Updated Magma Red DualShock 4 now available in North America

The updated Magma Red DualShock 4 has been released in the North American region. If you are interested, you can purchase the new PlayStation 4 controller with this link on Amazon. You can also check out several photos of the Magma Red gamepad with our media gallery located just below this paragraph.

As you can see above, the new version uses a two-tone red color scheme (the older iteration uses a Magma Red color for the front shell and Jet Black for the back shell).

The updated gamepad also has some functionality improvements. One of which is that there is a small light strip on the top of the touch pad. This will allow the controller to be easier to track via the PlayStation Camera. Furthermore, the user will no longer have to turn their pad around in order to check the light indicator.

The other major change is that the controller can now be connected directly via USB. Previously, the USB port was only used to recharge and sync the pad as the button inputs are transferred wireless via Bluetooth. With the new release, however, players can change the setting so that the inputs will be transferred via USB.

So, if you are looking for a new PS4 controller, you might want to check out the updated Magma Red DualShock 4.
