There will be a wireless DualSense Edge controller for the PS5. Sony showcased their new premium PlayStation 5 controller on Tuesday at Gamescom Opening Night Live.
The controller initially has a similar appearance to the conventional PS5 DualSense, but it also has additional features to raise the bar. The brand-new DualSense Edge wireless controller is “ultra-customizable,” allowing you to switch out thumbstick caps and customize control layouts.
In essence, the DualSense Edge is Sony’s (very late) response to Xbox’s Elite controller line. The DualSense Edge wireless controller doesn’t have a launch window right now.
The DualSense Edge wireless controller will include a number of new functions, according to a blog post on the PlayStation website. Since gamers previously had to rely on third parties like Scuf Gaming for comparable functionality, this would mark the first attempt by Sony to create customizable controllers.
For a customized gaming experience, the new PS5 controller offers a variety of hardware and software options.
Ultra-customizable controls for DualSense Edge
You can remap or deactivate particular button inputs that are in the way with the new DualSense Edge wireless controller. Dead zones, or how far your analog stick must move before it is detected by the game, can also be changed.
In order to manually shorten the time required for rapid inputs, PS5 players can also fiddle with the trip distance. In competitive FPS games, shorter travel distances equate to faster input.
Control profiles for DualSense Edge
After locating their ideal control settings, PS5 users can save them to distinct profiles and switch them at any time. Imagine that you have decreased camera sensitivity on Profile 1 for improved aim in first-person shooter games.
Therefore, you may establish these parameters in advance and switch through the program rather than having to manually change them when moving to a narrative game like God of War.
You may switch between profiles, as well as access volume controls and chat balance, by tapping the DualSense Edge’s Fn (function) button. This will bring up a menu.
With DualSense Edge, you can swap out the stick caps and back buttons.
Sony now offers interchangeable stick caps and back buttons, much to the Xbox Elite controller. You receive three different types of caps in the package: regular, high dome, and low dome. These can be quickly changed to fit your palm size and finger alignment, allowing you to be comfortable in-game while retaining a firm grip.
Additionally, a brand-new feature of the DualSense Edge is two sets of back buttons that can be swapped out and changed to function as any other button input. Though it didn’t have a formal name, some referred to it as the “DualSense Pro” in earlier stories that mentioned Sony’s approach.
The stick modules can also be changed, according to PlayStation, but extra ones will be priced separately.
The DualSense Edge wireless controller still has all the features of the normal model, including haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, a built-in microphone, motion controls, and more. Additionally, the bundle will come with a carrying case and a USB Type-C braided cable.
There is currently no release date or pricing range for the DualSense Edge wireless controller for the PS5. In the next months, further details will be disclosed regarding the same. Priced at Rs. 6,490 in India, the regular PS5 DualSense controller.
