Three new Crystal Dualshock controllers revealed

Hardware News PlayStation

Three new Crystal Dualshock controllers are joining the official PlayStation range. Available October 17 the controllers come in red, white and blue.

It’s not the first time PlayStation have released a special edition crystal edition of the Dualshock – a simple white crystal controller was released last year. These new editions are slightly different though, the colour aside, the controllers feature a redesigned touchpad that “reveals the light bar from above to provide in-game cues, such as your health status”.

As with most releases, there are some caveats – the Crystal range isn’t available in Russia and the red and blue controllers aren’t available in the UK – they give with one hand, take away with the other.

I've been gaming for longer than I care to remember and spent four years writing for another XCN website leading a 10 strong team. Now I'm in charge of TiX alongside Dave Moran – I hope you enjoy what we do!
