Already this summer, updated versions of the DualSense controller will go on sale, which are executed in "space colors" - black and crimson. According to representatives of Sony, the new design was inspired by the space theme. "Midnight Black includes two dark shades to show how we see space at night. Cosmic Red is a shade of red that is found throughout space, "said Isabelle Tomatis, director of one of Sony's divisions.
Sales of new products start at the beginning of summer, but the exact dates may vary, depending on the region. Interestingly, space controllers will be priced at $75, which is $5 more than the standard DualSense.
"These colors are the result of careful selection," one of the company's representatives commented on the novelty, explaining that in this way the colors will complement each other. The designers said that in both color versions, as well as in the classic white, dark blue details were used in order to better harmonize the controllers with each other. Thus, Sony are hoping that their new product will "delight the fans even more."
Recall that DualSense was released at the end of 2020 along with the PlayStation 5. Right after the release of the new controller, it received rave reviews from gamers for an improved trigger system that gives you an even better "feel" of the game. It doesn't matter if it is raining or snowing in the game, as well as what exactly your character is doing - you will feel every detail of the game. With all this in mind, we're confident the updated colors will only boost Sony's sales of the controller.
As for the PS5 itself, it has sold over 7 million copies since its launch, making the console far more successful than the PS4 in the same period.
