Two new DualSense colors are coming soon for the innovative PlayStation 5 controller. The new colors are Cosmic Red and Midnight Black, which both look great. The default controller is white, so this adds some much-needed variety. Sony says the new controllers will begin launching in retailers next month. However, an exact date was not announced as “the exact date will vary by location,” so gamers are told to check their local retailers for availability.
“Both Midnight Black and Cosmic Red feature a subtle blue hue, that produces unique shades of red and black,” explained Satoshi Aoyagi of PlayStation’s design team. “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.”

“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,” said Leo Cardoso of PlayStation’s design team. “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.”
