Several photos of the DualSense controller were recently leaked online and one of those is the black version.
The Black version will come with white buttons? Just ... why? Why can't it be all murdered out? Wait ... how's the black console gonna look? 😦
No. This is just a white controller with the white plates changed to black plates. IMO If/when they manufacture a black one, you better believe it will have black buttons.
I don't get the downvotes. Are people really digging a black dual-sense with white face buttons??
This seems to be more of a prototype than a retail version.
It’s premature to say this is a ‘leak’ as we don’t yet know if this is an official product.
People on this site will down vote any comment that puts PlayStation in bad light. I have reason to believe this is paid marketing.
People down vote because you are jumping to conclusions about the console based on “leaks” of the controller which are more than likely not real official product pictures. But I didnt think this had to be explained.
This looks flat out fake to me.
Yea ... seems so
From what I understand it's probably a prototype they used for FCC filings.
I def want a black controller, I can't stop seeing black sphaghetti strap tank top... the b&w one can be the kids controller :-p
@gamer Assuming you are a gamer you should know It is what it is and later there’s going to be different colors and patterns
Looks more like a leotard to me.
Aren’t you a big time Xbox only fan?
@storm I have all of the consoles. My favorite ecosystem is Xbox, but they all have their strengths.
It's not ideal, but to me it's more acceptable than the black touchpad on the white DS4 controller.
Yeah the white buttons ruined it. Black buttons with coloured symbols, please.
DualSense Soulja Boy edition
Can't wait to start collecting the various themed and color alternatives.
That would be a cool, albeit expensive, collection.
It's not as pricey as you may think. I tend to try and keep the ones I buy under the $40 mark. Im up to 17 DS4 variants with the most $ ones being the 500 million and 20th anniversary editions. those were close to $100 ea as i didnt get them on their initial release and had to settle for collectors pricing.
Would be cool if the controller had easily changed face plates like the rumor floating around the ps5 will have. Although I imagine that wouldn't apply to the buttons or control sticks/d-pad.
They look really odd with those white buttons.
I think white buttons actually look good on a PlayStation controller. Like The Spider-Man PS4 Controller for example.
Oof dem face buttons. They should just go back to the classic black buttons with the pink, green, red, and blue symbols.
If you scroll down someone has a side by side pic. I think the white ones are placements not the real buttons. If the one on the left hand picture is what Sony do this looks far better than the white controller. Personally I don't like the white on the ps5 controllers or console think it would look better all back with the ps blue. Never likes the Wiiu in all white compared to the back.
Yeeeeaaaaah, you're gonna have to change those face buttons, that would be great.
They look like an early concept version instead of the finished product. Considering how great the white one looks, where is the dual tone in the black version?
Thank you! I know I’m in the minority but I’m not digging the white and black.
I've been quite vocal about this since they revealed the look of the console too. I'd be really angry if just the dual tone is offered at launch, and then 6-12 months later they offer an all black. Not like they'd allow me to refund my launch console for the all black.
I'm not sure if you're in the minority (if you looked beyond this website). Pure Black with traditional coloured buttons would look so much nicer imho.
This just looks like they've spray painted over the white controller...
Looks absolute garbage compared to the white one to to be honest. The white face buttons wants me to poke my eyes out. Is this real? Really?
I think there are diods in the buttons so they light upp in the classic colors!
Heard a rumor about it in June. Take it with a grain of salt.
Looks fake. The blue accents are missing.
It's not turned on.

Looks utterly disgusting. Must be a early concept version, prototype or fake.
It is concept for a fake prototype. And utterly disgusting.
they are rumors about the black edition at launch.
Looks like it might be from a dev kit or a prototype, unless it's a proper fake up.
Yeah, I'm not buying that black controller. The white buttons look awful in my opinion. If they make a good looking black controller with colored buttons than yeah, now we're talking.
Looks like it’s probably just a dev unit controller.
Just gimme that controller - could be pink with yellow spots, idk, I want it!
this looks like an xbox controller especially in black. Say what you want but at least the shape its the same thing
These seems legit but like everyone is says with the white buttons it makes it look fake. The controller has also been shown with the traditional color scheme however the core body button is clear.
While this is somewhat good news since it means there is a Black Version planned, I don't much care for hte black controller withthe white buttons. The controller in the expectation photo looked much much nicer.
Is it just me who doesn't see what the big deal is? Like every other console generation, it won't be long before custom options are available either officially or through third party options via a website or other, so if someone wants a black one with white buttons it's going to be possible anyway.
Still don't get why the hate on the white though, it looks freaking awesome to me.
Oh please, its just a photoshopped white controller, pathetic.
Not a fan of either next gen console, not sure if I like or hate the dualsense aesthetics but maybe it truly feels great- the Xbox is just more of the same which is solid but not revolutionary. Was truly hoping they'd make back buttons standard so there's little need to remove your thumbs from the sticks in fast paced games. Ended up getting the Razer Wolverine Ultimate controller recently for my PC, still waiting for it to arrive but man I love some of the ideas they shoved onto that thing- clicky mouse-like buttons all over as opposed to the traditional mushy/springy buttons, the back 4 back triggers, the 2 hair pin locks & the 2 extra bumpers next to the standard triggers. Was considering the Razer Raisu but Sony's stance against PS4 controllers for PS5 cemented that choice for me- at least with the Wolverine if I get an XsX, it'll be compatible.
Now please leak a PS5 all black console and all black controller so that I can breathe a sigh of relief knowing I won’t be stuck with white come this holiday season. Otherwise I guess white it is.
I would have loved back lit buttons.
fingers crossed ¡¡ i dont care about the white buttons. it looks great I WANT MY BLACK DUALSENSE ¡¡¡
I thought unknown sources were not allowed on here? I went to post this yesterday https://www.psu.com/news/bl... and noticed that it had no source named, so didnt bother, that is the rules, isnt it?
This doesn't look like a real consumer release. They'd invert the colours. So, where it's currently white on the controller they'll make it black, and most likely swap the black strips with white as well. That would make sense on top of hust making the whole thing black from top to bottom.
Can we please just get all black. I don't need all the hand grime I have nightmares about every time I hand my 6 year old a controller to be visible.
