Ever since the design of the PlayStation 5 was revealed, I’ve been wondering how beautiful the console and the new DualSense controller will look in black. Until now, it seemed like the only way to get close to that was with a replacement PS5 skin or plates. Now, Sony is finally bringing us one step closer to that vision with two new colors for the new PS5 controllers.
Sony announced today that the DualSense controller for PlayStation 5 will be available in two new colors, Midnight Black and Cosmic Red, and no kidding, they look amazing.
Midnight Black, which is basically matte black, is what my dreams are made of. It’s all black, it looks impressive, and it makes me wonder if I made good judgment by not buying the PS5 when it was available for a small window in India. Cosmic Red isn’t exactly my cup of tea, but I’d be lying if I said it doesn’t look good. It’s a dazzling red color that will undoubtedly look amazing too.
The company hasn’t announced when we’ll be able to buy these controllers, other than hinting at global availability sometime next month. The company also added that the exact dates of availability will vary by location, so it is unknown when the controllers will be heading to India.
DualSense controllers are probably the best example of next-gen gaming I’ve seen on PlayStation 5 so far. They bring advanced features like adaptive triggers and immersive haptic feedback, and their slightly heavier build makes for a much more comfortable gamepad than the PS4 DualShock controllers I’ve been using for years.
Hopefully the new colors will be available soon in India. So if you’re itching to get your hands on these new colors, stay tuned because we’ll post more updates when they come out.
