We knew it was going to happen but Sony has finally announced its own lineup of custom PS5 console covers which are set to arrive in January 2022. In addition, the company is releasing a range of new DualSense controllers to match all five of the new PS5 console covers.
Sony says the five available in the first half of 2022 will include Nova Pink, Starlight Blue, Galactic Purple, Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. All five will have a DualSense controller variation for sale too.
Sony already has a Midnight Black and Cosmic Red DualSense controller on the market so the PS5 console covers are new here. However, users can also pick up the other three new DualSense controllers while they are at it.
Sony says the new PS5 console covers are easy to use. Gamers need to simply remove their original white PS5 console covers and click the new ones into place. The covers come in Disc Edition and Digital Edition versions so you’ll need to buy the shape for the console you have.
Unfortunately, these new PS5 console covers are all launching in different waves. Both the Midnight Black and Cosmic Red PS5 console covers will be available starting in January in the following regions: USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Korea, and the Philippines. No sign of SA just yet.
The Nova Pink, Galactic Purple, and Starlight Blue PS5 console covers are expected to launch in the first half of 2022. As for the DualSense controller variants, these will also vary depending on your region. Sony says users should check with their local stores for pricing and availability.
We will confirm what models of the PS5 console covers and DualSense controllers will come to South Africa as soon as we get confirmation. In the meantime, Sony has listed the Cosmic Red and Midnight Black PS5 console covers for $54,99 in the US. It should give you a rough estimate that you’ll pay at least R1100 + for these shells.
