For props, the relative tranquility is over. Following the launch of the PS5 in November 2020, many of them wanted to take advantage of its design and its only availability in white to quickly respond to players wishing to give another color to their console. While some have managed to sell their unofficial facades, others have suffered the wrath of Sony’s lawyers. For its part, the Japanese manufacturer has taken its time. And he is now ready to officially give color to his console.
Sony has just announced the marketing of official fronts for PS5. Thanks to them, owners of a new generation PlayStation will be able to change the color of their machine. As you might expect, these facades will be offered in the same colors as the recently released DualSense controllers. In other words in “Midnight Black” and “Cosmic Red.” But that’s not all.
Sony has also planned for plates in three other colors. These are “Nova Pink, Starlight Blue and Galactic Purple. ” According to the electronics giant, the black and red PS5 facades will be marketed in France from January 2022. The other three colors are however planned for the “first semester 2022. “
United Colors of PS5
Logically, these facades will be offered on both standard PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition. And according to the manufacturer, their installation is very simple. For Sony it suffices “remove the original white facades of the PS5 and replace them with your new facades. “
As for their French price, it has not yet been communicated. For your information, the facade duo is sold for $ 54.99 in the United States. It is therefore possible to expect a selling price of around 60 euros in France.
The official PS5 facades and the controllers that go with them
In parallel with this announcement, Sony also revealed the upcoming release of new DualSense controllers. These PS5 controllers will be the same color as the facades just announced: Nova Pink, Starlight Blue and Galactic Purple. As previously mentioned, the Midnight Black and Cosmic Red controllers are already available.
As for the precise release dates of some of these products, Sony provides some information.
