DualSense Edge Controller Compatibility with PSVR 2

We already know that the PS5 DualSense Controller does not work with the vast majority of PSVR games, which require the standard PS4-era DualShock 4 controllers. Your PS5 DualSense controller will, however, work with a few PSVR games, such as Star Wars Squadrons.

According to the official PlayStation website, your new DualSense Edge Controller will be compatible with the upcoming PSVR 2. However, like the previous compatibility between the PS5 DualSense Controller and PSVR, you’ll have to wait for a compatibility notice for each game.
