Update: Pre-orders will open on 28th July for a stunning new Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Limited Edition hardware model. The console, which features a custom design, will be available in two permutations, both with or without a Blu-ray disc slot. It’ll also come with a matching DualSense design, showcasing the duality of Peter Parker’s struggle against the Venom symbiote.

“The design was inspired by the in-game symbiote that’s taking over the console and controller, but you can still see some of the underlying red under the tendrils,” said Insomniac Games’ art director Jacinda Chew. “This represents the various ways players will experience the symbiote takeover in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. It’s a constant push and pull for dominance whether it’s internal or external and the outcome is not certain.”

If you’ve already got a PS5 console then you’ll be able to pick up the new DualSense controller or custom console covers as standalone purchases, so you don’t need to buy an entire new system to get this look. The console bundle, meanwhile, will include a download code for the full Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 game, available to enjoy from launch day, on 20th October.
