The first DualSense Edge hands-on previews as well as an official overview video from PlayStation overnight, but the largest piece of news comes from The Verge which got a statement from PlayStation on the battery life for the DualSense Edge.
Sony has confirmed that the DualSense Edge has a moderately shorter battery life than the original DualSense controller. This is largely due to the fact that it has the same form-factor as the original controller, but then also has completely removable components which may mean less room for battery life.
“The DualSense Edge wireless controller’s operating time is moderately shorter than the original DualSense wireless controller because we’ve included many more features within the same form factor and ergonomic design as the original DualSense controller. We wanted to strike a good balance between wireless operating time and delivering robust, high-performance features. Additionally, the longer USB braided cable is also great for competitive players who prefer playing with a wired connection to avoid wireless interference – this option preserves battery life.” said PlayStation to The Verge.
