Damn that purple is fucking heat. But I can't justify another controller when my 2 are working just fine ..

Have you considered hitting one of them with a hammer?

ID: hsok7ub

I smashed mine with a hammer on your recommendation. The haptic feedback on this hammer was unreal, I've decided to sell my PS5 and become a handy man.

Same here. Already have the white controller and the red, and I never use my white anymore since I usually only ever use one controller.

ID: hso6nv8

Same here. I'm also struggling to think of games to play with 3 players beyond Overcooked which, admittedly, I would totally play again.

ID: hsojxwe

Playing DIRT5, I feel like I need two controllers even playing single player. It's pretty much full time rumbling, so I have to swap them fairly often.

ID: hsmt3jr

Send em both to me n buy 2 new ones

ID: hsn0nks

This is my situation, have the one that came with ps5 and got second at my last brithday. Now there is this one I want and do not need...

(Only two of us in the house and about 4-5 ps4 controllers I can use for guests atm since ps5 only party games are non existent)

Yea, I LOVE the purple. Purple is my fav color. But I also know I'll grab any kind of pro-controller if they ever release that. And I still have another back-up controller sitting in the box if anything happens to my current one.

Lsu alum here. Waiting on my purple controller to arrive today. I was about to buy a skin for the remote until I stumbled across the purple pre-order. Fortunately I have a black one I bought only a week ago I'm going to return to GameStop soon as my purple one arrives. The black on black with everything black is just way too black. I hate how they removed the different color shape buttons and the PS button black on black I always accidentally hit mid combat.

My blue controller just arrived from Amazon. Love it! Same shade of blue as the the Berry Blue Dualshock 4!

5 : Anonymous2022/01/14 17:00 ID: hsne8wz

Loving that purple. Reminds me of a GameCube controller. I already have two PS5 controllers, but I'm considering picking this one up as a dedicated controller for my computer.

ID: hsomwku

I pre-ordered a purple and it should arrive today. Fortunately my second controller (black) was just purchased a week ago from GameStop. Soon as my new one arrives I'm going back to GameStop for return. To be fair, I just got my PlayStation a week ago as well so there's that. There's so many things that are new to me in this past week lol.

Of course it’s the exclusive one and not on Amazon yet. Those bastards know what they have.

ID: hsnfkps

It says it'll be available elsewhere on 2/11 so hopefully in a month it'll be on Amazon

7 : Anonymous2022/01/14 13:25 ID: hsmisjt

when should it be available in Amazon? PS doesnt ship to Puerto Rico

ID: hsmme13

iirc then general release is February 10th (not entirely sure though).

ID: hsmu7wv

The official blog announcing the controllers only says "January 2022." My local GameStop said their warehouse expects the purple one in stock on January 21.

I would just keep an eye out for it to pop up on Amazon, maybe set a reminder or use an extension to monitor whether it's in stock

Got my Nova Pink one today and it's awesome

ID: hsouzyo

Still waiting for UPS to deliver my Galactic Purple today, but I don't think its coming. It's not even showing being out for delivery.

ID: hspc950

Same here. So much for "Release Day Delivery" right?

9 : Anonymous2022/01/14 12:49 ID: hsmeoqe

It's been available, mine is arriving today

ID: hsmhjpr

I think it may have been up for preorder for a bit, but then it was Sold Out. Today is the official "release date" for the controller and it's back in stock, so just throwing it out there for those who might want it!

ID: hsmr7sh

Oh damn they sold out? Glad I got my order in early then.

Arriving today. Haven't had a purple controller since Gamecube.

Additionally, I'll now have enough controllers for It Takes Two.

ID: hsmkasy

Ahh gotcha, did not know it was sold out

ID: hsna038

Thanks for posting, I was upset when I didn’t preorder in time

ID: hsmhsn8

Mine too!

10 : Anonymous2022/01/14 16:52 ID: hsncvib

Thank you for posting. It was sold out last time I looked. I was able to place an order.

11 : Anonymous2022/01/14 17:32 ID: hsnjbu0

I got my shipment notice yesterday. Its my wifes late birthday gift.

12 : Anonymous2022/01/14 21:30 ID: hsokbp3

Glad I waited on my 2nd controller, just ordered. Thanks OP!

13 : Anonymous2022/01/14 23:02 ID: hsoxz70

I just got mine in and holy shit the color is even better in person. If you’re on the fence, DO IT!

14 : Anonymous2022/01/14 14:08 ID: hsmodwb

I really want to order a purple, but I already have 3 working controllers so I can’t justify it 🙁

ID: hsn1yt8

Im just waiting for a purple faceplate. I cant justify a new controller when i have 2, i bought one just before the new colours were announced 🙁

ID: hsn2yl3

I’m leaning towards black plates, pretty sure my girlfriend is getting purple, we might even mix and match haha. I ended up with a second controller from Christmas 2020, then they released the black controller and I had to get one, so yeah can’t justify a 4th just for the colour lol.

15 : Anonymous2022/01/14 15:05 ID: hsmwjnj

Man I saw they were sold out yesterday so I bought one on Amazon lol. Oh well!

16 : Anonymous2022/01/14 16:00 ID: hsn4r2w

Thanks for the reminder. Just ordered a purple Series X controller from design lab last week and wanted to grab this to have a nice little matching set.

Now I’ll definitely need the purple plates as well once they’re available.

I am loving this controller. The left joystick started drifting after excessive clicking in and holding to run in several games. I got a free replacement black one which is also beautiful. My duelshock 4 never broke. I still have it from the first generation ps4 just has a bit worn down rubber on the left stick. In all these duel sense are great with the colors. All the features like the mic/speaker are really great and usb c is amazing cause it cant accidently become unplugged via the 2 notch in micro usb which i still like but c is better. How many colors total are there. I have seen l.white.and this one. Any others? Or future colors?

Its fucking ugly

19 : Anonymous2022/01/14 17:17 ID: hsngtlm

I don’t really find this controller attractive to be honest. I much prefer the black and red controllers.

ID: hsnp3cv

Check out some video impressions before forming an opinion just yet. The purple in the linked PS Direct store doesn't look the same as the true look in person. Geoff Keighley has some stuff on Twitter

ID: hsnt5td

Maybe that’s what it is. It just seem too purple for me. I probably wouldn’t buy it anyway as I just don’t care for the color purple.

20 : Anonymous2022/01/14 15:32 ID: hsn0hg0

Still salty I can’t buy the pink face plates

ID: hsnnwzi

They said the three new controller colors will have matching plates coming later this year.

ID: hsnowxu

I was under the impression they were already available for preorder but not enough and I missed out

21 : Anonymous2022/01/14 21:09 ID: hsogysg

I'll trade in a white one when they come to gamestop.

22 : Anonymous2022/01/14 21:11 ID: hsohc6a

If only it was Nintendos atomic purple. I'd buy that in a heart beat

23 : Anonymous2022/01/14 23:13 ID: hsozmlk

Blue is the way.

25 : Anonymous2022/01/15 00:48 ID: hspcms4

When does it release for other retailers? I don’t have the PS credit card XD

26 : Anonymous2022/01/15 03:14 ID: hspvodr

I just got the blue one, it's so nice

27 : Anonymous2022/01/15 08:42 ID: hsqsmy5

I ordered the starlight blue yesterday, and I got a shipping delay earlier lol

Really regret buying 4 controllers day one fml

29 : Anonymous2022/01/14 14:51 ID: hsmudns

Have they mentioned any changes to the actual build of it? Anything to fix the joystick drift?
