DualShock 4 controller to be available in red and blue

Dualshock 4 blue

Sony has announced that the PlayStation 4 controller, also known as DualShock 4, will be available in two additional colors in Europe and North America on launch day: in blue, called “Wave Blue”, and red, called “Magma Red”. The controller will retail for $59 — same price as the regular DualShock 4. And just like the regular DualShock 4, the red and blue versions will retain the “light bar”, which is used by the PS Eye camera.

We’re not sure why Sony picked these colors, as they look very washed out. Maybe their focus groups told them the colors would appeal to more consumers. Honestly, we would have loved a white PlayStation 4 controller. Or something that stands out and doesn’t make it look like cheap plastic. What do you think of the new colors?

    • bizzy gie

      PS4 has a blue light and the representative color of PS4 is dark blue.

      Hello, Sonic the Hedgehog.

      I haven’t seen you since “Sonic: Lost World” and Mario and “Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games” were announced. How is it going?

      • Sonic the Hedgehog

        Everything is going… rather slow, heh heh. Other than Baldy McNosehair teaming up with me, I’m fine, thanks for asking!

        • Guest10000000000000

          “Baldy McNosehair”… you mean “Dr. Eggman”?

          • zackfair345

            yep, that’s who he mean. you ever played sonic colors?

          • Guest10000000000000

          • zackfair345

            cool :) that’s were he got Baldy McNosehair from

        • zackfair345

          hehehe he ain’t no genius to be creating robots that get taken down easily by you oh and about the Olympics, sorry that you had to team up with him

    • zackfair345

      • Sonic the Hedgehog

        • zackfair345

          yep. I’m always ready :)

      • Guest10000000000000

        At “768 miles per hour” I suppose…

        • zackfair345

          well he’s the fastest hedgehog

  • The Unknown Legacy

    I own a red one for PS3, it looks even better on the PS4 :O

    • Ducked

      Same here, love my red controller xD

  • Ducked

    OMIGOD I LOVE YOU SONY!

    It’s gonna be hard to choose from the Red or Blue one, I’ll probably go with Red since it’s my favorite color.

    Very glad Sony gave there controllers some colors, now if only Nintendo did that with the Wii U Pro controllers.

    • Mitch Hall

      If the Classic controllers are any indication, there will be plenty of Pro Controller colors. My personal favorite is the Gold CCP :D

      • Ducked

        I mean the new ones lol

    • zackfair345

      I agree. I chose red, it looks beautiful and wonderful I doubt the Wii U controllers will have different colours to chose from

      • Ducked

        Probably because Reggie doesn’t believe in colors :/

        • zackfair345

          probably. red’s my favourite colour and I decided to get the red controller cause it looks so cool

        • Guest10000000000000

          How so?

          • zackfair345

            I don’t know but I think Reggie hates colours

          • Guest10000000000000

            I haven’t heard from him lately, so…how would I know?

          • zackfair345

            I don’t know, but good point. Reggie = Jamaican

      • Clel

        Yeah, sadly it seems they won’t be deviating from white and black :/

        • zackfair345

          oh, well that’s a bit sad. well I’ll just get the red controller for PS4

          • Clel

            Enjoy!

          • zackfair345

            I will when I get final fantasy xv and kingdom hearts 3

          • zackfair345

            and one more thing, do you remember when Guest 10000000000000 got banned from Wii U Daily? he also got banned from PS4 daily. if you get back to the site including my comment, you should see ” this comment was deleted”

  • Mitch Hall

    They look… alright. Nothing I’d spend $60 on, but I might pick up the blue one if I can find it cheap.

    Also, I’ve never been a big fan of the “2-tone” design. I’d rather have a controller that’s one color all around, analog sticks and buttons included.

  • Deezy

    i got a clear controller for my P2. i like the red one more for the P4. all i need now is that docking charger like the one the ps3 got

        • Srpg2ishere

          As much as I don’t really care for the Xbox One I cannot deny that the controller looks sick. Seriously. It looks amazing. Too bad I’m not buying my game just for the controller. :P.

    • Guest10000000000000

      Not at all, troll.

      • Paul

        K where are the other colors for that fat Xbox one controller?

  • Kurokawamizaki

    I would like it if they made a white version of the controller, (white top with black bottom). But these two are okej, I will not get them though, my mind is set on a white one :)

  • TheDetonator

    It is nice that they are adding variety, but i prefer the black one.

  • http://www.us.playstation.com/ HyperTallih

    BLUE.

  • Nintendude

    Would like to have the red one.

  • RECKLESSgoat

    SO SEXY, ME WANT BLUE OR RED!

  • TheRedButterfly

    Anyone who says that these don’t look awesome is wrong… I (personally) HATE the feel of the Dualshock controllers (all of them), but these two look AMAZING!!! :D

  • Simon Platts

    Blue looks cool, not sure about red though

  • RYAN553298 .

    these look awesome however I cant help but wonder how good a silver one would look :)

  • Judens Claude
