Sony announces Midnight Black and Cosmic Red colours for PS5 DualSense wireless controllers

Sony announces Midnight Black and Cosmic Red colours for PS5 DualSense wireless controllers

Sony has announced two new colours for their PlayStation 5 DualSense controllers- Cosmic Red and Midnight Black. Both of these DualSense wireless controllers will have a worldwide release next month. Sony says the exact release date will vary by location. 

Midnight Black resembles the night sky. It features two different shades of black with light grey detailing. The Cosmic Red colour is inspired by the distinct shades of red found in the cosmos. 

DualSense wireless controller design team’s Leo 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 PlayStation 5 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.”

The design team’s Satoshi 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 colours compliment each other nicely. The controller’s button colours and detailing has been tailored to complement the new colours as well.”

Sony's DualSense controller for PlayStation houses some advanced features. The haptic feedback feature gives users physically responsive feedback based on in-game actions and through the adaptive triggers feature, users can experience different levels of tension as they interact with the environment in the game.
