Today Sony announced via a blog post that their DualSense controller launched alongside the white only PlayStation 5, would now be available in Cosmic Red and Midnight Black. Gamers everywhere have been hungry for other color options and have taken to skinning their controllers and consoles. Now Sony has heard their cries and is delivering the first alternative color options.
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.Isabelle Tomatis, Senior Director, PS VR, eSports, Peripherals Marketing and Licensing, SIE
The PlayStation Design team 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 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.”Satoshi Aoyagi
