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?

      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?

    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.

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

    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.

          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.

    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 :)
