Following a limited edition release last year, PlayStation has announced in a blog post that translucent “Crystal” versions of its updated DualShock 4 controllers will be releasing this October.
Translucency aside, these controllers are essentially identical to the current iteration of DualShocks; these are the latest modification to Sony’s controllers which feature a redesigned touch pad on which a second light bar is located to provide players with in-game cues.
In addition to the classic Crystal version, Sony has also announced Red and Blue varieties, which are identically translucent but feature a splash of colour.
There are some regional restrictions, however; UK players aren’t getting the red or blue options and will have to settle for the classic Crystal controller, whilst players in Russia aren’t getting any translucent controllers at all.
Sony’s range of Crystal controllers launch Tuesday, October 17.
