The new controller colors needed to match each other, but also maintain an affinity with the wireless controller. Original DualSense and the PS5 console. For this reason we studied the colors following the theme of the "galaxy": it seemed to us the natural evolution of the original design of PS5 and its accessories "- Leo Cardoso

Also in the colors of the original DualSense wireless controller there is a shade of blue, thanks to which all and three colors match perfectly. In addition, the colors and details of the controller keys have been specially designed to complement the new colors. We hope these new features will make our fans' gaming experience even more enjoyable and fun. - Satoshi Aoyagi
