The 20th Anniversary DS4 Will Be Available This September

To celebrate twenty years of PlayStation in Europe the nice people are Sony have created a “very special” 20th Anniversary Edition of the Dualshock 4 Wireless Controller. What they actually mean is they’ve coloured a normal DS4 grey rather than black and put the old logo on the button, but it’s the thought that counts I guess.


The controller will also be available in North America where it will be joined by a 20th Anniversary Gold Wireless Headset, whilst Europe gets a white Wireless Stereo Headset.

  1. By then I predict the last of my left thumbstick rubber will have come off, so unless it’s extortionate, i’ll pick one up.

    • Talking of rubber on the thumb sticks… I bought a couple of black DS4s at launch with my PS4 and both sets of sticks wore on the rubbers. A few months ago I bought a new blue DS4 (I threw one of my black ones at the floor and smashed it in a rage on FIFA) and the thumb stick rubber it not showing any sign of splintering at all.

      • Yeah it was the first batch, i’m still on the original that came with the console, I don’t have any others. The battery life on it is now even worse, 6 hours of gaming i’d say.

  2. Will it still have those crappy plastic hinges on the L2/R2 triggers?

    I’m on my third DS4 now…

    • How?

      What are you doing with it, chucking it at the wall in rage? :D.

      I’m still using the one which came with my launch unit, minus the old thumb sticks.

      • Nope.

        Part of the hinge breaks, making the trigger sit at an angle so it won’t return properly. Quite a common problem apparently, had no arguments from Sony at all.

        Just got my white DS4 back last week. Tis a thing of beauty.

  3. Yup, getting one of those.

  4. I’ve got two perfectly good DS4’s but still tempted….

  5. I have three DS4s in perfect condition.

    Four seems a better number though. :)

  6. I like it. Good alternative for people who didn’t get the PS4.

    • Yep, it’s a pretty little thing for a bit of grey plastic and it’ll feel quite special for those of us who are fans of the PlayStation brand.

  7. Damn, that grey PS4 does look good but all my consoles are white (PS4/XB1/PS3) so as tempted as I am to trade in the white PS4 for a grey one, it just wouldn’t look right. Had this been available from the start, I would definitely have picked up a grey one. I’ll probably just end up getting a Grey DS4 now instead.

  8. I have 5 controllers already, 2 black ones (came with PS4) red one, white one & blue one. I can’t resist, I have to buy this I have too along with the batman one & metal gear one, please help me

    • I’ll give the Metal Gear one a good home for you, if you feel you have too many by that point ;)

  9. I find this pretty lame, given the elite controller MS just announced.
    As MS had a really good show at E3, I very much hope Sony will feel some proper competition from now on. It’s been far too easy for them this gen, and it started to show, e.g. in their Plus games. Sony can do better and I hope they soon have to.

    • Agreed. MS blew Sony out the water this E3. Very poor showing imo. Dragging out Last Guardian with no further details, showing Batman which is only out next week, barely any Morpheus and ending with a non-gaming feature that should have been there from the start.

  10. Makes you think .. I hope Sony add some serious software updates to really make use of the ps4 power . they are dragging out these simple features give us a home run #Sony
