PS5 DuelSense Edge wireless controller scheduled to debut early next year

Sony revealed on Tuesday that the DualSense Edge, a high-end, customisable controller for the PlayStation 5, will debut on January 26, 2023. It’s also not inexpensive: $239.99/£209.99 in Europe, $199.99 in the United States.

The DualSense Edge, which was introduced during Gamescom Opening Night Live, is the PlayStation version of Microsoft’s Elite series of gamepads, which debuted in 2015 and were updated with the Elite Series 2 model in 2019. Launch pricing for the Elite Series 2 was $179.99, $30 higher than for the first Elite.

On the ventral side of the controller, the DualSense Edge contains two back buttons and interchangeable stick caps in two different heights. Players may adjust the distance that the analogue sticks on The Edge move using a slider on the controller itself. Users of the Elite Series 2 must use a unique tool to tighten or loosen their sticks.

The DualSense Edge also comes with two different types of back buttons (half dome or lever), a connection housing, a carrying case, and a USB cable (for charging; the device is still wireless).

On January 26, replaceable stick modules will also be offered individually for $19.99/€24.99/£19.99. In the US and western Europe (the UK, France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands), the DualSense Edge will be up for pre-order via direct.playstation.com. On February 23, 2023, major stores will start selling the new controller, according to Sony.
