Sony finally announced official PS5 covers at the end of last year, giving you the opportunity to customise the color of your console's faceplate. In a post on the official PlayStation Blog, five new PS5 covers were revealed for the standard console and Digital Edition that can liven up the original plain white design.

The Midnight Black and Cosmic Red variants were made available first from the PlayStation Direct store on January 21, and you can order them now for $54.99/£45.99. 

These two will then go on a wider release at other retailers from February 18. The three other colors – that's Nova Pink, Starlight Blue and Galactic Purple – will launch later in 2022.

The release of these official PS5 covers comes after Sony took legal action against a peripheral company selling third-party custom faceplates back in November 2020. 

This forced the company to cancel all existing orders and pull all of the faceplates from sale. Almost one year later, Sony would secure a patent to sell its own PS5 faceplates, which brings us to today and the launch of its official PS5 console covers in Midnight Black and Cosmic Red, with more scheduled to launch later in 2022. 

If you fancy getting one for yourself to spruce up your console, or you've just bought a console through our PS5 restock hub, here's where to buy the PS5 covers right now.
