When the PlayStation 5 launched back in November of 2020, there was only one controller colour available: White. That’s fine for players seeking a futuristic, almost clean look when playing their favourite next-gen games, but what about those wanting to make a bit more of a fashion statement? Sony has realised the error of its ways in the form of the new Cosmic Red DualSense controller.
Being a new two-tone design that combines the DualSense’s naturally black underside and analogue stocks, the rest of the controller is coated in a beautiful deep crimson shade. Inspired heavily by the red found “throughout the cosmos” according to PlayStation’s design team, the Cosmic Red DualSense is the first of many galaxy-themed colourways set to release soon as part of the ongoing PlayStation 5 accessory line.
As well as coming coated in an attractive red tone, the Cosmic Red DualSense controller is still well-equipped to enhance your next-gen play experience. It primarily does this through the inclusion of built-in haptic feedback and adaptive trigger support, both of which are used to enhance your feeling of immersion in most PS5 games. Especially when playing a game set in space, it’s hard to appreciate the Cosmic Red DualSense.
Cosmic Red is now one of three available DualSense colours on the market, joining the existing White and releasing alongside the pared-back Midnight Black for players who crave the simple things. The PlayStation 5 itself may still only be available in White, but at least there’s a new way to express yourself through the controller.
