Xbox One and Series S/X have their own Xbox Elite controller, Nintendo Switch has a Switch Pro Controller, but PlayStation (PS) doesn’t have a Pro controller of their own. Previously, there were only third-party controllers for PS consoles because Sony never released a pro version of its controllers. But that changed today.
The DualSense Edge wireless controller is Sony’s first pro controller akin to the Xbox Elite controller.
Here’s what the new pro controller can do.
You can adjust stick sensitivity and dead zones (the amount your analogue stick may travel before it is registered by a game) will help you fine-tune your aim as well as remapping or turning off particular button inputs. Each trigger also has a set of parameters that let you customise the dead zones and travel distance to your liking.
You can save your preferred control settings to individual profiles and switch between them whenever you want.
You can instantly switch between your pre-set control profiles, change the game volume and chat balance, and access the controller profile settings menu while gaming by using the designated Fn button.
You can swap the stick caps (standard, high dome, and low dome) and the back buttons (half-dome and lever) may be modified to function like any other button input.
Additionally, each individual stick module on the controller may be changed (you have to buy the replacement stick modules separately).
The USB Type-C braided cable that comes with the DualSense Edge wireless controller employs a connector housing to secure onto the controller so it won’t come loose while you’re playing.
When you are not gaming, you can charge the DualSense Edge wireless controller while it is kept in storage in the included carrying case.
We will monitor this as Sony has not yet disclosed the new controller’s pricing or release date.
