PlayStation supports a wide variety of accessories, but none are as important as the DualShock 4 controller, which is a necessity if you want to game at all. Since its standard black color is rather boring and people always want options, thankfully there are over a dozen variants to spice up players' collections.

Let's be honest, some controllers just look much better than others, while some can be downright ugly. Here are several choices you may be interested in.

★ Discontinued Beauty: 500 Million Limited Edition

The 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 controller was made to commemorate 500 million PlayStation consoles sold since its release over twenty years ago. When it comes to your standard DualShock 4 controller, it doesn't get any better than this. It features a dark translucent blue casing which may just be the sexiest we've seen. It's sold out at several retailers, but there is still stock available if you know where to look.

Cool & Complimentary: Berry Blue

Staff Favorite

There's a reason I like to call it the smoothie controller. You'll be hard-pressed to find another that immediately reminds you of the beverage, whether by name or color. There are no other light blue variants when it comes to official DualShock 4s, and not everyone wants to settle for a darker shade. Berry Blue is bright, it's playful, and it stands out from the crowd.

Conductive Color: Metallic Copper

Penny for your thoughts? Upon first glance, you'll note this DualShock is reminiscent of America's most contentious coin – the penny. Do we keep it? Do we get rid of it? The arguments continue, but one thing is clear: this controller should stick around for a while. This isn't your average gold or silver variant and luckily, it's worth more than the penny.

Urban Cover: Blue Camouflage

Camouflage can be hit or miss with people's tastes, but changing up the usual green color associated with hunting can make it more appealing. Enter Sony's Blue Camouflage. When most controllers are just one or two flat colors, this is a nice change of pace, and definitely gives off a more rugged vibe if Berry Blue isn't your thing.

Anime Angle: Sunset Orange

You might call this the Goku controller. Alternatively, it could be Goku and Naruto's love child. Either way, anime fans will get a kick out of this controller. It's hard to dismiss the color schemes are similar — freakishly so. But the contrast between the orange and dark blue is gorgeous no matter your viewing interests, so if you're looking for a vibrant color that pops, it's hard to beat this one.

Clear-cut Transparency: Crystal

This and the next option have been overlooked for quite a while, but with the new 500 Million Limited Edition DualShock proving that translucent is back and better than ever it might be one to consider. Why hide all of that cool tech on the inside? If Crystal's translucent white is just a tad too plain, you can always snag the Blue Crystal.

Icy Exclusive: Blue Crystal

Admittedly not quite as stylish as the 500 Million Limited Edition, it's a decent substitute considering the latter may be harder to get your hands on. If you need a little more color in your life, which the Crystal doesn't offer, Blue's got your back. Originally a WalMart exclusive but have since sold out, for a little more you can still find them from third party retailers, or used for a little less.

Color your world

Whether you prefer the translucents like Crystal or 500 Million, the smoothie Berry Blue or if you prefer something a bit more bold like Sunset Orange, there are a number of attractive options. With Sony adding more colors all the time and discontinuing others, grab your favorite colors while you can.
