Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced new translucent-themed DualShock 4 controllers for the worldwide market.

The fan-favorite translucent colors are limited in quantities and come in the following colors: Crystal, Blue Crystal and Red Crystal. They’re reversed in comparison to older translucent style, meaning the top is translucent and the bottom is a solid color.

Here’s some beauty shots of each color:

The various colored-controllers will be available at certain retailers, including: Crystal at GameStop (EB Games in Canada), Blue Crystal at Walmart and Red Crystal at Best Buy. Each controller will cost $65 in the US and will arrive sometime this month in both North America and Europe.
