The Best PS5 Controller In 2024

PlayStation's DualSense controller is great, but it isn't the only great option for PS5 owners. From competitive PS5 controllers to racing wheels and fight sticks, here are the best PlayStation controllers in 2024.


While the PlayStation 5 has many great features, one of the best is its DualSense controller. The latest iteration of Sony's gamepad is not only comfortable to hold, it also packs tons of innovative features that boost immersion while playing. For a long time, the DualSense was the only PS5 controller worth recommending, but in 2024, PS5 users finally have a few more options, including the long-awaited DualSense Edge, PlayStation's first-party pro controller. The DualSense Edge isn't the only competitive controller worthy of being deemed one of the best PS5 controllers. PDP's Victrix Pro BFG, an officially licensed controller with a similar focus, is a strong competitor that offers different features that may appeal to you.

Whether you're looking for the best PS5 controller for general use (spoiler: It's the DualSense) or options for fighting games, racing games, and streaming Netflix, there are a handful of great controllers we recommend using with the PS5 from reliable brands like Logitech, Razer, and Thrustmaster. And of course, we're taking a look at the growing lineup of competitive controllers that give PS5 users more customization features.
