A new page on the official PlayStation website has revealed what buyers of the PS5 DualSense Edge controller should expect to receive once it's out. Sony is making the purchase a one-stop shop for all things customizability on PS5 by housing the components in a carrying case and offering multiple variants of each tool.
Here's everything the package contains:
- DualSense Edge wireless controller
- USB braided cable
- 2 standard Stick Caps
- 2 High Dome Stick Caps
- 2 Low Dome Stick Caps
- 2 Half Dome Back Buttons
- 2 Lever Back Buttons
- Connector Housing
- Carrying Case
The page confirms the stick modules can be purchased separately, opening up the possibility of Sony offering further customisation options — other colours for example or pieces themed around specific games. You'll also be able to charge the controller while it's in the Carrying Case and the connector housing ensures the braided USB cable will never suddenly fall out of its socket.
If you've been to a gaming convention before and noticed how PlayStation pads are always locked to the USB charging cable — and thus the console itself — the DualSense Edge's connector housing will play a similar role. We just expect it'll be easier to actually get the pad out of the housing.
Sony hasn't announced a price or release date for the new controller yet, but in a recent Push Square poll, we asked how much you would pay for one. Anywhere from £80/$100 to £120/$150 received the most votes, but with Microsoft's Elite controller setting the bar around £150/$150, it's unlikely Sony's version will be that cheap. Furthermore, now that Sony has raised the price of the PS5, it suggests the company isn't afraid of asking for a little bit more cash for its products.
