I would too, if I had a PS5
When the PS5 was first announced, some fans were shocked to find that the console was going to be white, which was Sony’s first time deviating from a black color scheme for the PlayStation since the gray original console released back in 1994. Thankfully, if you’re not a fan of a brighter look, Sony has also released different console covers and controllers in a variety of colors. First they released Midnight Black and Cosmic Red colors for the console covers back in January of this year (you know, those being the classic gamer colors), but now there are some new variations on the horizon.
Introducing the Starlight Blue, Galactic Purple, and Nova Pink console covers. Ooh, aah. The covers are available for both the disc-based and digital-only versions of the PS5, and are available now for pre-order for $54.99 each. While the official release date for the covers is June 17, the matching controllers are also now up for sale, going for a staggering $74.99. I guess it costs to look that good.

Personally, I love the fun-colored consoles — if this thing is going to sit in plain view, something Sony seemed to want us to do based on the “artistic” design of the PS5, I at least like the option of being able to customize what it looks like. I had the limited edition Uncharted 4 PS4 for a while and loved it, so I’m waiting for the day I can get my hands on another console with a fun design, given they make PS5s like that… or that I can get a PS5 at all. At this point, I’ve waited so long to buy one legitimately, I have no idea when I’ll have an opportunity to purchase a PS5.
Oh well, in the mean time it’s fun to look at the pretty colors, right?
