PlayStation 4 to get red and blue DualShock 4 controllers

Sony to offer Magma Red and Wave Blue DualShock 4 controllers at the launch of the console in Europe, and later in the year for North America.

'

Sony has announced blue and red controllers for the PlayStation 4 at Gamescom 2013.

Following the black controller designed to match the Jet Black finish of the PlayStation 4, the Magma Red and Wave Blue controllers will launch with the PlayStation 4 in Europe on November 29.

The coloured controllers will release in North America later in 2013, Sony adds. The recommended retail price for the coloured controllers is £54/€59/$59.

"The two-toned look with the vivid Magma Red and Wave Blue along with black further enhances the stylish look of the DualShock 4," said Sony said in a statement.

Sony adds that it chose red and blue because they were two of the most popular colours for PlayStation owners.

Sony will release the PlayStation 4 on November 15 in North America for $399, and on November 29 in Europe for €399/£349.

I don't care for the blue, but the red looks good. Would be better if the ends of the controllers were red instead of the black tips on the end currently.

What?! this is lame. I mean I really liked the color controller idea but these colors make it look like it was made by fisher price. I loved the ps3 one's made me buy them even when I didn't want a new controller. I got the silver and jungle green editions of the dualshock 3. I'm sure they'll come out with cooler colors later..but still.. would be nice to have something sweet at launch. O well...

I never bought a colored controller but those are quite tempting. Sadly Ill never need to buy one since all I ever need is one controller that comes with a system.

They both look dope and I definitely will be picking one up! Probably will end up going with blue seeing as how I've been rocking the red PS3 controller for a while now.

I like red. Btw, Sony should also make a white DualShock 4. I would love one in white.

I like the blue one, I just wish they chose a darker metallic shade than going for candy colors..

I've always hated Dual Shock ever since I played the first Xbox. I won't be happy about losing my Xbox One controller if I get a PS4. I most likely won't be buying one of those though even though they do look quite nice with the two tone colours.

They've had coloured controllers in the past. Black is still the default.

My old housemate has red Dual Shock 2 and 3 controllers. No doubt he will be getting the red one here too.

@Dannystaples14 You can get some Xbox inspired third party controllers for the Ps3, I imagine you'll be able to get the same for the PS4.

Yellow and black is one of the best colour combinations.
Plus, if they have red and blue, why not yellow too?
