PS5 Colored Console Covers Will Release in 2022
New PS5 console plate covers are coming in January 2022, alongside some gorgeous new DualSense controllers. One of these controllers is already available, the Cosmic Red which sits on this writer’s desk. The Official PlayStation blog revealed the first colors would be Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. These will be available in select territories in January 2022.
What Are the Colors and Prices?
At first, the Midnight Black and Cosmic Red covers will be the ones that launch first. The Midnight Black makes sense as most of the PlayStation consoles have been Midnight Black throughout history. The Cosmic Red is a deep crimson and stands out. On top of that, Nova Pink, Galactic Purple and Starlight Blue will launch sometime in the first half of 2022.
Here’s what Sony said in the blog. “The Midnight Black and Cosmic Red PS5 console covers will become available starting in January 2022 at participating retailers in the following locations: 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. The Nova Pink, Galactic Purple and Starlight Blue PS5 console covers will also launch in these locations during the first half of 2022. We plan to launch the PS5 console covers in additional territories during the year, and we’ll announce those details as they become available.”
The prices haven’t been made available, but a PlayStation Direct revealed by Nibel on Twitter shows a price of $55. The colors are incredibly sharp, and it’s easy enough to remove the default white plates and replace them with these. The “select territories” appear to be the US, UK, France and Germany will have a few of these available for early access. They do seem like they’ll be cheaper than some of the third-party plates that were on the internet earlier this year.
