Darth Vader PS4 controller to be sold standalone

Star Wars fans looking to show their affection for the Dark Side will be able to pick up anew Darth Vader-themed pad for the PS4.

The black controller was originally announced as part of the Darth Vader-themed PS4 bundle, which also includes a copy of upcoming shooter Battlefront and four digital Star Wars classics – Super Star Wars, Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Jedi Starfighter and Star Wars Bounty Hunter.

Now, Sony has confirmed the special edition peripheral will also be available on its own.

It's decorated with red and blue shoulder buttons, a red D-pad, white analogue sticks and white face buttons – minus the mysteriously red Circle button.

The Star Wars logo is etched into the DualShock 4's touchpad.

The Darth Vader pad will launch the same day as Battlefront – November 19th – but a price is yet to be confirmed.

The US price is $65 (43), a mere $5 more than the standard DualShock 4's $60 RRP, so you might expect it to cost around 55 here in the UK – 5 more than the normal pad's 50 RRP.
