Ever since the PS5 was released, console owners have bought custom faceplates from third-party brands. That’s about to change as Sony has finally introduced its own official console covers for both the regular PlayStation 5 console and the Digital Edition variant.
Sony has confirmed that the new custom covers will come in Midnight Black, Cosmic Red, Nova Pink, Starlight Blue, and Galactic Purple colors. The company will first be releasing the black custom covers in January 2022 and other colors to be released later in the first half of the year.
Sony also added new colors to the DualSense controller line-up. Along with the Midnight Black and Cosmic Red colors, the DualSense will also be available in Nova Pink, Starlight Blue, and Galactic Purple colors. Sony ensured that customers will now have matching colors for both the DualSense controller and the console covers.
The custom covers of the PS5 will be priced at 54.99 dollars (Approx. 200 AED). It’s not surprising that Sony announced the new custom faceplates. After all, they have been busy in legal battles against third-party brands that sold non-official black faceplates. DBrand was forced to withdraw its product. It didn’t take long for DBrand to release a newly designed faceplate to mock and challenge Sony’s legal team.
