Since day 1, we had only one option: the black and white stormtrooper look, which most gamers like personally, but it’s cool to get some additional colors. Going to the PlayStation youtube channel, you will find that Sony has announced two new colors for the DualSense PS5 controller, i.e., the complete black controller called “Midnight Black” and a mixed combination of the red and black controller called “Cosmic Red.”
There’s a trailer which can be seen on the Youtube channel of Playstation. The Cosmic Red PS5 controller makes us reminded of the Xenoblade version of the switch pro controller. This has a slight purplish kind of shade or purplish leading red shade, which has a silk-like quality. The Midnight Black PS5 controller looks excellent with more minor color combinations, which you would enjoy. Its subtle and minimal color combinations with white controls on it and the blue highlight at the top make it a unique controller.
As far as the price points go, the black version will be the same price as the white version. So that’s going to cost 70 USD or 5250 INR. But the red will cost a little bit more, i.e., 75 USD or 5625 INR, as it is an attractive colored controller. It must be noted that both the black and the red controllers will be released on 11 June 2021, which is a little less than a month.
It’s good to see that Sony is finally starting to release some customization options. All that’s left to do now is for them to release the plates that match these controller colors. No doubt we will see even more colors, more designs, patterns, and limited edition plates, perhaps so we don’t have to get a new console to give that limited edition look. It should be so that we can swap out the plates, and that’s the kind of fun aspect of how they implemented the plates.
