Sony has announced a new set of DualShock 4 controllers for the PlayStation 4. The new controllers are inspired by the translucent controllers released years ago for the PlayStation 1. Almost two decades later, Sony has decided to do a throwback to its original console and launched similarly translucent controllers for the PlayStation 4.

Available in three color variants, all of the new DualShock 4 controllers are semi-transparent. Nothing else is different about these controllers with the exception of the cosmetic changes.

Sony had initially announced these controllers for European markets and hadn’t said anything about a U.S. launch. The company later confirmed that this new range of DualShock 4 controllers will also be available to customers in the United States.

The new controllers can be purchased in Crystal, Blue Crystal, and Red Crystal color options. Customers in the United States should keep in mind that the Crystal color option is exclusive to GameStop, Red Crystal is exclusive to Best Buy, and Blue Crystal will be exclusive to Walmart.

Sony is charging $65 a piece for these new controllers and they’re going to be released for customers in the United States later this month. Sony hasn’t confirmed at this point in time if the new range will be made available in more markets across the globe.
