deactivate specific button inputs and fine-tune their aim by adjusting stick sensitivity and dead zones. Each and every trigger is also adjustable with options to tailor travel distance and dead zones.
Multiple profiles can also be created which would allow swap in between different games. There is a dedicated button that allows adjusting game volume and chats balance, and access to the controller profile settings menu to set up and test new control iterations while in-game.
There are a total of three swappable stick caps, that would help in maintaining the grip and stability. Along with this, the DualSense Edge controller even comes with replaceable stick modules, so one fully replace each individual stick module on the controller.
