The new controller and $20 replaceable stick modules will be available for preorder next Tuesday, Oct. 25, only through PlayStation Direct. It'll be available from other retailers from Feb. 23, 2023.
Players will be able to remap or deactivate specific button inputs, adjust stick sensitivity, reduce travel distance of triggers and swap stick caps between standard, high dome and low dome depending on what you prefer for your grip. There are two sets of swappable back buttons -- half dome and lever -- along with replaceable stick modules (sold separately).

You can save multiple profiles for the PS5 controller for specific games or people -- like one suited for first-person shooter games and another for racing games. You'll also be able to access the controller profile settings menu from the controller itself while you're playing.
The controller comes with a USB Type-C braided cable with a connector housing, and a carry case from which you can charge it.
