PS5 DualSense Edge Battery Life Less Than Original Controller

Remember, it has a $200 price tag.

Sony Interactive Entertainment has recently released a new video showcasing the new PS5 DualSense Edge controller with high praise, but some reviewers are saying otherwise with the DualSense Edge battery life.

The new video reveals the DualSense Edge’s high-performance and ultra-customization features. It gives buyers a behind-the-scenes look at its development. The clip shows how the PS5 console’s user interface will enable deeper levels of customization of the controller.

While the customization features are really revolutionary for ANY PlayStation fan, it seems this dream controller has its flaws. It was recently discovered by media outlet The Verge in their hands-on test with the DualSense Edge that there is a downside to using this type of controller.

According to the tester, the battery life is less than the original DualSense controller. Even Sony Interactive Entertainment came out clean and confirmed it with the website that it is true.

“The DualSense Edge wireless controller’s operating time is moderately shorter than the original DualSense wireless controller because we’ve included many more features within the same form factor and ergonomic design as the original DualSense controller,” a spokesperson said.

“We wanted to strike a good balance between wireless operating time and delivering robust, high-performance features. Additionally, the longer USB braided cable is also great for competitive players who prefer playing with a wired connection to avoid wireless interference – this option preserves battery life.”

Either stay with the regular DualSense controllers with better battery life and hope for the best that it will not joystick drift or have the best customization features with the DualSense Edge but suffer shorter battery life. Your choice guys.
