Earlier this week, PlayStation announced that it will release two new PlayStation 5 DualSense controllers in different color schemes. The announcement was greeted with joy and excitement by a number of fans who wanted different color options beyond the black-and-white standard controller that has existed since the launch of the PS5 last year. And while both new controllers are available for pre-order at the moment, it seems that for one reason or another, not everyone will retail at the same price.
Yes, for some strange reason there is a price difference between the Cosmic Red and Midnight Black PS5 DualSense controllers, which should be released in the near future. The Midnight Black controller, which, as you can see from its name, is completely covered in black, is available at a retail price of $ 69.99. This is actually the same price as the standard white and black DualSense model you can find on store shelves right now.
Relatively, the Cosmic Red model sells for another five dollars more worth $ 74.99. So why exactly? Is there a Cosmic Red DualSense that the Midnight Black model doesn̵
Whether you’ve ever accidentally noticed – or maybe just forgotten – Sony has been charging more for controllers this way for a long time. During the lifetime of the PlayStation 4, the publisher will again ask customers to pay $ 5 more for all the controllers, which seemed like a “premium”. So basically anything other than standard black and white controller models has always been more expensive, and that seems to be something Sony is bringing here in the PS5 era.
Despite the slight increase in price, what do you think about this Cosmic Red DualSense controller? Are you planning to choose one for yourself? If so, you can expect to find one in a store near you starting next month on June 11, which happens to be the same day. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will release.
