Sony finally announced official covers for the PS5 late last year, giving you the option to customize the color of your console’s faceplate. In a post on the official PlayStation Blog, five new PS5 covers have been revealed for the standard console and the digital edition that can brighten up the original plain white design.
The Midnight Black and Cosmic Red variants are available first on the PlayStation Direct store starting today, January 21. You can order them now for $54.99 / £45.99. These two will then release more widely at other retailers starting February 18th. The other three colors – i.e. Nova Pink, Starlight Blue and Galactic Purple – will launch later in early 2022.
The release of these official PS5 covers comes after Sony filed a lawsuit against a peripheral company selling third-party custom faceplates in November 2020. This forced the company to cancel all existing orders and remove all faceplates from sale. . Almost a year later, Sony would get a patent to sell its own PS5 faceplates, which brings us to today and the launch of its official PS5 console covers in Midnight Black and Cosmic Red, with more expected to be launching later in 2022. If you fancy getting one for yourself to spruce up your console, here’s where to buy the PS5 covers right now.
