PS5: Sony introduces Pro Controller DualSense Edge
Sony has presented a professional controller for the PS5 that some customization options offers. Gamers can customize controls and swap out back buttons like stick caps. Buttons can be reassigned or deactivated, the sensitivity of the sticks and triggers can be regulated. According to Sony, this can be advantageous in racing games, for example, since the controls are more precise and tailored to the user.
The created controller profiles can be saved and called up later. So it is possible individual adjustments specific to first person shooters only to create, while in other games just different settings are used. The profile change runs via the Fn key. Controls can also be reassigned while playing.
