Unlike a mouse and keyboard on personal computers, console gamers are used to controllers. Devices that sit conformably in the hand and provide just the right amount of buttons to effectively command onscreen avatars. They come in all shapes and sizes, and are recognisable elements of some of the biggest brands in gaming. Sony’s DualShock controllers, for example, are iconic symbols of the PlayStation brand. Now Sony’s latest version is getting two new limited edition colours in the form of the Midnight Blue and Steel Black DualShock 4 controllers.
Of the two colours, the Midnight Blue is the newest. After all, the Steel Black DualShock 4 did make the rounds in 2016, but only for a limited time. The all-new Midnight Blue DualShock 4 features a colour that I like to call: understatedly beautiful. Unlike the gaudy gold and silver or the effervescent bright red and blue colour options, this grey blue variant is subtle, yet gorgeous.
The Steel Black DualShock 4 is also just as wonderful. Featuring a colour that is like a “shiny black”. Although I am a huge fan of the colour blue, there is something about the Steel Black colour that really appeals to me. As such, I currently have one of these on order as the d-pad on my bright blue controller recently “became inactive”. It literally just stopped working.
Both limited edition colours are based on the PlayStation 4 Pro edition of the DualShock 4. Namely they feature a redesigned touchpad, direct USB support and better bluetooth support.
The Midnight Blue and Black Steel DualShock 4 controllers will be available in most major retail outlets from 7th March 2018, and have a suggested retail price of R999.
