The DualSense controller is a selling point in itself for the PS5, and with of all the new color variants available, you might be tempted to indulge in an upgrade on your current controller. Well, you should definitely consider looking into the DualSense Edge controller, which is one of the more premium controllers around for PlayStation 5 owners. And the good news is you can save some money on it while buying yourself a brand-new PS5 game.
One of the best PS5 controllers currently available, the DualSense Edge was initially announced back in August 2022. It retains a familiar design to the standard DualSense, albeit with significant hardware changes. Designed to be one of the best PS5 accessories for competitive play in games like Modern Warfare 3 or Apex Legends, Sony details that “the first-ever high-performance, ultra-customizable” controller allows you “to create custom controls […] [and] craft your own unique gaming experience tailored to your play style.” And it can be yours with a fresh PS Plus promotion.
If you aren’t aware, there is currently a new PS Plus deal running until Friday, October 27, 2023. With up to 30% applicable for your purchases, this PS Plus Bundle and Save deal makes now the ideal time to pick up some of the best PS5 games on the PlayStation store, while also adding new hardware to your setup. To get the full extent of the discount, you’ll need to have a PS Plus membership, or you’ll only be able to access 15% off your basket. The new deal allows you to pair almost any PS5 accessory (controllers, headsets, cameras) and game together, but there are some restrictions surrounding PSVR 2 games and pre-orders.
The DualSense Edge controller retails at $199.99/£209.99 on PlayStation Direct website, which will be discounted within the deal. There is only one color variant of the DualSense Edge at present, but with the PS5 Slim Model and PS5 Slim plates on the way, we think other variations could be on the way in the future. Nevertheless, the standard white design is slick and ties into the PS5 console’s design seamlessly. Aside from using it to compete in some of the best FPS games available on PS5, you can also experience new PS5 games like Spider-Man 2 with a few customizable options such as:
- Ultra-customizable controls
- Ability to save multiple control profiles
- On-controller user interface
- Changeable stick caps and back buttons
- Replaceable stick modules
- Built-in DualSense wireless controller features
You can read The Loadout’s PS5 DualSense Edge review too, where we note that the controller’s “ease-of-use and comfortable grip, alongside a variety of great accessories and the final touches with the swappable stick modules, makes the DualSense Edge the most elite controller on the market right now.” And if you’re looking to pair with something else, check out our list of the best PS5 headsets, which includes the PULSE 3D headset that is available in the PS Plus Bundle and Save deal.
