Sony have revealed their plans to launch two new PS4 controllers that probably won’t be sticking around for long.

Microsoft confirmed years ago that there is plenty of market for special controllers, and now new ones are being released for PlayStation 4 fans.

The two new Special Edition Dualshock 4 wireless controllers will be available across the region from March 7.

The new PS4 designs will be available in Europe and North America, and are called Steel Black and Midnight Blue Dualshock 4.

There apparently will only be available in limited supply, meaning those who are serious about getting one will need to be ready.

Midnight Blue is an entirely new colour for the PS4 Dualshock 4, while the Steel Black has been seen before.

“Some of you may remember the popular metallic design from 2016,” Sony explains.

“Now it’s back and like all new Dualshock 4 controllers, features a redesigned touchpad and offers direct USB as well as wireless control options.

“We’re happy to announce that two new Special Edition Dualshock 4 wireless controllers will be available across the region from 7th March.”

Pricing on the new controllers have not been confirmed by Sony for Europe, although we do know that they will be sold for around $65 in the United States.

The new PS4 designs can also be pre-ordered in the US now, while fans will have to wait in the UK.

Sony recently revealed a new PS4 Pro design for launch in the United States, as a special launch for the new Monster Hunter World game.

This came with a special custom Dualshock 4 controller, and is available to view in the gallery above.

Fans had been hoping for something like this to happen for Sony’s next big release, Shadow of The Colossus.

But while you could’ve expected to have a pretty nifty design, Sony have not yet confirmed any such plans.

The Shadow of the Colossus February 9 release date is closing in and features fresh visuals and improved controls.

It follows news that Sony has officially announced the February 2018 PlayStation Plus free games lineup.

Confirming earlier reports, the free PS4 games include Knack and Rime, while Starblood Arena remains a PSVR bonus offering.

Spelunker HD and Mugen Souls Z are available on PS3, while Exiles End and Grand Kingdom join PlayStation Vita.

The new PS Plus games will be available to download on February 6 at around midday. Check out the gallery below for a closer look at the new PlayStation Plus games.
