Save Some Cash On This Open-Box DualSense Edge PS5 Controller

The DualSense Edge hasn't received a discount yet, but Best Buy has an offer on like-new models that's worth checking out.


The standard DualSense controller is already one of the most technologically advanced controllers around today, but if you also want pro-style features on your controller, the DualSense Edge is the way to go. It combines the inventive features of the original hardware with impressive customization and a premium build. All of that extra tech commands a high price of $200, but right now you can get your hands on the DualSense Edge for as low as $173.

Best Buy is selling "open-box" DualSense Edge controllers for $179. The open box descriptor at Best Buy means the controller is in brand-new condition and comes with all of the original components, including three pairs of analog stick caps, two sets of removable rear triggers, a USB-C charging cable, and a carrying case. Open box products come with full warranties at Best Buy.

The only catch here is that the packaging will be opened and possibly damaged or even replaced entirely with an alternate box. But at the end of the day, what matters is the controller itself, and it should be indistinguishable from a brand-new model. Considering the DualSense Edge has yet to be discounted, this offer is worth considering.

Amazon's deal is slightly cheaper at $173.76, but it's for preowned controllers that are in "very good" condition. There could be light markings and scuffs, but you'll receive all of the original components. Amazon offers a 90-day warranty on Amazon Warehouse items such as this one. Overall, the Best Buy offer is probably the way to go considering the two are so close in price.

"The DualSense Edge incorporates years of learnings from its competitors to present something that ticks all the right boxes for a good high-end video game controller and even improves the user experience in some key ways," Tamoor Hussain wrote in GameSpot's PS5 Dualsense Edge review. "The end result is a pro controller that is iterative, but also looks and feels premium while bringing a customizability to the PlayStation gaming experience that hasn't existed before."

The DualSense Edge is not just a great PS5 controller; it's also a stellar pick for PC. But if you're also shopping for a PC controller, you should also check out Amazon's deal on brand-new Xbox Elite Series 2 controllers, which drops the price to $140. It's just one of several enticing deals on the Elite Series 2 right now. And for alternative pro-style PS5 controllers, the Victrix Pro BFG and Razer Wolverine V2 Pro are available at Amazon.
