Up until this point, Sony didn’t really offer much variety in the way of DualSense wireless controllers for PS5, with just the routine white colors. Don’t get us wrong, it’s great, but we’ve been waiting for these to get some kind of paint job. Well, our wish has been granted.
Today, over on the PlayStation Blog, Sony revealed two new DualSense controllers with dazzling colors that fans can’t wait to get their hands on – Cosmic Red and Midnight Black. Both are set to arrive on June 11 th, and are available for pre-order on PlayStation Direct. (They’ll be at additional retailers as well.)
PlayStation designer Leo Cardoso noted, “Our goal is to always find designs that will surprise and entice our fans, and these new colors are the result of an extensive selection process. We wanted the new controller colors to complement each other, as well as the original DualSense wireless controller and PS5 console, so we designed the colors around the theme of ‘galaxy’ as it felt like a natural progression from the original PS5 and accessories designs.”
A second designer, Satoshi Aoyagi, added, “Both Midnight Black and Cosmic Red feature a subtle blue hue, that produces unique shades of red and black. A blue hue is also present in the original DualSense wireless controller colors, so all three colors complement each other nicely. The controller’s button colors and detailing has been tailored to complement the new colors as well. We hope these new additions will bring further joy and excitement to our fans’ gaming experience.”
These are bound to fly off the shelves quickly, so you may want to get those pre-orders in. Ours are already on standby!
