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.

Here's a comprehensive look at how you can customize your PS5 homescreen and whether you can change its background.

Key art for Starfield

Other reports at the time claimed that Rare's Sea of Thieves could also be bound for PlayStation and Switch. That rising anger came to a head this weekend when XboxEra reported that Xbox is planning to launch its biggest exclusive, Starfield, on PS5.
