Sony to Release PS5 Covers in 2022

Posted on December 13, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in PlayStation with 3 Comments

After spending the past year preventing third parties from doing so, Sony will release PlayStation 5 console covers in 2022. Or, what some might call faceplates.

“We are pleased to reveal the newest colors to join the PS5 family of color accessory offerings: Nova Pink, Starlight Blue, and Galactic Purple,” Sony senior director Isabelle Tomatis writes in the announcement post. “Adding to the previously released Cosmic Red and Midnight Black DualSense wireless controller colors, the latest galaxy-inspired colors will launch globally starting in January 2022 at participating retailers.”

To be clear, Sony never offered alternate console covers before; these are the first. But it did offer a few color options on its PS5 wireless controllers. With these new colors, fans will be able to finally customize their console in addition to their controllers. (Or, buy a new controller, I guess.)

The console covers will be available in Midnight Black, Cosmic Red, Nova Pink, Starlight Blue, and Galactic Purple, and they will cost $55. They begin shipping in January.
