Crystal and Steel Black PS4 controllers coming to Europe in July

Want to see your PS4 controller's guts without voiding the warranty? Sony has announced the limited edition Crystal & Metallic range of DualShock 4 controllers will debut in Europe starting on July 11, introducing the new "Crystal" and "Steel Black" colors and reintroducing the "Gold" and "Silver" colors.

The Crystal controller comes with a frosted front plate, that outlines its innards rather than revealing them in full detail, and a white back. The Steel Black version has the same satiny finish as the Gold and Silver controllers and a standard black backing. All four controllers were first revealed at Tokyo Game Show last year.

There's no word on when or if the Crystal and Steel Black controllers will be released in the US, though there's nothing stopping you from importing one. It will work regardless of your region.
