DualSense PS5 PlayStation 5 1

DualSense Edge, the official pro-level pad from PlayStation, has become one of the top trending videos on YouTube – attracting almost one million views in less than 24 hours. The controller, which was rumoured earlier in the year before being announced during Gamescom Opening Night Live, was easily the biggest announcement of the livestream in terms of impact.

Only the reveal of Lightfall, the new expansion for Destiny 2, is trending above the DualSense Edge in terms of video game trailers – an impressive 24-hours for Sony, considering it now owns the first-person shooter’s developer, Bungie. The platform holder will be hoping this surge in interest translates to sales, as there’s big money to be made here.

While there has been demand for a pro PlayStation controller for some time, the Japanese giant has generally allowed third-party manufacturers like Nacon to occupy that field. This is the first time it’s brought the product in-house, creating a peripheral with interchangeable analogue stick modules and a completely remappable interface.
