DualSense Edge Controller Revealed at Gamescom Opening Night Live – IGN

Sony has announced the DualSense Edge, a new premium-grade wireless controller.

Revealed for the first time at Opening Night Live, the DualSense Edge is a high-end controller that appears to be Sony’s answer to Xbox’s Elite controller range.

A new PS Blog entry has detailed the highly customisable controller, which allows you set bespoke control mappings and even deactivate specific buttons.

Visually, the controller is very much alligned with the normal DualSense, but with a few extra elements to bring it up to premium standards. As with the Xbox controller, you can expect swappable thumb stick caps and adjustable dead zones.

While the controller was shown in shadow in the trailer, we can see paddle switches/back bottons on the rear (which can be in dome or level-style configurations), as well as some kind of new surface beneath the analogue sticks.

A switch on the rear shoulder is shown with three settings, which likely adjust the travel distance of the triggers, a new feature for the controller.
