Whilst the PS5’s divisive two-tone design has led some to switch out huge items of plastic for a extra unified glance, this month did no less than see Sony liberate some reliable new colour choices for the very good DualSense controller. There are actually “cosmic pink” and “nighttime black” fashions that would possibly attraction to you greater than the black and white default.
The black controller doesn’t appear all that fascinating, however as partial to pink gadgets I ordered the pink one in to look the way it seems to be in particular person. The colour is in truth rather extraordinary — Sony’s advertising data puts the controller in entrance of a brilliant pink nebula, consistent with the “cosmic pink” title, and it’s a lovely excellent fit.
Principally, it’s just a little pinker than you could be expecting, falling someplace between pink, ruby, and raspberry. I believe it seems to be excellent with the black trim and manages to really feel suitable for the PS5’s aesthetic.
And sure, the tiny PlayStation symbols microtexture is again, although it’s nonetheless just about not possible to look with the bare eye:
Sony is rather sluggish to liberate its first PS5 controller colour permutations. Microsoft had black, white, and blue choices to be had on the release of the Xbox Sequence X and Sequence S, and shortly adopted up with pink, yellow, and camo choices.
I’ve the pink Sequence X controller too, and it’s a a lot more easy, primary-color color than the PS5. The variation is apparent after they’re subsequent to one another.
The pink and black PS5 controllers are out this week in Japan and will have to be to be had subsequent week in North The united states, although just like the PS5 itself it’ll most certainly be tough to seek out inventory. The black model prices $69.99, whilst the pink model is for some inexplicable reason why $five dearer at $74.99.
