Sony is also launching a more expensive, customizable controller (why did the company wait so long?).
Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced on the PlayStation Blog that the DualSense Edge, available to pre-order from October 25, will be a hardcore-oriented controller with the ability to customize it to your liking. Check out what they say in the announcement post:
“The DualSense Edge wireless controller features a host of hardware and software-based personalization options, including button remapping, the ability to fine-tune stick sensitivity and triggers, opportunities to swap between multiple control profiles, and a unique on-controller user interface. It also sports the signature comfort and immersive features of the DualSense wireless controller, like haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
You can make the DualSense Edge wireless controller uniquely yours with the included three changeable sets of stick caps and two changeable sets of back buttons. Everything will come bundled in the included carrying case, and you can even charge the controller via a USB connection while it’s stored in the case to ensure you’re always ready for your next play session. Here’s a breakdown of everything included as well as a closer look at the carrying case: DualSense Edge wireless controller, USB braided cable, two Standard caps, two high dome caps, two low dome caps, two half dome back buttons, two back lever buttons, connector housing, carrying case
Starting Tuesday, October 25, 2022 (while supplies last), in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg, the DualSense Edge wireless controller and replaceable stick modules will be available for pre-order only through PlayStation Direct. The DualSense Edge wireless controller and replaceable stick modules will be available for direct.playstation.com customers in these countries starting January 26, 2023, and will be offered at other participating retailers beginning February 23, 2023.”
The price will be steep. While it will be $200 in the US, it will be €240 in Europe. Even though the dollar seems more vital than the euro, the difference is significant. Still, Sony aims to rival Microsoft in the more expensive, hardcore controllers category. The question is how much interest there will be in it.
