PS5 DualSense Edge controller launches in January, but it’ll cost you $200

Sony’s PlayStation 5 DualSense Edge wireless controller will launch globally on January 26, 2023, through select retailers including the PlayStation website. In a blog post, Sony confirmed the device will cost $200 in the U.S. and pre-orders will begin on October 25. Sony also noted that the replaceable stick modules will be available for $20 on the same day.

The PS5 DualSense Edge is a highly customizable controller, giving players the ability to swap out the stick caps, stick modules, and back paddles, along with plenty of button mapping options. It’s essentially Sony’s answer to the Xbox Elite Series 2. It offers adjustable trigger stops and dead zones, and lets players fine-tune the stick sensitivity, which is particularly useful in games that require fast reflexes. The controller closely mirrors the standard white PS5 DualSense design, but with plenty of additional bells and whistles.

Alongside the controller’s release date, Sony also released a new trailer showcasing the device’s features.

  • DualSense Edge wireless controller
  • USB braided cable
  • 2 Standard caps
  • 2 High dome caps
  • 2 Low dome caps
  • 2 Half dome back buttons
  • 2 Lever back buttons
  • Connector housing

The DualSense Edge will be available at various retailers, but Sony also announced that you can purchase the device directly from the PlayStation website in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg (while supplies last).

The aforementioned stick module replacements will launch on January 26, 2023, through the PlayStation site, and at other retailers on February 23, 2023.

I can’t believe I’m recommending Forspoken on PS5 over PC
Frey using magic in Forspoken.

I'll almost always recommend a PC release over a console release. You have access to more graphics options, more opportunities to optimize your performance, and a community-driven support system for modifying or repairing your games. That's especially true as the current generation of consoles begin to show their age.

But there is still an unsung advantage of playing games on console over a PC, and Square Enix's Forspoken brings that advantage the PS5 has over PC into the spotlight.
