Sony’s new PS5 controllers and console covers will leave you starstruck

Sony has announced a new set of PS5 controllers and console covers emblazoned by a galaxy-themed palette.

Sony has recently revealed a set of new PS5 controllers in a series of galaxy-themed colours, followed by a set of custom console covers in the same colours, which will be available for both the PS5 disc and digital editions.

It’s the first solid set of customisation options released for the PS5 so far, following a black and red controller announced a few months ago. During the pre-release marketing phase of the PS5, Sony did mention a new level of customisation coming to the console, so it’s great to see them delivering on that promise.

Sony also plans to launch them in other countries during 2022, and will announce the details at a later date.
