DualShock 4 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

There are some absolutely awesome new DualShock 4 controllers on the way, but whether you can buy them will depend where you live. The full set – available in Asia from 11th October – includes Crystal (which is already out in some territories), Crystal Red, Crystal Blue, Steel Black (again, already out in some territories), and Midnight Blue.

Now, the range of new Crystal controllers – which are stunning in our humble opinion – are set to release in Europe on 18th October. There is a catch, however: Crystal Red and Crystal Blue will not launch in the UK. We’re going to blame Brexit for this tragedy, because why else wouldn’t we be allowed nice things?

There’s also no word on North America at the time of typing, but we’ll try and chase it up and see if there are any plans to bring these to the United States and Canada. Sony’s been releasing some pretty bloody terrible custom DualShock 4s lately, so it’s great to see that it's still able to put something pretty together.

Update: We have news of North America: the controllers will be available this month. But there's a catch: you'll only be able to get the Crystal controller at GameStop (or EB Games in Canada), the Crystal Red at Best Buy, and the Crystal Blue at Wal-Mart.
