The DualSense Edge feels and appears almost equivalent to the DualSense controller. DualSense Edge lead product supervisor Tomomasa Mizuno assured me that this was an intentional determination in order to not alienate gamers who’ve already spent a whole lot of hours with the usual DualSense. If you have held a PlayStation 5 controller earlier than, then you realize what the Edge will really feel like in your arms. The greatest adjustments to the ergonomics are the brand new, rubbery grips on the again of the controller, the 2 operate buttons, the set off stops, and the customizable paddle buttons within the again.

The most helpful additions to the DualSense Edge are the 2 operate buttons situated slightly below the analog sticks. Holding one down brings up a menu that means that you can rapidly change controllers profiles, modify headset quantity, and pop right into a menu to tweak your controller settings. The operate buttons really feel like a pure extension of the DualSense that makes it simpler to entry key options you are more likely to want in a gaming session. Their location makes them laborious to misclick throughout heated moments, but they’re straightforward to entry mid-game.

Like the Elite, the controller, together with the charging cable, swappable stick caps, again buttons, and a twine lock are all packaged in a white hardshell carrying case with a gap within the again for simple charging. Overall, the DualSense Edge looks like a pleasant choice for PlayStation homeowners that may have been Xbox’s choices with pro-controller envy. For $200, you will get a controller that has a well-known type issue, improved ergonomics, some new function choices, and a very good stage of customizability.

  1. all this to get rid of stick drift, which could be solved if instead of potentiometer they used the hall effect magnet sticks like in the ps3 and before controllers

  2. I think I'll make good use of it in GT7. It's better with a wheel but sometimes it's nice to just chill in a recliner and play, and I'm sure it'll be a lot nicer with this new controller. My trigger endpoints seem to be somewhere at about 10 to 15% on both, in both directions in GT7 making braking and throttle a lot harder than it should be. Sticks are sticky too. Will be really nice to have the extra buttons and all the fine tuning adjustments. Seems expensive but it looks pretty nice. Everything is expensive these days I guess.

  3. I just preordered mine today. Definitely a little pricey but I play FPS games and only use two paddles so this controller is perfect. I also really like that you have three options in adjusting your triggers.
