After threatening legal action against PlateStation 5 and PS5 Darkplates, it appears Sony is taking lessons from Take-Two Interactive's GTA: The Definitive T2 Hot Mess Edition playbook and now offering their own PlayStation 5 face plates marketed as 'PS5 Console Covers' available beginning next month in Midnight Black, Cosmic Red, Nova Pink, Starlight Blue and Galactic Purple colors. 🙄

Although PlayStation 5 consoles are still scarce at best due to PS5 Scalpers, this news comes following Sony's PS5 DualSense Midnight Black and Cosmic Red Wireless Controllers, with the latest additions also being Starlight Blue, Nova Pink and Galactic Purple joining the stunning interstellar selection of colors in the DualSense Wireless Controller Galaxy Collection. 🎮

Here's further details from Sony eSports, PS VR, Peripherals Marketing and Licensing Senior Director Isabelle Tomatis:

The Midnight Black and Cosmic Red PS5 console covers will become available starting in January 2022 at participating retailers in the following locations: USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Korea, and the Philippines.

The Nova Pink, Galactic Purple, and Starlight Blue PS5 console covers will also launch in these locations during the first half of 2022. We plan to launch the PS5 console covers in additional territories during the year, and we’ll announce those details as they become available.

The exact launch dates for both the new DualSense wireless controller colors and the new PS5 console covers in select regions may vary by location, so be sure to check your local retailer for availability.

In the US, UK, France, and Germany, a number of these new products will be available via early access for Direct.PlayStation.com customers. The DualSense wireless controller in Galactic Purple will be available starting January 14 (while supplies last), and will be offered at other participating retailers starting February 11.

Additionally, the PS5 console covers in Midnight Black and Cosmic Red will be available on Direct.PlayStation.com starting January 21 (while supplies last), and will be offered at other participating retailers starting February 18. Stay tuned for more information.

I was able to pick up the first batch of dark plates before Sony shut down dbrand. They're pretty intense. I'm excited about the new controllers though!
