Do Critics Think PS5’s Dualsense Edge Is Worth $200?
The DualSense Edge is a new high-tier controller for the PlayStation 5 that critics and reviewers have praised for its haptics, cool design, and responsiveness — though the battery life has been a consistent source of criticism. Despite its benefits, the $200 price tag has many gamers wondering if the controller is worth the steep price.
Writing for IGN, Matthew Adler said that the DualSense Edge was a very good controller that gamers will be mostly satisfied with. “The $200 price tag for the DualSense Edge is a hefty one for most casual players,” Adler said. “That being said, there's a ton of fantastic tech packed into a controller that's virtually the same size and shape you're already used to.”
Andy Robinson of VGC was adamant in expressing that it was the best controller available for any professional or highly competitive gamer on the PlayStation 5. Sports Illustrated’s Kirk McKeand said, “If you spend a lot of time gaming on your PS5, this is the only controller you'll ever need. However, casual players are better off spending the $199 on a few games.”
