Two new DualSense controllers have been revealed and they are pretty stunning. If you aren’t the biggest fan of the white Sony went with for their DualSense controllers or with the body of the PlayStation 5 console, then you’re in luck.
The two new colours are Cosmic Red ($94.99). and Midnight Black ($89.99) and while I’m a fan of both colours, I feel like the traditional all-black controller is calling my name. My biggest issue with the white DualSense is if you leave it and pick it up to use it, the controller scuffs easily leaving black marks that have to be wiped away. It’s not a big deal but now with the Midnight Black, this is a non-issue going forward.
Announced on the PlayStation blog, Isabelle Tomatis revealed the two new colours.
“Today, we’re thrilled to introduce two new colours that will be joining the DualSense controller lineup starting next month: Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. Midnight Black features two subtly different shades of black with light grey detailing to reflect how we view space through the night sky, and Cosmic Red offers a striking black and red design inspired by the unique vivid shades of red found throughout the cosmos.” said the post.
The new DualSense colours are set to arrive next month but the date will vary by location.
“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 colours, so all three colours compliment each other nicely. The controller’s button colours and detailing have been tailored to complement the new colours as well.” says Satoshi Aoyagi.
