Sony has introduced its first new colours for PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller: a “cosmic crimson” mannequin that includes a two-tone crimson and black design, and an all-black “midnight black” model that brings to thoughts the traditional PS2, PS3, and PS4 controller designs.
Till now, Sony has solely provided the DualSense controller in a black-and-white colour scheme to match the PS5 (which includes a comparable contrasting theme), so the brand new colour choices are actually welcome ones.
The midnight black choice is especially notable: the primarily white DualSense was a giant departure for Sony’s designs, which have largely trended towards black and grey consoles and controllers by default for your complete life span of the PlayStation model. The brand new black choice (technically nonetheless a two-tone design, with two completely different shades of black) is nearer to these different controllers, although.
Proper now, Sony has solely introduced new colours for the controller, though the PlayStation 5 console does characteristic detachable face plates — so it’s doable that the corporate might introduce matching plates for the PS5 someday sooner or later. Enterprising firms like Dbrand have already began to fill that hole, although, with their own third-party options.
The 2 new colour schemes needs to be out there to buy someday subsequent month (Sony says that dates will probably be depending on particular person retailers). Pricing hasn’t been introduced but, however for reference, the usual DualSense controller prices $69.99.
After all, all that assumes that you’ll find a PS5 within the first place — one thing that Sony admits is likely to be troublesome to do until 2022 on the earliest.
