When Sony launches the DualSense Edge PS5 Controller, it will be selling for $199.99. Meanwhile, the standard ones go for $74.99. That is about $120 more money to pay in order to get the new Controller. In fact the price for a single DualSense Edge can buy two of the standard ones with some balance. This simply means, you are rather paying more to downgrade in terms of battery life.

Sony Has Responded To The Battery Life Concerns Of The DualSense Edge PS5 Controller

In response to this, Sony said that the shorter battery life does not make the battery of the DualSense Edge inferior to the standard edition. It is mainly because the controller is more advanced which is why it consumes more battery. Sony also emphasized that the battery life is not that bad and that it is slightly shorter than the standard controller.

According to the statement from sony; “The DualSense Edge wireless controller’s operating time is moderately shorter than the original DualSense wireless controller. This is because we’ve included many more features within the same form factor and ergonomic design as the original DualSense controller”.

The little argument though is that, Sony is much aware that the controller was going to have a shorter battery life. But due to the form factor of the device, the company had no other choice than to maintain the bad battery life. So what is the use of a car full of tech without fuel?

The DualSense Edge PS5 Controller is set to launch on the 26th of January 2023. Sony can still do something about the battery life before it finally hit the shelves. But if nothing is done about it and you still feel like getting your hands on it, make sure your USB charging cable is always close by.
