Those of you who are in the market for a new DualSense controller (they’re also pretty good for PC games) will definitely want to go for one of the newer models, as a new teardown video from YouTuber TronicsFix can reveal that they come with more benefits than just fancy new colors. According to TronicsFix’s teardown, the new Nova Pink, Starlight Blue, and Galactic Purple versions of the DualSense that debuted in January feature beefier trigger springs, something that PS5 gamers with broken L2 and R2 triggers probably wish Sony had implemented at the start for its next-generation $69.99 peripheral. The new color variants also feature some changes to the analog stick modules, but it’s unclear whether they provide any improvements to functionality.

  • DualSense Major Upgrade? 3 NEW COLORS of PS5 Controllers – Sony recently came out with 3 new colors of DualSense PS5 controllers (purple, pink, and light blue) so I bought one of each so I can check them out and see if there is anything different. I’m hoping they upgraded the analog sticks and the springs on the triggers but I won’t know until I get them apart.
