Sony has announced that the pro version of its PS5 controller will arrive in February next year. The DualSense Edge Wireless Controller is set to launch on 23 February. The company claims that this launch date is a “global” one but I suggest you don’t mark down that date just yet for a local launch.
Those of you lucky enough to live in a region where the PlayStation Direct Store is available will be able to grab your DualSense Edge controller starting on 26 January. However, this is subject to a pre-order which you’ll be able to start doing on 25 October this year.
Sony says the controller will retail at $199. You’ll also be able to purchase the replaceable twin-stick modules for $19.99 a set. At the moment we don’t have a South African price tag for the controller but it will likely cost you around R4-R5k.
The DualSense Edge wireless controller features a host of hardware and software-based personalization options, including button remapping, the ability to fine-tune stick sensitivity and triggers, options to swap between multiple control profiles, and a unique on-controller user interface. It also sports the signature comfort and immersive features of the DualSense wireless controller, like haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
When buying the controller, it comes in a fancy hardshell case with some added accessories and additional items to enhance your DualSense Edge experience. These are mostly cap replacements, cables and back buttons. Using these items you’ll be able to swap around certain parts of the controller to suit your play style. I must say that the carry case looks cool!

Those of you who have been waiting for a pro controller for the PS5 should keep an eye out for this DualSense Edge controller. It is one of the only devices on the market that offer extra paddles and buttons to make use of. You either need this or have to splurge on a Scuff Controller.
