Sony unveiled an “extremely customizable” PS5 DualSense Edge wi-fi controller again in August, and on Tuesday revealed its $200 price ticket and Jan. 26, 2023 launch date. It’s going to come out first within the US, UK, France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.
The brand new controller and $20 replaceable stick modules might be obtainable for preorder subsequent Tuesday, Oct. 25, solely by PlayStation Direct. It’s going to be obtainable from different retailers from Feb. 23, 2023.
Gamers will be capable of remap or deactivate particular button inputs, regulate stick sensitivity, cut back journey distance of triggers and swap stick caps between normal, excessive dome and low dome relying on what you like to your grip. There are two units of swappable again buttons — half dome and lever — together with replaceable stick modules (offered individually).
You can save multiple profiles for the PS5 controller for specific games or people — like one suited for first-person shooter games and another for racing games. You’ll also be able to access the controller profile settings menu from the controller itself while you’re playing.
The controller comes with a USB Type-C braided cable with a connector housing, and a carry case from which you can charge it.
It’s PlayStation’s answer to the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller, which costs $180 (or $130 without the customizable parts).
