PS4 controllers come in a wide variety of colors, and some are frankly much more appealing than others.
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. The best part? All but one of them, the Blue Crystal, costs $65, so it all comes down to your preference.
- 500 Million Limited Edition
- Sunset Orange
- Berry Blue
- Metallic Copper
- Blue Camouflage
- Blue Crystal
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 that may just be the sexiest we’ve seen. It’s sold out at a few retailers, but there is still stock available if you know where to look. We’ll help you out
You can 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.
If you’re an anime fan, it’s hard to dismiss the color schemes are similar — freakishly so. But the contrast between the orange and dark blue is gorgeous, so if you’re looking for a vibrant color that pops out on your shelf, it’s hard to beat this one.
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’s no other light blue variant 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.
Penny for your thoughts? Upon first glance, you’ll note this DualShock is similar to 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 not your average gold or silver variant and luckily, it’s worth more than the penny.
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.
Sony recently announced the Blue Camouflage DualShock 4. 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 to it if Berry Blue isn’t your thing.
This and the next option have been overlooked for quite a while, but the new 500 Million Limited Edition DualShock proved that translucent is back and better than ever.
Why hide all of that cool tech on the inside? Like the other options on this list, you can buy it new for $65, although you can also get it pre-owned for $60. If Crystal is just a tad too plain, you can always snag the Blue Crystal (see below).
Admittedly not as stylish as the 500 Million Limited Edition, it’s a decent substitute considering the latter may be hard to get your hands on.
If you need a little more color in your life that the Crystal DualShock doesn’t offer, Blue’s got your back, even if it’s slightly more expensive than the other controllers on this list at $85 new. Of course, you can get it used for less.
