Sony have revealed the PlayStation DualSense Edge Controller. Here is everything you need know about its release date, pre-orders and its latest features.

This professional grade controller comes with customizable controls, tunable stick and trigger sensitivity, amongst a list of other high-spec features.

The controller is aimed at competitive gamers, though those who enjoy single player games could benefit from the added customizability.

The controller asks a high price, and with the PSVR 2 releasing in the same timeframe, PlayStation lovers could be seeing their PS hardware catalogue growing, whilst their wallets get a little smaller.

If you’re wondering if the DualSense Edge is compatible with PC or PS4, our friends at WePC have taken a stab at that.

Players interested in the newly released of PlayStation Tournaments, might take especial interest in this new new controller that could give them the edge (if you’ll pardon the pun) over the competition. The first set of tournament, which are live now, even offer you the chance to win one of the controllers.
