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.
Emirates Airline To Invest $2 Billion On Major Upgrades
Emirates plans a huge retrofit on its fleet and an upgrade to the inflight experience.
Emirates Airline has just announced plans to improve its inflight experience for passengers. The carrier has budgeted $2 billion to refit the interiors of over 120 of its aircraft, aiming for a more modern aesthetic for cabins, along with better food choices, modern inflight entertainment options, and a significant service overhaul.
Emirates is well known for its premium service, so this overhaul is an ambitious decision, as many other airlines are trying their hardest to increase revenues and reduce costs.
“Emirates is flying against the grain and investing to deliver ever better experiences to our customers. Through the pandemic we’ve continued to launch new services and initiatives to ensure our customers travel with the assurance and ease, including digital initiatives to improve customer experiences on the ground. Now we’re rolling out a series of intensive programmes to take Emirates’ signature inflight experiences to the next level,” says Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline.
The investment aims to ensure Emirates stays on top form, with many of the upgrades scheduled to materialize quickly. For the physical refit, aircraft are scheduled to enter the Emirates Engineering Center in November. So what can passengers expect once work is complete? The most significant change will be to aircraft interiors, where flyers of all classes will immediately spot new flooring, paneling, and reupholstered seats.
As well as a physical overhaul, the airline plans to upgrade entertainment systems, adding a “Cinema in the Sky” experience, complete with a bespoke app. In addition, better meal choices will reflect changing dietary preferences, including a new vegan menu and a nod to sustainability — though there will remain a strong luxury vibe to the proceedings, as the company has entered an exclusive agreement to offer Dom Perignon vintage champagne on board, as well as delicacies such as Persian caviar.
Though many of the improvements may seem trivial, Emirates is hoping that along with a huge cabin overhaul, their overall flight experience will continue to make travel a pleasurable experience, elevating their service above the competition.
