Sony initially revealed its answer to Microsoft’s Elite controller at Gamescom Opening Night Live, much to everyone’s surprise. It is in the form of a stylish piece called DualSense Edge controller, which is a very modular piece of hardware. Now a lot of questions have been answered about the stylish controller.
Sony has cleared the fog surrounding the high-end controller with a new announcement and a short trailer, answering commonly-asked queries, including its price, release date, a list of modular accessories, and much more. The premium controller is chock-full of exciting features that make it wholly customizable.
- The upcoming PlayStation DualSense Edge will drain $199.99 USD out of your pockets.
- The controller is full of customizable features that can be used per users’ needs.
- Through the PlayStation Direct website, pre-orders will commence on Tuesday, October 25, 2022, in many countries and regions.
- The replacement stick modules can be purchased separately for the recommended retail price of $19.99.
In an announcement by PlayStation Blog, Sony has revealed a new trailer that tackles most of the expected features that arrive with the DualSense Edge controller. Alongside the trailer, we get a list of features and the price for the slick piece of hardware.
DualSense Edge amalgamates a “host of hardware and software-based personalization options” to make it match users’ needs. The vast array of personalization options includes “button remapping, the ability to fine-tune stick sensitivity and triggers, options to swap between multiple control profiles, and a unique on-controller user interface.”
It would not be a DualSense controller without incorporating “haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.” It can be recharged in the carrying case through a USB connection to make sure it never runs out during game sessions. The list of all the accessories is given below:
- DualSense Edge wireless controller
- USB braided cable
- 2 Standard caps
- 2 High dome caps
- 2 Low dome caps
- 2 Half dome back buttons
- 2 Lever back buttons
- Connector housing
- Carrying case
The DualSense Edge can be bought for $199.99, which is a little more than the Xbox Elite controllers. The replaceable stick modules are also available for separate purchase according to users’ needs, going for a recommended retail price of $19.99.
The elegant controller is slating closer to its eventual release. It is coming out globally on January 26, and the pre-orders commence at the end of October.
Pre-orders begin on Tuesday, October 25, 2022, in the listed regions: US, UK, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg through the PlayStation Direct website.
The controllers are an integral part of defining console gaming and arrive in various colors and flavors. While there are seemingly endless possibilities regarding the unofficial controllers made by the community, the community is always excited to see the future of the official variants.
The PlayStation and Xbox consoles have featured some mystifying controllers in the past, from gorgeous design patterns to non-orthodox layouts. However, the competition is more fierce than ever before, and the disparity between the competitors will only get thinner.
The new DualSense Edge controller might be perfect for the huge variety of games arriving next year.
