We will remind you that in August during the opening of the Gamescom gaming exhibition Sony announced a new controller for PlayStation 5 – DualSense Edge. Its main difference should be the ability to adjust its ergonomics “to your liking” — reassign buttons, adjust the joints and triggers, choose one of the three options for the upper parts of the joints, etc.
At the time of the announcement, the company did not reveal the price or the expected availability of the new controller, promising to do so “a little later”. And finally the time has come: Sony announced that the DualSense Edge will go on sale on January 26, 2023.
Pre-orders for the controller itself and replacement modules for the joints will begin to be accepted in a week, from October 25. But the price, to be honest, is a bit staggering: depending on the region, the DualSense Edge will cost $200/€240/£210/¥30,000 – that’s just a little less than half the price of the PlayStation 5 itself.
For this money, the buyer will receive, in addition to the controller itself, a carrying case, a USB cable, two additional pairs of different upper parts of the joints and two pairs of rear buttons. You will have to pay an additional $20/€25/£20 for the dock modules.
