Sony Has Finally Revealed PS5 Faceplates and New DualShock Colors

Sony has revealed that coloured PS5 faceplates, including black and purple, will be available in early 2022, along with new versions of the DualSense controller.

Sony has officially announced that the PlayStation 5 will receive faceplates and covers, as well as a variety of new PS5 DualSense colours, after more than a year of speculation. Since the PS5’s arrival in 2020, many have speculated if Sony would sell additional faceplates to allow users to customize their consoles beyond the traditional white. Many turned to unofficial clip-on plates in the absence of official options.

Since the original PlayStation, the PS5 is the first Sony console to be released in colour other than black. While many have appreciated its appearance, some have criticized the console’s ability to get dirty and the DualSense controllers. PlayStation gamers have purchased red and black DualSense controllers for a long time, but doing so has no longer matched the console. Many people assumed that the availability of coloured DualSenses meant the release of faceplates, which was hinted at in a Sony PS5 patent last month.

Sony announced the news on the PlayStation Blog, revealing four new console covers that allow users to customize their PS5 console to look like Midnight Black, Cosmic Red, Nova Pink, Galactic Purple, or Starlight Blue. The new pink, purple, and blue faceplates will match the previously available DualSense colours, and the black and red faceplates will match the previously released DualSense colours. According to the blog, the Nova Pink, Galactic Purple, and Starlight Blue PS5 console covers will be available starting in January 2022, with the Nova Pink, Galactic Purple, and Starlight Blue PS5 console covers coming in the first half of 2022. Apiece of the covers costs $54.99 each. The new DualSense colours should be available around the same time for PS5 owners. However, Sony notes that release dates may vary by region.

After initiating legal action against unauthorized versions of the PS5, many people expected Sony to release new faceplates for the PS5. After the PS5, various stores began offering their PS5 covers, which Sony did not dismiss. According to the business, the new and official faceplates, like the unapproved designs, will purportedly click into place and be available for both disc and digital versions of the console.

PS5 owners have been waiting for personalization choices for their consoles for a long time, and the first wave of faceplates could be only the start. Sony may release limited-edition faceplates in the same way that it releases limited-edition consoles to commemorate the debut of specific titles. Along with additional colour possibilities, fans may expect to see designs and patterns in the future, though it’s unclear when or what kind of personalization options PS5 owners can expect.
