Midnight Blue and Steel Black will both be available across retailers in U.S. and Canada for $64.99 USD (MSRP) / $74.99 CAD (MSRP), while supplies last. Click here for pre-order details, or check your local retailers for availability.

    Also Metal Gear Solid V!

Yesssssssssss. Keep bringing the additional colors! I’ll take the blue one for sure, and I might pick up that steel black too. But I also agree, more ‘colorful’ colors would be nice too (like that sexy orange one that released in the EU). Maybe one day Sony can do a poll/survey to see what color users want to see next?

What about one where I can design myself?

    twitch3488 said:

    January 31st, 6:09 am

    I’d love to be able to design one like Xbox owners can fully customize their controllers.

    berianco said:

    January 31st, 9:44 am

    How about you go back to Xbox?

    T40Rs731N said:

    January 31st, 3:49 pm

    Twitch: I saw that. It was pretty cool. You could even do it at the Microsoft store. My son designed a one that looked like it belonged to Mario.

    Very cool.

    Berianco. Umm.. people play on more than one platform. Or is this false dichotomy all you cling to?

    cowmamba said:

    January 31st, 10:20 pm

    Totally agree! It would be awesome to be able to customize our own controller. That is one thing I’m a tiny bit jealous of the Xbox crowd for. But my heart belongs to PlayStation. It’d just be nice if we had a similar service.

    Wachunever said:

    January 31st, 10:48 pm

    Yes! I’d love to design one like they do on XBOX

    TheLastLemming2 said:

    February 1st, 11:22 am

    They are being goofy like Nintendo and “announcing” new colors all the time like it’s a big feature, instead of letting us design our own.

    Welmosca said:

    @ berianco – Well said.

Vizigoth04 said:

I want the steel black one. Looks fantastic.

Xcaligamer1 said:

Hasn’t steel black been out?

    drd7of14 said:

    January 31st, 6:08 am

    Unfortunately this blogpost didn’t clarify what the EU version did.

    The Metallic Black was available, but not for the Updated DS4 (Wired USB support, better thumbsticks, light that shines through the trackpad, etc)

    berianco said:

    January 31st, 9:45 am

    Imagine if it was made of steel, I’d never sweat while gaming.

drd7of14 said:

January 31st, 6:07 am

These are both pretty hot, but the Steel black definitely has my preferred vote.

I much prefer these darker toned controllers as opposed to the bright Magma Red/Wave Blue (Those are nice too though, in their own way).

Still waiting for a green DualShock 4

lol its been out in the asiaan market long time now

    berianco said:

    January 31st, 9:39 am

    Yea, but that’s a different market. New for us.

chenard4 said:

Kaz Kaan, would be pleased with this.

    berianco said:

    January 31st, 9:43 am

    Nostradamus will be pleased.

BobbySteve83 said:

I would love a controller that doesn’t wear out as easily. I shouldn’t have to buy a new controller every 4-6 months. Make them more durable. Then figure out colors.

    w0lf_takun said:

    January 31st, 9:06 am

    Do you not take care of them? I’ve had the same DS4’s for 4 years now.

    berianco said:

    January 31st, 9:38 am

    Take care of them, they invite wear & tear like every other thing.
    Use it left and right and expect it to work…hmmm, only if you take care of it

    jerk_man said:

    you… might be doing something wrong.

brn-dn said:

Steel Black is so nice looking!

EnigmaNemesis said:

January 31st, 7:42 am

Both these colors would look dope if they made the entire consoles (Slim/Pro) in them.

The blue kind of reminds me of the old PS1 Debug Units.

    berianco said:

    January 31st, 9:42 am

    Correct…the dark blue one was one was Japanese only (DTL-H1000 debugging station (NTSC/J), whereas we got the black ‘Net Yaroze’ console.

kevcom said:

Dark purple please

Please bring the Hori Onyx over to the USA. :(

    berianco said:

    January 31st, 9:45 am

    Import it if you want it that bad.

Jay_Jon said:

January 31st, 8:20 am

Can I get that sunset orange DS4 in the US!?

    berianco said:

    January 31st, 9:43 am

    Nope, import it.

AndruRC said:

January 31st, 8:36 am

But I don’t neeeeeeed six controllers!

    berianco said:

    January 31st, 9:36 am

    I do, got multiple systems!

AdamEternal4 said:

January 31st, 9:15 am

Midnight Blue looks badass. Love it! I’m not too much into metallic colours though.

Bring me a slick shade of purple and I’m all over it, just fyi.

berianco said:

January 31st, 9:35 am

Green, or emerald green, or clear green.
Please, some form of green!!!

MiCro44 said:

January 31st, 9:39 am

Still waiting for a US release of Sunset Orange controller…

lisatsunami said:

January 31st, 9:43 am

Yay on the steel black one. Briefly considered importing from Japan, but now I won’t have to.

Pro tip from a DS4 collector: I went on Amazon Spain to buy the Sunset Orange DS4. Spain was the only one of the Amazon sites that I could find that sold it. I had my best bud translate for me, but honestly, everything is the same as it would be in English.

    BlueBl1zzard said:

    January 31st, 2:09 pm

    I literally bought a Sunset Orange DS4 this morning, through my Amazon app (though from a 3rd party seller and for a higher price). But thanks for the tip!

Can you guys give us jewel tones, please? I want emerald, ruby, amethyst (purple or magenta), and sapphire. Pls Sony

JackNapierHAHA said:

January 31st, 11:52 am

I love you sony but please give me something other than some cool colors. Can we get some cool themed ones? Like one that is more than just one color change or something just more.

KBG29 said:

Loving all the controller options this generation. Some absolutely gorgeous choices on offer.

I really wish PlayStation Hardware and Accessories were available on the PlayStation Store. It would also be nice to have the ability to buy PlayStation Gear right from the PS Store. Ultimately it would be great if the PS Store was a one stop shop for all things PlayStation, and Sony.

Make a pink one!

SNAKE-EYES73 said:

That priced new dual shock 4 controllers are to pricy for my tastes seriously why does a video game controller have to be so expensive $69! whatever happened to $39-49.99!?9

NICKNAPPS said:

January 31st, 2:37 pm

I need both. I custom painted my own but these are too awesome to pass up. I also picked up the crystal blue one on black Thursday, still in the box.

delukze said:

January 31st, 6:46 pm

Please bring Sunset Orange to North America!!!

    HeathenFriar said:

    February 1st, 10:22 am

    YES! I’m with you there! The Steel Black one is great, but I REALLY want that Sunset Orange controller.

pinder2009 said:

January 31st, 9:09 pm

Can Sony please make DS4s with better battery life? The battery life is absolutely abysmal compared to the DS3. I used to charge my DS3 after a week with heavy use, now I’m charging my DS4 every 2-3 days.

    Welmosca said:

    February 1st, 10:20 pm

    You must not play enough…I need to charge ma DS4s every 2 hours.DS4 is a joke compared to DS3.

Warped said:

January 31st, 9:40 pm

OMG that Steel Black! yes! I think I’m due for another PS4 Controller >.<

Brandonmgs12 said:

January 31st, 9:46 pm

I love the colors but I wish I could choose what color I want customized. Like an Orange.

I love Orange <3

NeoDeOne said:

January 31st, 9:50 pm

The day Sony will release a PINK dualshock 4, it will be SOLD OUT, and it will keep being SOLD OUT everywhere, cause of the very high demand.

moirailedZahakk said:

February 1st, 4:33 am

imagine if they hade one made out of the reflective material, to make it look like chrome?

HeathenFriar said:

February 1st, 10:24 am

Wow, there seems to be a LOT of demand for a pink Dualshock 4! Quite a few girls play PS4, I guess. Nice.

    cjJC said:

    February 1st, 1:11 pm

    It’s 2018 dude… pink isn’t a girl color anymore ;)

cjJC said:

February 1st, 1:10 pm

LOVE LOVE LOVE these colors! I’m soooooo over the “best buy blue” color.. These are SEXY!

Two requests for future console controllers.

1) PLEASE make the output for headphones from the controller better. I plug my $500 headphones into the controller and it’s ridiculously quiet. The controllers aren’t powerful enough to output the volume enough. At least give us an attachment for people who value quality sound.

2) PLEASE MAKE A BUBBLEGUM PINK CONTROLLER! Or a Cotton Candy Pink/Blue combo :)

    jerk_man said:

    February 2nd, 10:06 am

    have you tried turning the volume up in the setting? Headphones are always plenty loud for me.

Tensuga_x said:

February 1st, 5:27 pm

I would like one that’s either lightning blue or blood red but I’m getting that steel black one

THEROBISGT said:

February 1st, 9:07 pm

The colours are really cool and I think that I would pick steel black but I don’t need it now cause I have already

Welmosca said:

February 1st, 10:17 pm

Nice very nice colors specially the Steel Black.I’d say keep bringing more colors but it doesn’t matter if y’all don’t actually fix the joke of a battery that the DS4 has.Jesus Sony step up your hardware…PS3 hardware puts the PS4 hardware to shame and of course I’m not talking power wise but quality wise.

travthezombie said:

February 1st, 11:18 pm

Why won’t they real see a elite style controller. I’m aware they have 2 licensed controllers, but I’m waiting on play station to do what Microsoft has almost prefected. Some one at Sony please read this and make my video game dreams come true

NuclearGamer95 said:

February 2nd, 4:23 am

You guys should make country controllers. So the touchpad will have the country’s flag on it, and then the rest of the Controller will have the country’s colors on it/

alyssam41 said:

February 2nd, 1:42 pm

that blue is so nice, might have to pick this controller up! <3

Kid_Fleetfoot said:

February 2nd, 8:28 pm

I would like a baseball controller like the PS3 has. And if not that, a football shaped controller which I could throw at the screen when things are not going right.

phantomhero5043 said:

February 3rd, 9:32 am

Can’t wait for that black metal! I kinda what the midnight blue because it’s very similar to the Uncharted themed controller from 2014. Either way they’re both welcoming.

Romney57 said:

February 3rd, 10:28 am

I would really like a permanently wired PS4 Pro controller, I know I can plug the micro USB cable in and switch the controller to wired mode, but that works loose and I have had problems with non responsiveness while in games, I see some other non Sony Controllers have a screw lock cable connector, but I don’t like the X-box style lay-out, if there is an official PS4 Pro controller that fits my request I would really like to hear about it as I go through several per year and am looking to purchase one ATM.

SNAKE-EYES73 said:

February 3rd, 4:35 pm

Yes they look stylish but what about other colors like yes Purple or Military Colors like a Cameo Orange?! Or just a plain Dark Green controller? That’d be cool!

SpookyDaScary21 said:

February 16th, 8:08 am
