Red and Blue PS4 controllers by year end

#1 Posted by Krakn3Dfx (2490 posts) -

Looks like Sony will be shipping the PS4 controller in a red or blue variation sometime later this year. Went ahead and cancelled my black extra controller, gonna be rockin' that red one for sure.

I for one never tire of your constant thread crapping.

They look cool. Guess I'll get one of each color maybe another black for the fourth or something.

Yup, and since you're the biggest troll on the entire giantbomb forums, I won't take too much offense.

Oh and I've also found myself on the neogaf forum a handful of times and seen your posts there as well. Your reputation is well earned.

The blue one looks pretty snazzy.

I've always had a blue controller with my PS's so I'll be picking one of those up :D

I would love if they made a Jet Black one....*crickets*

I'd really honestly have a white one. I had a blue DS3, so now I want to try a new color. I would even love if they made really good artistic game themed controllers. Like change the triangle, circle, x, and square into the game's theme. That would be neat in my opinion.

I like the colors, but I really don't think that two-tone design looks good at all. It works with the standard black controller because the two tones are so similar, but these just look off to me. Same issue I had with the 3DS XL. They don't look like "fisher price toys" or any of that bullshit, I just think they look weird.

Blue looks alright, but I think darker shades of each color would match the touchscreen more evenly.

I have the red PS3 controller and while at 1st I thought it looked cool I'm starting to see that it doesnt. Black is better to me, looks more premium I guess, The other colors look like some kinda ripoffs I guess.

Got that Blue one preordered, though, not sure if there are any launch games that will utilise offline multiplayer?

#22 Posted by probablytuna (3659 posts) -

While I prefer the red one, I think the blue one works better because it matches blue light that turns on at the front of the controller. I'm guessing that light changes depending on how many players there are though so maybe that's a non-issue.

I wish they would make a blue PS4, I am definitely getting a blue controller.

#24 Posted by Venatio (4491 posts) -

I'm getting that red controller

#25 Posted by joey (984 posts) -

I want the trend of translucent plastic in controllers to return.

I feel that even the black PS4 controller looks like a rubbish third party controller. I'm sure it feels great - everyone is saying that and I have no reason to doubt them, but it just looks off. And adding these colours just makes it look worse.

Not that the looks of the controller are the most important thing or anything, but it still just looks wrong.

Those look bad. Don't like 'em. My very favorite controllers are those translucent blue, red & green dualshocks. I really don't care for this tread of making everything look so... tacky.

PS3 controller not compatible... But who needs that when you can pay $50 for a new one that is blue!

Sony cares about gamers!

#30 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5490 posts) -

I don't know. I kind of like the blue one. I'll never buy it though, since I'll only ever need the one out of the box.

#31 Posted by chrissedoff (2097 posts) -

I don't know when I'll get a Playstation 4, but I'm buying one of each of those controllers when I do.

I want a deep purple option. Purple always gets the shaft in these things.

#34 Posted by Rhombus_Of_Terror (2102 posts) -

I want a see-through version, I had a DS2 just like it.

#35 Posted by TechHits (1378 posts) -

I hope they dont have the same light bleeding problems the red ps3 controllers had.

#36 Posted by Nightriff (5082 posts) -

Any news on when these are coming to the US?

#37 Edited by CynicalBuzzard (240 posts) -

I am definitely getting the blue controller for my PS4!

#38 Posted by RonGalaxy (3166 posts) -

Definitely getting the red controller.
