Sony is announcing a new version of its controller with more customization options and a focus on performance. The new model was presented during Gamescom 2022 under the name of DualSense Edge.
Among the improvements of this new control, we have new adjustments for the adaptive triggers, allowing the user to configure them in 3 levels of depth. The analog sticks can still be removed and swapped with ease, allowing you to replace them as needed.
Customization doesn’t stop there. It is still possible to adjust the sensitivity of the buttons so that they adapt to you, making it easier to use during online games, where a quick response makes all the difference.
There are also two programmable rear buttons to perform the same actions as other buttons on the controller or that can still be programmed depending on the title currently playing. There’s even a dedicated button to switch the DualSense Edge’s working mode, adjust the sound and chat volume, and other settings.
In addition to the renewed controller, the DualSense Edge features a reinforced USB-C cable for charging and a base that locks the controller’s buttons when in use. The kit includes a box to store the controller and charging cable, taking it in style wherever you go.
“The opportunity to create the DualSense Edge wireless controller was a dream come true for our team. We wanted to build on the legacy of iconic PlayStation controllers by creating a controller that empowers players to experiment and personalize elements based on their own unique playstyle – whether they are a competitive gamer or someone who just enjoys having more options to customize their play. The DualSense Edge wireless controller also features a number of thoughtful design touches that we hope players will enjoy, including a distinct DualSense controller-inspired black-and-white color scheme and a unique PlayStation Shapes pattern on the touch pad and trigger surfaces. We are thankful to the many gamers, professional esports players, and developers who helped provide feedback on the controller’s design.”
