Sony has released a new firmware update for the PlayStation 5 which adds support for the DualSense Edge controller.
System software 22.02-06.50.00 is being rolled out and allows Sony’s new pro controller to work effectively with the console. If you don’t already have the software, you should get it as soon as it becomes available in your region.
If the software failed to install for some reason, you can restart the process manually by going to the downloads/uploads section of the control center, click on “Show error information” and press “Try again”.
In addition to controller support, the latest software “improves system performance”. There don’t seem to be any other feature updates at this time.
The DualSense Edge controller will be released on Thursday, January 26, 2023, with pre-orders available now. It costs £209.99 in the UK, $199.99 in the US and €239.99 in Central Europe and brings a whole new set of specs to your PS5 games.
The shifters are replaceable, for starters. The game is customizable to change control options, like sensitivity and travel distance of the triggers. Additionally, you can remap inputs and set up different profiles for different games. The switches on the edge can then be used to switch between them.
The back buttons are also interchangeable, and the whole kit comes with extra buttons, caps, and a braided USB cable.
Those who don’t yet have a PlayStation 5 will finally be able to get hold of one, as it seems Sony’s stock issues are a thing of the past. The console appears to be available at a number of retailers, with bundles on the standard and Digital Edition models.
If you opt for a new PS5 console, the latest system software will be downloaded automatically during the first installation, so you don’t have to worry about installing it yourself.
