PlayStation has pointed at higher performance functionality being the cause behind this issue, given that they’ve implemented them in a similar design to the DualSense’s.

PlayStation is readying up for its new “Pro” style controller for PS5, the DualSense Edge. This new device includes amongst its features the ability to exchange sticks and buttons for other shapes and textures, as well as allowing the user to customize their play experience according to genre and personal preference. However, something has caught the attention of many who were already interested in it: its battery life is shorter than the regular DualSense, something that Sony itself confirmed.

PlayStation shared a statement with The Verge in which they confirm that the battery life is “moderately shorter” in this new design. According to their own words, this is caused mainly by the additional features they’ve added to the device.

Why is the battery life shorter in the DualSense Edge?

“The DualSense Edge wireless controller’s operating time is moderately shorter than the original DualSense wireless controller because we’ve included many more features within the same form factor and ergonomic design as the original DualSense controller,” said Sony. “We wanted to strike a good balance between wireless operating time and delivering robust, high-performance features.”

The console maker does mention that the bundle comes with an extra long USB cable, which they say is “great for competitive players who prefer playing with a wired connection to avoid wireless interference – this option preserves battery life.”

The DualSense Edge controller will be available starting from January 26, 2023 for $199.99 USD MSRP. First impressions of the device by various media outlets have left it clear that this is actually a high quality product with interesting features for a certain profile of player, specifically those involved in competitive gameplay. It’s capable of storing up to 3 different profiles in the controller itself, although you can have many more stored in your console to swap them as much as you like.
