Midnight Black and Cosmic Red colours announced for PS5 DualSense lineup

May 14, 2021

Like clockwork, just a few days after I finally pulled the trigger on buying a second stock white DualSense controller, Sony has announced two new colours for the PS5 DualSense controller lineup – Midnight Black and Cosmic Red.

While the Midnight Black is a classic and familiar look for PlayStation controllers, since the PS2, the Cosmic Red is a bit of a departure. According to the press release, the two colours are inspired by space:

“Midnight Black features two subtly different shades of black with light grey detailing to reflect the vision of space through the night sky, and Cosmic Red offers a striking black and red design inspired by the unique vivid shades of red found throughout the cosmos.”

The controllers will be available at retailers starting on 18 June, and EBGames already has a trade-in promotion on their home page. The Midnight Black is $49 with a DualSense controller trade-in, and $64 with a DualShock 4 trade-in. Cosmic Red is $59 with a DualSense trade-in, and $74 with a DualShock 4.
