PS5 controller black and red versions: Confirmed price, release date and where to pre-order
UK and USA pre-order pages have appeared, confirming the price and release date of the red and black PS5 controllers.
Sony has announced that PS5 will soon be launching red and black controllers, the first non-white colour options for owners of the powerful next-gen console, and pre-orders have already begun in the UK and USA.
Along with some snazzy names (Midnight Black and Cosmic Red), these new controllers will have the same next-gen features as the original PlayStation 5 DualSense controller - that means you'll get adaptive triggers, haptic feedback and a built-in microphone, as well as a nice lick of paint.
Getting into granular detail, the company says in an official PlayStation blog post, "Midnight Black features two subtly different shades of black with light grey detailing to reflect how we view 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."

How much is the red and black PS5 controller price?
If you're wondering why these exact colours were chosen, Sony's blog says, “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. 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.”
