If you are in the market for a new PS5 DualSense controller. Or perhaps you still don’t have a PS5 because you can’t find one but want to get a controller in the meantime, then Sony has two awesome new shades to choose from. In June, the gaming giant plans on releasing both the Cosmic Red DualSense Controller and the Midnight Black DualSense Controller in South Africa.
South Africans looking at picking these new accessories up will be happy to know that both of them will retail in SA for R1,499. The same price as the currently white version. However, we don’t know when they will land in South Africa just yet. The US will get them on 11 June, the UK on 18 June so perhaps these devices will launch locally around then.
If you are looking at buying one of the two new DualSense controllers then you need to make sure you pre-order. We heard that only a few hundred are coming to SA. You can pre-order both the Cosmic Red DualSense and Midnight Black DualSense in South Africa from Nexus and other retailers today.
When talking about the design process of the new shades of colour, Sony said:
“Our goal is to always find designs that will surprise and entice our fans, and these new colors are the result of an extensive selection process. We wanted the new controller colors to complement each other, as well as the original DualSense wireless controller and PS5 console, so we designed the colors around the theme of ‘galaxy’ as it felt like a natural progression from the original PS5 and accessories designs.” – Leo Cardoso
“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 colors, so all three colors complement each other nicely. The controller’s button colors and detailing has been tailored to complement the new colors as well.
We hope these new additions will bring further joy and excitement to our fans’ gaming experience.” – Satoshi Aoyagi
