PlayStation has announced two new colours that will be joining the DualSense controller lineup starting next month: Midnight Black and Cosmic Red.
Midnight Black features two subtly different shades of black with light grey detailing to reflect how space is viewd 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.
Leo Cardoso and Satoshi Aoyagi from the PlayStation design team have shared some additional insights about the colour choice and selection process.
Cardoso said: “Our goal is to always find designs that will surprise and entice our fans, and these new colours are the result of an extensive selection process. We wanted the new controller colours to complement each other, as well as the original DualSense wireless controller and PS5 console, so we designed the colours around the theme of ‘galaxy’ as it felt like a natural progression from the original PS5 and accessories designs.”
Aoyagi added: “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 colours, so all three colors complement each other nicely. The controller’s button colours and detailing has been tailored to complement the new colours as well. We hope these new additions will bring further joy and excitement to our fans’ gaming experience.”
Price and availability of these controllers will announced at a later date.
