When Sony first revealed the sci-fi-inspired design of the PlayStation 5, its future owners split into two camps: those who loved the minimalist black-and-white color scheme and sleek curves, and those who wished Microsoft was in charge of the console’s design. Regardless of which of the two camps you belong to, you can now make your PlayStation 5 a bit more exciting by pre-ordering two new DualSense controllers — Midnight Black and Cosmic Red.
Well, the controllers are functionally identical to the standard PS5 DualSense controller, but their colors are different. The Midnight Black controller features two subtly different shades of black with light grey, while the Cosmic Red controller offers a striking black and red that should remind you of the shades of red found throughout the cosmos.
Here’s what these hot new Midnight Black and Cosmic Red DualSense controllers will look like:
Where To Pre-Order The New DualSense Controllers?
According to Sony, the two new DualSense controllers will be available at participating retailers globally starting next month for $69.99, with the exact date varying from location to location.
If you would like to avoid waiting in line and possibly leaving with empty hands (and who wouldn’t with the novel coronavirus pandemic still stretching the capacity of hospitals in many countries around the world), you can pre-order the controllers online at:
If you would like to receive your new DualSense controller as soon as possible, then pre-ordering it from PlayStation Direct is your best option since it ships approximately a week ahead of other retailers, on June 11th.
With the release of the new color schemes, PlayStation 5 owners finally get to enjoy additional customization options beyond Dbrand’s Darkplates and other third-party accessories, making it easier for them to ensure that their video gaming console matches their personal style.
Matchmaking App Hawaya Lets Users Connect Based On Lifestyle Choices
Hawaya currently operates in 12 new countries, including Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, UAE, France, Germany, UK, Malaysia, Indonesia, the United States, and Canada.
Finding love is not easy, especially for singles in the Middle East, where conservative cultural norms don’t approve of any but the most traditional forms of matchmaking, which don’t seem all that appealing to many members of younger generations. But it’s not like young men and women in the Middle East are without modern options when it comes to finding the partner of their dreams. Hawaya, a Cairo-born matchmaking app, has recently celebrated 4 million users, and it’s now rolling out a feature that has the potential to expand its userbase even further: the ability to connect based on lifestyle choices with people from other regions.
Hawaya currently operates in 12 new countries, including Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, UAE, France, Germany, UK, Malaysia, Indonesia, the United States of America, and Canada. So far, it has resulted in 18,000 commitments, with 5,000 in Egypt alone.
“We’re seeing singles all over the region, women in particular, trusting in Hawaya to find their life partner more than ever before, which displays greater social acceptance for mobile matchmaking as an empowering tool for women to find their ideal life partner,” said Shaymaa Ali, Hawaya’s co-founder and Marketing Manager in the MENA region.
The new “Lifestyle Preferences” feature allows users to find their other half based on shared interests, likes, and dislikes. Users can now specify the geographic area they would like to explore, instead of always receiving matches that are located as close to them as possible.
“Through innovation, tech, and cultural respect, Hawaya prides itself to be a progressive app that aims to destigmatize the taboo of online matchmaking, and empowering women to take their time and spark a real connection with the love of their lives,” added Sameh Saleh, Hawaya’s founder and CEO.
Since the 2017 launch of Hawaya, social acceptance of online matchmaking in the MENA region has seen a measurable improvement, but there’s still a long way to go before all users of matchmaking apps like Hawaya won’t feel the need to hide their identities.
