It's now confirmed that the Cosmic Red DualSense controller will be a bit more expensive than the standard priced PS5 controllers. Release date and new screenshots revealed, too.
Dude, of course it is. Its the Cosmic version of dualsense. Much more powerfull then the standard gamepad. Also waiting for the ultra instinct gamepad and the Hakai version!
you know what, I'll bite if there was a special Ultra Instinct controller. Like the light bar glows it.
I would buy one. Maybe first the Hakai version. Im team Vegeta!
Ill totally get the Yamacha "is dead" controller. Pretty much the controller comes with a dead battery and the thumbsticks pointing in the opposite directions.
The new colors looks fantastic.
Hopefully besides the colors, the grip feels great.
Not sure if this is a sarcastic comment or a legit one...
I'm going to assume it's because manufacturing costs are higher right now?
Jokes aside, They both look great Im two hearted about which to get. I need a second controller and held out for new colors. Last gen, the red controller was my favorite, this red looks different. Its almost violet but it might be really high quality in person especially if that explains why it costs slightly more. On the other hand, if there is a red dualsense at some point more akin to last gen’s I must have that, so Im thinking I get the black for now.
The Black one for me. looks nice
These things are like a litmus test to see how many are too hopeless to dissemble and work a can of spray paint.
Why? It would be more expensive and lesser quality the OEM.
"more expensive" How much do you think a can of spray paint costs? "and lesser quality the OEM" That's subjective to whatever you're using. There's plenty that are available for plastics.
You have to buy an additional controller if you want more than one color.
@Jin_Sakai You can just dissemble the one you already own and repaint the shell. Way cheaper.
Please explain how you would get the buttons colored to match as well? 🧐
Either do it yourself or pick up some buttons off ebay or amazon. Simple. This isn't rocket science.
saving money is a very foreign concept to these people they're so comfortable being suckers its all they know.
How many people paint their own shit. Get over yourself. Paint will wear off, too. And it will change the texture of the shell.
Quite a few do. There's an entire DIY scene. You'd know that if you weren't completely ignorant.
@Giblet. You still haven't answered my question above.
It's only $5 more... I was thinking it would be like some of the special editions I have gotten which was closer to $100-150 ea. $5 i can handle.
Seriously is that it? "More expensive" for $5 lol... shit I guess I wont have a coffee that day
I think the point for some is that it should just be the same price. Why does it need to cost more? Controllers are already a ripoff.
question is why is it more though?
Cause metallic red dye costs more than black I would assume.
I don't often really care for red controllers... I don't think I've ever seen one I actually liked. This one is a brilliant shade of red though. I honestly think it's the best looking color out of the three currently available.
some notable red controllers would be the Res evil 5 360 one, gears of war 3 360, god of war ascension DS3, crimson omen gears 4 xbo and who could forget the spider-man DS4.
Xbox control colours stay on point, that's one thing I know.
Its definitely a far more refined/classy red. Im right there with you - where I hate "gaudy" colors, but this actually looks really sharp.
The red ps4 controller I REALLY liked. Not the newer version, but the one that had the contrast with the red and black.
looking at it I don't even see red. I see a deep pink personally. Nothing wrong with it though, just my 2 cents.
kind of like that volcano shadow xbox one controller
Why is it more expensive? Isn't it just a different colour?
It seems logical that they're making the standard controller shells in much greater volume. If you make less, the per unit price increases.
That hasn't been an issue before with other controllers. It's one thing when it's a special edition controller, where the whole controller is specially customized. This is just a different colour, is it not?
MS has been able to make about 5 different colors for the series ones and they are all the same price. I have no idea why this one is only $5 more but maybe sony has their reasons. I really couldnt care less as I am just stoked they got some new colors coming.
Not sure why u got disagrees for stating a FACT...oh wait I know why
I mean I care, it's still money at the end of the day.
This is just a different color, is it not? It could also have something to do with he face buttons being to be created separately. Idk the process behind it but i don't think its as easy as just painting the ones they already have made so that could create additional cost like Sully stated. "That hasn't been an issue before with other controllers." Face buttons on those also didn't have any changes to them requiring a lesser process than these maybe. There are just my thoughts and not facts.
$5 more and still no back buttons. Disappointing.
Sony needs to release faceplates in this color red... I'd buy that and the controller. I am digging it a lot
Just preordered the Cosmic Red, looks beautiful, can’t wait 😁
Uphhhh I liiike
Ahh much like the Sunset Orange Dual Shock 4. That thing is still $94 on Amazon.
Wait..what. $5 more for just a black version of their controller.
No it’s for the red one Did you not read the headline?
I saw a listing for both with increased price. That aside. My question remains the same. The red controller shouldn't be more. It's not a custom controlller. Absolutely no reason for the price hike.
Very pricey for a standard controller
I'm waiting on a heavy sale for this one. Like the color tho!
Why does it cost more?
Different colors require more supplies to create them compare to black. You don't see cars having the same price across the board for every color. Some colors have an additional cost to them so I don't see why that cant apply here as well considering its only $5 more. If it was $10+ more then I would see a problem here.
usually that's because these custom colours have additional things to them. Metallic, Pearlescent, etc. Red Paint doesn't cost more than black paint. It's just color at the end of the day. It's not like plastic comes as white or black to start. It's plastic.
It's probably the control being more to make than the average control. So they're trying to eat some extra profit because really people should be fine with black or white. Red at that point is just being nice I guess in their eyes. So they can put a premium. After Nintendo sold the Switch Pro control which is less than a PS4 control for $10 more, I knew this controller price issue was about to begin smh
It would be cool if the PS5 came in different colors.
I preordered the black. It’s more classic and I do not like that shade of red tbh.
5 quid more isnt all too bad. i thought it was like 20 more lol.
MS charges $5-$10 more for their special colored controllers too so I don't really see this as an issue if $5 is the highest they go with the price increase.
Every Xbox controller that is simply a single colour are the same price. Some of their patterned ones are $5 more.
No, the Patterned ones are $10 more and the two tones are $5 more. Since this is 2 tone as well with the black and red it makes sense to only be $5.
On similar news, water is wet. They've always been more expensive than the vanilla version
Why is anyone acting shocked? Both MS and Sony did this with controllers the entirety of last generation and even the generation before. Standard controllers were the base price and colored controllers that were five bucks more. Is there a reason for it, I mean probably somewhere in the back end when placing orders for new colors but realistically no. Will they continue to do it because they know people will buy them, yup. That red looks awesome too.
I hope Sony has some different color faceplates coming because this white one is ugly af.
How greedy Sony!Jim Ryan vision!
MS does the same thing with their controllers. 🤦🏻♂️ Some are $65 instead of $60 and some are $70 instead of $60.
they do it with weird patterned ones, different colors cost the same though.
I have 2 xtra ps5 white controllers but iwill get one of each *Red/Black* day UNO if i m lucky
