Where can I pre-order the colorful new PS5 covers and DualSense controllers?
Since the PlayStation 5 was announced, opinions on design and styling have been mixed. Lots of jokes and memes have been made about the gigantic size of the PS5 and how its two-tone monochromatic color and outstretched wings are reminiscent of an oversized router. Jokes aside, when Sony announced that the white covers could be removed by the user, there was a demand for replacements. Enough people wanted to own a blackened PS5 right away, which a small third-party home industry turned up selling unlicensed accessories until Sony came out with warnings.
Sony finally came over and announced its own official replacement covers for the disc-based PS5 and Digital Edition dubbed the Galaxy Collection in December, and they are arriving along with matching DualSense controllers. The upcoming faceplates are available in black and red – to match the DualSense controllers that Sony brought out this summer – as well as in completely new colors called “Starlight Blue”, “Nova Pink” and “Galactic Purple”.
The range of colorful DualSense controllers and console covers has a staggered launch window, with some debuting in January and others being held as exclusives through PlayStation Direct until February. others just come “soon”. Regardless of the exclusivity and release schedule, expect to debut at $ 54.99 for the replacement covers and $ 74.99 for the new DualSense colors. Here we review all of the options on offer, including where to pre-order them and when to expect them.

The red DualSense controller came out along with its black counterpart and features monotonous red face buttons and a two-tone, red and black design. It’s easily available at Amazon, Best buy, aim, Walmartand GameStop for around $ 75.
The red console cover allows you to transform the system yourself into a red and black look – like some kind of beautifully evil obelisk.

Just like the black version, they will be released on January 21st and will be available exclusively in Sony’s online shop until February 18th, when they will be available from other retailers.
Where can I buy the Starlight Blue, Nova Pink and Galactic Purple cases and DualSense controllers?

Finally, the Galactic Purple DualSense controller is only available for pre-order at PlayStation Direct – for the same $ 74.99.
