DualSense Edge vs Xbox Elite Series 2

To better understand the DualSense Edge, let’s take a look at the specs (so far), dive into its standout features, and see how it compares to the Xbox Elite Series 2, in addition to the base DualSense and Xbox wireless controllers. We’ll give a brief overview here, but check out ours full function on Also compare the two controllers here on IGN.

Adjustable trigger hair locks

The DualSense Edge features adjustable trigger hair locks on the back of the device, similar to the Elite line. This means you can adjust the travel distance of the controller’s triggers, which is useful if you’re playing competitive shooters or if you want to minimize dead zone when playing racing games.

button mapping

Button remapping is also available on both controllers. The Xbox Elite Series 2 gives you three different ways to remap buttons, including one that requires going to the Accessories app on your Xbox. The DualSense Edge, as mentioned on the PlayStation Blog, features an “on-controller UI” with a dedicated Fn button that lets you adjust your controller’s settings and other things like game volume.

Interchangeable stick modules

One thing that certainly gives the DualSense Edge a competitive edge is the ability to swap out the stick modules, which the Xbox Elite controller doesn’t offer. Although the stick modules are sold separately, the fact that you can fully switch thumbsticks is a big deal given the reports of controller drift since the PS5 launched. The option to swap out the thumbsticks helps increase the longevity of the DualSense Edge.

However, both controllers come with detachable thumbsticks. The Xbox Elite Series 2 offers a set of six thumbsticks with adjustable tension: two standard, two classic, one high and one wide dome. The DualSense Edge offers three types of rod caps: Standard, High Dome and Low Dome. For more premium controllers, check out our Xbox Elite Series 2 Controller review.
