Today marks the global release of the DualSense Edge wireless controller

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:

  • Changeable stick caps and stick sensitivity: For smoother, more precise aiming, I replace my right stick cap with the High Dome stick cap and pair it with the Precise stick sensitivity preset curve.
  • L2/R2 stop sliders: For a faster reaction to enemy encounters, I usually set the stop sliders on both the L2 and R2 buttons to Short or Medium.
  • Back buttons and button mapping: I’ve found that mapping the back buttons to actions like jumping or swapping loadouts helps me keep my thumbs on the sticks during tense moments.
  • Fn buttons: When communicating with my team, I frequently use the Fn buttons to adjust the audio balance between the game and chat, allowing me to switch between callouts and listening for enemy team movements.
  • When playing action games like God of War Ragnarök, I adjust my custom profile to have key moves at my disposal:

  • Adjustable stick sensitivity: My preferred stick sensitivity setting for the left and right sticks for quick camera adjustments, movement, and aiming is the Quick preset curve. In-game, I occasionally switch to a Dynamic preset curve for sequences where I need to aim carefully while also turning quickly.
  • Back buttons and button mapping: I switch to the Half Dome back buttons because they fit my typical controller grip, allowing me to quickly dodge or recall my axe while moving around the map and keeping an eye out for enemies.
  • When I load FIFA 23, I focus on preparing for skill moves and quick manoeuvres:

  • Adjustable stick sensitivity: I configured my custom profile to use the Digital preset curve for the right stick, which makes using skill moves easier.
  • L2/R2 stop sliders and trigger dead zones: I change the trigger dead zones as well as the stop sliders to the Short setting – combining both of these changes makes it even easier for me to sprint or shield by pressing the L2 and R2 buttons simultaneously.
  • Back buttons and button mapping: I’ve assigned my two back buttons to shoot and pass, so I can perform a skill move while navigating the field.
  • We’re excited to see how players use the controller’s extensive features to create their own gaming experience.
