Sony announced a new modular controller for the PlayStation 5 and PC titled the ‘DualSense Edge.’ The controller was announced as part of the opening night event for Gamescom 2022, which takes place from Wed, Aug 24, 2022 – Sun, Aug 28, 2022, in Cologne, Germany. The controller was unveiled in a dedicated trailer on the main stage. The DualSense Edge is poised as Sony’s answer to Microsoft’s ‘Elite’ Xbox Series controllers, which feature replaceable joysticks, swappable buttons, and more.
The DualSense Edge offers the ability to customize the controls, allowing players to remap the button keys, reduce the travel distance on the triggers, increase the sensitivity for the joysticks, map additional trigger buttons to different functions, and more. Additionally, PlayStation 5 will feature a dedicated application for the controller, meaning customizing the DualSense Edge will be incredibly intuitive, even for novice users.
