Sony PlayStation PS5 DualSense controllers cosmic red midnight black South Africa

Following PlayStation’s reveal of the black and red versions of the PS5 DualSense controllers, pre-order and pricing details have arrived for South Africa.

The controllers were originally announced on 13 May, with local retailers revealing pricing on 17 May.

The two new colours are Midnight Black and Cosmic Red.

Midnight Black features a deep shade of black with light grey detailing, while Cosmic Red boasts maroon-like panels over a black shell.

Both controllers still have the blue notification light strips running along their centre.

“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,” said PlayStation design team member, Leo Cardoso in a statement.

PS5 DualSense controllers come equipped with adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. Upon launch, critics regarded them as a highlight of the PS5 console experience.

PlayStation published a video showing off the two new colours:

Currently, the red and black controllers are only available as standalone products. They don’t come included in PS5 console purchases.
