In the middle of last month, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced two new colours for the DualSense controllers. They are the Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. While it wasn’t certain that these will be making it to our shores before, it is now. SIE has confirmed that they will be here on 10 June.
Pricing of the two is where things get a little unfortunate, at least for one of them. The Midnight Black colourway will come with the same price as the normal black and white version, that is RM349. But the Crimson Red colour, unfortunately and as expected, comes with a RM20 premium. In other words, it will cost RM369 when it becomes available next week.
Either way, if you’re looking to pick up an extra controller but not have them be the default colour, you will soon have more choices. If these do well in the market, maybe SIE will think about giving the PS5 similarly coloured plates as it continues making more to meet demand.
Also, you don’t need to already own a PS5 to justify buying the DualSense controllers now, especially these new colours. Steam has support for the basic features for the DualSense. And the platform’s version of Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition even supports its exclusive features like haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
