DualSense Edge

The time has come once again: Sony has just released the latest firmware update for PS5. Fire up your console and you'll find it's ready to download and install (you'll also need to sign in after agreeing to the updated terms of service). At just over 1GB in size, it's not going to take you too long to sort out.

This time, the new system software — version 22.02-06.50.00, if you're wondering — has not one but two patch notes. Here they are:

  • The DualSense Edge wireless controller is now supported.
  • This system software update improves system performance.

So, it's pretty much business as usual for firmware updates, only this one also prepares your console for the arrival of the DualSense Edge. To recap, this is a premium PS5 controller arriving on the 26th January, offering greater flexibility with customisable thumb sticks, triggers, control profiles, and back-facing buttons. As long as you update your PS5 to this new firmware, the Edge controller will be good to go.
