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.
