PlayStation 5 owners will soon get the opportunity to give their consoles a facelift. Coming in 2022 is a selection of brand-new console covers. The colors they come in are galaxy-inspired. There are 5 new covers: Midnight Black, Cosmic Red, Nova Pink, Starlight Blue, and Galactic Purple. Currently, PS5 consoles only come in white. Those wanting to upgrade their console’s appearance can do so by swapping out the original white covers. Switching covers is very simple. You simply remove the original covers and click the new ones into place. The new covers are available for PS5’s with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, as well as the Digital Edition. The covers will be sold separately from the consoles.
Also getting released for PS5 are some new-look DualSense wireless controllers. The colors of the controllers match those of the new covers. While Midnight Black and Cosmic Red controllers were released in June 2021, the other 3 colors will be made available in 2022.
