The Upgraded DualSense Has Been A Long Time Coming

BestBuy Canada has listed what appears to be a new version of the PlayStation DualSense on its website, setting tongues wagging that an updated take on the controller will soon be coming our way. Aside from the DualSense Edge, which retails for an eye-watering $200, we haven’t seen a comprehensive update for the controller since its launch in 2020. New styles, colours, and limited edition variants don’t count - it’s the same beast underneath all the looks. According to the listing, this new version of the controller will feature an “exceptional 12 hour battery life” on a full charge, which is significantly more than current models, but without the bells and whistles of the expensive Edge. Right now, ones I’ve been using since the PS5 came out struggle to last more than a couple of hours without needing to be plugged in, although that depends on the intensity of haptics and vibration that is being applied. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is going to tax it a little more than emulated PS1 classics, who would have thought?
