Two new DualSense controller colors revealed
Sony has announced that two new color variants of the DualSense controller will be hitting store shelves next month.
First is Midnight Black, which features two different shades of black with light grey detailing and is designed “to reflect how we view space through the night sky,” according to Isabelle Tomatis, senior director of PSVR, eSports, and peripheral marketing and licensing at SIE. Joining it is Cosmic Red with its black and red design that is “inspired by the unique vivid shades of red found throughout the cosmos.”
“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,” designer Leo Cardoso added. “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.”
The Midnight Black controller is priced at $69.99, while the Cosmic Red controller costs $74.99. Both controllers have a release date of June 11th listed on the PlayStation Direct website. However, Sony notes that the exact release date will vary based on location.
