PS5 DualSense Controller Price Confirmed, And They Don't Come Cheap

PS5 DualSense Controller Price Confirmed, And They Don't Come Cheap

When you bring home your shiny new PlayStation 5 this November, it'll come packaged with one of the all-new DualSense controllers, replete with all its weird and wonderful-sounding next-gen features. Of course, the odds are high that you'll probably want an extra controller, right?

Whether you intend to keep one spare for friends, or if you just want an extra one on standby in case you hurl your main controller into the sun while playing Demon's Souls, it makes good sense to ensure second controller is on standby at all times. The bad news is that we now know how much a DualSense controller will cost independently of the PlayStation 5, and it's not cheap.

In the UK, the current asking price for a spare DualSense controller is an eye-watering £60. I know none of us were exactly expecting it to come cheap, but a few of us remember when you could pick up a second controller for nearly half that. All that haptic feedback and adaptive trigger functionality has a price, obviously. I'd also argue that this stings all that more given that we won't be able to use our perfectly functional DualSense 4 controller on PS5.

The PS5 Controller Has Already Spawned A Ton Of Memes

If you happen to have an extra £60 to fart away on top of the £449 for the PlayStation 5 (£359 if you went for the digital edition), I'm happy for you. Truly. For a lot of us though, I think that's a bit of a spicy price tag so soon after launch. I know I'm going to have to wait for a little bit before I can pick up a second controller... although here's hoping that some crappy third-party alternative launches. I miss Mad Catz, which is not something I ever thought I'd say.

Ah well. There are plenty of people out there who don't seem to think £60 is asking that much for a spare controller, which is good to know. Looking past this one particular aspect of the PS5 that just doesn't sit right with me, I'm pretty happy with everything else in terms of price... even if pre-ordering a console here in the UK has proven to be a challenge of herculean proportions.
