Sony has unveiled its DualSense Edge wireless controller for the PlayStation 5. The company states that the new design lets you customise the controller, allowing you to change the controls to suit your gaming style.
The DualSense Edge wireless controller gets various new features to enhance customisation capabilities. For instance, the controller’s button input can be remapped and stick sensitivity can be adjusted as well. You can then save your settings to unique profiles so that you can access them easily.
Additionally, there’s a separate Fn button which will let you change your setup on the fly. It will allow you to choose from your saved profiles, pull up the settings menu, and change the volume—all while playing the game.

The controller’s art director Daisuke Kurihara spoke about its design, “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.”
The wireless controller comes with three changeable stick caps—standard, high dome, and low dome. These will give you a comfortable grip on the controller while gaming. It also comes with two sets of interchangeable back buttons, half-dome and lever, that can be customised as per your preference.
The stick modules on the controller are now fully replaceable. The DualSense Edge wireless controller also includes a USB Type-C braided cable that locks it in place. It comes with a carrying case which can be used to hold the DualSense Edge wireless controller and related components. This makes it convenient to charge the controller via the USB cable while it’s in the case.
Sony added that the company will be revealing more details about the DualSense Edge wireless controller, such as the launch timeline and pricing, in the near future.
