They say black is slimming, but does one need slim when choosing a PlayStation 4 controller? If you’d like a little color with your new console, Sony will be offering red and blue varieties of its Dualshock 4 controllers later this year for $59. “Magma Red” and “Wave Blue” controllers will be available on launch day in Europe (Nov. 29), while North American and Latin American gamers will have to wait till “later on the year.”
Regarding the controller itself, Sony says the new iteration is like, way better than the Dualshock 3. Among the improvements: better analog sticks; improved trigger buttons; a touch pad; built-in speaker; headset jack; LED light bar; and Share button to instantly show all your Facebook friends how you got schooled in Battlefield by a 9-year-old girl.
At least the PS3 controller still sports an edge on the colors scoreboard, currently holding a 9-3 advantage.
The PS4 is set for a November 15 launch in the U.S. at $399.
