Yep, it's happening: Sony has announced that official "console covers" for the PlayStation 5 will be available to purchase in 2022. These different coloured covers can be used to customise the look of your system, matching the current, and brand new DualSense colour schemes. And yes, there'll be different kinds of covers depending on the type of PS5 that you own — with a disc drive or without.
Midnight Black and Cosmic Red will be the first to colours to arrive, hitting a large number of territories in January. Nova Pink, Galactic Purple, and Starlight Blue are all due to release in the first half of next year.
Said territories include: USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Korean, and the Philippines.
There is a bit of a catch, however, in that these plates aren't cheap. We only have US pricing to go on right now, but you're looking at a recommended retail price of $55. Steep!
Sony stresses that replacing your console's covers is easy. The PS5's outer plates can be removed without any real fuss once you know how to slide them off.
Would you grab any of these covers? Give your PS5 a makeover in the comments section below.
Why are they all so boring
@mus422 I'm not sure what you expected.
The standard white covers are good enough for me, thx.
But that purple controller looks cool
55$!!! Sony must think I'm made out of money
I want the cosmic red ones.
This is the door opening to special edition art covers though. Will we see Horizon Forbidden West covers next year? God of War!!
You can bet your PS5 on it.
Price is steep but it reminded me i definitely want some black plates!
@Futureshark Seems likely if these are popular, doesn't it?
I wonder if Dbrand will sue them for copying their idea? 🤣
Maaaan that cosmic red on black though 😍
Galactic Purple is the one, but the pricing is taking the p*ss.
More than happy with my Dbrand Darkplates. These where never gonna be cheap with Sony being Sony now.
@ShogunRok Absolutely correct on both counts.
Isn't the pricing about exactly what the Darkplates from dBrand cost?! Not sure the reason for the whining on that front.
Finally! I still kinda wish they would do options with an integrated stand for your orientation of choice (i.e. protruding feet, flaring out the corners, out just making the back ⅔ of the disk drive side a box shape)
@get2sammyb something less Pastel shaded!
Is $55 really that much? I get it will be a little higher in Europe but isn't that about what was expected?
I think the price (assuming that's around £45 UK) is actually alright. I'm happy with the original white but midnight black and any future special edition plates are on my radar.
Missing the Christmas window is a bit poor from Sony in terms of maximising early sales though.
Hopefully themed ones are coming!
Swanky ad is all well and good but it makes them look like A4 ring binder folders - would prefer to see them actually on a console to get a proper idea. I've actually come to love the PS5 white and black design, so dont think i'll be going down this route (im still too scared to take the covers off to clean it anyway 😂)
Mix & Match. One side white one side black
If my console were a display piece I'd absolutely go for the purple. Given that I kinda want it to blend in while not in use, I'll be going for the black (it lives in the shade of a shelf). £55 seems pretty cheap for customisation options on a £450 console (I'm sure that's how the price will translate) as I had assumed they'd gouge us for more.
I'd absolutely go for something in antique pine veneer to match the furniture and the floorboards, but I'd guess I'm in the minority here, and will have to take up steam bending if I want it to happen.
Cheaper than I was expecting, and I really like most of them, but I can't see myself bothering. It's under the television now. I'll never see it again until it breaks or the PS6 comes out - whichever happens first.
They look good, hopefully they make "collab" ones (video game series themed) and sell them at an acceptable price (I fear they will make some but rarely and at a steep price)
@Gilvin i swear mr krabs is the CEO of SIE 😂😂
We need plates with designs... damn Sony, it's not that hard to know what PS fans want.
@johncalmc Mine is in the basement I give it food from time to time(when I feel like it). OH you were speaking about the ps5?! nvm, was talking about something else, apologies.
Not really liking any of these. The black is just boring and the colours garish. I feel the covers need more of an interesting, perhaps two tone, design.
They are boring. I was hoping for a Final Fantasy 7 Remake or anything more specific.
In any case I can now buy covers for a console that I can't buy. Not that I could buy the cover anyway since my region is not at the ones listed.
@thefourfoldroot imo , i think it’s ironic how their best design color is the default ps5 and default ps5 controller . i can’t believe they released the ps5 in white , they messed up , lol .
NGL, that pink.
A good first step, now just need custom ones, last of us or spiderman covers please.
I'll wait for a game specific special edition set
Imagine if they come with the VRR and 1440p update as well in April 2022.
What can the haters do then? Go back and discuss about fan noise and coil whine?
Oh my gosh I need the pink one!
Why are these plates available first in a few regions? why can't they just release them globally?
@thefourfoldroot yeah. I still like the stock white one very much.
Black controller rooks cool as well in my opinion.
Price tag is too high. In ger unexpected a price of 59€ then. A lot of money for a bit plastic/polycarbonate.
39€ would have been fair.
@Reeneman I really like the stock white one too. Although I can't really justify spending this much money to replace something I already like (at least for when I get my hands on a console), that pink is really tempting.
@mus422. You complaining about nothing🤔.sony bring what a lot of people have been asking for and here you are complaining.what excactly you expect it to look like.it looks exactly what i expected.word up son
I bought a can of plasti dip spray rubber and a can of satin black spray paint. Gave my Ps5 covers the old 5 coats of plasti dip and then painted satin black over the top. That way I can peel it off at any time 👌
White color is still my numero uno choice. 👍
The red one looks good, especially if it's combined with cosmic red dualsense. Also yay for releasing it in Indonesia
@theheadofabroom - Why not just buy woodgrain vinyl and wrap it with that? It won't be quite as nice as a veneer, but unless you look closely it can probably be fairly close, and is easy to apply.
You can get about 2m x 50cm for under £10 (I've just lined a bunch of kitchen cupboards hence knowing this random fact!)
Not buying until they release a NASCAR themed one.
Classic Gray is the only color I want.
Yes, white definitely looks the best so far.
I'd like to see what they look like in person. The PS5 is so damn massive it can make any colour look like an eye-sore.
$55 for two pieces of plastic, yikes. Could buy a brand new game for that sort of money.
Yeah, red one is an absolute beauty
Dbrand was trying to sell them for $70.
I like the white, but id I didn't $55 is having a laugh!
Also where are the interesting ones that might actually be worth $55 or more. E.g. Collaborate with street artists and graphic designers
The purple looks great, but not $55 great.
Couldn't vote, as white looks to be the best cover.
Seriously though, Sony need to release the PS5 before the covers
@playstation1995 I wasn't asking for $55 boring ass covers, son! - and I'm not sure who was?
@Hordak Classic Grey would look awesome.
The 20th Anniversary DS4 was a thing of beauty 👌
I was going to say, ‘25th Anniversary Dualsense and faceplates’ please 🙏but I think they missed it.
Ha, "Release colour plates!" some cry.
"These are boring, where are the patterned ones?"
PushSquare to a tee!
If I'm to spend this much I'll just get the dbrand darkplates with rounded corners.
Also how hard would it be to slap ellie or aloy or kratos on one of these geez sony... but no I'm supposed to be wowed by, wait for it... basic colors.
I will be buying all 5 console covers, along with the 3 new Dualsense color options. I'll also need 2 more Dualsense charging stands for the new controllers. The Dualsense is my favorite controller of all time, so I NEED every color option that releases lol!
I'm not interested in just a color change. If they offer them for a big new game release like a special one for the eventual Persona 6 and I'd bite.
I really like them and I'm glad to see Sony offering some simple, clean and well chosen colours. The red, light blue and pink all look great to me. BUT - the only problem is that I'm not going to buy a whole bunch of these, so now I'm totally going to be sitting on the fence to see what other designs are released in the future.
Personally, I'm hoping for some PS1-themed plates and controllers like they did with that special edition PS4. Either that or a 'smoked' transparent plastic in various colours could be pretty cool.
Wonder if they'll just do limited edition plates rather than actual consoles this gen??
@fR_eeBritney They can't, Sony has the Patent
The blue and pink colors look very nice. I'd be tempted to get matching controllers as well.
Glad Sony is starting to lean into the customization aspect of the console.
I will say, though: if there's a special edition PS5 with a Persona plate at some point, that might be enough to drag me off the sidelines.
@Col_McCafferty You're boring
How can they seriously sell more items for the PS5 with a straight face when no one can even get there hands on a console? It's actually a bit like teasing people these days
@Kopite that'd be greatly preferred imo. which is why I'd be hesitant to buy these fearing that's what they'll do, albeit it'll be way down the road after they've had ample time to cash in on this small revolution here.
@SplinterHell Vinyl wrap looks ok until you put it next to a lot of real wood, and then it sticks out like a sore thumb. That and I know the limits of my ability to get edges to meet well. Polycarbonate looks better in that setting if you can't get proper wood, because at least it's honest about what it's made of. Brushed chrome would go well too.
Obviously all of this is my taste and opinion, and anyone is free to feel differently.
Anyway i know there's this vanguard of Sony defenders that hate any criticism whatsoever but I'm just saying you give me some Peach Momoko TLoU plates (or something unique like that) and I'll pay whatever Sony wants.
These... these are colored plates y'all. I've seen colors. Like a lot of them. So yeah, this is kind of boring. Plus they give off sex toy-color vibes for me don't ask me why.
Yikes they are pricey but I’m a ‘PlayStation Kid’ with no will power so I’ll likely buy them. Having 3 PS5’s I’ll make good use of them. Hoping at the likely State of Play sometime in January a Horizon Forbidden West console plate and control bundle is announced!
I already got one off Amazon months back... it is all black and does the job. $55 is a bit much.
I got tired of reaching behind my TV (where I was hiding it) to swap out my game disc 😅
The cosmic red cover to go to Cosmic red controller I have would be sweet. But I also love the galactic purple and the black
I'll be picking up the black first but I like all of them tbf. The purple and pink controllers are gorgeous. Would have liked a grey one in the style of the ps1.
@zupertramp yeah I will be interested to see some testing done on those new dbrand plates. Since there is a question about whether they might impede the airflow of the PS5.
Overall these aren't really any more expensive than the dbrand covers. I don't know why there are so many babies crying about the pricing in here.
@Dalejrfanfreak Wow so boring
@Dreman99 They cheap and postage is included for PSplus users
Probably wait it out for game themed covers.
Black plates and a purple controller for me. Lovely! It's like the PS2 with the blue/purple discs. What a combo!
@Medic_Alert some people just like to pay a little bit extra, to get the best quality products. There's no need to save a few bucks to buy some flimsy third party crappy cover off of eBay.
I know the game bombed but I did like the yellow cyberpunk 2077 aesthetic. Could also imagine taking purple and adding green vinyl stripes for a subtle neon genesis Evangelion look.
The black one with the PS2 blue logo and etching on it would have been nice for its 20th anniversary. And use the original colours for the PS symbol on the top left.
Let me think for a moment; new covers or a new game? Hmmm! New game it is. Just as well that my console is hidden from view anyway...
I got third party black plates last January for half the price of these and honestly can’t see any difference between the pair. I’ll give these official ones a miss I think.
Already have ones off Amazon that look identical and were $30. They should have done this and launch.
@mus422. Everyone was waiting for it .word up son
I love the OG one but if I really had to chose a colour then the cosmic red matching the awesome cosmic red DualSense would be the one.
I need a new dual sense and I’d love to change my plates. Think I’m gonna go for the Galactic Purple. Normally I’m all about black but that purple resembles an old Chrysler color they used on the Barracuda.
3 months from now:
Purple: Add to cart
Pink: Add to cart
Blue: Add to cart
Red: Add to cart
Black: Out of Stock
I'm surprised at the colors. Nothing makes me feel like I'm ready to take on the zombie apocalypse in another grimdark PS exclusive more than hot pink!
Can I get beige?
@mus422 Nah they're not boring
The Midnight Black is far more inconspicuous than the attention grabbing white for burglars peering in through windows. Is it worth the asking price though? The cynic in me is thinking this was the plan all along and is just a way to recoup some of the losses on the console sale.
Wonder if this means a black PS5 with a black bundled controller is on the horizon? Still looks somewhat like an ugly Vorlon though...
Think I'll just stick to the white one for now, but if they bring out some custom ones with last of us or something might bite.
@Medic_Alert depends where you are I guess. I paid £43 including shipping for the Dark Plates when they were first announced before. They’re a nice quality with their own little take on the Sony shapes imprinted. Sure you can get cheaper but sometimes it nice to pay for just that little extra.
Interested to see how the official ones will be priced in the UK.
55 euros for such dull options wtf are they thinking?
Sony is just having a laugh with pricing this gen, it’s just whale hunting at this point. By all means, do what makes you happy, but this is so silly.
No wonder they were so aggressive to third party options being available if they were looking to charge $55 for a couple of 'coloured' plastic covers that probably cost less than few $'s to make (not inc packaging, distribution etc). If they cost near $55 on a PS5 build, I'd hate to know how much the Console would cost. That is ridiculous...
I guess I will end up buying a Spray paint can and spraying them myself to get rid of the 'hideous' white, maybe go Black as that will slim it down and make it less ugly on the shelf. Its a MESS of a design - especially if you have it horizontally to fit in the shelf - the worst 'stand' in history!
The Apple-ification of Sony is now complete.
Can't you already buy 'unofficial' ones for a hell of a lot cheaper that look fine
Darkplates 2.0 have a better form factor imo and you can customise the middle plate and led strips
Like what I would like for the Dualsense I wanted a Dark Blue plate or even a cool Trans dark blue one or any see-through one would look AMAZING Oh well. Might get the black one but saying that I like my stuff to stay with the original look really so might not bother doing anything erm as always
I hope this opens up the possibility of game collector's editions coming with special face plates. Gone are the days when you needed to buy a new console to get the fancy design, now they can just toss in a couple of face plates in the box.
They should have bundles with a matching controller.
@Enigk That's exactly why any potential burglars looking through my living room window can also see the heavy duty Kensington Lock on the back of my white PS5... they'd have to take the whole media unit.
Why don't they release more PS5's instead
Definitely picking up the purple controllers
Wish they didn’t have the two tone black. I think the two tone is nice with the white controller and maybe the red but that’s where it ends
God people are just never happy are they!
Why have 55% of people got no imagination. Come on, black how boring!! And why no yellow I have been hoping for a yellow for ages. Have to be pink 😁
Interesting colours! I prefer the purple and blue out of those five. Will I get one, with a corresponding controller? Probably not, but it’s nice to have the choice
Oh great!! How about releasing some games?
The purples my favourite although if there were more choice I'd probably go for like green
Too expensive and rather dull. Missed opportunity
'Ol DBrand gonna have to go back to selling cellphone covers. They charge around $70 for anyone complaining about Sony's pricing. Got away with it because they were the only "premium" option, with resellers throwing them on eBay for over 100.
Still... $55 is steep, no doubt.
Hey, pink is the new black!
We've got to hype up the other colors so black doesn't sell out immediately.
I guess the powder blue has a retro mid-00's vibe to it..... there has to be an angle to hype that. Somewhere.....but who would want to play old games?
ummm... isn't it time that they released a black version inside the box and don't force people to buy an accessory? if sony purposely does this for the life of ps5, that would be one of the more scummier things i have ever seen from them.
@mariomaster96 Agreed. If the console were black the internet would go bananas for a white cover.
Didn't MS try this with the X360 without much success?
Yeah that purple really makes the room pop. It's a real statement piece, sure to impress your friends and increase your social status.
Is this starting to sound like an early 20th century ad for a vacuum cleaner?
I'm about 50/50 right now on whether I'll buy one or not. It''d be Midnight Black for sure as that's the color I wanted the PS5 to be in the first place, but I'd have to see if I think it's worth it or not. I'm actually ok with the price, but I'll only get it if I think the PS5 will be my main console over my Series X when they release next year.
That Cosmic Red one is interesting too, but I'm not buying a third controller for it. I already own the Midnight Black controller, so that'll work.
I'm going to get the black so it matches my controller
Happy with the white thanks, £50 for two bits of plastic….
Each to their own, but “for the payers” as per usual $ony
If the PS5 came in black as stock (like ps4) I would be keen to get the white plates so in theory I have won here, nice 1 😁
Let me know when i can get a black PS5 without having to pay an extra 55 bucks. On second thought let me know when i can get a slimmer black PS5 at no extra cost. On third thought a slimmer black PS5 with a web browser at no extra cost, you know like the current XBOX.
If I'm going to change, it'll def be for the blue ones. Wouldn't mind the blue controller, but have a white and black one already.
@NoCode23 sounds like u want an Xbox and want to wait a few years for the slim PS5 model then... Don't get why the need for a game console to have a Web browser is so great. I def wouldn't pay for it anyway.
@UnlimitedSevens Your friends all play on consoles that match the Fortnite color palette, don't fall behind! 😆
I think all of them look very cheap and tacky except the black one. The tones are terrible IMO
@Royalblues Dear internet, in 2001 you laughed at the idea of a purple console. Now it's an object of desire with a premium surcharge attached. You all owe Miyamoto an apology!
That having been said, my purple og 3ds is best 3ds... 💜
@ Nexozi no i do not want an XBOX. I want a PS5 that is smaller, already black, and has a web browser. The current XBOX checks those boxes and does so at the same price as a PS5.
As for a web browser on a console. Why not? For a lot of basic info on sports, weather, news, game info, and google searches my PS4 browser is easy and convenient. I am using my PS4 browser now while a game i am playing is paused.
Sorry Sony but your a little late to the party and $55 smackers for an official plastic cover is ridiculous! Very happy with my $28 on sale back cover from Amazon.
@Ilovecoffee you need a bit more parts for a complete console
@NoCode23 Browsing on the Smartphone is more convenient isn’t it?
At least the ps5 has games. Xbox Checks more marks with these features, that’s true but I prefer Turnplätzen with good games.
My phone already has a very good browser
@NoCode23 I’m sure it’s Sonys idea to offer custom bundles over their own store like Microsoft did this in the past with controllers over their design studio. The pandemic might hold Sony back to offer the console in this way currently but I guess it will come some time in the future. Console + plates in your preferred colour + controller in the matching or preferred colour.
I’m still very happy with the white console. The colour fits perfectly to my loudspeakers
But also happy with the black controller.
I might buy new plates when there are special designs available.
@Royalblues Yep. I had a few 3ds and xls/nxls. Started with black, never had the aqua unfortunately, but that purple became my favorite. The nxl was better, but the purple just felt right! That color wasn't sold long, either. Still have it...I don't really use it anymore, but it's still here!
I am a big fan of the red and black covers...but will happily stick to my default white cover for awhile.
$55 is ridiculous
I see them putting plates with limited edition version of games.
Like a thunder maw on a plate with horizon for example (the real mvp of horizon)
55$ for 2 bland pcs of plastic?
They brought the "law hammer" upon any other firm that would make custom plates and made such a big deal out of it, only for them to release 5 versions of bland looking plates, and at a steep price.
For the money they could at least make some custom plates using their own franchises... God of War, Bloodborne, Horizon, TLOU, Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank etc... so many games and plate ideas they could have used, and they went with a boring design... Those are worth at the most 30-35$.
Anyway, i'll keep my PS5 as it is, because...
It sits hidden on the LG CX's support, which extends quite a lot behind it.
And since PS5 is very silent while gaming, you don't even know it's there.
A few firmware updates ago LG and Sony introduced support for the 2 devices, so one can control the PS5 interface with the LG Magic Remote. Also, one can start the PS5 using the TV, change automatically to the PS5's HDMI interface when the console opens etc (those last 2 were already available since the beginning of 2021).
My point is that for me, being as if it's integrated in the TV, is the best cover PS5 can have.
@Rural-Bandit Yes, it says so in the article:
And yes, there'll be different kinds of covers depending on the type of PS5 that you own — with a disc drive or without.
@Rural-Bandit I hate Adam Sandler movies.
Only „Uncut Gems“ was good
Forza 5 is good in the Xbox and I would play halo as well. But beside these two there are no exciting exclusives on the console.
@Col_McCafferty It amazing isn’t it. It’s almost as if different people might want different things.
As usual here people want us to be on our knees thanking the overlords at Sony for everything and not questioning anything.
Because some are happy at plain covers a year later and at 55 price point doesn’t mean everyone is.
People moaning and defending about others not being impressed is Push Square to a Tee!
@Emperor_Rusty this!!! White plates for the win. Imho.
Need Steel Black with a console attached to it.Want it to look like original Robocop )0 .Gonna spray it myself if i ever get it white.
Black is the only option for me, I reckon it could look quite sexy with those.
"Gamer Grifting 101!"
@Rural-Bandit For me, SNES held the "favorite console of all time" slot for a long time, and I thought it would be forever, but 3DS managed to supplant it, actually. That was just an amazing little dynamo that did everything SNES did right and then some, and was pocketable to boot. Even SNES nostalgia couldn't top the 3DS. I thought Switch would top 3DS with how it launched, but it slowed down quite a bit, and some of the divisive games like ACNH have managed (so far) to keep 3DS above it for me. There's a certain charm 3DS had that Switch doesn't quite replace. Although I'm one of the people that left 3D on max from launch to the end!
@Rural-Bandit I’ve been thinking about the black covers, but my current white console matches my Switch OLED, so I may just stick with what I’ve got. For now at least! 😂
Where is the promised VRR support Sony? Maybe work on that rather than more pointless plastic entering the world.
@Rural-Bandit For now I think my order is #1 3DS, #2 SNES, #3 was Switch through 2019, but with it trailing off, it might be supplanted by XSX over the course of the generation, which has a crack at shooting up to #1 if it keeps doing things right and Nintendo keeps getting things wrong. PS5 has a shot at moving up the ladder, too, depending on what services they start offering later on with the rumored "game pass competitor" It's a great starting point but still feels kind of "just the minimum." A generation can change a lot over 7+ years.
Good pick with the PS1. I never had a physical PS1 but I had a decent PS1 physical library that I emulated on PC, and I have to agree, PS1 was probably the most special of the PS's. PS2 was the most popular and it has some truly classic games (Dark Cloud, etc), but I don't think it lives up to the magic of the PS1. Vita is probably my second favorite PS. Poor thing.... I have hope the PS5 will seem more special on the way out than on the way in though. It depends on how scummy the business practices remain and how much they nickel and dime everyone. I feel like a reckoning will come sooner than later where MS's high value offering and the availability of Series S will balance the install bases of the platforms more so that Sony will finally have to react with some value offerings of their own, and then the real competition starts.
That's a cool story about your grandmother
I think I've actually kind of settled on the white for now. It's an eyesore, but it's iconic, and it's kind of become PS's color scheme starting with PSVR and Astrobot. I probably wouldn't have picked it at the start, but I like it now. My WiiU was black, and Wii is just different so 360 was really my last white console. Though, I now also have a white SWOLED, so maybe it's too much sameyness. Maybe I need purple joycon now
@Nexozi web browser on console is really convenient. why shouldn’t there be one ? consoles do everything else . the ps1 even played music CDs
@Rural-Bandit i used my ps4 web browser to watch movies on movie sites , and being able to lay from bed and browse on a big screen was so good . better than holding and watching through a phone screen at night , especially when i drift off to sleep lol
@NoCode23 @nomither6 For me I find it's far quicker and easier to browse sites and get sports updates just using a mobile. I don't go to sleep with the console or TV on. Also don't use websites to watch films. Just use the Netflix, Disney or blu-rays. But my point was more about not buying a games console because it doesn't have a Web browser. 🤯 I also used the CD player on the PS1. 😂
@Nexozi the movie sites i use are better because they have every movie & even new films that just came out ; and i use other streaming sites to watch NFL and other sporting events , so it was really convenient for me . and imo , just browsing the net on a big screen tv is satisfying as well .
and i wouldn’t be surprised if people did buy a console for whatever feature that isn’t gaming . remember , people bought ps2’s in droves because it was a dvd player . everybody has their preferences .
@Rural-Bandit i really , really hope so . i still miss communities even though i know that’s never coming back .
Not available for delivery to Northern Ireland??
If these were at launch I'd probably have gotten one. But now I have a PS5, controller charge dock and Switch dock all in white and it actually looks quite neat!
Ridiculous price point.... No wonder people look for cheaper alternatives. Sony is taking the piss. Nintendo are notorious for over pricing but Sony is not too far behind.
@Rural-Bandit LOL it kind of says it all when the PS1 controller was your favorite because you had smaller hands then
Yeah, I personally liked the PS3 era of Sony games more than the PS4's for the most part, despite the popularity of the latter. The first year was empty, the next 2 years had some good stuff (SoTC remake, TLG finally releasing, etc) and then a lot of the other stuff just wasn't that interesting. I do love GoT, but Sucker Punch has always been my favorite Sony studio, so that's no surprise. Sly and Infamous were easily my favorites in prior gens, and highly addictive. Horizon is pretty cool too. It has issues, and it's not necessarily my top pick game (I continuously back-burner it in favor of other things), but I think those two franchises (Plus R&C but I doubt we'll see another for a while) are my current "most appealing" PS series. I like GoW but I actually found myself getting bored around the second visit to the lake...there's too little variety in it (Ragnarok may fix that, but it's a flaw in the first nobody talks about.)
I only hope that someone fixes the giant Japan shaped hole in gaming that's starting to feel like PS360 again. Sony's kind of flipped Japan off. Xbox never had Japan....and Nintendo is too limited in hardware so even Falcom games run terribly. I'm missing that barrage of Japanese flare. It's not as dire as PS360, it's there....Scarlet Nexus, the Falcom games, Arise, but it's kind of scattered. Even PS4X1 era seemed like Japan was more focused, partly because PS4 still showcased it for the first half of its life....before Kaz left.
@Medic_Alert the new dbrand ones that are coming out completely change the look of the console, and possibly improve the airflow. I will watch analysis videos on the airflow for that however before I purchase.
I don't love the design of the PS5 but these may change my mind on waiting for a slim model.
