To give some more insight into the design of the new DualSenses, the PS Blog spoke to Leo Cardoso from PlayStation's design team. He said:

“Our goal is to always find designs that will surprise and entice our fans, and these new colors are the result of an extensive selection process. We wanted the new controller colors to complement each other, as well as the original DualSense wireless controller and PS5 console, so we designed the colors around the theme of ‘galaxy’ as it felt like a natural progression from the original PS5 and accessories designs.”

Finally, keep your eyes on the PlayStation Blog because they're going to be releasing a deep dive into Returnal's robust haptic feedback and adaptive trigger support.
