Now you’re playing with power
During today’s Gamescom Opening Night Live presentation, Sony revealed that it was working on a customizable version of its DualSense controller for the PS5 platform, the DualSense Edge.
Much like previous “Pro” controllers, the DualSense Edge will feature interchangeable components such as thumbsticks and Haptic Feedback triggers, as well as other internal components in order to offer PS5 players their own desired levels of comfort and precision when playing their chosen games.
Rumors of an “Elite” or “Pro” edition of the DualSense controller have been floating around the internet in recent weeks, so it’s good to finally receive the official reveal. A date and price were not announced.
On the PlayStation Blog, Sony shed more light on the DualSense Edge, including adjustable trigger travel distance and dead zones, swappable stick caps and back buttons, replaceable stick modules (sold separately), and a new Fn button for changing between pre-set control profiles. The DualSense Edge comes with a USB Type-C braided cable, and the controller can be charged while it’s being stored in its carrying case.
Art director Daisuke Kurihara thanked the “many gamers, professional esports players, and developers who helped provide feedback on the controller’s design.”
Sony said more information will be shared “in the months ahead.”
