Sony decided to drop images of the next iteration in its DualShock controller lineup on this fine Tuesday afternoon. The DualSense, as it is officially called, will be the first of Sony's controllers to launch with a two-toned design instead of a singular color. It is set to release alongside the PlayStation 5.

This time around it will be white and black split between different sections, and I have to say I'm a big fan of the design, especially when it's accentuated by the new placement of the light bars aside the touchpad. But that hasn't stopped people from reimagining it is some other colors. So let's take a look at them.

Twitter user @orcastraw imagines a controller that replaces the black sections with a light pink, and it's pretty damn stylish.

Other like this ResetEra user decided to see what the DualSense would look like with a more traditional color scheme, complete with a fully-colored PlayStation button.

@thefleshmonk on Twitter gave us a look at what the DualSense could look like if it were yellow, pink, black, and a light blue. These ones are a bit too bold for my tastes.

@PS4_Trophies took to Twitter to come up with a less vibrant color scheme than the one above, while still spicing it up with some more color.

Reddit user Doomster78666 went for the gradient approach so the colors go from darker to lighter as they mask their way to the top of the DualSense.

Another Reddit user, H4WK1NG, made nine different color mockups with some lighter color tones than the vibrant ones others are making.

@isaparrot decided to swap the black and white sections and it looks just as nice.

What do you think?

What I'm seeing is that a lot of people are swapping out the white sections for other colors and leaving the black section intact. I personally like it more when the black section is swapped out for another color and the white stays, like the first pink controller on where.

How do you guys feel about these mockups? Do you like the original black and white color scheme? Let us know in the comments.

  • Love the alternatives people are coming up with. Im assuming Sony went with two tone, especially by adding the black portion, to make the controller appear smaller. Ironically, I prefer the full black design.
  • Wtf it's just the default color.... It's not like other color options won't come out. It's happened in the other consoles. Chill out......... Besides I love the minimal color design. White and subtle blue with black is kool.
  • Hopefully it's not too big or heavy and the battery life is better.
  • Dont care too much for the design. Looks like a cheap plastic toy.
  • I hope they go the Xbox route and offer a site where you can design a custom one. It's a nice touch, and really not that crazy expensive.
