Two new colors for the PS5 DualSense controllers are finally here, with the unveiling of Cosmic Red and Midnight Black.
When it comes to console customization, there’s not much to make your PS5 console unique. Of course, there’s a way to get a blue, black, or red PS5 right now, but very little in the way of official options.
Thankfully, controller customization just got a major boost thanks to two new DualSense controller colors unveiled by PlayStation itself. We had heard about the incoming DualSense variants via a leak earlier this week, but it’s nice to finally see the new devices in action.

PS5 DualSense Cosmic Red & Midnight Black Controllers
If you’re in the market for a new DualSense controller, the PS5s Cosmic Red and Midnight Black versions are just around the corner.
Finally, it’s possible to get an official controller without the PS5s white color scheme. When it comes to unique controllers, Xbox has always been ahead of the game.
Now, Sony fans have two new controllers to enjoy, each with a unique design. The Midnight Black variant looks perfect to go alongside the black PS5 we’ve always asked for.
With two subtly different shares of black and grey, Sony claims the controller “aims to reflect how we view space through the night sky.”
Meanwhile, the Cosmic Red DualSense is an eye-catching pop of color, without being overly bright. It’s a very sleek-looking controller, “inspired by the unique shades of red found throughout the cosmos.”
“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,” claims design team member Leo Cardoso. “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.”
Personally, we’re a fan of the Cosmic Red design, as strange as Sony makes it sound. We can’t wait to get our hands on the new DualSense and it won’t be a long wait until we can.
It’s entirely possible that these controllers may shed some light on what the new PS5 redesign will look like! Could we get a console that matches the Cosmic Red or Midnight Black color schemes?
Cosmic Red & Midnight Black PS5 Controller Release Date
Both the Cosmic Red and Midnight Black DualSense controllers release next month on June 18.
It won’t be long before the devices hit store shelves, with only a little over a month to go. While June 18 is the date provided by PlayStation UK, the release window is said to vary by location.
And there’s more good news for Sony fans, as PS5 stock shortages could soon be over!
If you’re yet to get your hands on a next-gen device, this retailer has PS5 consoles in stock for walk-ins from next week onward. However, they’re not going to be telling customers about the devices, so it’s best to get in the know while you can!
Meanwhile, here are all the retailers restocking the PS5 this week, from May 10-16! Hopefully, the new DualSense controller variants are easier to find than the console itself…
