DualSense PS5 Controller Colours Guide

What are all the DualSense PS5 controller colours? As with all previous PlayStation consoles, the PS5's official controller comes in a variety of different colour schemes. Sony usually spreads these out over the course of a generation, but we end up with a wide variety of choice in colours. If you're not a big fan of the default white and black design, you can find alternatives that are more to your tastes.

Below, we're going to show you every DualSense PS5 controller colour scheme to date and provide links to stores stocking them should you want to pick one up. Note: We'll be updating and adding to this guide over time, so keep checking back to discover more DualSense colours as they're made available.

Starlight Blue
