On November 22nd, we announced that Sony was patenting removable covers for PS5, anticipating the possible arrival of new colors for the next-gen console. Today, just three weeks later, the Japanese giant officially presented the new “Console Covers,” available in five colors starting from January 2022 together with DualSense.
The new PS5 covers can be installed both on digital consoles and on those with an optical reader and will be available starting from January 2022. Remove the standard white one and insert the new multicolored faceplates to change the cover. The proposed colors are five: Midnight Black, Cosmic Red, Nova Pink, Starlight Blue, and Galactic Purple, the first two coming in January and the other three coming out by June 2022. The new line of colors is called “Galaxy Collection. “
In addition to the console covers, three new colors have been announced for DualSense: Nova Pink, Starlight Blue, and Galactic Purple, part of the same collection. We remind you that the DualSense Midnight Black and Cosmic Red have already been on the market for several months, and more precisely since last May, so Sony’s willingness to continue to offer the same colors on consoles and controllers is clear. Below are the presentation videos.
The Galaxy Collection could be the first of many collections coming out in the future. Furthermore, the fact that the cover is interchangeable opens up the possibility of seeing more complex faceplates in the future, perhaps customized with motifs inspired by the great PlayStation exclusives such as Horizon and God of War. The price has not been announced at the moment.
