A new color scheme of controllers has been released for the PlayStation 4 a few days ago, and one of these controllers is the colorful Berry Blue DualShock 4.

Most modern HDTVs available today only offer HDMI and maybe component video inputs — neither of which the PlayStation (PSX/PS1/PSOne) supports.
However, the PSX outputs RGB (red/green/blue) signals through its video output port to produce the best colors and picture quality.
