Prepare yourself: the DualSense Edge wireless controller is now available globally beginning today. We’re looking forward to introducing the PlayStation community to the all-new, highly customizable controller, which allows players to create a personalised gaming experience that adapts to their playstyle.
The DualSense Edge controller was designed from the ground up for PS5, with many customization options such as swappable stick caps and back buttons, L2/R2 stop sliders, button remapping, the ability to fine-tune stick sensitivity, stick dead zones, and trigger dead zones, and an on-controller user interface to seamlessly create and swap between custom profiles.
Our PlayStation team gathered insights from professional gamers and esports players when designing the controller to ensure the DualSense Edge controller is competition ready, incorporating features such as a 2.8M (9.1FT) USB braided cable and connector housing that locks the cable to the controller, and a carrying case to store the controller and its components. While the controller is in the carrying case, players can charge it via USB connection.
The DualSense Edge controller is designed to be customised from top to bottom to adapt to each player’s preferences and unique playstyle, making it ideal for competitive gamers or players who simply prefer a personalised controller experience. Let’s take a look at the custom profiles I’ve created on my own DualSense Edge controller to play my favourite games for some pointers.
As a fan of first-person shooters, my Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II setup focuses on precise aim, customised loadouts, and team communication:
When playing action games like God of War Ragnarök, I adjust my custom profile to have key moves at my disposal:
When I load FIFA 23, I focus on preparing for skill moves and quick manoeuvres:
We’re excited to see how players use the controller’s extensive features to create their own gaming experience.
