One of the highlights of the PlayStation 5 has been its design.
It is classy, stylish and looks vastly different from the kind of design other PlayStation consoles had. When PlayStation was officially revealed, a large number of people were surprised to see its default color and the Dual Sense controller it came with. On social media, many fans expressed their wish for Sony to release the console in different colors. PlayStation took their wishes very seriously and fulfilled them shortly after the official launch of the console.
In December 2021, Sony revealed new colors for PlayStation 5 and Dual Sense controller. Though PS5 is not a custom-designed console, the owners or users can switch the faceplate of the system to lend it a new look. Under the PS5 Console Covers category, Sony revealed five new colors. Two of these colors, Cosmic Red and Midnight Black, were launched in January 2022. As per Sony, the rest of the colors will be launched in the first half of this year. Now, fans have also been given a release window for the faceplates.
Next month, PS5 console covers will be launched in multiple colors like Starlight Blue, Nova Pink and Galactic Purple. If you own a PS5 and are based in the United States, United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Belgium, you will get early access to these covers from June 17. Customers, who live in any of these areas, can visit the PlayStation Direct website to order a cover for themselves.
Sony has said that getting the white cover replaced is a simple and hassle-free process. A user just needs to remove the original cover and install a new cover in its place. Those who wish to study the process of removing or replacing the cover elaborately should see the PS5 teardown video. One also observes that the covers for the standard and digital editions of PS5 are different.
Though the Dual Sense Controller has been made available to users in the same colors, it followed a different release schedule. While Cosmic Red and Midnight Black were released in June 2021, Galactic Purple, Starlight Blue and Nova Pink received a launch in January 2022. Some of the colors have arrived with improved parts so that the possibility of stick drift is avoided. The good news for fans is that some of the older Dual Sense colors have also been launched in newer and improved versions.
