Sony unveils an improved version of the regular DualSense controller. This time it comes with a very customizable option.

At first glance, you might assume that this customizable controller bears similarities to Microsoft’s Xbox Elite. However, the staggering difference will surprise you with its flexibility when it comes to gameplay.

According to PlayStation.Blog, the DualSense Edge wireless controller sports a “high-performance first” that will allow gamers to experience personalized controls. This offers a versatile approach for anyone who wants to make adjustments so they can fit their style of play.

The upcoming PS5 controller is a one-of-a-kind product that promotes a smooth customization experience in both software and hardware.

Hardware customization

You can swap out its back buttons with two choices on the plate: lever and half-dome.

If you’re a heavy hitter who regularly wears down the stick, the PS5 DualSense Edge can let you replace stick modules so you don’t have to worry about endless clicks. This time the game company won’t put them in the box. Instead, it will sell them separately to customers.

Besides that, you can also change the stick caps with your preferred option. You can choose low dome, high dome or standard dome.

Software Customization

For those wondering about customizing the software, you can almost tweak all the buttons and settings for a huge change. PCMag wrote that you can change the trigger travel and even change the stick sensitivity.

On top of that, it’s up to you to remap the buttons, but it also leaves the option of disabling them when the time comes.

If you are used to switching between profiles when playing a new title. Sony’s PS5 DualSense Edge won’t let you do that anymore.

Interestingly, you can save multiple profiles for different games so your custom buttons won’t reset when opening a new game. This can be done through the Fn button.

As this is a highly revamped DualSense controller, you can expect to see some quirky features including haptic feedback, built-in mic, adaptive triggers, and motion controls.

Sony will add a dedicated storage case for efficient charging. It will retain the USB-C connectivity we previously saw from the older controller.

As of this writing, the company has yet to reveal any information about its official launch date and pricing. We might hear some details for the remaining months of 2022.
