DualSense Edge Preview: Is PS5’s Expensive Pro Controller Worth It?

PLAYSTATION shocked fans when it was revealed that the PS5 Pro controller, dubbed the DualSense Edge, would cost a whopping £209.99 ($199.99).

Now we had the opportunity to get hold of one. We physically touched it, swapped the parts and played with it so we can give you an idea of ​​the steep price tag.

Heavier and more stable than the regular DualSense, it looks similar to your standard controller.

However, Sony tells us it’ll last a lot longer, helped in part by analog spare sticks you can snap in and out alongside other standalone components.

It feels complex yet intuitive. Swapping components in and out is like playing with Lego, giving you the right setup for every game you play.

The firmware will drop with the release of the new controller, introducing an app for your console that will allow you to customize your experience and learn about the features.

The controller itself can store up to three profiles, so you don’t have to go to the menu every time a new person plays.

The dead zones of the trigger can be set individually depending on the strength of the index finger, the same applies to the analog sticks.

Everything is remappable too, a big step up for accessibility, and like the regular controllers, haptics and adaptive triggers can also be reduced or disabled.

The analog stick caps can be swapped out if you dig a little longer. They are concave, allowing your thumbs to dip inward for a better grip.

It also comes with a white carrying case that allows you to charge your controller without removing it.

Overall, it is these quality of life features that distinguish the DualSense Edge as a luxury controller.

There’s also an optional braided cable that comes with a mechanical lock to prevent it from slipping out. The controller is wireless, of course, but it’s a nice option.

There are four additional keys in two different shapes on the back, which are recommended for longer or repetitive inputs.

These are easy to find as a handle on the back guides you into position.

The length of the triggers can also be adjusted. For games that require fast reactions, like shooters, you can use a shorter one, and for precision that is required in racing games, a longer one is better.

Despite all the luxe changes, accessibility options, and quality of life improvements, it’s still hard to change your mind about this remarkable award.

Those who have the cash to spare and want to get more out of their PS5 games will likely still be willing to buy one.
