I normally do as well though the white PS5 motif has grown on me. My main concern will be how the white plastic holds up over time. White plastic tends to yellow over time and this will potentially happen faster with a white controller that is in your hands all the time.

That Pink+Black is just phenomenal looking.

I just want a black DuelSense; I hate white electronics. I think a DualSense with matte black on the grips and touchpad (to avoid smudging) and glossy black on the “crotch” would go perfectly with a PS5 with matte black plates; both would be matte, glossy, matte.

I just came back to WoW after 7 years of not playing so it was really jarring how much focus Blizzard puts on the story now.
