New Alpine Green PS4 Controller Receiving Mixed Reactions After the Big Reveal

Alpine Green PS4 Dualshock Controller Officially Revealed

Just a few days ago Microsoft unveiled their brand new Phantom White Special Edition controller for the Xbox One and fans are absolutely loving it. It makes sense then, that Sony show off a dapper looking controller then too, right? Earlier today Sony revealed their newest addition to the Dualshock 4 family as the Alpine Green PS4 controller though it seems some fans are less than thrilled about it.


The upcoming controller was announced on the official PlayStation Twitter account, showing off a green and white Dualshock 4. The entire front of it, save for the buttons and surrounding markings, is an alpine green, as the name suggests, however the buttons and the back of the controller are a bold white. You can check it out in the tweet below.

As you can imagine, many took to Twitter to react and while some are more than pleased with the design, there are others that very much feel the opposite. You can check out a couple of the reactions below.

Now while the Alpine Green Dualshock 4 controller isn’t available in stores quite yet, Sony announced that they will be available on April 15th, exactly one month away. And if you’re wondering how much this special edition controller is going to set you back, it’ll be the cost of the same as other controllers at $64.99 USD. If you’re a fan of the new design it’s currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
