Since the PS5 launched, the standard white-and-black DualSense controller has been the only option available. That’s about to change. Sony announced two new DualSense models coming soon: Cosmic Red and Midnight Black. The new designs are set to release on June 11 (June 18 in the UK) but you can preorder them now (see at Amazon, or Amazon UK).
The Midnight Black model is black and dark gray, making it reminiscent of the DualShock controllers going back to PS2. It retails for $69.99/ £59.99. The Cosmic Red version has a red-and-black design and retails for $74.99/ £64.99.

These new DualShock designs support all the same features that make the original DualShock controller special. They offer haptic feedback and adaptive triggers that can put up varying levels of resistance, depending on what you’re doing in games designed to take advantage of them. They also have a built-in microphone, speaker, and headset jack that lets you plug in any standard 3.5mm earbuds or headphones.
While these represent the first new color designs of the DualSense, they won’t likely be the last. The PS4 DualShock controller got many colorful releases over the previous console generation. And if the introduction of the Midnight Black and Cosmic Red DualSense are any indication, the PS5 era just may follow suit.
