The PS5 gets more color. Sony has released three more versions of the PS5 covers, which can initially be purchased via PlayStation Direct. The color versions are Starlight Blue, Nova Pink and Galactic Purple.
The PS5 came out with the ability to swap out the side panels fairly easily, giving the console a fresh coat of paint when needed. As early as the market launch of the new-gen hardware, some dealers began to offer the corresponding faceplates – and sometimes ran into legal problems.
In January 2022 followed suit and launched official PS5 faceplates or covers – initially in the variants Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. Today three more color versions followed. So you can now decorate your PS5 with the cover versions Starlight Blue, Nova Pink and Galactic Purple.

The sales launch was initially exclusively on PlayStation Direct, Sony’s official shop, where PS5 consoles are also sold from time to time. Regular retail sales will start on July 15, 2022.
To overview: The PS5 covers on PlayStation Direct
The PS5 covers are sold in two versions, compatible with the PS5 Standard Edition or the Digital Edition, depending on the choice. The latter does not include a drive, which affects the shape of the console. You can also find accessories like this on PlayStation Direct Pulse 3D headset and the media remote control. Only the PS5 is currently not available.
If 54.99 euros is too much for the PS5 cover, it might be worth taking a look at Amazon, where the accessories are regularly sold at a slightly lower price. Currently the Cosmic Red version is there available for 43.54 euroswhich only applies to the Digital Edition.
