The PS5’s DualSense Edge wireless controllers are available for pre-order in India. The “ultra-customizable” PlayStation gamepads are gearing up for a worldwide launch on January 26, 2023, arriving in India on the same day. Pre-orders are now live on Amazon India, e2z Store, GamesTheShop and Sony Center for Rs. 18,990. It seems that Sony isn’t offering regional pricing for its latest product as it costs $199.99 (about Rs. 16,300) in the US. International pre-orders surged on October 25, nearly a month before India got its chance.
The PS5 DualSense Edge is essentially Sony’s (very late) answer to Xbox’s elite line of controllers. This is the company’s first time trying out customizable controllers, as previously players had to rely on third-party storefronts like scuf gaming for similar functions. And while these have established their capabilities on the hardware front, PlayStation is upping the ante with software options to create a personalized gaming experience. Key features include button remapping, interchangeable stick caps, and unique profile settings that can be toggled depending on the game.
Following the pre-order period, Sony has announced that the DualSense Edge controllers will be available at participating retailers starting February 23, 2023. Keep in mind that this date has been set taking into account the international customer base and Indian sales dates may vary. PlayStation in October Approved an interchangeable stick module that costs $19.99 (about Rs. 1,700) and is available for pre-order, although it’s nowhere to be found in the aforementioned Indian digital storefronts.
The PS5’s DualSense Edge controller comes in a white carrying case that includes a port for USB-C charging. Then there are three pairs of interchangeable thumbstick caps and two pairs of back buttons – the latter offering an added benefit as they can be configured for additional inputs. Similar to the side buttons on a gaming mouse. Analog stick caps are divided into standard, high dome and low dome categories and can be easily swapped out based on finger orientation.
