If you’re bored of the bog-standard white PS5 DualSense controller, then it's time to add some color to your next-gen console setup. Sony announced a fresh batch of DualSense controller colors last month, and they’re now available for pre-order.
Right now, you can pre-order a Nova Pink (opens in new tab) or Starlight Blue (opens in new tab) PS5 DualSense controller for $74 at Amazon. If you fancy a pink or blue pad for your PS5 it’s probably worth getting your pre-order now ahead of their launch on January 28. An additional new color, Galactic Purple (opens in new tab), will also be joining the lineup. For now, it's exclusively available at Sony Direct and unfortunately, the retailer is currently sold out.
PS5 DualSense Controller (Galactic Purple): $74 @ Sony Direct (opens in new tab)
The PS5 DualSense Controller in Galactic Purple is currently exclusively available at Sony Direct. The retailer is now sold out of pre-orders but there may be a launch day restock on Friday, January 14.
Sony will also be releasing a series of PS5 covers in the same shades as each of the available DualSense colors. This will allow owners to match their controller and console faceplates. These plates are set to launch over the course of 2022 and will cost $54, the Cosmic Red (opens in new tab) and Midnight Black (opens in new tab) plates can be pre-ordered now from Sony Direct.
Beyond the snazzy new color scheme, these DualSense controllers are identical in function to the standard controller included with the PS5 console. They do however retail for slightly more than the stock white pad, which costs $69. This $5 price increase is definitely a little cheeky from Sony, but we can’t resist a gaming controller with a snazzy color scheme.
While buying an actual PS5 console remains extremely tricky, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that the same fate doesn’t befall these new DualSense controller colors. If you are in need of a console to go alongside your brightly colored pad, make sure to check out our PS5 restock hub for the latest updates and those all-important retailer links.
