If you thought the black DualShock 4 controller that will ship with the PlayStation 4 was a tad boring, you’ll be glad to know that Sony are releasing “Magma Red” and “Wave Blue” colour variants that will set you back €59 each.
If you’d prefer more colours, Sony do call these two “the first color variations” so I think we can expect more further down the line.
It’s just a pity that there are no matching colours for the PS4 itself as the red and blue on the controllers are simply gorgeous.
