The new PS5 covers in three galactic colors — Starlight Blue, Galactic Purple, and Nova Pink — are available in select regions starting today. Those who have been waiting to buy console covers to match their PS5 DualSense controllers in those same colors, which released earlier this year in January, will finally get the chance to do just that.

As announced earlier in March through an update to an official PlayStation blog post, these new PS5 console covers will be available through PlayStation Direct in the US, UK, France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg. They will be available through other outlets starting July 14, with PlayStation recommending that consumers check their local retailers for availability. It is unknown when those outside of those regions will be able to purchase these covers.
Buyers will need to make sure that the console cover they get is specific to either the standard PS5 or the disc-less PS5 Digital Edition console. Either way, they cost $54.99 and join the other two colors Midnight Black and Cosmic Red, bringing the number of color options for console covers and PS5 Dualsense controllers to five.
Until June 30 while supplies last, free standard shipping is available with any purchase of a PlayStation game or accessory through PlayStation Direct. These console covers are limited to one per color per household due to high demand. So if you’re interested in these products, it’s best to purchase them now, as even the special Firefly Edition of The Last of Us is sold out with no official announcement of a restock.
In other news, Skull and Bones may skip versions for PS4 and Xbox One as the game is only rated for next-gen consoles, and Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Reunion is an HD remaster of the original FF7 prequel.
