While the Spider-Man 2 PS5 console is currently highly popular, with lucky individuals managing to find it in stock, PlayStation has taken a slightly different approach when it comes to various designs and colors of its latest console. The white cover of the PS5 can be removed and replaced with a different design or color. There are several variants to choose from, including the Spidey versions that come with the Limited Edition console, and now three additional options have been unveiled.
By bestowing ornate names upon their covers instead of simply using the colors they represent, the three newcomers to the Deep Earth collection have been designated as Volcanic Red, Cobalt Blue, and Sterling Silver. So, essentially, red, blue, and silver. The silver model may be the most eye-catching of the three, as it is the most distinctive console cover unveiled thus far for the PS5. Not only is it silver, but it also has a glossy finish, giving your PS5 the impression of being dipped in chrome. The red and blue options also feature a metallic finish.
The State of Play also introduced three new DualSense colors, the same colors as mentioned above, so you can purchase a controller that matches your chosen cover. Once again, the silver variant is definitely the most eye-catching, although I would like to take a closer look at the DualSense and its matching cover before deciding to purchase the set. Anything that looks so glossy could easily get scratched, so it may not be the best color choice if your console is placed low and you have children and pets.
No prices, release dates, or pre-order details have been announced yet for the Deep Earth collection. PlayStation tends to unveil accessories like these prior to their availability. As for the cost, it seems likely that the new colors will be priced similarly to the other covers and DualSense options already available.
If that's the case, you can expect the controllers from the Deep Earth collection to cost around $75 each, although it wouldn't surprise me to find out that their metallic finish means they are slightly more expensive. The covers tend to be somewhat cheaper, with other basic colors being sold for $55. However, options that PlayStation considers somewhat more special are priced at $65, so there is a possibility that the items from the Deep Earth collection may cost slightly more.
There are plenty of options for those of you who are bored with your white PS5 consoles as we approach the third anniversary of the console. Xbox has hinted that it will follow PlayStation in some way, although several limited editions of the Series X console have already been released. While the outer casing cannot be simply removed and replaced, Xbox has unveiled a Starfield skin that wraps around your Series X. The design matches the highly popular Starfield controller that was released for sale this summer.
