Dual Sense Edge is aimed at discerning Playstation owners
Sony has unveiled a brand new controller for the PlayStation 5 that has the potential to be impressive to experienced gamers. Dual Sense Edge features an increased number of controls and functionalities, in addition to user-replaceable parts.
It has been rumoured for a considerable amount of time that a new controller will soon be arriving. Die-hard fans have been anxiously awaiting Sony’s reaction to the Elite Controller that Microsoft has released for their rival Xbox console. Now that we have it in our hands, the Dual Sense Edge was shown off to the public during Opening Night Live.
It does not try to hide its origins, and its design is rather comparable to that of the conventional Dual Sense device. However, at the bottom there are extra levers that may be used to adjust the functionality of the square, triangle, circle, or cross, depending on which shape you are using. Because, instead of tapping the symbols at the top of the gamepad, you will just use another finger, which up until now has only been used to support the controller, you will be able to respond to circumstances in the game much more quickly with the new gamepad.
In contrast to the traditional DualSense concept, the entirety of the analogue module will be very simple to swap out. You do not need to be concerned about drifting or other conditions of a similar kind, even if you steam for many hours every day. Additionally, the caps that sit atop the analogue sticks will be detachable and removable, with three distinct varieties included in the base box. As a result of this, you will be able to customise their height to correspond as closely as possible to your own preferences while you are playing. At the very bottom, there will also be a selection of levers in a variety of sizes to choose from.
In addition, new to this version are the sliders, which allow the trigger path to be shortened and, as a result, faster reflexes may be achieved. Either new functionalities will be able to be mapped to the existing buttons, or the existing buttons can be turned off entirely. Having the option to define dead zones at the levers is another feature that can come in helpful. At the same time, the configurations will be maintained in several profiles; thus, it will be possible to swap between them in a single game in a very straightforward manner.
Regrettably, Sony has not yet provided any information on the cost or availability of the product. Only in the future months are we likely to obtain further information on the anticipated Dual Sense Edge novelty.
