Officially, the PS5 controller is only available in a white edition, which should change in the coming months or years. But at least one third-party manufacturer is now selling a modified version that comes closer to the standard controllers of the previous consoles.
The company CMP Shells, which specializes in the customization of consoles, added a black PlayStation 5 controller to their range.
The catch: with the black color, the price was almost doubled.
Controller in two versions
CMP’s matte black DualSense controller with retro logo costs no less than $ 115, while the matte black DualSense controller with classic PlayStation button set and retro logo costs as much as 125 US dollars.
According to CMP, both products will be delivered in around two to three weeks. If your coffers are empty: Alternatively, Decor Evolve sells the PS5 gamepad covers for $ 9.99 each. You can choose between the color versions gold, rose gold, silver, light blue, steel gray, orange, midnight blue, purple, blue and red.
As mentioned at the beginning: Officially, Sony is initially only selling the DualSense controller in the announced white version.
The same applies to the console itself, which can, however, be modified with faceplates as soon as they reach retail. Here too, CMP is one of the pioneers.
The company initially chose the name PlateStation5 last year, before Sony stepped in and encouraged the peripheral manufacturer to change the name and withdraw a planned series of individual PS5 faceplates.
The company returned as CMP Shells in January 2021 and has been offering black faceplates for the PS5 disc and digital edition consoles ever since.
