Unlike the first game in the series, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor won't be arriving on PS4 and Xbox One when it launches later in April.

Resident Evil 4 is one of the PS5’s best DualSense showcases

The evolution of video game controllers: From Telstar to the PS5’s DualSense

When looking back at past console generations, the conversation often turns to graphical fidelity. And for good reason.

It was a moment where you felt like you were experiencing the future of gaming. But as video games have become more complex, so too have the peripherals we use to play them. Over on Engadget’s YouTube channel, Senior Producer Brandon Quintana recently took a…

While the $200 DualSense Edge costs a bit more than its rival, it offers a few nifty features you don't get on Microsoft's controller, combined with one potentially major shortcoming. Design For the Edge, Sony didn't stray much from its default template. From the top, the Edge looks…

Sony PlayStation DualSense Edge Review

Sony has been hesitant about making a Pro Controller for its PlayStation consoles but finally took the leap with the DualSense Edge controller for the PlayStation 5. While customisable controllers have been available from third-party manufacturers, they never really delivered when it came to quality. However, Sony’s DualSense Edge is not only an impressive pro controller, but it also comes at the perfect time. Other pro controllers by Sony’s competitors have laid the groundwork for the DualSense Edge, but PlayStation…
