While it’s quite hard to find a PlayStation 5 in stock at retail prices these days, Sony has announced two new DualSense controller colors which will surely get the attention of many gamers. It’s the much-needed Midnight Black color and a Cosmic Red color.
Sony says that the new controllers are scheduled to be available next month onwards worldwide. Sony mentions that the new Midnight Black model comes with two subtly shades of black and light grey that details how we view the space through the night sky, while the Cosmic Red model features a black and red color combination and is inspired by the unique vivid shades of red found throughout the cosmos.
Sony also mentions that they have been taking note of all the amazing feedback from the PlayStation community regarding the new DualSense wireless controller.
Leo Cardoso and Satoshi Aoyagi from the design team had also shared some additional insights about the color choice and selection process:
“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.”– Leo Cardoso
“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 compliment 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.”– Satoshi Aoyagi
The new DualSense controllers are surely going to run out of stock, especially the Midnight Black model. Many PS5 owners have already bought third-party PS5 faceplates to transform their console into an all-black PS5 model or other custom colors, and this announcement is surely going to get them excited.
