While the DualSense and DualSense Edge were criticized for their battery life and capacity, Sony claimed that the smaller battery was to ensure that games could take advantage of the DualSense Edge’s capabilities while keeping the controller roughly the same size. But the Edge has an advantage over the entry-level DualSense controller, as gamers can use the included USB lock accessory to ensure the included USB-C cable doesn’t get disconnected from the controller side so easily. The lock only works on the Edge, as it has two holes next to the USB-C port that aren’t present on the base model.

Prior to the controller’s release, Sony released a PS5 firmware update in January 2023 to include compatibility with the controller. While it remains to be seen what further improvements Sony has in mind for the DualSense and DualSense Edge controllers, the premium Edge controller will now make its way into the hands of more gamers thanks to increased availability.
