DualSense Edge Wireless Controller PS5 Announced

Sony Interactive Entertainment has recently announced the newest DualSense Edge wireless controller for PS5.

DualSense Edge Customizable Controller

The DualSense Edge is the first-ever high-performance, ultra-customizable controller developed by SIE. It is designed to give players an edge in gameplay by allowing them to customize their controls. They can craft their own unique gaming experience tailored to their playstyle.


The DualSense Edge wireless controller features several hardware and software-based customization options like:

  • Ultra-customizable controls: Allows players to remap or deactivate specific button inputs and fine-tune their aim by adjusting stick sensitivity and dead zones. Each trigger is adjustable with options to tailor travel distance and dead zones to their preference.
  • Ability to save multiple control profiles: Save customized control settings to unique profiles and swap between them on the fly.
  • On-controller user interface: The dedicated Fn button allows players to adjust their setup while staying focused on the in-game action. They can quickly swap between their pre-set control profiles, adjust game volume and chat balance, and access the controller profile settings menu to set up and test new control iterations while in game.
  • Changeable stick caps and back buttons: Players can swap three types of stick caps (standard, high dome, and low dome) help them stay comfortable in game while maintaining grip and stability. The two swappable sets of back buttons (half-dome and lever) can be configured to be any other button input, putting more essential controls.
  • Replaceable stick modules: Players can fully replace each individual stick module on the controller. The replacement stick modules will be sold separately.
  • Built-in DualSense wireless controller features: This new controller will retain the signature comfort and immersive experience of the DualSense wireless controller when playing supported games including adaptive triggers, haptic feedback, motion controls, built-in microphone, and more.

Braided USB Type-C

The DualSense Edge wireless controller will also come with a USB Type-C braided cable, which uses a connecter house to lock into the controller so it is less likely to slip out. It includes a carrying case to keep the controller inside and components together and organized in one place. It allows them to charge the controller via USB connection while it is stored in the case.

Art Director Daisuke Kurihara shares some details:

“The opportunity to create the DualSense Edge wireless controller was a dream come true for our team. We wanted to build on the legacy of iconic PlayStation controllers by creating a controller that empowers players to experiment and personalize elements based on their own unique playstyle – whether they are a competitive gamer or someone who just enjoys having more options to customize their play. The DualSense Edge wireless controller also features a number of thoughtful design touches that we hope players will enjoy, including a distinct DualSense controller-inspired black-and-white color scheme and a unique PlayStation Shapes pattern on the touch pad and trigger surfaces.

“We are thankful to the many gamers, professional esports players, and developers who helped provide feedback on the controller’s design.”

More details will be shared about the DualSense Edge wireless controller in the months ahead and that includes the launch timing.
