Two new PS5 DualSense controller colors announced

PS5 DualSense controller Midnight Black Cosmic Red

The black DualSense controller is here… well, almost here.

Sony announced two new controller color options today: Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. The controllers are set to hit shelves starting in June 2021. A specific date was not announced.

According to PlayStation Blog:

Midnight Black features two subtly different shades of black with light grey detailing to reflect how we view space through the night sky, and Cosmic Red offers a striking black and red design inspired by the unique vivid shades of red found throughout the cosmos.

“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 complement each other nicely,” says Satoshi Aoyagi, a controller designer for Sony. “We hope these new additions will bring further joy and excitement to our fans’ gaming experience.”

My Take

Currently, the only color option is the default black and white DualSense controller that comes packaged with PS5. So these are welcome additions.
